Jenticha   जेँःतिच ब्रेःसे / jẽtica brese

The Jenticha script was developed by Krishna Bahadur Jenticha (1926-1991) in the 1942 to write Sunwar, a Kiranti language spoken mailny in eastern Nepal, and also in Sikkim in the northeast of India. It is used mainly in Sikkim, where it officially recognised, though Devanagari is more commonly used in Nepal. Jenticha was originally a phonemic alphabet, but later became a syllabic alphabet. It is not related to any other writing system, but has some similarities to the Limbu and Lepcha scripts.

Jenticha has been used to produce books for use in primary schools, for poetry, histories, a newspaper, a grammar, government records, academic works, and other material.
