The Kacheritopu script was invented by Johan Sommansson. It's not intended for any language in particular, and is loosely based on the Devanagari alphabet. There is a somewhat logical connection between the shapes of the letters and their pronunciation.
When two consonants appear together, ligatures are used. The ligatures are formed by stacking two consonant symbols. The bottom consonant is the first in the ligature, the upper the second. The diacritics of the first consonant are placed below, the diacritics of the second consonant are placed above.
If a "sa" or "na" consonant is turned backwards in a ligature, a third consonant "ra" is added, creating syllables like 'stra' or 'ndra'. Otherwise, if three consonant sounds follow each other a "no vowel" sign is added after a ligature.
All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.
