[Tugindia] Kannada in Unicode in LaTeX

I am sure that this must have been asked before but I have not been able
to find it.

I have some Kannada strings that need to go into a PDF. I do not need an
input method like KannadaLatex[1]. I have the strings as Unicode
already. I've tried using the inputenc package but the error was:

         Package inputenc Error: Unicode char \u8:ಇ not set up for use
         with LaTeX.

I did find a guide[2] for Hindi that I tried to adapt for Kannada as the
TITUSCBZ font does have Kannada glyphs as well. However, I was unable to
find ttf2tfm.

Any help would be much appreciated.
