bangpypers and indlinux-hindi,

I am taking up Anands suggestions below and writing you with a request
for help in providing some links or simple examples of Python scripts
that show Hindi Language and script.

The general idea is to make Python accessible to people who do not
speak English as their first language, particularly ones who speak
languages not written in ASCII or Latin text.

Our HindiLanguage page is here:


Any links to Python tutorials or explanations of code examples in
Hindi would be most appreciated.  The same goes for other languages
spoken in the area of the Indian subcontinent.

Thank you for taking this request into consideration.

Thanks for taking the time to reply, and for the suggestions.

I'll follow through on both of them.  I had no idea there was an Indic
mailing list, so thank you!
