Mangalore, Apr 21: Works relating to the construction of ‘Tulu Bhavan’ being built by Karnataka Tulu Sahitya Academy were initiated near Lord Mahaganapati Temple in Urwa store in the city on Saturday April 21.

State assembly speaker, N Yogish Bhat, MP, Nalin Kumar Kateel, city deputy mayor, Amitakala, academy president, Umanath Kotian, and others were present at a function organized for the purpose.
The proposal of the academy to have its own Tulu Bhavan is being realized after several years.

With the acquisition of spacious premises, the academy will be free to expand its horizons and serve Tulu better, those present at the function felt.

At present, Tulu Academy functions from rented premises in the city corporation building at Lalbagh here.

    Dear friends, it is indeed a very good news for all of us Tulunadu people, not just for Tulu speaking. I sincerely hope that one day the credit of being original local language will come to Tulu and all the other invading languages will fade away. Good initiative by Tulu Sahitya Academy, I wholeheartedly offer my support to any initiative to be taken by leaders.

    Its a happy occasion to initiate steps to build Tulu Bhavan in Tulunaadu(Kudla)
    One important point is missed by the participants in the function is that there must be concerted efforts towards getting recognition for Tulu language in the 8th Schedule of the Constitution and bring this Davidian language under Constitutional languages.Tulu is a oldest Dravidian language spoken by nearly 2.00 million people has culturally rich heritage.
    All concerned should aim at getting Constitutional status for the language by the time Tulu Bhavan gets ready for innaugaration next year.This is the dream of Tulu people.
