Re: Strange GAKT for यहूदी

No lol

यहूदी sounds like 'Yahooti'. It's most probably a typo of Yahoo.

In India, people use virtual keyboards (i.e. http://gate2home.com/Hindi-Keyboard ) to type in their native language, but some people also use 'phonetic' input methods, whereby ascii text is transformed into, say, Hindi according to the phonetics of what is being typed. Try one here : http://www.google.com/inputtools/cloud/try/ . You see widgets like that in comment sections of blog posts etc. Because Indian languages typically suffer from lack of proper hardware,(i.e. no physical Hindi keyboard) a lot of people prefer that type of input method. I'm pretty sure for instance that the most popular input method for Bengali is a phonetic IM.

Now if you go to Google India and use the Hindi interface, you'll see that Google Instant implements that automatically (If you type in english, Google Instant will try to match the phonetics of what you are typing to a Hindi keyword). If you start to type the 'Yahu' you'll see the word for Jew is the first suggested keyword.
