Different Writing Materials

Though the credit of the art of writing goes to China primarily, yet we have many sources to know its development in different cultural streams. So far our Nation is concerned, the names of stones, bricks, palm-leaves, birch-bark, wood, metals and finally the paper can be enumerated as sources for writing. Among these the Institution preserves the specimen example of palm, birch-bark, wood, metal, cloth and paper which can be illustrated as

Palm-leave
Bhagavat 10th Skandh
