Mangalore: It is not true that ancient Tulu history was not documented. Within the limits, our elders have unconventionally documented the history, opined well-known historian Dr.Pundikai Ganapayya Bhat.  

Speaking as a resource person on ‘Writings of Tulunadu history- The early footprints’, which was the first session in the webinar lecture series being organised by the Mangalore University, PG Department of History and Archaeology of the University College Mangaluru, in association with MANUSHA (Mangalore University History Teachers’ Association) on Saturday, he said that amateur historian began systematic documentation of the history in the early 20th century.   

He recalled the contribution of legends like Polali Sheenappa Hegade, Manjeshwar Ganapathi Rao Aigal, and Manjeshwar Govinda Pai, who unfortunately didn’t recognised for his writings on Tulu history. “Most of them stayed in villages, not trained and didn’t have any facilities for the documentation. Despite all odds, they achieved this just because of their passion,” he added.  

Mangalore University Vice-Chancellor Prof. P. Subrahmanya Yadapadithaya hoped that this webinar series would help us to know unveiled things about Tulu culture. Principal Dr. Anasuya Rai, in her presidential address, lauded the innovative endeavour of the department.
