NUDI and BARAHA have destroyed the growth of KANNADA. In the name of FREE SOFT WARE BARAHA and FREE WARE NUDI, is jeopardizing the other SOFTWARE DEVELOPERS coming forward and developing more applications in KANNADA.

NUDI and BARAHA have destroyed the growth of KANNADA. In the name of FREE SOFT WARE BARAHA and FREE WARE NUDI, is jeopardizing the other SOFTWARE DEVELOPERS coming forward and developing more applications in KANNADA.

We all know what has happened at KGP. What Srinatha Sastry, Pandithradhya and Narasimha Murhty has done at KGP and their PIRACY/COPYING of IPR of other person AKRUTI Fonts.

We all have received the letters written by Mr. S. K. Anand, OWNER of AKRUTHI Fonts. AKRUTHI Fonts is the source for BARAHA and NUDI Fonts.

We all have received the Email of VASU, ADMISSION OF GUILT by Sheshadri Vasu of BARAHA written to owner of AKRUTHI Fonts Mr. S. K. Anand.

We all have received articles written by Dr. U. B. Pavanaja in detail the Birth of BARAHA and how BARAHA has been bundled in NUDI FONTS which is sold to Govt. of Karnataka for 30 Lakhs.

We all know about APPLESOFT and what work they have done for KSD. One of the Kannada Software Developer affected by BARAHA and NUDI Fonts PIRACY.

We all know about SRG Systems Ltd and it’s work for KSD since 1987. Is another Kannada Software Developer who stopped dealing with KANNADA since KGP / KAGAPA sold PIRATED NUDI Fonts to Govt. Of Karnataka. KAGAPA has put KSD in trouble with the help of BARAHA.

VASU can tell now all over the world that he is providing FREE SOFTWARE. He is giving it FREE because it does not belong to him and someone else has put sweat equity and they were selling that one in open market. VASU and BARAHA has destroyed that opportunity for AKRUTI Fonts owner Mr. Anand. In the name of FREE KANNADA SOFTWARE BARAHA, VASU has destroyed the growth of KANNADA.

We all have received articles written by KGP/KAGAPA Founding Secretary Mr. A. Sathyanarayana. He has explained in detail how NUDi came into existence by using BARAHA Fonts of VASU.

We should question KGP and it’s THREE MAIN Executives, WHY THEY ARE KEEPING SILENT ON THESE ISSUES. They should be held responsible for all the wrong doings in KANNADA SOFTWARE.

BARAHA and NUDI Kannada Fonts, Which are copied/Pirated have destroyed the growth of KANNADA Software. In the name of FREE SOFTWARE Kannadigas have been duped by BARAHA and NUDI.

BARAHA has admitted his guilt. This itself shows whatever BARAHA is today is because of COPYING and PIRATING the INTELELCTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS “IPR” of some one elses product. That is how BARAHA started when it released BARAHA 1.0. BARAHA Fonts has created more problems to KSD.


BARAHA needs to elaborate and show on it’s efforts on:

1. Standardisation of KANNADA.

2. Data Portability to various formats and OS of KANNADA.

BARAHA’s VASU say: “I have focused more on standardization issues and portability of data to various formats and Operating Systems, which was ignored (deliberately for business interests?) by other software vendors.” It is easy for VASU to write this and make this statement to get people’s support. Now he needs to support what he has written here. He needs to write in detail what he has done to make this statement.

NUDI and BARAHA have destroyed the growth of KANNADA. In the name of FREE SOFT WARE BARAHA and FREE WARE NUDI, is jeopardizing the other SOFTWARE DEVELOPERS coming forward and developing more applications in KANNADA. But still some are doing it. it is very hard for them until Govt. of Karnataka removes an order saying that all departments have to use NUDI Fonts.

  2. If I have seen further than others, it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants.
    Isaac Newton

    As a kannadiga and a IT guy, I don’t want each developer who is working to implement kannada in cyberspace to start from re-inventing the wheel. I congradulate Mr.Vasu and others for work, instead of in fighting, it is time to set aside our personal interests move forward to give better products to our fellow kannadigas.

  4. I have know this KGP and its notorious activities for quite sometime. One of the persons involved in it (calls himself the founder of KGP), Srinatha Sasthry is nothing more than a troubled man with fanatic ideas. He is the intelligent equivalent of Karnataka Rakshana Vedike people and such who claim to ‘protect’ kannada. In the process what they are doing is talibanisation of one beautiful language. People have started hating kannada because of such people. This srinatha shastry is also one such person, but much more dangerous than the muscled thugs of KRV. In his hated vision for other languages, and twisted non-existing purpose for ‘protecting’ kannada, he has created more damage by doing all such unprogressive limited capability software like BARAHA and thrust it on others. Unsuspecting people have started using it and praising it too because they go it free! That which is given free for any reasons will not develop. This is true where ever one goes. Because of some stupid fear and fanatism, people like Srinatha Sashtry have done the ultimate harm to the very existance of kannada. Think about it…while KRV has created hatred among the youth and present generation towards kannada, Srinatha Shastry and others have totally stopped its development by giving something free, thereby stalling others who could have pumped in real lot of money for developing software and language which is very very critical. No hope. thats all I can say.
