V. Demand for granting classical language status to Kannada

SHRI K.B. KRISHNA MURTHY: Going by the criteria set for recognition of a language as a Classical one, Kannada rightfully qualifies for accord of a classical status. On all accounts-antiquity, ancient body of literature, original living traditions and continuity-Kannada has impeccable credentials. A well-documented case has already been made by the Government of Karnataka, in its communication to the hon. Prime Minister of India, which I commend, be subjected to critical evaluation by the Sahitya Academy. Compared to Hebrew and Chinese writing systems that claim an antiquity of three millennia, among Indian languages only ‘Tamil’ and ‘Kannada’ have a long and enduring history of writing. Therefore, I request the Government of India to accord a ‘Classical Language’ status to Kannada.
