It puzzles me that so many people spell and call Sanskrit Krsna, Krishna! My father, who was a Rajput, pronounced his name as Krsna which sounded like Keessna, but which was anglicized as Kishna by those in authority in British Guiana!

Of course, you are puzzled. Devanji alphabet will tell you how to pronounce the Word.  According to him, there is no "h" in Hindi"  Let me give you an example.

if you want to pronounce 'kha', curl your tongue and hold it at the top of your palate and say 'ka'.
