Now for the fourth lesson. In the previous lesson, we had covered the ka_grantha varga along with Jihvāmūlīya (and Ardha-Visarga ardha_visarga_grantha). Henceforth, Roman/Tamil/Devanagari equivalent will not be used to for letters that have been already covered. 

 

We will see two more Vargas now.

Letters similar to that in Tamil    

      

nja_similar_grantha

 

Similar Letters

If Lesson-1 is recalled, I had said there is another letter similar to the Anusvāra. The letter should have been already recognized by now. Anyways, here it is

 

ttha_similar_grantha

 

The Smaller circle denotes the Anusvāra and the bigger circle represents ṭha ட² ठ. Try reading the below word 🙂 (all the characters have been covered in the lessons)

 

kaMTha_grantha

 

Lots of pretty circles nah ? 😛

 

BTW fourth lesson is officially over. In the next part next two vargas – /pa ப प/ & /ta த त/ will be covered, along with the lone Ayogavāha, which is left over from the previous lessons.
