CIVILIZATION LED TO EXTINCTION OF TULU LANGUAGE – DR. VASANT KUMAR
Mumbai, Mar 28: Tulu Parba exhibits the culture, samskara, tradition of Tulunadu. We should pass on Tulu to the next generation by not speaking any other language except Tulu at home. Tulu language is associated with agriculture. Slowly we progressed to see horticulture in place of agriculture, then civilization and now because of civilization we can see Tulu nowhere. We have lost our existence because of WTO. This can be saved by literature. Tulu language lacks royal support-said senior writer Dr Vasant Kumar Perla.
