Magar 𑀫𑫡𑫥𑂞𑀸𑀲𑀸

The Magar Akkha script is a version of the Brahmi script, that has been used since about the 11th century AD. It is still used to some extent to write Magar, a Tibeto-Burman language spoken in parts of Nepal, and northeast of India. It is taught in some schools and used in one newspaper. These days, the Devanagari script is more commonly used to write Magar.

Magar Akkha is also known as Magar Akkha Rika or Magar lipi.

Transliteration (Devanagari alphabet)

सयौं थुँगा फूलका हामी, एउटै माला नेपाली
सार्वभौम भई फैलिएका, मेची-महाकाली।

प्रकृतिका कोटि-कोटि सम्पदाको आँचल
वीरहरूका रगतले स्वतन्त्र र अटल।

ज्ञानभूमि, शान्तिभूमि, तराई, पहाड, हिमाल
अखण्ड यो प्यारो हाम्रो मातृभूमि नेपाल।

बहुल जाति, भाषा, धर्म, संस्कृति छन् विशाल
अग्रगामी राष्ट्र हाम्रो, जय जय नेपाल।।

Translation

Woven from hundreds of flowers, we are one garland that's Nepali,
Sovereignly spread across from Mechi to Mahakali.

A shawl of unending natural wealth,
From the blood of the braves, a nation free and immovable.

A land of knowledge and peace, the plains, hills and mountains tall,
Unscathed, this beloved land of ours, O motherland Nepal.

Diverse races, languages, religions, and cultures of incredible sprawl,
This progressive nation of ours, all hail Nepal!
