Modi derives its name from the Marathi word modane or bend where the writers are allowed for continuous writing by bending the letters. It also allows scribes to keep pace while noting down the edicts, in a way a great script that may have great use for a lot of professionals.
According to various historians Modi lipi was invented as a cursive i.e. shorthand or speed writing to note down the royal edicts. This is also true that over the centuries, it has undergone changes; for instance, it has various phases e.g. Bahamani in 16th century, Shivkalin in 17th century and Peshwekalin in 18th century and finally Anglakalin in the 19th -20th century.
As the history goes it was Sir Charles Wilkins, an English typographer and Orientalist who developed Modi metal types, which were used to a limited extent to publish books. Being the founding member of the Asiatic Society he worked a lot on India’s old literature, one of them was the first translation of Bhagavad Gita into English. Interestingly enough Modi script was still in use until around 1950 as it was becoming difficult for organizations to print the script and in consequence to that Marathi has since been written in Devanagari script.
