Welcome to Anirdesh

This site started out with a tutorial on how to type Gujarati on an English keyboard. I created a Gujarati keyboard layout with the keys placed phonetically on an English keyboard. As I learned more Javascript and PHP, I started adding more sites with some useful information. I created pharmacokinetics calculators for vancomycin and aminoglycoside dosing, which is helpful for pharmacists. I also added a guide to modifying the Microsoft Office Fluent Ribbon, which led me to create Microsoft Office tabs for Gujarati and Unicode to help others type Gujarati faster in Microsoft Word.
