Hey folks,

Shiju has published an interesting post on numerals in an Indic context.
 It's a really fascinating overview - including how numerals are depicted
across Indic languages, their use across languages, the policies adopted by
the various Indic communities, the need for some community decisions to
take things forward, a bit of Shiju's personal grumble on the fact that
Hindi film posters are no longer in Hindi :-) and a picture of a Northern
Railways bed sheet!

Intrigued?  Read more on either on

and
or the Chapter 
blog<http://blog.wikimedia.in/2012/06/01/numerals-in-indic-languages-indic-wikipedias-2/>
.
