ಎಲೆಲ್ಲು ಪಸರಿಸಲಿ ‘ಈ-ಕವಿ’ ಕನ್ನಡ ಕಂಪನದಂತೆ
ಮಾತೃ ಭಾಷೆಯಾವುದು? ಎಂದರೆ ಕನ್ನಡ ಕನ್ನಡ ಎಂಬಂತೆ
ಸುತ್ತಲು ಹರಡಲಿ ಮಲ್ಲಿಗೆ ಕಂಪಿನಂತೆ
ಕನ್ನಡ ಮಾತೆಯಾ ಆಶೀರ್ವಾದವಿರಲಿ ಎಂದು ಆ ತಾಯಿಯಲ್ಲಿ ನಮ್ರತೆಯಿಂದ ಬೇಡುವೆ.

ವಿದ್ಯಾವಂತ ನಾಗರೀಕರು ಜಾಗೃತಿ ಆಗೋ ಕಾಲ ಬಂದಿದೆ..|
 
ಆಡಳಿತದಲ್ಲಿ ಕನ್ನಡ ಹೋರಾಟ :
ಕರ್ನಾಟಕ ಸರ್ಕಾರ ದಲ್ಲಿ, ಕನ್ನಡ ಆಡಳಿತ ದಲ್ಲಿ ಕಡ್ಡಾಯ ವಾಗ ಬೇಕಾದರೆ, ಕನ್ನಡ ತಂತ್ರಾಂಶ ಸರಿಪಡಿಸಬೇಕು.
ಕನ್ನಡಿಗರಿಗೆ ಇದೆ ಮೊದಲನೆಯ ಕೆಲಸ. ಕನ್ನಡಿಗರಿಂದ ಕನ್ನಡಕ್ಕೆ ಅನ್ಯಾಯ
ಕನ್ನಡ ಗಣಕ ತಂತ್ರಾಂಶ ಅಭಿವೃದ್ಧಿಯ ವಿಚಾರವನ್ನುಕೈಗೆತ್ತಿಕೊಂಡಿದ್ದು,
ಅದು ಅತ್ಯಂತ ಉಪಯುಕ್ತ ಮತ್ತು ಫಲಕಾರಕ ರೀತಿಯಲ್ಲಿ ಹೊರಬರುವಂತೆ ಮಾಡಲು ಪ್ರಯತ್ನಿಸುತ್ತಿದೆ.
ಕನ್ನಡ ಆಡಳಿತ ಭಾಷೆ ಆಗಬೇಕಾದರೆ ಕನ್ನಡ ತಂತ್ರಾಂಶ ಅಭಿವೃದ್ದಿ ಆಗಬೇಕು ಕರ್ನಾಟಕ ಸರಕಾರದಲ್ಲಿ.

ಡಾಕ್ಟರ್ ಸರೋಜಿನಿ ಮಹಿಷಿ ವರದಿ :
ಡಾಕ್ಟರ್ ಸರೋಜಿನಿ ಮಹಿಷಿ ವರದಿ ಯನ್ನು ಕರ್ನಾಟಕ ಸರ್ಕಾರ ಅಳವಡಿಸಿಲ್ಲ . ಯಾಕೆ?
ಅಳವಡಿಸಿದ್ದರೆ ಕನ್ನಡಿಗರಿಗೆ ಬಹಳ ಉಪಯೋಗ ಆಗುತ್ತಿತ್ತು.
ಮಹಿಷಿ ವರದಿಯನ್ನು ಅಳವಡಿಸಿದೆ ಕರ್ನಾಟಕ ಸರ್ಕಾರ ಕನ್ನಡಿಗರಿಗೆ ಅನ್ಯಾಯ ಮಾಡಿದೆ.
ಮಹಿಷಿ ವರದಿಯನ್ನು ಸರಿಯಾಗಿ ಅಳವಡಿಸಿದ್ದರೆ ಕನ್ನಡಿಗರಿಗೆ ಎಲ್ಲ ಕಂಪೆನಿಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ೭೦ % ಕೆಲಸ ಸಿಗುತ್ತಿತ್ತು.
ಇದೆ ಕನ್ನಡಿಗರಿಗೆ ಮಾಡಿದ ಅನ್ಯಾಯ.

