ELLA KANNADA ABHIMAANIGALA VEDIKE INTERNATIONAL – EKAVI

 

 

EKAVI had proposed this in 2004 to GoK – in KANNADA and ENGLISH. What EKAVI had proposed in 2004 is in this email letter.  EKAVI send this to GoK to wakeup and correct the problems. This was also proposed to UNIVERSITY of MYSORE also in December 2004.  What happened ? Any things done by GoK ?? or University of Mysore ??
 
Dr. Lingadevaru Halemane knows in detail, what went on at University of Mysore in 2004 and RCILTS @ IISc in 2004 and the proposal made by EKAVI on KSD in 2004.
 
 
NOTHING has been done sofar by GoK or University of Mysore, till to date – August 1st 2009.
 
Looking at the status of the KANNADA SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT, this article KANNADAVAAGADA COMPUTER LOKA has come up now on August 1st 2009.
 
 
Now people are reading article KANNADAVAAGADA COMPUTER LOKA. Which came in PRAJAVANI on August 1st 2009. Contributers are Dr. U. B. Pavanaja, N.A.M. Ismail. Dr. K. V. Narayana and KANNADA CULPRIT Sri. G. N. Narasimhamurthy of KAGAPA.

 
When you read the article of August 1st 2009 written by these kannadigas, it shows the problems our KANNADA BHASHE is facing. Why it is not developed properly. EKAVI is pressing this since 2004 along with Lat Sri. Tejasvi, Dr. Kambar, Sri. Lingadevaru Halemane, Sri. G. V. Venkatsubbaiah, Sri. Rajaram and others.

 
What was Dr. U. B. Pavanaja doing from July 2004 till August 1st 2009 ?? Why Dr. U. B. Pavanaja kept quiet? What is the reason ?? Does Dr. U. B. PAVANAJA has to wait so long to say that we need UNICODE for KANNADA ???
 
 
EKAVI and all other KANNADA SOFTWARE Developers wrote extensively on UNICODE and what needs to be done in 2004. EKAVI has copies of all of these writings.
 
 
What was Mr. N. A. M. doing from July 2004 till August 1st 2009. Mr. Ismail has spent considerable time with Late Sri. Tejasvi on Kannada Software along with Sri. Hariprasad Nadig of Sampada.net. Mr. Ismail had written an article stating that Late Sri. Tejasvi was upset with Kannada University for putting KUVEMPU FONTS in OPEN SOURCE. Why Mr. ismail did not raise all these issues. Even Mr. Ismail knew about RCILTS @ IISc. Why Mr. Ismail did not raise the issues with concerned authorities ?? Why keep quiet when knowing things about what is happenning.
 
 
Even Dr. K. V. Narayana knew more information about Kannada Software Development. Even he did not raise the issues till August 1st 2009.
 
 
Dr. Kambar knows all the details. Even Dr. Kambar has presented letters to Ministers in GoK. Some of the letters were drafted by Dr. U. B. Pavanaja also. Even KSD issues were raised in Vidhana Parishat.
 
Dr. U. B. Pavanaja knows more information on NUDI and BARAHA fonst and he has extensively written emails, articles and gave presentations in mettings on the issue of Kannada software Development. Dr. U. B. Pavanaja needs to stand for TRUTH on these issues.
 
BARAHA VASU has written an email in year 2004 saying that he stole the IPR/GLYPHS of AKRUTHI Fonts when he released BARAHA 1.0 in the year 1997. BARAHA VASU stole in 1997 and BARAHA VASU acknowledges in 2004. Whatever BARAHA VASU further has released after BARAHA 1.0, becomes a STOLEN property. If any one wants to read the email written by BARAHA VASU, I willsend it to you.
 
Dr. U. B. Pavanaja in 2004 has written several emails to me about KANNADA FONTS ISSUES and he metions these facts in those emails. Most of the KANNADIGAS have read these emails and also GoK has been appraised of this year 2004. Dr. U. B. Pavanaja says in his emails in 2004 that BARAHA VASU has stolen the IPR of AKRUTHI Fonts in the release of BARAHA 1.0 Fonts. Dr. U. B. Pavanaja writes that BARAHA VASU had called him about the read only fonts that were available on Dr. U. B Pavanaja’s KANNADA website VISHWAKANNADA.com
 
Sri. Sathyanarayana, who happened to be the sthapaka kaaryadarshi of KAGAPA and worked in KAGAPA for four to five years, has written about 2o pages in KANNADA, about how KAGAPA released KALITHA and NUDI Fonts. Here Sri. Sathyanarayana mentions the way KAGAPA did KALITHA using BARAHA Fonts and then named the same KALITHA as NUDI Fonts and sold it to Govt. of KARNATAKA in 1997.
 
