Among the Indian scripts the Sarada script has a pride of place. Though an alphabet of Kashmir par excellence it remained for several centuries a popular script of an extensive area of north-western India including Afghanistan, Gandhara or north-western Pakistan, the Darad territories of Gilgit, Chilas and Chitral, Ladakh, Jammu, Himachal Pradesh and Delhi. The epigraphic and literary records written in the Sarada script that have surfaced in these regions have thrown welcome light on many facets of the history and culture of the area of their provenance. Nearly the entire extant manuscripts of Sanskrit works including those on science, mathematics and erotics besides some old Kashmiri texts are written in this script.The Sarada alphabet was replaced in the thirteenth century by its descendant, Devase?a, which in turn gave rise to the modern alphabet of ?akari. The epigraphic, literary and other valuable documents of Himachal Pradesh available are mostly written in Devase?a and ?akari. But it is sad that the number of scholars having a sound knowledge of the ?arada and ?akari scripts is extremely small. There is every apprehension of the complete loss of these two scripts unless serious measures are taken to disseminate the knowledge under the guidance of the epigraphy stalwart to our younger generation of scholars.Printed Pages:
