So this is way outside my area of expertise, so that's why I'm posting this here for other people to comment on. The Voynich Manuscript has never been interpreted, we don't even know what it's about or what language it's in. But I found someone who claims to have it figured out. What do you think?

My name is Sukhwant Singh and I have extensively researched in depth on MS-408 better known as the Voynichmanuscript.
I hope, my explanation will lead to resolving the Voynich manuscript once and for all.

The origins of the VM ( Voynich Manuscript ) lies in 6000 miles east from its current location. The place is in North Eastern Sindh region which is a part of Pakistan right now. The explanation in the VM is copied from an even older original book written in "Brahmi" language about ( 300-400 B.C ). The knowledge and editions of the books were passed through generations of merchants( Known as Mahajan"s with Vedic knowledge ) in ancient Indus valley civilization which also gave the name "Sindhustan", the Sindh region in particular which was divided into India and Pakistan in 1947.
The book is divided into 4 parts as mentioned by the author( details below ) written in early 15th century as that"s the time period when Khojki was more prominent.
The book was taken by the "Holy" man from town to town and based on the knowledge he had( He was the go to guy and first person to approach in case of issues, either injury or some depression, bad dreams, marriage and business, Hex etc. ) , and the facts he collected from the inhabitants/customer. This man would then recommend to-do things. The book also deals with what kind of women she is based on the type of hair she has, what type of clothes she wears, what to expect from the second wife of the husband etc. What to do if someone has Hex on you and how to figure it out and recommendations for getting rid of the Hex.
The book is not written for others to read and is usually passed within the family from Father to Son or someone more capable whom the Mahajan has taught and guided himself.
Some background"..
When the Arab conquered the Sindh region in about early 700 ADs and moved more towards the east they started eliminating learned Sindhi scholars and Holy men, who enjoyed rich merchant heritage and were established in the region. With passage of time, "Urdu" language was forced in the region and subsequently became an official language and in current times known as Sindhi language (Descendent language of Landa script) which is currently written in Urdu script.
In early 15th century Khojki language was used by many to write prayer hyms and guidance songs. The extended use of this script and the underlining Landa script also indicate that the author didn"t revise his book into the periods urdu language but made it"s knowledge more hidden by superimposing Khwaja Khojki Vowel marks on top of Brahmi languages ( K, Ki, Ku, Kuu, Kay, Kaay, Ku, Kho, KHU, KHUU Gutturals ( Guttural).
Brahmi language is considered as the main language based on which current northern India languages are based on. It itself is part of Indo-European set of language whose base is Sanskrit in general. This timeline spans 1000"s of years from the period of Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro.
This VM manuscript is a very important book and will be another key to bind "Roma" people in Europe with their Sindh region ancestry. Most likely this book was taken along with the movement of Sindh"s migrant population 100"s of years ago( as slaves by Arab rulers ) and was preserved in good condition because the knowledge it would provide and likely the person owning it wanted to one day use it to establish the same respect the merchants of the Sindh region held. "Roma" migration from Sindh region resulted in scores of people being moved as slaves into Turkey and then current Europe.
There has been plenty of scientific tests conducted on the origins of Roma people. The book landed from a Roma person into the hands of Italian rulers as the poor Roma people faced many atrocities in Europe and many times were eliminated by the countries in which they tried to make their settlements.
Studies were conducted in Sindh as latest as in 2010 to get the local knowhow about the herbs, roots etc. and their usage. This study was conducted to preserve whatever knowledge is left in the Nara desert region of Sindh.
The main issue to decipher the VM had to do with the place where it ended first and then later in America. Considering the "Nasal" phonetic words particular to "Landa" language (Ancestor language of Khudabadi, Mahajani, Gurmukhi, Khojki, Sindhi languages) are not spoken in Europe and for that matter in America.
English does not have these sounds at all. So for that matter it becomes next to impossible to decipher it and all the false theories it has generated, including its origins.
In America, it being predominantly English speaking world it adds to the problem where from ages researchers started emphasizing that the VM is some sort of minuscule Roman language or some false code system( It is not ).
That mis-categorization has hindered the deciphering of the language for such a long time.
I am going to decipher few paragraphs to best of my ability and because I don"t have Sindhi as my mother tongue, it won"t be fair for me to translate the whole book( I would need help from a Sindhi native speaker, currently I am in process of translating in parts as much as I can ).
I have deciphered the alphabet to what I think it is( As I originally belong to Punjab region and I am aware of the cursive writings from the region as well as phonetics ).
The alphabet contains 4 different character set from languages spoken in same way but written in different form. There was no consistency of a set language in the region.
The merchants/judicial holy Sindhu men started using 3,4 languages mix in order to hide the contents( depending on the knowledge of the person and area he traveled ). This was done to protect business know-how and maintain superiority at that time. The languages used by the merchants of North western Multan and Sindh were "Multani" and "Landa/Khudabadi/Mahajani" apart from other regional dialects and written words. It was what the Sindhu Mahajan"s( Merchants ) used to do. This kind of book and knowledge was in demand as people relied on auspicious moon cycles and it was part of daily life and it is still in many parts of the world.
Day and night are divided into 15 "Mahurats" or auspicious times, Year is divided in 12 months based on astrological signs ( Not January February etc.. ) The day and night each were divided into 8 parts each based on Sanskrit astrology ( pages 67v and 69v clearly depicts the division of 8 parts segments around the sun and moon )

