Although I don't know Sanskrit, I've seen enough to say that this looks like Devanagari script. One of the characters looks like it might be a variant of Om. I'll ask around to see if anyone I know can translate it.

It looks like it could be , which looks similar to Om, but is pronounce with an ah sound (although, some people spell Om as Aum). I had to look this up.

There are many languages that employ Devanagari, and the tablet might include archaic words or obsolete characters. So translation could be a bit difficult. Knowing where exactly in India it was could be useful information.

If something can be destroyed by the truth, it might be worth destroying.
