दुखका साथ भन्नु पर्छ  "WE DO NOT HAVE DEVANAGARI INPUT STANDARD"

I don't know about separate LTK layout of Devanagari keyboard. Have to see
before discussing.  Whatever the traditional layout; i.e. ब क म ा न
keyboard, ज्ञ (not a single character), ई, घ, द्ध (not a single character,
separately not necessary), छ, ट, ठ, ड, ढ, ण, ओ phonemes and all numbers and
some symbols are kept in the upper row which is not distributed according
to the international keyboard layout standard. If you say 'anyway it works
thats why its OK, it does no matter. When you have to do different types
of  job like automatic input transliteration mapping from one language to
another e.g. from Nepali to English, Hindi, Urdu and Bengali and Arabic
etc) automatic key-stroke mapping becomes problematic.
At least Romanized layout followed some international layout norms. But
there are some characters to be added to complete Romanized layout.
Again दुखका साथ have to say
 "WE DO NOT HAVE DEVANAGARI INPUT STANDARD"
