  1. Awesome Kiran ! I'm from Tulunad. To be precise from Kundapur. Historically we are tuluvas but these days we are attending to lean for Kannada/Karnataka either because of the dominant language of state. The language spoken in kundapur is different. It semantically ,tonally tend more to tulu and grammatically to Kannada. I always wanted to learn our language that binds our culture, Thanks for this wonderful blog. Cheers for love of Tulu
