The next to last issue of Frontline, which I only got around to
reading last night, contains a review which will be of interest to
many of us: the review is accessible online at <http://
www.flonnet.com/fl2223/stories/20051118000607600.htm>, and deals with
a CD-ROM edition of the original Epigraphia Carnatica with
Supplements and a new Index. Curiously, the review does not indicate
where this CD-ROM can be obtained, and at what price --- the review
only makes clear the CD-ROM has been brought out by the Southern
Regional Centre (Bangalore) of the Indian Council of Historical
Research (ICHR), and is the brainchild of Prof. S. Settar. It would
seem to be a potentially very important research tool.
Would those who have more information on this CD-ROM (the quality of
the data entry, and how the thing can be obtained) please come forward?
By the way, other issues of Frontline in recent months have also
brought items on new, post-Tsunami discoveries on the shore at
Mahabalipuram, and new discoveries of supposedly ancient Tamil Brahmi
inscriptions/ostraca from other sites (if I remember well). Has
anybody outside of the ASI seen and evaluated these discoveries?
With thanks in advance,
