Hindi: kajhimaa


New Member
Hello everyone.

As you can see from my name I`m a cabinetmaker, and in my spare time I`m restoring antique furniture. Today afternoon this lovely sideboard landed in my home. For the first sight I look inside and right at the back I found a little tag, with "From:Halema To: ???" on it. I was wondering if any of you could help me to solve this clue. It might not be an important thing, probably just somebody`s name, but it would be a nice thing to know what is it saying. (The Hebrew was just a wild guess, so don`t be offended if it isn`t hebrew.)

So your help would be greatly appreciated in this restoration project.

    That's definitely not Hebrew. It looks like Hindi or some other Indian language to me.

    I'm not sure if its Hindi, it appears to be Bengali. But Hindi is a possibility, some language like that - check on Omniglot.com for an alphabet confirmation.

    It is Hindi. I think it says /kajhimaa/ which I have no clue is! I could of read it wrong. The letter used for what I think is /jh/ is not oftenly used. Maybe Linguist of Macta could confirm.