AKRUTHI FONTS owner Sri. ANAND has also written to me extensively in 2004, saying what has happened in KANNADA SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT. It is Sri. Anand is the one who received the email from BARAHA VASU in July 2004 and then he forwarded to me the same email.
 
These are all facts. Not Fictions. These facts makes it clear WHO RUINED the GROWTH of KANNADA SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT – KSD in Govt. of KARNATAKA. KAGAPA has led Govt. of KARNATAKA in wrong directions in KSD.
 
BARAHA and NUDI FONTS have DESTROYED the growth of KANNADA SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT in KARNATAKA STATE.

ELLA KANNADA ABHIMAANIGALA VEDIKE INTERNATIONAL – EKAVI
 
 

 
EKAVI had proposed this in 2004
 
A PROPOSAL TO SETUP
DEPARTMENT OF KANNADA LANGUAGE TECHNOLOGY AND SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT “DKLTSD”
Preamble
“Mahiti”- The Millennium IT policy released by the GoK included policies towards benefiting Kannada software development. Further, under The Millennium IT policy, GoK has committed itself to promote Kannada in Information Technology and provide incentives for the development of Kannada Software.
Background
(a) A passionate bunch of entrepreneurs had for over two decades pioneered and provided the facility of using Kannada on computers, when even International software developers like Microsoft had not provided such a facility.
(b) These developers enabled publishers to avail of the latest facilities like DTP and Electronic pre-press facilities to produce quality books, periodicals and Newspapers in Kannada. 
(c) Survival was always a challenge for these developers, for they had to fight piracy, obsolescence and restricted market volumes. But they fought on with love for Kannada as their main inspiration hoping that some day when Kannada is used widely on computers their pioneering efforts would pay back.
(d) Development of a Kannada software called NUDI was funded by GoK, and it was allowed to monopolise in the Government Departments and undertakings. But, NUDI software has non-standard fonts and this software has completely destroyed competitive opportunity for other local Kannada software developers, who were working in this field for past 20 years.
(e) There were as many as twenty Companies developing Kannada software, up to the period of year 2000. But, currently only three Kannada software development companies are surviving only due to their lust towards developing technology for Kannada. This is an indicator that Kannada software development is not lucrative enough for doing business. These three organizations have also stopped any further development of Kannada software due to the loss of investment in Kannada software.
(f) Kannada software is lagging far behind when compared to other languages, such as Tamil and Hindi. Wherein the development is well ahead and on par with other western languages. In these languages lot of work has been done in the areas such as Spellcheck, Grammar check, OCR, TTS, Voice recognition, Machine translation, Localisation etc.
Introduction
There is an urgent need to safeguard the interests of Kannada on computers and furtherance of Software & Technology development for the complex requirements of Kannada. Kannada software development can’t be equated with general software development because of its cultural context.
Lack of Kannada software and technologies may force the use of English, in the context of aggressive computerization in every level of Government Administration. This is already evident from the Mahithi Sindhu, Project Shiksha, which are based on the software with English interface and no software with Kannada interface is used.
Proposal
In view of the enormous work that has to be taken up in the future for Kannada software, there is an immediate necessity to create a department to look into the aspects of developing technologies and software for Kannada. This department needs to take up the responsibility of ensuring future developments. To further the cause of Tamil on computers, various Universities in Tamilnadu has already created study unit /department/centre of excellence.
In this context, It is high time for the Govt. to cater adequate funds for this inevitable contingency so as to go ahead with the requirements to fund the Department, which will enable us to undertake and accomplish the results and showcase our developments in the field of KANNADA LANGUAGE TECHNOLOGY AND SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT.
Activity
This department will undertake research and development of technologies for Kannada and conduct academic programmes such as MA in Computational Linguistics to develop human resources in the field of software development for Kannada and computational linguistics to enable NLP applications. All the resultant research work will be announced/distributed as Open Source without any royalty.
Areas of working
The proposed department will work in the areas of Localisation, NLP applications such as Translation, Voice Recognition, OCR, Human and computer interface etc.
 
