Badaga Script with [English] Qwerty key pad

Badaga Script with [English] Qwerty key pad

It is fantastic that a lot of efforts are being made to develop a Badaga script by Kadasoley Yogesh, Anandha Raju, Saravana Kumar Raju and others. Each has a different script to offer.

Meanwhile, I feel, it may be possible to use English alphabet and special characters that are available in a standard 'QWERTY key pad' to 'write Badagu'.

The special characters are used since we do not have equivalent English letters for some letters like La - ள, Na - ண ,  etc.
Special character like [colon] : is used to avoid writing 'a' twice in many words like 'baalu - tail'.

See the examples below :-

a:du - ஆடு, Dance, sheep/Goat
