The Tocharians (Sanskrit तुषार) lived in present-day western China, but were NOT Chinese. They were Indo-European.

The Tocharian script is descended from the ancient Brahmi script. Kannada, Telugu, Oriya, Burmese, Thai, etc. are also Brahmi-descended.

Comparison of ancient Tocharian script with modern Kannada & Telugu scripts. Several people pointed this out.
