1. You also need to put in Rule NO. 3 -
WORDS ARE SPELLED IN ROMAN LETTERS ONLY WITH USING HINDI MATRAS ..BE IT A HINDI WORD OR A ENGLISH WORD
eg. chor - hindi word but written in roman with hindi matra
road - english word still used in roman using hindi matra

2. G please write with full curve going up and the small bar
( may be you can write all the alphabets using the top bar then it will become clear which looks proper and dosenot look like a hindi word )
3. All the alphabet will be used in capitals only
if i think of more points will tell you
GOOD WORK!!!
