Is my font correctly displaying Hindi?
Tuesday, December 16, 2014 12:46:00 PM
This is called
and it is the font designers choice where to make the letters join.
Although while writing one would normally start the symbol from the letter स (so I'd say the second version is more correct, but for computers they're both the same)

Ah! I was looking at tfd yesterday and thinking "I've been using this site for years and it still looks just like they way it was when I started using it. See this feed-a-hungry-child ad. It is still there. See this printer-friendly-page. It is still there.

I second that.
Someone told me that somebody was fooled today.
Somebody told me that someone was fooled today.

Am i using the word PROVIDE in the right place

Even though you say 'kindly' you are still giving an order 'provide me!'. Unless you are writing this to a junior, it sounds very imperious!
That's an eye-opener for me

Oh my God! I solved the code. It's a matter of national security, so can't disclose anything about it to you.

I think this is similar to the question whether a team is singular or plural. Pakistan wins. Pakistan win.
If you take an infinite number of worlds as a bunch it's singular.
If you take an infinite number of worlds individually it's plural.
