Gurmukhi Handwritten - Dukandar - Real people don't write their shopping list in Times New Roman or use a word processor, they use their own handwriting.
In the same way that English handwritten 'z's and 's's don't look like printed ones, GHW Dukandar is a handwritten font that takes the essence of the writing and uses only that.
In short, this is the writing form that real people who write Gurmukhi all of the time for their personal notes to their shopping lists would use.
GHW Dukandar is also available as a Marker pen version in two weights.
This gives the impression of a 'chisel point' marker pen held at 45 degrees and scales well to any size. The image on the right (click on it for a full-sized version to open up in a new window) takes the GHW Dukandar Marker Bold font and is processed to make it look as though ਅੰਗ੍ਰੇਜ਼ੀ has been written on a piece of balsa wood with a rather wet, green marker pen, showing what you can do with these fonts if you want to use them to create special images as well as masses of body text.
In addition to the Bold Marker font, there is also a Bold Marker Tips font which gives just the tips (ie, where the pen didn't move at the begining and end and sometimes part way through forming any of the characters). If, on an image editor, you copy the text, keeping the positon the same, you an change the font to the tips version which you can make a darker colour. Some image editors might give you different line spacings but just about all of the work is done for you with this font;
