Actually, the only times it's been really easy for me to learn a script are when I kind of know it already. You know, like learning how to read Urdu when you already know how to read Arabic and Persian.
Yeah that's true or if the scripts are extremely similar, like going from Devanagari to Gurmukhi is really easy.
Gurmukhi was actually kind of hard for me. Like I'd see ਕ and keep confusing it with Devanagari र. Gurmukhi and Oriya script were the last two Indian scripts I learned, after the Tamil, Kannada, Telugu, Gujarati, and Bengali scripts (and of course Devanagari, Urdu script, and Malayalam script).
EDIT: Though I should add that that's not to say Gurmukhi was harder than the ones I learned before it! I just took a long time to get around to learning it.
Haha when I was doing Punjabi I would write something in Gurmukhi and then accidentally switch to Devanagari so it would look like :
