Indogana (इन्दोगन)

Indogana was invented by Adnaan Mahmood, who thought that the Japanese should have adopted an abugida rather than a syllabary, which is complex. When Kūkai (空海), a famous Buddhist monk, brought the Siddham alphabet to Japan for writing Sanskrit sutras and mantras, the Japanese should have adopted it and and adapted it to the Japanese Language. The current Kanji, Hiragana and Katakana writing systems is complex, and Indogana is simple but syllabic (like the Japanese Language) and alphabetic. Every Japanese Phoneme is represented by Indogana. Indogana could be used as a bridge between India and Japan.
