The 'GPL' that these fonts had was the 'General Public License' wasn't
it ? And not the GNU General Public License. I may be mistaken though

I've been, in the past, known to berate and sigh C-DAC. In recent
times I've arrived at the conclusion that there's no upside thinking
that TDIL/MinIT/C-DAC will eventually figure out that selling services
around their products make for a better business case than trying to
hawk the products themselves. Or, that LGPL licensing their products
might make it easier to have an application developer network around
