The Nagari script is essentially an early form of the Devanagari script, which is still used in modern Indian. It appeared around the 8th century CE as an eastern variant of the Gupta script (whereas Sarada was the western variety). In turn it branched off into several scripts (in addition to Devanagari), such as Nandinagari, Bengali, and Tibetan, as well as influenced the Sarada-derived Gurmukhi script.
