PRESERVING RARE PHOTOS, ARTICLES AND WEBSITE DESIGN
Late Dr. Venkataraja Puninchathaya was a rare personality who was a scholar, litterateur, exemplary teacher, orator, actor, Yakshagana narrator, Director and research scholar. He was the one among the few extinguishing manuscriptologists in multi languages. He was the first person to prove that Tulu language had its own script and said that it might be the originator of Malayalam script.
Though Dr. Puninchathaya was very popular among the intellectual masses in the ground. On the internet, there were less resources related to him. Most of his works were not even available digitally. So, we had to collect the hard copies of his works, photos and had to create soft copies so that we can upload in the website. Thanks to Vijayaraja Puninchathaya and Rashtrakavi Govinda Pai Samshodana Kendra for providing us useful works and resources of Sri Puninchathaya.
After the mammoth task of digitizing Puninchathaya’s works, we were able to finally build a beautiful website. This website is built from scratch using latest industry trends. Now, many of the students, organizations can easily find resources related to Puninchathaya online.
