Moreover, I'm not talented at all at designing alphabets (and at drawing in general). The most devanagari-like letter of sabikeri is "s" according to me, which recalls the retroflex [t`] (dotted |t| in transliteration). But I'm not sure whether sabikeri |tl| recalls devanagari |th| ??? Anyway, it's fine because I love devanagari :))). -- "Well be a lot longer discovering the future if we dont recover the past" John Anderson
