Kannada is amongst the oldest southern Indian languages. And has a population of around 60 million people speaking this language. Kannada literature has received Jnanpith Award for a record 8 times just second to Hindi, this itself is an evidence of the richness of the content available in this language.
The current and upcoming generation are feeling difficult & mere impossible to learn from rich and diverse literature content of Kannada as the Kannada content available are in scanned copies of the printed books. This won't enable us to search, mark and refer the contents discretely.
In this digital age, if no action is taken to alter this situation, we can be certain that, in the future, the use of Kannada language will gradually fade and vanish.
Time has come to make the rich and diverse literature content of Kannada truely digitize it and make it more accessible to the current and future generations
As a first step towards this, we need to urge, one of the world most famous and widely used digital reading platform Amazon Kindle to provide support for Kannada ASAP.
So I request all Kannadigas to pledge their support for this cause. Thank you.