Title of the project : Localisation
Localisation of application software starts from standardization of bi-lingual fonts or character  encoding for Kannada. It has to be noted that, there is no standard for bi-lingual fonts for Kannada. Further, the localization of application software involves standardization of glossaries in Kannada and development of various tools and software to achieve localization. The process of localization involves of application software involving redesigning of user interfaces such as dialogs boxes.
1. Localisation of Windows 98
Objective : The use of MS Windows 98 is predominant and is also included in the project shiksha and hence the need for developing a software to localize MS Windows 98 is critical to imparting training to Kannada medium students.
Budget : 56 Lakhs
2. Localisation of MS Windows based applications
Objective : Similarly the application software developed for MS Windows Operating System is critical for promotion of Kannada on computers.
Budget : 53 Lakhs
3. Localisation of Help contents
Objective : All the help contents has to be translated so as to enable the Kannada users to use the computers effectively.
Budget : 22 Lakhs 
4. Localisation of Web applications
Objective : Now a days more and more Web based applications are available to meet the various needs of the society. In order to reach the masses, all these applications need to be localized.
Budget : 35 Lakhs
 
Title of the project : Multimedia Authoring
Objective : Preparation of Learning/Teaching materials for the needs of Kannada users is always a cumbersome process. An easy to use authoring software needs to be developed to address the needs of the Kannada.
Budget : 120 Lakhs
 
Title of the project : NLP – Natural Language Processing

1. Spellchecker
Objective : Spellchecker software is required for basic application software such as wordprocessors.
Budget : 25 Lakhs
2. Grammar checker
Objective : In order to improve the creative writing and correct writing of text in Kannada, Grammar checker is an indispensable one and could be achieved by developing an appropriate software for the purpose.

Objective : For wordprocessors and page layout software, hyphenation is a critical component in formatting of text.
Budget : 9 Lakhs
5. Summarisation
Objective : Summarisation tools are evolving to extract the abstract of text.
Budget : 20 Lakhs 
6. Electronic Dictionary
Objective : Due to the agglutinative nature of writing Kannada word, a mere passive dictionary is of little help. In order to enhance the use of dictionary, an electronic dictionary is very much essential.
Budget : 22 Lakhs
7. Translation
Objective : Translation software are required for various domains such as administration, education, judicial, medical, commerce etc.
Budget : 91 Lakhs 
8. TTS
Objective : Text to speech software are in demand for various requirements such as announcements, voice synthesizers etc.
Budget :  25 Lakhs

Dr. U. B. Pavanja writes:
 
Making a font is an elaborate process. Artists have to draw each character (glyph) on paper, they have to be scanned, digitized, hinted, etc. It takes months for each font.
 
KGP should have the complete record of making of the fonts like original drawings by the artist, first raw digitized data, the final font, etc.
PAVANAJA was studying the glyphs of all Kannada fonts. When PAVANAJA opened Baraha, Akruti and Nudi fonts in a font editing software, PAVANAJA found that they all have the same glyph sets, even though their ASCII values are different.
 
As Sathyanarayana has detailed in his write-up, the glyphs from Akruti fonts were used in the first version of Baraha, which was then used in the first version of Nudi.

//ಈ ಕವಿ // ಈ ಕವಿತೆ, ಕನ್ನಡಿಗರಿಗಾಗಿ ….!!!!!
ನಾನು ಸಾಮಾನ್ಯವಾಗಿ ಉದ್ದೇಶಪೂರ್ವಕವಾಗಿ ಯಾವುದೇ ಕವಿತೆಯನ್ನು ಬರೆಯುವುದಿಲ್ಲ..ಅದು ಯಾವುದೋ ಏಕಾಂತದಲ್ಲಿ ತನ್ನಿಂದ ತಾನೇ ಅರಳುವ ಭಾವಕುಸುಮ.  ಆದರೆ ಈ ಕವಿ ಯಾ ಅಭಿಮಾನದ, ಮೇಲೆ ಈ ಕವಿತೆ, ಕನ್ನಡಿಗರಿಗಾಗಿ ….!!!!!

