Falling Educational Standards (4)

This is an update on the posts of 21 May 2014, 24 August 2015 and 13 January 2016 about numbers fixed to the fencing round a local school to help teach the children how to count. I noticed recently that there has been a new development since my last observation, as can be seen in the photograph below.
The number '1' and '3' are still there, but have been joined by what appear to me to be three shapes. They could just as easily be the numbers '1', '2', and '3' in some obscure language of the Indian subcontinent. According to Wikipedia, the Census of India 2001 found that India had 122 major languages and 1599 other languages.
