the horror inflicted
was obviously scripted
we’re not here again
where the riots begin

crept out of the hole
only to climb the knoll

wound up like a spring
we’ll undo everything
round and round
the beginning can’t be found

Deccan Lipi

Deccan Lipi is a simplified and modernised script based on the Grantha Lipi script devised by Punya Pranava Pasumarty. It is designed for writing Sanskrit and all South Indian languages, although it can be used for most other Indian languages as well.

This script is nicely designed and presented, but it is also rather boring as just another SEA (South-East Asian) abugida. The reduction of ligatures is probably the most interesting and notable feature, as many scripts in the Subcontinent do have many redundant ligatures.

If I were a betting man, though, I’d say this script won’t get much attention from its intended audience.


The Hoelāı script was invented by Miles Foster in 2019 to write Toaq, a language he also constructed. It was created partially to give an identity to the language. The script draws inspiration from the Thai, Tibetan and Hebrew’s scripts. The image on the right is a calligraphy version of the script’s name.

This is a very unique script and I like it’s overall feel. I think the incorporation of Hebrew inspiration is a bit wonky, not fully fleshed-out, but it’s still well done and lends to he uniqueness. I’d like to see more calligraphic samples as I think that form is where this script’s strengths lie.
