Most computer-friendly people would have seen this sentence atleast once: The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog, a pangram (a phrase that uses all the letters of the English alphabet) used to test typewriters and computer keyboards because it is nicely coherent and short.

Now, all those who know to read Kannada, I request you to read the above four lines (written in Kannada) before continuing to read this post.

Ok, now that you have read them, isn’t it amazing to know that they contain the complete set of letters from the Kannada alphabet, the first of its kind? Incidentally, it was composed by Shathavadhani R. Ganesh, a true genius.

Full story here.

  4. Its easy in English since only 26 alphabets, but Kannada has 50+ alphabets, a few of them not used in daily conversations, nor in modern literary works.

    Hats off to this guy.
