Great basic Hindi dictionary,
This review is from: Teach Yourself Hindi Dictionary (TYD) (Paperback)
It's a great dictionary for Hindi beginners. It has devanagari script and pronunciation explained in the very first pages of the book. It explains how to join Hindi letters and also gives information on basic Hindi grammar. Hindi numbers from 1-100 are also written down in the beginning of the book (these are actually slightly complicated because they sound rather like different words and it is better to learn them by heart). There are Hindi language learning resources listed in the book as well. The dictionary itself is divided into two parts: Hindi to English (In devanagari as well as roman scripts) and English to Hindi part. It has the very basic words and phrases but is not quite useful for things like newspaper translations. However words in this dictionary is the first step into a wider Hindi knowledge. I highly recommend it.
