  2. ಬಾಳ ಸಂದಾಕೈತ್ರಿ. ಮೆನತ್ತಿನ್ ಕೆಲ್ಸ ಮಾಡವ್ರೆ. ಒಳ್ಳೇ ಕೆಲ್ಸಮಾಡವ್ರು, ದೇಸ್ದಾಗಿದ್ರೇನು, ಪರ್ದೇಸ್ದಗಿದ್ರೇನಪ. ಯಾರ್ ಏಳಕಾತದೆ. ಒಳ್ಳೆ ಕೆಲ್ಸ ಒಳ್ಳೇದೆ ಅಲ್ಲೇನಪ. ನಾವೇನ್ ಒಟ್ಟೇಗೆ ಮಣ್ತಿಂತೀವ. ನಾವ್ ಅಂಗೆಲ್ಲಾ ಅನ್ ರುತ ಏಳೋಪೈಕಿ ಅಲ್ರಿ. ತಿಳಿತೇನ.

    -ಉಸಾರು. ಇದೇ ತರ, ಕನ್ನಡದ್ ಏಳ್ಗೆ ಮಾಡಿ. ಆ ಮಾತಾಯಿ, ಅರಸ್ತಾಳ್ರಿ. ಉ… ದಿಟ ನಾನೇಳೋದು.

  3. Every Kannadiga should be proud of The Book, Karnataka Bhagawatha. It is meticulously prepared with the help of eminent kannada scholars. This is truely a International endevour !

    Similar works should be carried out, so that all the palm leaves which are lost in the dusty, dingy corners of karnataka, and elsewhere, will see the light of the day !

  5. ಕನ್ನಡದ ತಾಯಿ ಕೆಲಸ ಮಾಡೋದು ಹೆತ್ತ ತಾಯಿ ಸೇವೆ ಮಾಡಿದಂತೆ ಸಾರಿ, ಆದರೆ ಸೇವೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ಸ್ವಾರ್ಥ ಸಲ್ಲದು, ಯಾವುದೇ ವಿದ್ಯೆ ಪಡೆದರು ಕೂಡ ಕನ್ನಡದವರೊಂದಿಗೆ ಕನ್ನಡದಲ್ಲಿಯೇ ಮಾತನಾಡಬೇಕು ಅದೇ ನಮ್ಮ ಕನ್ನಡದ ಧರ್ಮ
