Dear Mushtaq,
Happy New Year to you too!! And as I cannot resist a challenge, here is the inscription:

Right Blade:
Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem
(In the Name of God, the Most Merciful, the Most Compassionate)
Left Blade:
The mirror image of the Right Blade
(Although that one had me stumped for a minute, and I had to get my magnifying glass! But, then I got the idea of clicking on the picture to enlarge it!)

As for the other language... I'm lost.

Will you tell us?

Dear Mushtaq,
No! On second thought, don't tell us what it says yet! I just "happened upon" a certain book that contains the Sanskrit Alphabet that was sitting on one of my bookshelves.... Amazing what you might find when you look for it... I want to try to figure it out!

Dear Mushtaq,
Salaam. Here is my best effort at the transliteration of the Sanskrit inscription:

Ksa I R Y N G

M A G

As for the meaning, that will have to be another day's work for me, I'm afraid! Could it be as simple as "Happy New Year"? Somehow I don't think so. It would be nice to know, though... (If you are inclined to tell us, that is....) Or, you could just leave us in suspense for the rest of the year!

Cool image Mushtaq. I'm also curious what the Sanskrit says.
