Origin of Myanmar language

February 28, 2012

Today I am shocked to read the words on my patient’s T shirt. He is a Malaysian Chinese and the words were the Nepali alphabetical charts. If we removed the lines above, it is similar to Myanmar alphabets, same serial order and the sounds (given in English) are also same. ka kha gha cga sa la wa tha ha …etc

Since I arrived here, 26 yrs ago, I noticed that there is a dozen of Tamil Alphabets similar to Myanmar. When I learnt that their basic language starts with Ah Ar Ei Eii Oo Ooo …etc exactly same as Myanmar, I was shocked. All come from India‘s BRAHMI Script.
