The Class 6 student has been learning Halegannada, a language that transformed from Purvada halegannada or pre-old Kannada during the reign of the Kadambas of Banavasi around the 5th century.
Finding the language filled with tongue twists, Samruddhi decided to throw herself into learning it at the age of eight years.
“My mother used to read a book, Rannana Gadayudda, which is about Ranna - a famous poet in Kannada language.
The youngster can now even recite some poems of Ranna, the 10th-century poet considered a gem of ancient Kannada literature.
“I also heard that the Infosys co-founder Sudha Murty is learning the language as well.
