bringing up this old post of mine, I have found examples of spellings (in devangri script) or spoken audio examples of most of my original questions. But........a while ago i saw 'tabla' written in Devangri, and it appears I may have been pronouncing it incorrectly! how embarrassing!
So, if anyone could help clear this up, I would be deeply appreciative!
Is it: 'tuh-blaah'
All along I have been saying the latter, and now it appears the former is correct?