//ಈ ಕವಿ //
ಹುಟ್ಟಿದೆ ನೋಡಾ
ಹೊಳೆ ಯುತಲಿದೆ ನೋಡಾ
ಈ ಕವಿಯೇಮ್ಬ ಮೋಡ/
ಕನ್ನಡ ಕಂಪನು,
ಜಗದಗಲ ಹರಡಲು,
ಹೆಗಲಾಗಿಹ ನೋಗವು,
ಈ ಕವಿ ನೋಡಾ /
ಕನ್ನಡ ಮನಗಳ
ಕನಸಿನ ತೇರು,
ಕನ್ನಡ ಯಜ್ಞದ
ಧೀರ ಮುಂದಾಳು,/
ಈ ಕವಿ ಮೋಡ ಸುರಿಸುತಿಹುದು ನೋಡಾ
ಕನ್ನಡ,ಕನ್ನಡ ವೆಂಬ ಜಲಧಾರೆ,
ಈ ಜೀವ ಜಲದಲ್ಲೇ,
ಕನ್ನಡ ಬೀಜ,
ಗಿಡವಾಗಿ, ಮರವಾಗಿ
ಆಗುತಿಹುದು ಕಲ್ಪವೃಕ್ಷ,/
ಇದಕಿರಲಿ ನಿಮ್ಮೆಲ್ಲರ ಅಭಯ,
ಕನ್ನಡಕ್ಕಿಲ್ಲ ಇನ್ನು ಯಾವ ಭಯ//
ಹುಟ್ಟಿದೆ ನೋಡ //ಫ //

दिशा/ದಿಶಾ/DISHA,

ಈಕವಿ ಕನ್ನಡಿಗರಿಗೆ ಕನ್ನಡಕ್ಕೋಸ್ಕರ ಕರ್ನಾಟಕಕ್ಕೆ ಒಳ್ಳೆಯುದು ಆಗಲಿ ಅಂತ ಕೆಲಸ ಮಾಡುತ್ತಿದೆ.
ಈಕವಿ ಮಾಡುತ್ತಿರುವುದನ್ನು ನೋಡಿ ಗಮನಿಸಿ ನೀನು ಬರೆದ ಈ ಕವಿತೆ ಬಹಳ ಸೊಗಸಾಗಿದೆ.

Pavanaja Wrote:

Unfortunately, in every meeting this fact was accepted by
everyone but s/w development orders were undertaken
clandestainly by KGP without informing the executive committee
.

Some such examples -
1) Font conversion for Vijaya Karnataka
2) Payroll s/w for D.I.T., Govt of Karnataka. Mr Shrinatha
Shastry’s son is working with Mr Rajkrishna at DIT for this job.
3) Culture directory for Dept of Kannada and Culture, Govt of
Karnataka. A sample has been made.
4) Dasa Sahithya web-site for Dept of Kannada and Culture, Govt
of Karnataka. A sample web-site was made and shown to the
concerned authorities.

None of these were discussed in any of the meetings.

Pavanaja wrote:

In fact, Mr Vivek Kulkarni suggested me to release the source
code under GPL. He told me to do so about 8 months ago. When I
mentioned this to Mr Shrinatha Shastry, he stronlgy opposed it
and told me not to do so. He said he will talk to Mr Vivek
Kulkarni about it. I don’t know what happenned afterwards.
Probably if we had released it under GPL, someone might have
made a Linux version by this time. Many people from Linux
community regularly ask me the question “why the source code is
not available under GPL?”. We should release the source code
since this is Govt sponsored project and hence every citizen has
a right on that. If someone files a Public Intereset Litigation
in the courts, we will be bound to release the source code. It
is better to release the source code before someone forces us to
do so.

Dear Friends,

I strongly support Mr. Puraniks view and what was decided in our recent

meetings that the secretary of KGP must answer to all such queries to avoid

ambiguities. I feel other members can send their views to Secretary, KGP

who can make corrections before sending them. As the time has come to show

the strengths of KGP as an organization as felt my many members it is good

for all of us to stand behind our Secretary and pose one opinion as

standard. The other organizations who are interested in KGP activities

should get professional and unambiguous support.

Sir,

I am sure and confident that there is no problem with kannada-nudi.lib and

kannada-nudi.dll. for defferent compilers and linkers you need to change the

defnitions of the functions and calling method in header file. which you have the

source and you can modify that also. And I am also very sure that you dont need

to change the calling convension since from the begining of KalithaI am using

thewindows standard calling convension ‘__stdcall’ and still it is same. so itmust

work.

