Kashmir, the Land of Shāradā, considered as Sarvajna Peetha (the seat of all Knowledge) has always been the land of Rishis and great scholars in various fields of knowledge.

Hieun Tsnag during his visit in the 7th century AD noted that Sanskrit is spoken fluently even by women and children of Kashmir like their native language. People used only Shāradā as the main script to write Sanskrit.

Shāradā Lipi is a writing system based on the Brahmic family of scripts and has flourished in the northern part of India, spread even in Himachal Pradesh and Punjab. Shāradā texts have been widely found in Afghanistan. The oldest text of this script is dated 3rd Century AD. 

There are thousands of manuscripts written in Shāradā Lipi, available in many libraries within and outside India; most of them are still unexplored.

This Indica Course is our humble effort to revive the script and explore the knowledge hidden in these manuscripts written centuries ago.
