List of words with difficult Hindi sounds.

 

Hello,

I am trying to work on my pronunciation and would like to compile a list of words for each of the sounds I am having trouble with so that I can practice. Would any native speakers be able to provide a few words for each of the sounds below? I appreciate the help.

ढ, द, ड, ड़, ष

धन्यवाद!
