Since 1 qualified myself in Urdu Shorthand in the 
Tineknow Christian School of Commerce,, I always experi- 
enced some difficulty in following speakers using a large 
number of Sanskrit words. Consequently I set about to 
adapt the Isaac Pitman System of shorthand to the Hindi 
Language. In the following pages the results of my 
study and practical experience are laid down and I trust 
that by going carefully through them a shorthand writer 
will feel no difficulty in following a speech studded with a 
large number of Sanskrit words and quotations from 
Sanskrit Scriptures. 

1 take this opportunity of expressing my gratitude to 
Sir Isaac Pitman and Sons, Ltd. Bath, England, for 
their kind permission to let me use their shorthand signs* 
portions and extracts from their Copy right Text books 
for the purposes of this book. 

All through the book I have kept one object in view 
i.e.) the students, working on the Pitman system either 
in English or Urdu, may find it easy to pick up Hindi 
shorthand with the least possible delay, 

I have taken the liberty to introduce the views of my 
dear father Pandit Jwala Pershad Trivedi, that every 
thing in the world is an evolution of Om and I trust the 
readers will find them interesting and instructive, 

o 

Needless to add that this system has been worked by 
me for several years and I have not only found it useful 
but efficient and reliable.

A lote on the System of Hindi Shorthand, 

This work is an improvement on the system of Urdu 
shorthand which suffers from a defective vernmala 
having sometimes several characters for similar sounds 
in Hindustani it has got separate characters to repre- 
sent kha (** 5 ) kha (^) ga (^J) gha () ja (tr).za 0) and 
again za (3) pha (**i) fa (^) while there are no charac- 
ters for some of the most important sounds ^g*,, sya 
(pi) shya (spqr) swa (**) shwa (^=f) vaya (srwr) yawa (*ra) 
gya (w) ksha ($i) mam (*f) which so frequently occur in 
Hindustani. It has also an / hook, although there are only 
a few words having / at^heir end, The grammalogues, 
too, in Urdu shorthand, do not contain all the words for 
which logograms ought to have been provided e.g., there 
are no logograms for aiye (Jl) vyakhyan (e)-*tf *?>) 
Chanda (*****) deputation (&& *$.')) khandan 
Mandli (^&*>+) Sabhapati (^i *+*) honorary 
volunteer (>* 2 ^I>) lecture (^^) resolution (^>*-S;)) 
angrez (W^'i) angrezi (^;^ ; I), etc., although there 
have been included a number of grammalogues seldom 
used in speech e.g., fizamanna (^^5 f^) chande 
(tf.^9-) madude chand (^'^ ^^i^^*) janaba (**'**) 
filbadih (^**| ^), etc, 

Tjie fourteen fundamental characters of this system 
represented by the seven sutras and their shorthand 
equivalents (page 11) enable the student at once to 
master the 'oyanjans of Hindi shorthand. This coupled 
with the knowledge of swars (pages 18 and 30) is suffi- 
cient to enable any student of ordinary intelligence to 
write shorthand correctly at the rate of So words per 
minute. 

THe further chapters on circles, loop, hooks, halving 
and doubling principles then become an easy study on 
account of the interest in the subject the student begins 
to feel on his every day-progress and after finishing the 



( 2 ) 

chapters on Prefixes, Suffixes, Grammalogues, Contrac- 
tions and Phraseography he should feel no difficulty in 
taking down any speech at the rate of 150 words per 
minute. 

The grammalogues of this system have been selected 

from among the words most frequently used in speech 
and the outlines of which are tedious; so that by 

memorizing them a student has a great advantage when 
he has to take down a lecture in vernacular. 

The adoption of the ya hook instead of the / has 
given simple outlines for a large number of words 
having ya sound at their end. 

The elimination of unnecessary characters and the 
introduction of important ones has enabled the system 
correctly to record all sounds occurring either in Hindi 
or Urdu. 

Among the most important improvements, not found 
in Urdu Shorthand and which have contributed to make 
the outlines of this system more simple and easy than 
those of the Urdu Shorthand, may be mentioned ; the 
adoption of the Hindi system of teaching vyanjans and 
swars, the joining of the dip thongs (pages 30, 31) the 
joining of the termination wat, the introduction of the 
triphone and the adoption of the ya hook instead of the 
little used /. All these improvements and various other 
devices adopted from the Pitman's system have greatly 
simplified the study o this system and given it a 
decidedly higher place than any other rival system either 
in Hindi or Urdu. 

The opinions of a number of competent authorities 
on Shorthand as well as on the Hindi and Sanskrit 
Literatures given in the end are enough to prove th<? 
great usefulness of this -book.
