The name comes from the Sanskrit words Samrup (सामरुप) (سامروپ), meaning "congruence" or similar, and Rachna (रचना) (رچنا) meaning "creative work or design". The calligraphy is an attempt to use the two altogether different Devanagari and Nastaʿlīq script scripts, used by the same language Hindi -Urdu, in unison in such a manner that a picture of the word which is written is formed.
For example, the Hindi-Urdu word surahi (meaning "ewer" or "pitcher" in English) is written in Samrup Rachna calligraphy in Devanagri and Nastaʿlīq scripts of Hindi-Urdu in a way that a picture of a ewer is formed.
In linguistics, languagea which are written in two different scripts are called Synchronic digraphia. Hindi-Urdu is one such language. Samrup Rachna is also advocated by its inventor to help readers of Nastaʿlīq (Urdu) script to understand and learn the Devanagari (Hindi) script of the same language. This art is aimed at helping to dispel the existing religious association with the two scripts in the region of South Asia. References may be found on Wikipedia.
Language has no religion its speaker may have one. Hindi-Urdu is the biggest common denominator between India and Pakistan . . . This art will help in promotion of peace tolerance understanding and collaboration between the people of these two countries and will help in reducing intolerance . . ..
