A Stone With Inscription In Tulu Script Found: Check Out

January 21: A stone with inscription in Tulu language was discovered in a paddy field near Padubidri recently. The present-day paddy field which is called Gundladi village under Nadvalgrama of Padubidri was once the bed of partly lost River Kaamini, which was navigable and use to be a hub of trade transport – import and exports.
Prof S A Krishnaiah, Founder Director of Prachya Sanchaya Samshodhan Kendra (Oriental Archives Research Centre) in Udupi, and Archaeologist Subhas Nayak Bantakal have started the process of lifting the inscriptions from the stone on to a piece of paper for a clearer read the Tulu script inscription found in Padubidri.  The rough granite stone inscription (width  29 inches, height 51 inches and thickness 4 inches) had nine rows. However, it appeared to be damaged as villagers had used the stone inscription to sharpen their sickle and axe. Only four or six letters had been identified.
Dr Radhakrishna Bellur (Kasargod), a scholar in ancient Tulu script, said the crux of content and period of inscription was difficult to study.
The locals described the stone inscription as ‘Pandi Kallu’.
