    src: local('Aakar'),
         url('https://github.com/kartikm/fonts-aakar/releases/download/0.2/Aakar-Medium.eot?#iefix') format('embedded-opentype'),
         url('https://github.com/kartikm/fonts-aakar/releases/download/0.2/Aakar-Medium.woff') format('woff'),
         url('https://github.com/kartikm/fonts-aakar/releases/download/0.2/aakar-medium.ttf') format('truetype');
    font-weight: normal;
    font-style: normal;
}