ಡಾಕ್ಟರ್ ನಂಜುಂಡಪ್ಪ ವರದಿ
ಡಾಕ್ಟರ್ ನಂಜುಂಡಪ್ಪ ವರದಿ ಯನ್ನು ಕರ್ನಾಟಕ ಸರ್ಕಾರ ಸರಿಯಾಗಿ ಅಳವಡಿಸಿಲ್ಲ. ಯಾಕೆ? ಯಾರು ಇದಕ್ಕೆ ಕಾರಣ?
ನಂಜುಂಡಪ್ಪ ವರದಿಯನ್ನು ಅಳವಡಿಸಿದೆ ಕರ್ನಾಟಕ ಸರ್ಕಾರ, ಉತ್ತರ ಕರ್ನಾಟಕಕ್ಕೆ ಮತ್ತು ಉತ್ತರ ಕರ್ನಾಟಕ ಕನ್ನಡಿಗರಿಗೆ ಅನ್ಯಾಯ ಮಾಡಿದೆ.
ನಂಜುಂಡಪ್ಪ ವರದಿಯನ್ನು ಸರಿಯಾಗಿ ಅಳವಡಿಸಿದ್ದರೆ ಉತ್ತರ ಕರ್ನಾಟಕ ಅಬಿವ್ರುದ್ದಿ ಯಾಗುತ್ತಿತ್ತು.

Mallinathapura’s Thatte Habba

Mallinathapura’s Thatte Habba

Swing in action
 
 
 
Mallinathapuras Thatte Habba, in which all the three major communities of the village participate, is a unique festival spanning several months. R S Ranjeetha Urs gives a first hand account of this distinct celebration.
 

“My soul lies with the Gods here, only my physical being is in my hamlet. My Gods, Lord Basaveshvara and Shilanthavva, will uplift us all. They are great levellers,” says Thyagamani of S Doddapura, a small hamlet adjacent to Mallinathapura village of Malavalli taluk in Mandya district.


Thyagamani’s piety is understandable as she is speaking just after the end of Mallinathapura’ s Thatte Habba, the village festival, celebrated once in two years to worship Lord Basaveshvara and Shilanthavva. Ten families of S Doddapura, including that of Thyagamani’s, are vokkalus (devotees) of Mallinathapura’ s Basaveshvara and Shilanthavva.


What sets apart Thatte Habba, also known as Dodda Habba, from the region’s scores of other festivals is the swing, its greatest attraction.


Thattes are actually nearly 50-feet high arecanut palms erected at the four corners of a square-like space at the village entrance. A rope made of buffalo skin, known as mili, is suspended in the middle of the enclosure and to this is notched up a wooden plank seven feet above the ground.


In order to swing, one has to first squat on the wooden plank and then somebody has to give the plank a shove. The individual on the plank stands up as the swing reaches one end of the space, then squats as it reaches the centre, only to rise again as it reaches the other end, lending momentum. A truly exhilarating experience!


The four thattes are more than mere totems of the kinship binding Mallinathapura’ s three major castes: the Urs community, Kurubas and Dalits. The first two are provided by Dodattis and Chikkattis, the Urs sub-groups, the third by Kurubas and the fourth by Dalits.


Kenchegowda, a Kuruba, explained that like every year, this year too all the Kurubas had pooled in their resources to get the arecanut palm. Though residents of neighbouring Kanikalli hamlet, the deities of the Kurubas — Kalyana Basaveshvara, Shilanthavva and Mugamashnamma — are in Mallinathapura.


Thatte Habba’s division of labour is emphatic. As Kenchegowda said, his people play the thamate and dance to its rhythm. “Our job cannot be done by them and we can’t perform their roles,” he observed. Even if one community refuses to participate, the habba won’t take off, he added.


