I've seen examples online (somewhere) of Devanagari written on forms which
have dotted lines (where you fill in your details). I'm not quite sure why
someone was writing in Devanagari on a form written in Latin script, but rather
than writing the letters on top of the dotted lines, they wrote them hanging
from the dotted lines. Curious to see.
