thanks! you took the action immediately. there is nothing wrong about the spelling. my father used to write it that way and it is there in all the documents right from my birth. invariably all computer programms convert it to ‘v’ by default. varnna daridrii lipiikaduun aapan kaay apekshaa karnaar? ‘devanaagari’ sarkhi paripurnna dhawnaytmak lipii naahi.
