The use of these fonts can be seen at many places. On many book covers, store or showroom name, Sanskrit or Hindi related English books.
As we can see the name of showroom is written using samarkan font. The speciality of this font is that it has the same common cape line which connects the all consonants in Hindi fonts. This line maintain the beauty of whole word written with the use of this font as in Hindi fonts.
