Even now the scripts which are well known like Gurumukhi, Takri are derived from Shāradā script.
It is believed that there is a good haul of Sharada manuscripts in several places in the country like Nalanda, Hoshiarpur, Madurai, Chennai and Mysore, and in Nepal. There are thousands of manuscripts in various Libraries in India written in Shāradā. The Lipi was the mother Lipi in native Kashmir.