For Mahadevaiah, a Dalit, the festival is an occasion to commune with his kith and kin and offer his prayers to gramadevathe for a bountiful harvest.


There were signs of trouble at this year’s festival. For the first time ever, police were present to ward off any untoward incident.


The new development could either be for good or worse. But it was an indication that the festival is no more the same, Puttaraje Urs, a resident of the village, said.


Once, owing to some misunderstanding between the communities, the festival was not observed for eight years, said M K Kantharaje Urs, another resident of the village.


Thatte Habba begins in the aftermath of Deepavali, when scores from Mallinathapura and its hamlets go on a pilgrimage to Male Mahadeshvara Hills.


After the pilgrimage, nine Dalits and one Kuruba representative approach Urs community leaders to put forward the festival proposal. A formal “yes” sets off Thatte Habba, spanning several months, explained Nanjaraje Urs, a localite.
On an auspicious Tuesday, a Dalit beats the drum to herald the festival. A week later, every village household contributes logs of wood that are chopped the same night. The cut wood is piled up in the shape of a top in front of Shilanthavva temple, at the village entrance.


The temple priest then offers prayers, circumambulates the wood formation and lights it on the north-eastern side, the direction believed to be inhabited by Basaveshvara and his two sisters, Mugamashnamma and Honnahuthamma.
Three days after the wood formation is reduced to ashes, which is called karkulu, the villagers splash water on the spot and it is ready for kolata.


On Saturday morning, the villagers gather here and worship their cattle to the accompaniment of kombu, kahale, thamate, nipiri and others.


The villagers and the cattle then trek all the way to Markal, 12 km away, where four arecanut trees are felled with the hombale (spadix) of one of them intact.


The felled arecanut trees are tied to the nogas (yokes) of four cattle pairs which are made to run a race to Mallinathapura. The race draws thousands of people and by dusk the caravan arrives at Mallinathapura.


Over the next few days, the four areca palms are erected before the Shilanthavva temple and the stage is set for the most exciting part of the festival: the swing. Two Urs children, a boy and a girl, take the first turn on the swing. The two are taken in a procession to the swing, which they mount and play, throwing open the swing for the rest.


Thatte Habba reaches its climactic phase on a Monday after Shivarathri with the observation of Para. This year, it was on March 5. At Para, a mass dinner is arranged under a banyan tree in the temple premises, where there is no bar on any caste or community. Dalits, in fact, break their day-long fast with the Para dinner.


After the dinner, the idol of Basaveshwara is carried in a procession in a kurju, a triangular shaped wooden structure all spruced up with flowers, bright hued fabrics, beads and other pieces of bric-a-brac. Through the procession, traditional folk dances like kolata are performed.


Children, youth and the old alike let their hair down to the scintillating beats of the thamate.
The following day, Kurubas worship Mugamashnamma and Honnahuthamma. That night the kurju procession is again taken out, with the two deities accompanying it.


A five-headed torch illuminating the path is literally the day’s highlight. On Wednesday, it is time for more merriment with okali (splashing of colours).


Once Ugadi is over, another kurju procession brings the festival to an end. The thattes are then removed and returned to the four groups.


Looking back


Legend has it that a Jain muni, Mallinatha, founded this village and hence the name Mallinathapura.


About 10 km from the Malavalli town of Mandya district and 29 miles east of Mysore, Mallinathapura is at the intersection of the Mysore-Kanakapura and Maddur–Shivanasamudr am roads.


According to an inscription dating back to 1685, to the time of Chikka Devaraja Wodeyar, Malavalli was a large fort built of mud and stone, which is now in ruins. In the fort area, there is an old Hoysala temple dedicated to Sarangapani, whose 5-feet high image in ‘samabhanga’ posture is well worked.


