    Hi Jyothis,

    I was under the impression that Tamil script, Malayalam Script, Sinhala scripts were influenced by the Grantha scripts.

    Thank you

    I've attached The picture along. You can see this Sree/Shree (ശ്രീ) in Anjaly Old Lipi font.

    Just as an observation, the Title on pic1 looks similar to Malayalam 'Shri' in old lipi. I shall try to see if I can find it somewhere/draw it for you guys to see.

    Hi Bala,

    That's an interesting glyph at the top of pic1.JPG. Maybe it is
    only a variant of the form found at the top of pic2.JPG?

    The reason I ask is that, in the text of pic1.JPG, all of the first
    shrii letters are the same as the glyph at the top of pic2.JPG.

    And both pic1 and pic2 have some text which looks similar.
    The word "ஸ்ரீகண்டன்" appears in the second line of text
    of pic1 and in the fifth line (third definition) of pic2.

    Can you help us with a translation of the descriptions
    given for these two forms of shree?

    Best regards,

    James Kass
