For reasonably priced, good quality PostScript Type 1 or TrueType
indian language fonts contact:
    Mr. Shrikrishna Patil
    21647 Rainbow Drive
    Cupertino, CA 95014-4826

    Fax:   (408) 255 6443
    Voice: (408) 446 9144

Fonts cost from $35 to $50 each, multiple font packages are sold at a
discount. These fonts can be used in any Mac System 7.x or MS-Windows 3.x

And, I can personally vouch for this 78 year old artist, in fact I am
working with him to develop some easier text-entry mechanisms for indian
Many marathi language publications in the US and Canada make use of his
If you have any questions regarding his fonts, call him up or send me

And, just so this post is not full of commercial info, if you are looking
for freeware fonts, refer to the FAQs of comp.fonts and soc.culture.indian.
Telugu is available for TeX, though Kannada specifically is not.

Note: Though I am currently working with Mr. Patil, I have no commercial
interest in the sale of his fonts.