Haidar Ali gave Malavalli as a jagir to his son Tippu and it enjoyed considerable prosperity. About two miles from the town and close to the new Mysore road stands the scene of a historic battle, fought between the British army under General Harris and Tippu Sultan, during the former’s march on Srirangapatnam. After the action, Tippu is believed to have destroyed Malavalli to prevent it from being of any use to the British.

History of Karnataka

History of Karnataka

History of Karnataka – written in Kannada- RECENTLY WRITTEN
http://picasaweb.google.com/vmkumaraswamy/HistoryOfKarnataka?authkey=D0hjseNSVwk

A Pre-historic Brief:
The pre-historic culture of Karnataka, the hand-axe culture, compares favourable with the one that existed in Africa and is quite distinct from the pre-historic culture of North India. The early inhabitants of Karnataka knew the use of iron far earlier than the North, and iron weapons, dating back to 1200 B.C have found at Hallur in Dhaward district.Early rulers:
The early rulers of Karnataka were predominantly from North India. Parts of Karnataka were subject to the rule of the Nandas and the Mauryas.

The Shathavahanas (30 B.C to 230 A.D of paithan) ruled over extensive areas in Northern Karnataka. Karnataka fell into the hands of the Pallavas of Kanchi. Pallavas domination was ended by indigenous dynasties, the Kadambas of Banavasi and the Gangas of Kolar, who divided Karnataka between themselves.

The Kadambas

The Kadamba Dynasty was founded by Mayurasharman in c. 345 A.D. Subjected to some kind of humiliation at the Pallava capital, this young brahmin gave up his hereditary priestly vacation and took to the life of a warrior and revolted aganist the Pallavas. The Pallavas were forced to recognise him as a sovereign when he crowned himself at Banavasi in Uttar Kannada Dt. One of his successors, Kakustha Varman (c. 435-55) was such a powerful ruler that even the Vakatakas and the guptas cultivated martial relationship with this family during his time. The great poet Kalidasa deems to have visited his court.

The Gangas

The Gangas started their rule from c. 350 from Kolara and later their capital was shifted to Talakadu (Mysore Dt.). Till the advent of the Badami Chalukyas, they were almost a sovereign power. Later they continued to rule ove Gangavadi (which comprised major parts of South Karnataka) till the close of the 10th century as subordinates of the Badami Chalukyas and the Rastrakutas.

The Badami Chalukyas

It is the Chalukyas of Badami who brought the whole of Karnataka under a single rule. They are also remembered for their contributions in the feild of art. Their monuments are found at Badami, Aihole and Pattadakal. The first great prince of the dynasty was Pulikeshin I (c. 540-66 A.D) who built the ashwamedha (horse sacrifice) after subduing many rulers including the Kadambas.

His grandson, Pulikeshin II (609-42) built a vast empire which extended from Narmada in the north to the Cauveri in the south. In the east, he overthrew the Vishnukundins and appointed his younger brother Vishnuvardhana, the voceroy of Vengi.

The Chalukyan empire included not only the whole of karnataka and Maharashtra, but the greater part of Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and Andra, and also parts of Orissa and Tamilnadu. Vikramaditya II (693-734) in the line defeated the Pallavas, entered the Pallava capital Kanchi victorious. The Chalukyan power was weakened in the long run by its wars with the Pallavas.

The Rastrakutas

In 753, Danthidurga, the Rastrakuta feudatory of the Chalukyas, overthrew the Chalukya king Keerthivarman II, and his family inherited the fortunes of the Chalukyas. The engraving of the celebrated monolithic Kailas temple at Ellora (now in Maharshtra) is attribuited to Danthidurga’s uncle, Krishna I (756-74). Krishna’s son, Dhruva (780-93) crossed the Narmada, and after defeating celebrated princes like Vathsaraja (of the Gurjara Pratheehara family of central India) and Dharmapala of Bengal, extracted tribute from the ruler of Kanauji, ‘the seat of India’s paramountry’. His son Givinda III (793-814) also repeated the feast when he defeated Nagabhata II, the Gujara Pratheehara and Dharmapala of Bengal and again extracted tribute from the King of Kanauj.The achievements of the Chalukyas of Badami and the Rastrakutas by defeating the rulers of Kanauj have made their erathe “Age of Imperial Karnataka”.

