shob­hika – An OpenType De­vanā­garī font de­signed for schol­ars

This pack­age pro­vides a free, open source, Uni­code com­pli­ant, OpenType font with sup­port for De­vanā­garī, Latin, and Cyril­lic scripts. It is avail­able in two weights—reg­u­lar and bold. The font is de­signed with over 1600 De­vanā­garī glyphs, in­clud­ing sup­port for over 1100 con­junct con­so­nants, as well as vedic ac­cents.

The Latin com­po­nent of the font not only sup­ports a wide range of char­ac­ters re­quired for Ro­man translit­er­a­tion of San­skrit, but also pro­vides a sub­set of reg­u­larly used math­e­mat­i­cal sym­bols for schol­ars work­ing with sci­en­tific and tech­ni­cal doc­u­ments.

The project has been launched un­der the aus­pices of the Science and Her­itage Ini­tia­tive (SandHI) at IIT Bom­bay, and builds upon the fol­low­ing two fonts for its De­vanā­garī and Latin com­po­nents re­spec­tively: (i) Yashomu­dra by Rājya Marāṭhī Vikās Saṃsthā, and (ii) PT Serif by ParaType. We would like to thank both these or­gan­i­sa­tions for re­leas­ing their fonts un­der the SIL Open Font Li­cence, which has en­abled us to cre­ate Shob­hika.
