Appaneravanda Kiran Subbaiah's Sculptures


The simplest of reasons why Kodava thakké needs a script:

Our very own motherland 'Kodaghé' or our very own mother tongue 'Kodava thakké' cannot be written with its original phonetics in any of the languages borrowed for its usage. Similarly, many such words of Kodava thakké cannot be represented in its correct phonetical sense using other language scripts.

With a vision to have a script of its own, Mr. Kiran Subbaiah with years of study and research invented a totally new script for the script less Kodava language in the year 1980. With this script, the unique phonetical sounds of the Kodava Language can be easily written and represented leading further enrichment and development of the Kodava Language.
