This is the opinion of Prof. Bilimale:
"Dear Mr. Warburg, I have read more than 150 entries written in
Tulu language using Kannada script. Some of the entries are too
short, but there are no factual errors. All entries are written
in Tulu and I strongly recommend these entries should available
for public at the earliest. Tulu is one of the most ancient
language of India having very rich oral traditions and other
unique features. I believe Tulu scholars spread all over the world
will enrich this wiki, and make this one of the most useful and
I think we can therefore approve this wiki.