The times, days, years were not depicted as in Roman date forms, nor did they had the same timeline of 24 hours. This book is thus written with calculating moon cycles and the positions of 9 planets and the Vedic astrological knowledge is gathered from the original Brahmi book ( 300-400 BC or even earlier ).
Some details of which are recorded in India"s archaeological preservations.
The characters are also intermingled from dialects in the region but they sound and mean the same example
CH, TA, JJH, K, KH are written in mixed scripts, which makes it difficult.
The Brahmi scipts usage from which the MS 408 book was copied adds to more complexity, but the words used are common short 2-3 characters found in recent Devanagari language. This book probably had 1-2 readers( at that time, Mahajan himself and probably his son or someone else he took along on his business in various towns There were other people who had similar books but probably not as detailed as this one. Holy men were killed by Arab rulers and their books were burned so that Arab rule could be established in force and almost everyone follow one language, which was Urdu ( like Persian script ). This book most likely was hidden by the author and usually people like him belonged to higher castes who had good people connections as they were respected for their knowledge and guidance. The so called lower caste people were made slave labor and soldiers to fight in wars. It is likely that this book"s author was killed and as this book was hidden was later picked by someone else and taken along as an important document to be used later. The problem occurred to decipher it at that time too, so the Roma person kept for generations hidden in the belongings until it ended in front of some Italian king"s subject.

The languages used in MS 408 are ( Yes, there are multiple languages, but their pronunciations are almost same ).
Landa, Khojki and Brahmi are used throughout the book.
1. Landa ( Which later became Sindhi, Khudabadi, Khojki )
2. Brahmi ( 300- 400 B.C ) Which gives a reason to believe that MS-408 is copied from an original book
3. Multani
4. Mahajani
5. Khojki
6. Gurmukhi which is also a descendant of Landa script ( Words which cuts at the end and sounds individual standing separately ). Gurmukhi usage is very minimal, which tells that the book was written prior to the era in which the Gurmukhi was main stream in Punjab region around 1430 AD.

The last page 116V is written by someone else other than the original writer as it contains characters from Sarada and JaunSari scripts from mountainous region of Southwestern Kashmir as those few lines are similar to later on what became Kashmiri Dialect and scripted language.

First paragraph from 1r goes like this.

"Many 100's of years desire tradition and as requested by the cultivator from his pouring knowledge in under increasing guidance
To accomplish it this promise of the interrogation of field subjects and about those manner for eating about their power learning from oneself condition about
under ongoing sufferings about stuck in those conditions which has already affected them learning from them in self-help either called for taking care during taking care or
When called by the messenger one about trees provided information in parts and about desire"."

That part is most definitely bs. Only 5 planets were known at those times (excluding Earth).

Also, the book was carbon dated to around 1450CE, meaning that "the Vedic astrological knowledge is gathered from the original Brahmi book ( 300-400 BC or even earlier )" would have been useless and most likely unknown. Anyone who know anything about astronomy knows that astrology is a huge pile of crap, it is not science, nor do astrologers have any sort of 'knowledge' which would allow them to calculate anything. The 'astrological' knowledge shows this, as Hindu astrology does not mention any more than 5 planets, as I mentioned above. Also, Western Astrology is basically the same, 12 star-signs, as they are both a product of the same ancient astrology.

As for his theory, it is seen as plausible that the manuscript came from some place in Asia, though somehow unlikely being modern day Pakistan.

It is to note that the text and illustrations are characteristically European.

Furthermore, as far as I understood, he assumes that Romani people, who I have no doubt came from India, brought the book to Europe from India. However, to my knowledge, the Romani people left India well before the 15th century, as such this assumption makes little sense and does not explain why the book is written in a European style, if it apparently originates from India.

His assumptions about 'Westerners' being unable to solve the language basically because 'they are not Indian'. What a load of nonsense. There are plenty of Western Scholars well versed in languages, Asian ones being a part of them, as well as Indian Scholars, who would most definitely be able to solve this if it was true. However, this is not the case.

Looking at his Youtube channel, he recently (5 months ago) stated that the book had some sort of connection to Uzbekistan, once again going against everyone else, including credible scholars and not some random person who makes strange theories on their Youtube channel..

Finally, it seems like no one has cared about what he is saying. If there was any factual evidence that any of the things he is saying are true and is not just making up links, as it seems, it would have been followed up by someone.

But, this seemingly was not the case. Honestly, this guy ( has more views and claims that 'it is an engineers book, but not of this earth, which shows windows for space travel'.

This reminds me of a DDO user who 'sadly' closed his account. This is his website, where he claims he is a prophet and god sent.

Similar? Yeah, crazy (not saying he is, but the possibility exists) people will make up any theory, grasp evidence out of thin air and in the end come up with nothing.

His theory may hold possible truth, though I somehow doubt it..
