    I have already referred to the earliest work : Kaviraja-marga which is the only work that mentions the boundaries of Karnataka as having spread from Godavari to Kaveri.

He further adds "the post-colonial novel, becomes a trope for an ideal hybridity by which the West celebrates not so much Indianness, whatever that infinitely complex thing is, but its own historical quest, its reinterpretation of itself".

Saletore have accepted the trustworthiness of the historical events as recorded in the inscriptions at Sravanabelgola.

The tenth group contains writings of Tirumular, while the eleventh one contains miscellaneous works of Nakkirar, Nambiandar and others. This brief glimpse into the Jaina maths clearly shows that mostly this is an uncharted area where a lot of research needs to be done. Harsha-charita, the other work of Bana, is the only surviving specimen of akhyayika known to us.
