Search the web for devanagari words.

I created a small form using which you can search the web for unicode devanagari words. It is very cumbersome to actually enter unicode devanagari characters using qwert keyboards, so I have adopted the phonetic transliteration scheme from Manogat website. Do give it a try:

Start typing devanagari words phonetically and you will see unicode characters in the input area. When you hit enter, the phrase will be submitted to google.

Update: (2009-07-14) I have taken down my link now, as there are many more effective alternatives to do this. Check out the following pages from google:
Google Indic Transliteration (Marathi, Hindi)
Bookmarklets to transliterate any text element on any webpage.
A simple form for transliterating any text.

I was looking any scripts or online tool which will convert roman character into devnagari unicode, then I came across this search form which you have created. It is wonderful facility to search across web in unicode. I want to use the same on my site http://mhani.tripod.com I have my mhanis stored in unicode so I want to search through the all mhanis and show the user which contains that word.
