    Maha Shivaratree

    are auspicious.

  2. This Devanagari-ish font is very popular in New York City on restaurant signs. There are similar Thai-ish and Hebrew-ish varieties.

  3. AJP : Maha Shivaratree are auspicious

    It’s all right to find Maha Shivaratree auspicious, but the singular should be used here since it is the Great Night of Shiva. Some reading here : http://hinduism.about.com/od/festivalsholidays/p/mahashivratri.htm

    John : This Devanagari-ish font is very popular in New York City on restaurant signs.

    These Roman characters with a top “washing line” (as Language Hat put it) are often used for invitation cards as well. What is “funny” here is that the blue political party apparently wanted to be seen as Indian/Hindu as possible, something that doesn’t naturally come to the mind when thinking of the PMSD, which would traditionally be associated with the Creoles. The banknote displayed on this post shows an archetypal member of the Creole community and for years he had been the leader of that party. As usual in current Mauritian practices, religion, politics and business are thoroughly mixed.

    I was merely using google translate; blame them.
