Description
Foreword

On the 15th of October 1964 the Deccan College celebrates the centenary of its main Building, and curiously enough this period coincides with the Silver Jubilee of the Postgraduate and Research Institute which, as successor to the Deccan College, started functioning from 17th August 1939 when members of the teaching faculty reported for duty. When I suggested to members of our faculty the novel idea that the centenary should be celebrated by the publication of a hundred monographs representing the research carried on under the auspices of the Deccan College in its several departments they readily accepted the suggestion. These contributions are from present and past faculty members and research scholars of the Deccan College, giving a cross-section of the manifold research that it has sponsored during the past twenty-five years. From small beginnings in 1939 the Deccan College has now grown into a well developed and developed Research Institute and become a national centre in so far as Linguistics, Archaeology and Ancient Indian History, and Anthropology and Sociology are concerned. Its international status is attested by the location of the Indian Institute of German Studies (jointly sponsored by Deccan College and the Goethe Institute of Munich), the American Institute of Indian Studies and a Branch of the Ecole Francaise d’Extreme-Orient in the campus of the Deccan College. The century of monographs not only symbolises the centenary of the original building and the silver jubilee of the Research Institute, but also the new spirit of critical enquiry and the promise of more to come.

 

Preface

Tulu is a Dravidian language spoken in southern India by nearly a million individuals inhabiting the coastal part of Mysore (South Kanara) and also the northern tip of Kerala (Kasaragod Taluk). It is also known as a subsidiary language to more than two thousand individuals of this area, according to the 1961 census. Though no extensive literature has been cultivated in Tulu, its speakers are are well-informed and civilized. Tulu holds a prominent position in the study of Comparative Dravidian for a number of reasons.

The language has split itself into a number of social as well as geographical dialects, sharply distinguished from one another, some of which have almost lost their mutual intelligibility. The present study is based on one of them only, namely the upper class dialect (Brahmins’) of the north (Udupi). The material comes mainly from Mr. M. A. Bhatta, Siromani, of Elluru. Additional material was obtained from Messrs. A. S. Achar, M. A. and P. S. Tantri, M.A. only the grammatical analysis is presented here, while an etymological dictionary is under preparation.

I wish to express here, my sincere gratitude to Dr. A. M. Ghatage, my research guide, to my informants, especially to Sri M.A. Bhatta and to Doctors S. M. Katre, H.S. Biligiri and N.G. Kalelkar for their help and encouragement.

नमास्कार परदेस में रहने वाले भारतीयों को अपनी सभ्यता व संकृति से जुड़े रहने का माध्यम प्रदान करने हेतु, मैं आपका अभिनंदन करती हूँ| धन्यवाद
Ankita, USA
Namaste, This painting was delivered a little while ago. The entire package was soaking wet inside and out. But because of the extra special care you took to protect it, the painting itself is not damaged. It is beautiful, and I am very happy to have it. But all is well now, and I am relieved. Thank you!
Janice, USA
I am writing to convey my gratitude in the service that you have provided me. We received the painting of the 10 gurus by Anup Gomay on the 2nd January 2019 and the painting was packaged very well. I am happy to say that the recipient of the gift was very very happy! The painting is truly stunning and spectacular in real life! Thank you once again for all your help that you provided.
Mrs. Prabha, United Kingdom
I am writing to relay my compliments of the excellent services provided by exoticindia. The books are in great condition! I was not expecting a speedy delivery. Will definitely return to order more books.
Dr. Jamuna, New Zealand
I just received my powder pink wool shawl. It is beautiful. I bought it to wear over my dress at my son's wedding this coming Spring & it will be perfect if it's chilly in the garden. The package came very promptly & I couldn't be more pleased.
