eShabda: Bringing Indians Closer to their Mother Tongue
Gujarati is a widely spoken regional language with rich literature and great authors contributing to it even today. Although it is widely popular in west India, there has never been a UNICODE font developed for the language which made it impossible for publishers to make literature in this language available to the native readers with a good search ability and ease of typing or reading.
