Well, but I think it's nothing special than the hindi characters showing on MS word. This must be very simple thing considering India as a IT giant.elfreako said:OMFG!!! Those Hindi characters lit up on the LED destination board underneath the English look absolutley fuc&#ing fantastic!!! I'm sorry, but I don't normally associate seeing Hindi characters displayed in so High-Tech an environment! Good on ya India! Next, we need to see those underground metros expanding to Mumbai, Bangalore and Chennai.
