According to the Tamil scholar Iravata Mahadevan, influence of Kannada can be found in the Tamil inscriptions of 200 BC to 100 BC.

The words “Ghata sapta shahi” were found in a Greek drama written in 200 AD. A full-bodied Kannada text is found in the Halmidi Inscription of 450 AD. Over 30,000 Kannada inscriptions found were dated after that period.

“Though `Kavirajamarga’, dated 900 AD, was the first book, several samples of Kannada prose and poetry that were older were available. Pampa, the great poet, began a new literary tradition by writing his works in `Champu’ style,” he said.
