The Hindi alphabet is derived from the Devanagari script and is used to write the hindi language.
Hindi has many alphabets, each of which consists of a number of vowels and consonants. Vowels are written with independent alphabets while consonant letters are either hand written with an appendage or created through combining two adjacent letters.

The Hindi language is one of the most spoken languages in India, and it shares many similarities with the English language. When it comes to spelling, there are two different ways to write words in Hindi: using the Devanagari alphabet or the Roman alphabet.
The Devanagari alphabet is traditionally used to write Hindi words. Each letter has a corresponding sound and many letters have different forms for when they occur at the beginning of a word or syllable.
The Roman alphabet is often used for convenience because it's an easier way to represent how words look in English. The Roman alphabet doesn't have as wide of a range of sound options as Devanagari does, so some letters may be borrowed from other languages that use the Latin Alphabet such as Portuguese or German.
