Tirumalamba, a poet of the Vijayanagara Empire, wrote "Varadambica Parinayam", the story of marriage of King Achyuta Deva Raya, in Sanskrit.[1]

Tirumalamba wrote that it was the task of Arya Mahile, the women concerned about Arya Dharma, to wake up the Mother (land). Tirumalamba wrote a number of poems invoking Kannadaness and the Kannada nation. C.N.Mangala, a noted Kannada critic observes that these were the poems to express Kannada nationalism for the very first time in Kannada.[2]
