Kannada Rajyothsava

November 1st 2006 in Kannada

ಇಂದು ಕರ್ನಾಟಕ ಏಕೀಕರಣದ ಸುವರ್ಣ ಮಹೋತ್ಸವ.

ಹೊರನಾಡಿನಲ್ಲಿ ಕುಳಿತಿರುವ ನನ್ನಂತವರಿಗೆ, ಇ-ಅಂಚೆ ಮುಖಾಂತರ ಕನ್ನಡ ಅಕ್ಷರಗಳನ್ನು ನೋಡಿದರೇ ಏನೊ ಒಂದು ಥರ ಖುಷಿ :)

ಜೈ ಕರ್ನಾಟಕ ಮಾತೆ.

PS: Pradeep has a good post and is going to follow up with a post each day about Karnataka/Kannada. Am excited. Already has a good post on Yakshagana. Keep hooked :)

“Kannada Rajyothsava”

Thanks for the encouraging words ;)
I have been a lurker even after having a blog for more than two years.

The idea of writing about Kannada/karnataka excites me very much. After all this is my people and my land :)

I strongly believe that the quality of public discourse(including blogs) in kannada/ regarding kannada needs to see a revolution.

This starts with us, kannadigas writing.

The culture of a people is best captured in the words of its people and their actions. Not every verse is 'gadugina bharatha', but we need to engage in the conversation. Let us not be too modest about ourselves now.

Happy writing :)

I heard a song from vishnuvardhan starrer Swabhimana – nanna haaDu nannadu.
I remember swabhimana with some melancholy. It was a different movie.

Sorry, I'm getting carried away here. I'll leave the reviews to you :D


Thanks for the suggestion and compliment.
As you know my situation – being outside Karnataka, without personal computer, I can not do regular watching/blogging…good suggestion but…someday I will do that happily …

As you already know, I review every Kannada movie/nataka I watch…

Gaurav has translated Phu La Deshpande’s marathi essay “Mumbaikar, Punekar ..”. Makes an interesting and fun read. I loved these parts and I kept on nodding “Yes yes..I know people like this…”

Firstly, do not nurse the notion that you are inferior to anyone in any aspect of life. You are not. You are a superior […]

First Sachin was discontinued from Airtel endorsement.

in 2004 when Airtel had signed on Tendulkar, the telecom service provider had said that Airtel and Sachin shared the same brand values…both were about being reliable, trustworthy and leaders in their respective fields. ToI promptly followed up how it was about ‘hot selling icons’ and all.
And just 2 […]
