So I have been conducting a survey for my uni project and I asked people if they knew how to write in the Devanagari script (Hindi, Marathi, Sanskrit, Dogri, Gujarati, Sindhi etc.) Also, if they knew some of the terms that describe the parts of the letter in the script. Turns out all 25 of them knew about chandrābindū (चंद्रबिंदु) while mostly all other terms in both Devanagari and Latin script were unknown to them. chandrābindū to the moon!

@chaitanya "chandrabindu to the moon" - Nice one.
To whoever who doesn't get why - "Chandrabindu" is comprised of 2 words - "Chandra" and "bindu", where "Chandra" literally means "the moon".
