From a report titled "Now, only Marathi in BMC" (Hindustan Times, June 7 2008):
"Municipal Commissioner Jairaj Phatak has decided to stick to a state government resolution of 1966, stating all official communication should be in Marathi. ... For those who don't understand Marathi, 'It is simple, the script is the same as Hindi,' Phatak said." [Emphasis added]
Good news, then! Thanks to Commissioner Jairaj Phatak, I have realized that I understand Konkani, Marathi, Nepali, and Sanskrit, all of which have the same script as Hindi.
Also thanks to Commissioner Jairaj Phatak, I have realized that I also understand Spanish, French, Turkish, Irish, Gaelic, Welsh, Italian, Polish, German, Latin, Czech, Portuguese, Dutch, Danish, Flemish, Afrikaans, Malagasy and several more, all of which have the same script as English.
