The Saxiriya alphabet was created in 2015 by Mohammad Sagir Ahmed, from Morigaon, Assam, India, as an alternative script for Assamese, his mother tongue. It could be also used in English, Hindi-Urdu, Arabic, Japanese and many others. The word "Saxiriya" comes from "Sagir (চাগিৰ)" and "Ôxômiya (অসমীয়া)", which means "Assamese" in Assamese language.