Most of the standard libraries provided with companies wont work for different

compilers, As a programmer we need to do some R&D and do some changes in

our source code by which we can use the library. Anybody who has used

windows SDKs, Win32 APIs will be able to easily use my Nudi SDK. cause it

comes out with standard convensions.

I have installed windows ME on my machine yesterday I have some problem

in installing Boreland C++ today I will install it.onceI install everythingI will be

able to give you a nudi header file which is compatible with Boreland c++

compiler so that you can reduce some borden on the programmer.

As a nudi developer I can give you support for nudi as early as possible by me,

but I can’t teach anybody C, C++ or what ever, cause I am not a computer faculty

and also I am not paid for that.

So its not a Nudi lib problem its a programmer’s problem.

You know C, C++, VC++, Palm OS, Windows CE, Win32 Programming, You

are the Project Manager / Developer of Nudi, Palm Nudi, Nudi for Jornada, All

coding also done by you, and I am surprised that you cant solve a silli linking

problem!

Once I have installed Boreland C++, I will call you and tell you the instructions

to link kannada-nudi.lib. what are the canges need to be made in header files and

all those things.

To: The members of the Software Sub-committee, KGP.

cc: Executive Committee members, KGP.

As all of you are aware I am making a Kannada version of

the world-famous LOGO program, used to teach programming

concepts to school children. The program is written in

Borland C++ Version 5.02. 3 years ago, when I started it,

it was using Akruti fonts but no DLL. Later on it was

changed over to Kalitha font and Kaliha DLL. This

conversion was done by Harsha, who is the developer of

Kalitha and Nudi. Recently when I have appointed a

developer to complete the task. Now the DLL and LIB to be

used have become Nudi. When Kalitha was made, a DLL and LIB

files were given for programmers. LOGO is working with

these DLL and LIB to some extent. LOGO has two windows to

enter the text. In one window, the Kalitha DLL and LIB are

working. In another window Kalitha DLL and LIB are not

working.

When we tried to use the Nudi DLL and LIB, we get linking

errors. It says “Error in Object Module Format (OMF)”. The

header file given with Kalitha and Nudi are different. The

functions and their properties have changed. I informed the

problem to Harsha, the developer of Nudi. He told over

phone that the problem must be in linking. I tried again. I

even called one Borland C++ expert from HP and asked him to

look into. He said that the person who wrote the DLL and

LIB only can solve this problem. When I wrote a mail to

Harsha about this he replied arrogantly that he is not a

faculty to teach C++ programming. He could have tried

linking his DLL and LIB using Borland C++ and sent me a

sample as requested by me. The Nudi SDK contains only a VB

sample and no C++ sample. Now I have decided to finish the

LOGO project without explicitly making use of the SDK.

Instead I will give a LOGO package with all fonts being

changed to Nudi Akshsara. The user has to manually invoke

the Nudi keyboard driver before starting LOGO. This is how

people are using Nudi for DTP. I don’t have any other

option left.

Some contradictions in Harsha’s mail:

In one place he says “As a programmer we need to do some R&D and do some changes in our source code by which we can use the library”. In another place he says “Anybody who has used windows SDKs, Win32 APIs will be able to easily use my Nudi SDK. cause it comes out with standard convensions”.

Don’t you think these two are contradictory to each other? Why at all one should do R & D to use any library is that library is using standard conventions? Again he says “So its not a Nudi lib problem its a programmer’s problem”. But he has not substantiated his claim.

I remember what Mr Vivek Kulkarni has told, about 15 months ago, after watching the demo of Kalitha at KGP. He told “once you release this product, the Kannada s/w industry in Karnataka will be shut down. Then you should be ready to fill the vacuum. You should be able to provide full-pledged support. You should have an office to answer telephone calls, have a web-based support, suppport by email, etc. When you make the roadmap, ask for enough money for support activities also.”.

I am an executive committee member of KGP. I mentioned the problem on Dec.1. So far I did not get any sample file as promised. If an exec. commiitee member also can not get

support for a simple linking problem then I wonder what will be the status of 5 crore Kannadigas who will become dependent on KGP for Kannada s/w developments, mainly for the toolkit.

