This post is in response to Rakhi’s request. Comments section of Transliterated Hindi Vowels
Rakhi said ”
what is the difference in the usage of ऋ and र ? what should we use when we write Ritika?
@Rakhi …. Here you go…
ऋ – is a vowel
र is a consonant.
The name Ritika has come from Sanskrit meaning “movement” “course”, “style”, “rules and regulations”. This is written with a र .
A similar word “Ritu” meaning season, derived from Sanskrit too is written with the ऋ.
