Time for another Exotic Summary 🙂
 
In the previous two lessons, we have seen the various Vowel Signs associated with the Vowels. We will be seeing a summary of all those signs in this lesson.
 
The Dotted Circle that may appear in the below images. It denotes the position of the Consonant with the Vowel sign.

The Vowel Killer- Virama
 
virama_grantha
The Virama can be placed either directly over the Consonant or adjacent to the consonant. Consonants like ta_grantha  na_grantha   ma_grantha have special vowel-less forms like t_viramalig_grantha_corrected   n_viramlig_grantha   m_viramlig_grantha respectively. 
  
Variants

lR_grantha has a Variant Vowel sign, where the vowel is placed below the consonat as in kl_subbase_grantha.  Also, au_grantha has a variant Vowel sign without the adjancet ‘kombu’  khau_grantha.
