English to Hindi
As you may all be aware, there is an English sentence which covers all the keys of English keyboard:
The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy little dog.
This serves as a very useful text for practising the English typewriting because it contains all the characters and one may become aware of the location of each and every key after typing this small sentence repeatedly.
I'd appreciate if someone could suggest a Hindi sentence encompassing the whole Hindi alphabet. The normal Hindi keyboard and Unicode Hindi keyboard are entirely different and it poses some sort of a problem when switching between the two. So, I think one may refresh one's memory after typing such a sentence.

Here is a sentence that I wrote just now, and I think it includes all the letters of the Hindi alphabet:
गङ्गा के किनारे अमरूद और आम के पेड़ों की छाए में बैठे ऊंट के पास खड़े ऐरावत नामक चञ्चल हाथी ने पंकज का फूल उठाकर होदे में रखे गणेश की मूर्ति के शीर्ष पर डाला और चिंघाड़ उठा, और ईख का गट्ठर सूंड़ से उठाकर मुंह में डालकर इत्मीनान से चबाने लगा, जिसे देखकर झांझर, ढोल मजीरे जोर से बजने लगे, पटाखों के धमाके हुए और भक्त गणों ने ओं नमः शिवाय की गुहार से सारे क्षेत्र को गुंजा दिया और थाली में सिक्के डाल दिए।
It is slightly long and unweildy and may be ungrammatical. Some redundancy in the letters could be there, and it could badly do with some pruning. It could be a nice starting point for you.
