[a] The Semitic origin of the Brahmic scripts is not universally agreed upon.
The Nāgarī script appeared in ancient India around the 8th century CE as an eastern variant of the Gupta script (whereas Śāradā was the western variety). In turn it branched off into several scripts, such as Devanagari and Nandinagari, and also influenced the development of the Śāradā-derived Gurmukhī script.
