I always oppose naren...but in this case I support...coz....people of tulunadu have forgotten their own root...they have adapted kannada as their main language...look at the names of villages and town of undivided tulunadu...no kannadigas can undetstand it...it is the real tulunadu...now even the names of the villages and the localities in the cities have become kannada...
UNESCO had listed tulu has one of the language in danger..We cant blame anyone...we have to blame overself for our blind following of. Yother language...

Its now or never ...dont hate kannada but stop using it because you are killing your own mother tongue...start implementing tulu not only as a language but also as a script...
