Finding and Selecting Prakarans
You can find prakarans based on their alphabetical listing, by category, by writer, or the publication media.
Moreover, you will be able to search the text in Unicode Gujarati or English (for transliteration text).
Alternatively, you can enter the prakaran number in the "Go To" box , then click "Go" to quickly go to that prakaran.
Language and Font
This site has 3 options for selecting and displaying text: Unicode Gujarati, English transliteration, and Harikrishna Gujarati.
- Unicode Gujarati - the text is in Unicode Gujarati, which is viewable in most popular operating systems, including Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux distributions. If you cannot view the Unicode Gujarati text, see All about Gujarati Typing for information on how to install Gujarati language support.
- English transliteration - the English text was generated using my Unicode Gujarati to English transliteration tool. The tool is not flawless and I have not paid attention to the accuracy of the conversion since my main focus has been to provide the text in Gujarati.
- Harikrishna Gujarati - this text is in non-Unicode format using the popular Harikrishna font. Although I'm not in favor of non-Unicode text as Unicode is superior, I've include this text using my Unicode to non-Unicode conversion tool. This option is best suited for mobile devices that do not support Unicode Gujarati yet.
This site is best viewed with Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 or higher, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari, and Opera. The site works with IE 7 and 8 but will lack design elements that are seen with IE 9.
The site is also compatible with mobile browsers such as Safari on the iPhone, stock browser on Android, mobile Firefox, mobile Google Chrome and Dolphin Browser.
Google Android finally supports Gujarati Unicode starting with version 4.0 (Icecream Sandwich). However, the Gujarati font is not included. This site uses an embedded font to display Unicode Gujarati.
