Brahmi and Kharoshti scripts can be counted as two of the ancient scripts in the world.
The Brahmi script was used in a vast area of the Indian subcontinent. With time, the script changed and kept transforming into newer scripts.
The Kharoshti script, on the other hand was restricted to the Gandharan region (parts of present day north-western Pakistan and north-eastern Afghanisthan) but was the prevalent script of that region for approximately six centuries.
