Kannada keyboard for cyberspace
It is widely feared that computerisation of government activity without
creating database in Kannada will drive away Kannada as the language of
administration. C V SRINATH SASTRY gives an account of the efforts being
made by the Kannada Ganaka Parishat to fill up this lacuna and render the
Kannada language as a modern tool.
