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.

#bcb10 – Localization Efforts for Sharing Knowledge

Did you ever dream of landing in an alien land or being treated as one in your own land? I had little such thoughts way back in time and that had made me start writing about my learning’s about technology, life etc in . Today I got a chance to share my work with enthusiasts at Barcamp Bangalore 10.

Thanks barcamp for the opportunity.
