Now you can view udgam without downloading and installing the "Udgam fonts". If you cannot read it means that you refused to use dynamic font installation. You should close your browser, reopen it and access A dialog box should pop up asking you if you want to use dynamic fonts in which you should click "ok".   Dynamic fonts should work for both PC and UNIX users. Dynamic fonts would not work if you want to edit a file using using Udgam fonts.

If this does not happen or for some reason you still cannot read in Hindi either send us a mail explaning the problem at ( or follow the conventional method of font installation given below.

Hindi Fonts: download, install & refresh the web page

Novices:(Win95/98/NT)-download and execute-SetupUdgam.exe(700kb)This should put udgam.ttf in "fonts" directory under the windows directory.Double click udgam.ttf and refresh the page

Pros: (Win95/98/NT) Download (or udgam.exe 45kb-self extracting zip) into c:\udgam and copy the udgam.ttf file into "fonts" directory under the windows directory.

**If unsuccessful install on (some) Win95 systems(refreshing web page does not show hindi fonts): Start-> Control panel->Fonts->File-> Install new Fonts: c:\udgam\udgam.ttf

Dynamic fonts would not work if you want to edit a file using using Udgam fonts. Editing a file using udgam fonts would require font installation on your system.



To view UDGAM on UNIX system do the following

1) In your home directory make a directory called Udgam.

2) Copy the three files fonts.dir, fonts.upr , Udgam.pfa, and README in Udgam directory

These are compressed files.Uncompress them DO NOT CHANGE THE NAME OF THE FILES

3) cd Udgam

4) Open the file fonts.upr and modify the path in //dsk4/users/anshu/hindi to //your home dir/Udgam

5)Execute the following commands on the prompt

                       xset fp+ `pwd`                     (These are back quotes and are generally above ESC button)

                      xfd -fn "-unkown-udgam-normal-r-normal--0-0-0-0-p-0-iso8859-1"

Doing xfd should pop up a window with hindi letters in it.Click on one of the characters and quit.This readme file will be available in Udgam directory.  

Now exit netscape and reopen it.Go to Options->General Preferances->Fonts->Use the proportionsl fonts

and choose Udgam from there. (For those who use Netscape communicator go to Edit->Preferances->)Go to and you can read it in hindi. Once you see hindi fonts you'llsee all ENLISH instructions also in Hindi.However now you can change the fonts to Times Roman or whatever youwant. However not all letters of hindi are available on UNIX.This is due to the  technical difficulties because some keys are defined using ALT keys, ESC keys which are not compatible with font standard of UNIX. Neverthless you can largely view the magazine. For any difficulties in downloading the fonts send mail to

Our special thanks to Nidheesh Dubey for his help on installation of Udgam fonts on Unix machine.