I don’t put all the blames on Harsha. He is working at Tally. He works mostly up to night 10-11 pm, almost daliy. He has no time to spare for KGP, inspite of a PC being

given to him and money being paid above and over the given PC. KGP should have someone work full-time for Nudi. I request the software sub-committee people to look into this serious problem. Please take remedial action before an outsider writes about these peoblems in newspapers.

What work Rajkrishna and Krishnamurthy are doing? Why are they being paid? As I understand, Nudi works is done by Harsha and Santhosh. Fonts are being made by someone from Koppa. Staroffice and Linux work is done by Ramsimha and his team. Then what are the roles assigned to Rajkrishna and Krishnamurthy? Why can’t they be trained and made in-charge for Nudi? So that we need not torture Harsha.

Subject: [KGPExecMembers] Problems with Nudi DLL’s

Date: Monday, December 23, 2002 5:51 PM

The KGP Executive Committee members,

I am quite pained to hear of the lack of support for the Nudi DLL’s that Pavanaja is facing. If a KGP exec committee member has to face this one can well imagine the plight of a common kannada software developer.

I think the main reason for this kind of problem is that the whole software development for Kalitha and Nudi started of in a hush hush manner and was intended to stab the back of those Independent Software Vendors(ISVs) who were working in this area including people like us who were used by M/s. Srinath Sastry and Narsimurthy to tap on us for any technical expertise, when they had no idea about the the technical issues regarding kannada keyboards and coding issues.

They got a part time developer like Harsha to reverse engineer the fonts and coding and the workings of software like Akruti (submitted to the KGP for evaluation). This is how painstaking work which took software vendors more than a decade to come to the current levels could be easily done within a year or so.

>From the statement of Pavanaja:

” I remember what Mr Vivek Kulkarni has told, about 15 months

ago, after watching the demo of Kalitha at KGP. He told

“once you release this product, the Kannada s/w industry in

Karnataka will be shut down. Then you should be ready to

fill the vacuum. You should be able to provide full-pledged

support. You should have an office to answer telephone

calls, have a web-based support, suppport by email, etc.

When you make the roadmap, ask for enough money for support

activities also.”.

It becomes very clear that the plan to eliminate ISV’s was more than 15 months old. Some blame should also be placed at Pavanaja’s shoulder for having aided and abbetted Sastry and Narsimurthy in this murky business. After all it was he who introduced this very same Harsha to KGP.

Firstly, I think the only way of cleaning up this shady business is to open up the source code to the technically competent executive committee members of the KGP to start with so that support could be provided by them rather than some part time programmers who dance to the tune of a select few.

Later on in true open source methodology, the source may be put out in the public domain available to all Kannadigas.

Secondly, from various media releases we have seen a effort by prominent KGP office bearers belittling the motives of some of the ISV’s saying that they are interested in only money.

I would like to ask a simple question. Which of the members of KGP can purport to live without money. Let us accept that nothing is possible without a commercial interest. One cannot hope to live on government doles forever. Any project, no matter how noble it may be, including promotion of Kannada software will be sustainable in the long run only if it is self sustaining in economic terms.

Yes, we as ISV’s charge money for software, because to develop it, to sustain the development and support it continuously costs money and we have no govt. doles to rely upon.

Nudi’s development and release is not the end of the problem. People like me who have developed Akruti many many years ago are still grappling with the problem of supporting our users accross the length and breadth of the country adequately. So expecting a rag tag bunch of amateurs to do it effectively is asking for too much.

I hope the KGP executive committee members put their head to the long term issue and come out with right answers.

More dangerously, we as ISV’s were told that since there is no need for the basic font and interface software after NUDI, we were told to work on Kannda applications. Our company along with ISL came out with e-Karyalaya, a general administration software for govt. offices.

We find a repeat situation happening in the same hush hush and murky manner wherein after having been assured at committee meetings that KGP will not get into applications, we find that KGP employed people like Rajkrishna along with Srinath Sastry’s son are dabbling with DIT and KDA to come out with a reverse engineered software called e-Adalitha.

I would like Mr. Sastry to state the facts very clearly as to what his intentions and interests in this matter are. At least we as ISV’s are upfront in declaring our commercial interest. The worst people according to me are those who say someting in the front and do something else in the back.