The Kalyana Chalukyas

The Chalukyas of Kalyana overthrew the Rastrakutas in 973, Someshwara I (10432068), succeeded in resisting the efforts of the Cholas to subdue Karnataka, and he built a new capital, Kalyana (mordern Basava Kaluyana in Bidar Dt.) The Chola king Rajadhiraja was killed by him at Koppar in 1054.

His son Vikramaditya VI (10762127) has been celebrated in history as the patron of the great jurist Vijnaneshwara, (work: mitakshara, standard work on Hindu law), and the emperor has been immortalised by poet Dilhana (haling from Kashmir) who chose this prince himself as the hero for his sanskrit poem, Vikramankadeva Charitam. Vikramaditya defeated the Paramaras of Centeral India thrice. In the South he captured Kanchi from the Cholas in 1085, and in the East, he conqured Vengi in 1093. His commander, Mahadeva built the Mahadeva temple at Itagi (Raichur Dt.) the finest Chalukyan monument. His son Someshwara III (1127-39) was a great scholar. He has written Manasollasa, a sanskrit encyclopedia and Vikrmankabhyudayam, a peom of which his father is the hero,

The Sevunas

The Sevunas (or Yadavas) who were foundatories of the Rastrakutas and the chalukyas of Kalyana, became a sovereign power from the days of Bhillama V (1173-92) who founded the new capital Devagiri (modern Daulathabad in Maharastra). Bhillama V captured Kalyana in 1186, and later clashed with Hoysala Ballala II at Sorarturu in 1190. Though he lost the battle.He built a vast kingdom, extending from the Narmada to the Krishna. His son Jaitugi (1192-99) not only defeated Parmara Subhata varma, but also killed the Kakatiya kings of Orangal, Rudra and Mahadeva.

Singhana II (11992247), the greatest of the Sevunas, extended the Sevuna kingdom upto the Tungabhadra. But the Servunas were defeated by the army of the Delhi Sultan in 1296, and again in 1307 and finally in 1318, and thus the kingdom was wiped out. The Sevunas have become in immortal in history by the writings of the mathematician Baskarasharya, of the great writer on music, Sharngadeva, and of the celebrated scholar Hemadri.

The Hoysalas

The Hoyasala continued the great traditions of their art-loving overlords the Kalyana Chalukyas, and their fine temples are found at Beluru, Helebidu and Somanathapura. Vishnuvardhana (11082141) freed Gangavadi from the Cholas (who had held it from 999), and in commemoration of his victory, built the celebrated Vijayanarayana (Chennakeshva) Temple at Belur.

His commander Katamalla built the famous Hoysaleshwara temple at Halebidu.

Though Vishnuvardhana did not succeed in his serious effort to overthrow the Chalukyan yoke, his grandson Balla II (11732220) not only became free, but even defeated Sevuna Bhillama V at Soraturu in 1190, after having defeated Chalukyas Someshwara IV in 1187. When the Cholas were attacted by the Pandyas in Tamilnadu, Balla II drove the Pandyas back and thus assumed the title “Establisher of the Chola Kingdom”. Later, in the days of his son Narasimha II (1120-35), Hoysalas even secured a foothold in Tamilnadu and Kuppam, near Srirangam became a second capital of the Hoysalas.

Ballala III (12912343), the last Hoysala, had to struggle hard to hold his own against the invasion of the Delhi Sultan. He died fighting the Sultan of Madhurai. It was his commanders, Harihara and Bukka, who founded the Vijayanagra Kingdom, which later grew to be an empire. Hoyasala age saw great kannada poets like Rudrabhatta, Janna, Harihara and Raghavanka. Hoysala temples at Beluru, Halebidu, Somanathapur, Arasikere, Amritapura etc., are wonderful works of art.

