Indogana was invented by Adnaan Mahmood, who thought that the
Japanese should have adopted an abugida rather than a syllabary,
which is complex. When Kūkai (空海),
a famous Buddhist monk, brought the Siddham alphabet to Japan
for writing Sanskrit sutras and mantras, the Japanese should
have adopted it and and adapted it to the Japanese Language.
The current Kanji, Hiragana and Katakana writing systems is
complex, and Indogana is simple but syllabic (like the Japanese Language)
and alphabetic. Every Japanese Phoneme is represented by Indogana.
Indogana could be used as a bridge between India and Japan.
- Type of writing system: abugida
- Direction of writing: left to right in horizontal lines
- Used to write Japanese and also can be used to write Ainu
- Represents all of Japanese's phonemes and has letters for foreign sounds
