Hello Goutam,
 
Thankyou for these examples.  Could you please clarify whether they are
examples you have scanned from documents or that you have created yourself.
 
If you have created yourself, it would be useful to show the Unicode
characters involved in the email.  As a suggestion, a handy way of doing
this is to copy the characters into the cut & paste field of UniView[1]
(then hit return) and copy into the mail the list of characters produced.
Eg. 
 
0995:   ?  BENGALI LETTER KA
09CB:   ?  BENGALI VOWEL SIGN O
09B2:   ?  BENGALI LETTER LA
0995:   ?  BENGALI LETTER KA
09A4:   ?  BENGALI LETTER TA
09BE:   ?  BENGALI VOWEL SIGN AA
 
If these are examples scanned from documents, I personally would prefer to
see more of the context, at least the whole paragraph.  I would also like to
know the sources.

Also, there seems to be some inconsistency wrt the positioning of the large
and small characters.  Please try to describe the reasons for this.

Thanks,
RI

	Dear All,
	
	 I am attaching few examples of first letter styling in Bengali with
this  mail.
	 These examples show styling over drop syllable.
	Thanks.
	Regards,
	Goutam