Vijayanagara Empire

When the armies of the Delhi Sultanate destroyed the four great kingdom of the south (the Sevunas, Kakatiyas of Orangal, Hoysalas and of the Pandyas of Madhurai) it looked as if a political power following a religion quite alien to the South was going to dominate the peninsula. Many princes including heroic Kumara Rama, a fudatory from Kamapila in Bellary dist. perished while resisting the onslaughts. When the Vijayanagara Kingdom was founded by the Sangama brothers, people wholeheartedly supported them. Tradition says that sage Vidyaranya had caused a shower of gold to finance the Sangama brothers. Perphaps the sage succeeded in securing financial help from various quarters for the founders of Vijayanagara . Harisha founded the kingdom in about 1336, and he secured control over northern parts of Karnataka and Andhra iron coasts. After the death of Ballala III (1343) and his son Virupaksha Ballala (in 1346), the whole of the Hoysala dominion came under his control. His brother Bukka (1356-77) succeeded in destroying the Madhurai Sultanate. It is this prince who sponsored the writing of the monumental commentary on the vedas: Vedarthaprakasha; the work was completed in the days of his son Harihara II (13772404)

Krishnadevaraya (15092529) was the greatest emperor during his time. He was also a great warrior, scholar and administrator. He secured Raichur Doab in 1512, and later marched victorious into the capitals of his enemies like Bidar (1512) Bijapur (1523) and in the East, Cuttack (1518), the capital of the Gajapatis. His rule saw the reign of peace and prosperity.

In the days of Aravidu Ramaraya (1542-65), Krishnadevaraya’s son-in-law, the four Shashi Sultans attacked the empire, and after killing Ramarya at Rallasathangadi (Rakkasagi-Tangadagi) in 1565, destroyed the capital Vijayanagara.

The Last Rulers:
With the weakening of the Mughul power in the North, the Marathas came to have control over the northern districts of Karnataka. Haidar Ali, Who used power from the Wodeyars of Mysore, merged the Keladi Kingdom in Mysore in 1763. Karnataka came under British rule after the overthrow of Tipu, Haidar’s son in 1799 and the Marathas in 1818 (When the Peshwa was defeated). After having been subjected to a number of administrations during the British rule, Karnataka became a single state in 1956.

History of Karnataka

History of Karnataka

Hoysaleshwara Temple, Karnataka Travel AgentsKarnataka, called as Karunadu (elevated land) in ancient times. The course of Karnataka’s history and culture takes us back to pre-historic times. The earliest find of the stone age period in India was a hand axe at Lingasugur in Raichur district. The Ashoka’s rock edicts found in the state indicate that major parts of Northern Karnataka were under the Mauryas. Chandragupta Maurya, the great Indian emperor abdicated the throne and embraced Jainism at Shravanabelagola. Adding new dimensions to the cultural and spiritual ethos of the land, many great dynasties left their imprint upon the aesthetic development of Karnataka’s art forms. Prominent among them were the Chalukyas, the Hoysalas and the mighty Vijayanagara Empire. The Chalukyan’s built some of the very early Hindu temples in India.

History of Karnataka

In ancient times, Karnataka was called Karunadu, literally meaning elevated land.

¤ The Early Karnataka

The evidence of Maurayan dynasty in Karnataka is the Ashoka’s rock edicts found in the state. The great Chandragupta Maurya ruled the state and adopted Jainism at Shravanabelagola. After him many other dynasties like the Chalukyas, the Hoysalas and the Vijayanagars ruled it. These dynasties added value to the cultural and spiritual value of the state.

karnatakaAt Aihole in Karanataka, the Chalukyas constructed the early Hindu temples in India. These temples are regarded as the architectural wonders. Similarly, the Hoysala’s who ruled from the 11th to the 13th century, built more than 150 temples having excellent architecture.

