The Indian connection

At my event last week, I talked to people about the Philippines connection with India. After talking about shared words like Guro, Diwata and topics like the Visayas, it made sense to them but wondered why we don’t acknowledge or know about it. Is it our own discrimination or just a lack of education? Perhaps both?

This morning, an article came out on the Bangalore Mirror about the work of Graphologist Rajul Shah. She showcased some of the long forgotten Indian scripts, from which several South Asian languages have originated – including Baybayin.

Not much was said in the article about Baybayin but it was good to see the connection made from the Indian side.
