Q.

How come Tamilians pronounce Ha as Ga when it comes in middle of word but are able to pronounce Ha as Ha in beginning of the word ?
For example, Har Har Mahadev is typically pronounced as Har Har Magadev
(No offence meant, it is just a question)

Pl note
In Tamil we don't have separate letters for Ka kha ga gha
So the confusion started
Like this even north Indians pronounce Thousand as thouzand !!

In tamil we dont have the letters like ha sha ksha ja in ancient period . since we have large vocabulary of words we are in no need of such letters. our grammer guides us to pronounce the word correctly using our letters.we are also included these letters nowadays in our language .