If any of the KGP executive committee members or their family members or proxy organisations have any such hidden agendas, I think they should be bold enough to declare it openly and not pretend to be noble hypocrites.

With deep regret at the shameful going ons at KGP.

Anand S.K.

I did not introduce Harsha to KGP. He is a distant relative of

Mr Narasimhamurthy. One day, when I had gone to KGP, he was

introduced to me by Mr Narasimhamurthy and Mr Shrinatha Shastry.

I saw the work done by him on DOS regarding Kannada and took him

to Tally. At Tally, we had a plan of developing keyboard drivers

for Indian lanmguages, whih was later abondoned and the toolkits

were bought from CDAC.

I am not part of any murky business. The very first version of

Kalitha was made to test the compliance of other Kannada s/w to

the Govt notification mainly towards keyboard, font encoding and

sorting. When the demo was given, it was not in the form of a

package. After seeing the demo, Mr Vivek Kulkarni suggested to

make it into a package. He also suggested to make a roadmap of

the things to be done apart from this s/w. Then the roadmap was

prepared by Mr Shrinatha Shastry based on the skeleton provided

by me. I gave the plan with cost estimations. But almost all

amounts mentioned by me (based on the industry standard payments

for project manager and developer) were later on slashed to

almost 1/4 th of what I suggested. for ex., I had suggested

Rs.50,000 per font which was reduced to Rs.10,000 per font. Now

everyone knows what happenned to the fonts. There was even an

article in Prajavani’s letters to the editor column mentioning

about the unprofessional fonts supplied by KGP. I had suggested

two alternatives regarding fonts-

1) Buy some good quality fonts from existing vendors

2) Find out a good professioanl font developer of fonts and give

contract to him to make fonts. I had found out one such person

from Pune and requested him to give a good quote for a non-

profit organisation. He gave a quote of Rs.30,000 per font.

Myself and Harsha were strongly against releasing Kalitha without a professioanl font. But all these were thrown to wind and some un-professionals were assigned the task of making fonts.

I had suggested that KGP should have a list of empanelled s/w developers of Kannada which can be submitted to Govt. Govt can give orders to these developers for Kannada s/w developments. My philosophy is “live and let live”. But the philosophy now

followed by KGP is “live and let die”.

I am the person who had foreseen the situation regarding Kannada s/w developments. KGP can not supply s/w to entire Karnataka. Hence it should not venture into application developments. This task should be left to professional developers who will be able to offer professional support for the product and services they offer. Kannada s/w developmental opportunities start with the Govt. If these are fully grabbed by KGP, the Kannada s/w industry will die. Then there will be no industry left to supply Kannada s/w to entire Karnataka. Supplying Kannada s/w to entire Karnataka is definitely beyond the capabilities of KGP.

Unfortunately, in every meeting this fact was accepted by

everyone but s/w development orders were undertaken

clandestainly by KGP without informing the executive committee.

Some such examples -

1) Font conversion for Vijaya Karnataka

2) Payroll s/w for D.I.T., Govt of Karnataka. Mr Shrinatha

Shastry’s son is working with Mr Rajkrishna at DIT for this job.

3) Culture directory for Dept of Kannada and Culture, Govt of

Karnataka. A sample has been made.

4) Dasa Sahithya web-site for Dept of Kannada and Culture, Govt

of Karnataka. A sample web-site was made and shown to the

concerned authorities.

None of these were discussed in any of the meetings.

> Firstly, I think the only way of cleaning up this shady business is to open up the source code to the technically competent executive committee members of the KGP to start with so that support could be provided by them rather than some part time programmers who dance to the tune of a select few.

I agree. I am the initiator of Kalitha (which later became

Nudi). When I asked for the source code for the latest version

to try to make a Unicode version using .NET, I was not given the

source code. I could have helped in making a Unicode version as

I have developed an Opentype font which is needed for Unicode

version.

> Later on in true open source methodology, the source may be put out in

> the public domain available to all Kannadigas.

In fact, Mr Vivek Kulkarni suggested me to release the source code under GPL. He told me to do so about 8 months ago. When I mentioned this to Mr Shrinatha Shastry, he stronlgy opposed it and told me not to do so. He said he will talk to Mr Vivek Kulkarni about it. I don’t know what happenned afterwards. Probably if we had released it under GPL, someone might have made a Linux version by this time. Many people from Linux community regularly ask me the question “why the source code is not available under GPL?”. We should release the source code since this is Govt sponsored project and hence every citizen has a right on that. If someone files a Public Intereset Litigation in the courts, we will be bound to release the source code. It is better to release the source code before someone forces us to do so.

