    Today's students may not even know that the alphabet of Indian languages is full of science. Each letter of the alphabet is logical and placed sequentially with precise calculations. Such a scientific view is not ingrained in the alphabet of other foreign languages. E.g. See:

    *क ख ग घ ઙ* - This group of five is called *kanthavya* because the sound comes out of the throat while pronouncing this. Try pronouncing.

    *च छ ज ज ઞ* - These five are called *palate* because the tongue will feel palate while pronouncing this. Try pronouncing.

    *ट ठ ड ઢ ण* - These five are called *Murdhanya* because while pronouncing this the tongue will feel Murdhanya. Try pronouncing.

    *त थ द ध न* - This group of five is called *Dantavya* because the tongue touches the teeth while pronouncing this. Give it a try

    *प फ ब भ म* - This group of five is called *Aushthavya* because both the lips meet to pronounce this. Give it a try

    Any other language in the world has such a scientific approach? We need pride for our Indian language but at the same time let us know why and let the world know.

    Very interesting read.

    I wonder how various languages formed.
