Hindi pronunciation is similar to Sanskrit, and uses the same
system of nasalization as in Bengali (using ~ to denote syllables where
the vowel is partly pronounced through the nose).
The ai in Hindi is pronounced like the a in cat.
The au is sometimes pronounced like Sanskrit au but usually
like au in caught.
