Twin Devanagari fonts

Nakula and Sahadeva are “twin” Devanagari fonts, which have been developed by IMRC, India, for the University of Cambridge.

Both fonts are TrueType/OpenType, and are Unicode compliant. Both contain all the conjuncts and other ligatures (including Vedic accents) likely to be needed by Sanskritists. Nakula follows the Bombay style of Devanagari, with rounded glyphs and little thin/thick variation. Sahadeva is in the Calcutta style, with more angular glyphs and greater contrast between thin and thick strokes. The actual shapes of some of the glyphs (e.g. initial “a”, retroflex “n”) also differ according to the style of the font.
