#Tululipi trends on Twitter: Demands on rise to include the language in Eighth Schedule


Team Udayavani, May 3, 2020, 10:41 AM IST

An appeal to remind the government to include Tulu in the Eighth Schedule of the constitution has been trending on social media. Tuluvas have been sharing their love and support for their language with over five thousand tweets already.

Tulu is a Dravidian language whose speakers are concentrated in two coastal districts of Karnataka and in Kasaragod district of Kerala.

The present-day Tulu linguistic majority area is confined to the region of Tulu Nadu, which comprises the districts of Dakshina Kannada and Udupi in Karnataka and the northern part of Kasaragod district of Kerala up to the river Payaswani, or Chandragiri.

The cities of Mangaluru, Udupi, and Kasaragod are the epicenters of Tulu culture.

So, Tulu, along with other deserving languages, could be included in the Eighth Schedule of the Constitution in order to substantially materialize the promise of equality of status and opportunity mentioned in the Preamble.

Netizens have been posting their comments in this regard with hashtag Tululipi and Tuluscript along with the photos of stone inscription Palm-leaf manuscripts found in Tulunad and this has gone viral on the microblogging site.

Here are some of the tweets:
