Tulu Script, Kannada to Tulu, Hindi to Tulu

Tulu, a beautiful language spoken in South India. Belonging to Dravidian family of language it is spoken by 2.5 Million people. It is believed to be one of the oldest language in The Dravidian family, but the least spoken of the 5 major language in its category (Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam and Tulu).

It was believed that Tulu had no script of its own, for writing people used malayalam script and now Kannada script. But now it is known that it is actually other way round. Much of the Malayalam script was derived from Tulu, though I still need more proof to support it.

Beautiful Places, Beautiful Faces, Blessed with the Arabian Sea in the west. Tulunadu is famous for its food, Education (Top Universities like NIT Surathkal and Manipal University are situated here) and Temples. As India is racing towards modernization and so is Tulunadu, the Hindu way of life is still very well preserved and followed here with all other major religions in the region.

After doing little research I found Tulu script on internet. Here I am going to publish how to transliterate Roman to Tulu, Kannada to Tulu and Devanagari(Hindi) to Tulu.
