Pronunciation guide in Hindi

I just want to give it a try and start this chart with my - admittedly - poor knowledge of the language Hindi. I'm having available here a narrow vocabulary and some knowledge of Hindi phonology.
First, we'd have to decide which contrasts should match the Lojban voiced/unvoiced consonant pairs, since most Hindi consonants can be distinguished according voiced/unvoiced, aspirated/unaspirated, retroflex/'normal', which e.g. for the dental stops or labial plosives means:
'd - dh - d(retro) - dh(retro) - t - th - t(retro) - th(retro)'
'b - bh - b(retro) - bh(retro) - p - ph - p(retro) - ph(retro)'
The vowels are:
'a, i, u, e, o' - each coming in pairs: short-open (a, i, u) or moreorless long-moreorless closed (e, o). There are still two diphtongs 'ae-e' and 'o-o' with pretty different articulation according different local pronunciation. So what?
