I am sure Hindi readers trying to read Romanized Hindi would have similar diffucult time with certain words. What I dont' get though is why there has been no serious/massive push on the part of the Indian government to work in partnership with the digital world to make Hindi keyboard go mainstream among Hindi speakers. I would think that the longer you wait to push such an initiative, the lesser the chance of adoption, especially when old habbits die hard.
I did not realise Hindi is tonal. Look what happened Pin Yin 100% to 1% in the blink of an eye.
