Hindi Numerals

Posted on 28. Mar, 2009 by in Hindi Language

Namaste (नमस्ते)!

We’re going to take a look at Hindi numbers. Although Indians can read Arabic numerals like 1, 2, 3 etc. we still have our own number system with different symbols. Also, keep in mind that the symbols are really easy to read and predictable. It’s the pronunciation that’ll kill you.

0 : () shoonya

1 : () ek

2 : () do

3 : () teen

4 : () char

5 : () paanyach

6 : () chah

7 : () saat

8 : () aath

9 : () nao or nau

10 : (१०) das

So here are the ways you would spell and pronounce these numbers in Hindi:

0 : (शून्य)

1 : (एक)

2 : (दो)

3 : (तीन)

4 : (चार)

5 : (पांच)

6 : (छः)

7 : (सात)

8 : (आठ)

9 : (नौ)

10 : (दस)

    Hey how do you write the number “46″ in Hindi numerals? I wanted to get it as a tattoo, and I wanted to make sure i got the correct symbol for it.

    thanks!

    If not Hindi, then Arabic? or Devanagari Numerals? these are the names that come up when I look it up online, forgive me if they’re not at all similar..

    Monique,

    If you look under “recent posts” on this page, you’ll see that I’ve done a post on 31-50. I’ve provided the number 46 in Hindi numberals and in writing so feel free to pick whichever.

    Hello! I would really appreciate your help with writing a number in devanagari numerals. The number is: 13154839 . It is a very important number to me and has alot of sentimental value and wanted to have it tatooed, so I want to be 100% sure that it is written correctly.
    Thanks for your support.