But then the Nudi SDK should not have any bugs and there should be technical support. I am finding problems here.

I am surprised by the silence of other committee members. We need more committed members to the cause of Kannada than just committee members.

My words are always bitter. Because truth is always bitter. I believe in “vasthunistha” rather than “vyakthinistha”.

I request all the committee members to think beyond some individuals and look at the cause of Kannada.

Thanks for everyone for reading this lengthy mail.

Subject: Meeting to sort out issues

Date: Thursday, December 26, 2002 2:47 PM

Dear KGP Exec committee members,

I think the suggestion to hold a face to face meeting to sort out the issues aired earlier is fine, can the date and time be worked out and informed well in advance.

Most active groups like the open source forums have very lively discussions online. These are precursors to the actual face to face meetings. I think it may be a healthy practice to follow, since most of the participants would already have done their homework on the issues to be discussed. The reasons for this is everybody’s time is precious and physical meetings entails a lot of time and effort and it should be used in the final stages for conclusive action plans and not for debating.

Online discussions are far better suited for airing out contrary and dissenting views, which can be resolved to a large extent by online debate. This is a very efficient means to arrive at consensus which can be ratified at physical meetings. I disagree that these are chain mails. The first motive should be exchange of views and to step up the level of involvement of the normally dormant members. In fact I find a very disturbing silence on part of the key functionaries of the KGP and complete lack of participation.

In fact though we call ourselves Ganaka Parishat, there is hardly any usage of this wonderful electronic medium for interaction as has been pointed out earlier by Pavanaja. The advantages are besides encouraging transparency it is self documenting and if there is a fear that they may degenerate to mudslinging then the very fact that everything a person says or reacts to is being recorded is enough reason for the medium to be self policing. It is very much like putting our venerable MLA’s and MP’s on camera. Let the people at large judge the quality of the debate and not some interested censors or editors. That is if we have nothing to fear in being forthright and we have the will to swallow bitter truth.

So much so that most of our KGP business could be conducted on email or better still on live online discussion forms to save time and physical inconvenience and beat the distance barrier.

Hope to hear from more of you soon. With regards.

Mahithi Sindhu nonexistent in schools

Mahithi Sindhu nonexistent in schools
 
DH News Service, Srinivaspura:
 
 
 
The prestigious Mahithi Sindhu programme launched during the former Chief Minister S M Krishna has almost become non existence in the schools of Srinivaspura taluk from past two years.
 
The programmes was started in 1000 schools in rural and urban areas. For nearly five years the programmes was run successfully. The contract for running the programmes was then given to prominent private IT institutions like NIIT, Aptech and Edukong.

But as the government changed the programme ran to trouble. The newly formed coalition government under Dharam Singh took more than year to decide continuity of the programme. During this time Mahithi Sindhu programme was stopped.

But after the teachers protested the programme was restarted and the contract to run the programme was awarded to public sector IT company Keonics.But things turned worse as company failed to do its responsibility.
Though the it appointed teachers to teach children computers it didn’t pay them salaries. It also failed to provide training given to teachers before the actual job.

The computers which were not used for nearly a year are defunct now  and are of no use. It is the same even with printers which has also joined the useless list. The rooms in which these computers are kept is also in dilapidated condition. The room doesn’t have either electric and phone connection. The generator is  also defunct.Though teachers have complained about this to Public Instruction Department and Keonics both of them are shifting their responsibilities on each other.

Keonics till now hasn’t replied to any of the requests made by teachers. On other hand Department has clearly stated that it is no way responsible to the programme.But the teachers appointed under the programme promptly open the doors of the room every day and patiently wait for the repairs of the computers where some computers still function.

Parents of the children are now cursing the decision of handing the programme to government company. Many of them feel that programme was better under private people who did the job efficiently and students would have had the opportunity to learn the computers.

Though all the facilities exists improper maintenence and apathetic attitude of the government has stopped the poor rural students from learning the computers which is order of the day. Students at this school are still waiting for the commencement of this programme though it is the year end.
