On a mission to liberate Public Domain Kannada books

What a liberation it would be to be able to say which book is really out in public domain for a language! This could unlock a magic wand to unleash & liberate knowledge for the larger public. We are on such a #digitization #mission dedicated to #Kannada. Let us know the sources from which we can collect & verify our authors names, date of birth, date of death, their works information to make it happen. #sanchaya Drop an email to pustaka at sanchaya.net

Unable to read Kannada on Kindle – Ask for Language Support, sign the petition

I’m unable to read Kannada books on Kindle. In Kindle Android app, I see the index rendering properly in Kannada but the actual content looks broken. (see the image). This is not something big for a multinational such as Amazon to fix. Urge them to fix these for all devices. Not only Amazon but other device manufacturers should work on it too. Let’s ask our government to make it a mandate. Sign the petition here.

Update: The petition is only for Kannada Support but also for all other Indic Languages on Electronic devices.
