Modi Unicode Script

Modi is a Brahmi-based script used mainly for writing Marathi, an Indo-Aryan language spoken in western and central India, predominantly in the state of Maharashtra. Modi was also used for writing various other regional languages such as Hindi, Gujarati, Kannada, Konkani, Persian, Tamil, and Telugu. According to an old legend, the Modi script was brought to India from Sri Lanka by Hemādrī Panḍ it, known also as Hemād ̣ pant, who was the chief minister of Rāmacandra (r. 1271–1309), the last king of the Yadava dynasty. Another tradition credits the creation of the script to Bāḷājī Avajī, the secretary of state to the Maratha king Shivaji Raje Bhonsle (r. 1642–1680), also known as Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. While the veracity of such accounts is difficult to ascertain, it is clear that Modi derives from the Nagari family of scripts and is a modification of the Nagari model intended for continuous writing.