¤ Karnataka Under Vijayanagar Empire

The most celebrated dynasty that ruled Karnataka is the Vijayanagar dynasty. The Vijyanagar kings were the greatest of all medieval Hindu empires and were lovers of fine arts. They have contributed a lot to the culture and traditions of the state. Many foreign visitors who came to this place during this period have described it as one of the most prosperous states.

¤ The Fall of Vijayanagar Empire

The grand Vijayanagar dynasty disintegrated with its capital at Hampi after the attack of the Deccan Sultan in 1565 A.D. Therefore, Bijapur was established as the capital and many monuments were build around the city. It was ruled by the Bahmani Shahis and the Adilshahis, who have contributed a lot to the architecture, art and the spread of Islam in the state.

¤ The Muslim Domination and The British Control

Later, the state was ruled by Hyder Ali and his brave son Tipu Sultan. They were responsible for the expansion of the Mysore kingdom. Tipu was a great scholar and lover of literature. He was a good administrator and offered expensive gifts to the Hindu temples. Tipu Sultan was also known as “Tiger of Karnataka”, since he fought bravely with the British and never allowed them to overpower Mysore . He was killed in 1799 A.D. and thus the throne of Mysore went into the hands of Wodeyar’s. In the beginning of the 19th century, entire Karnataka came under the control of the British.

¤ Karnataka Post-Independence

After India’s Independence, the state of Mysore was governed by the Maharaja of Mysore, who was appointed by Independent India. But later, on November 1, 1973, the integrated state was renamed as Karnataka.

Aluru Venkata Rao

Aluru Venkata Rao(12th July 1880 – 25th Feb 1964) was one of the most eminent leaders of the the Karnataka Ekikarana movement. He had a very strong impact on the Ekikarana movement which was fighting for a separate state encompassing all Kannada speaking areas of Mysore, Bombay Presidency and Nizam’s Hyderabad. Even though the first strains of this movement had started as early as in 1856 and the Karnataka Vidyavardhaka Sangha had been established in 1890, the movement took a dramatic turn with the arrival of Aluru Venkata Rao on the scene. The single most important event that spurred the movement into a frenzy was the publishing of Aluru’s magnum opus, Karnataka Gatha Vaibhava in 1912. Such was the impact of his work on the masses that he came to be known as the Kannada Kula Purohita or the ‘High priest of the Kannada kula(family) ‘

Karnataka Gatha Vaibhava

Karnataka Gatha Vaibhava literally means The glory that was Karnataka!. It was a book that recounted in great detail the glorious history that had been Karnataka’s until the Marathas, Nizam and the British took over. The book created tremendous impact on the young and old alike. The movement soon caught the imagination of the public and people started rallying around the Ekikarana movement and the movement picked up momentum.

Alur Venkata Rao remembered

dharwad: “what lokamanya tilak did for maharashtra, alur venkata rao did for karnataka,” stated former chairman of karnataka sahitya academy giraddi govindraj. speaking at the 38th death anniversary of alur venkata rao at sadhanakeri in dharwad, he said the contributions of venkat rao to the unification of karnataka were remarkable. his vision and mission resulted in unification of karnataka besides in the rise of karnataka sahitya parishat and karnataka vidyavardhaka sangha. he called upon younger generation to emulate the ideals of alur. writer b.r. wadappi presided. dr shrinivas ritti also spoke.

Alur Venkat Rao (1880 – 1964)

Alur Venkata Rao (a.k.a Alur Venkatrao) is referred to as Karnatakakulapurohita or the high-priest of Karnataka Community. He is singularly responsible for creating awareness among the people about Karnataka’s greatness in the political and cultural field in the past. It is worthwhile to have a glance of sociopolitical scene of Karnataka when Aulr Venkat Rao was born in late 19th century.

At the time the land of Kannadigas was divided into five parts.

  1. Maharaja’s Mysore province of 9 districts formed strong and single political entity.

  2. Two districts of Bellary and South Kanara came under Madras Presidency.

  3. Three districts of Bidar, Gulburga and Raichur came under Nizam of Hyderabad’s dominion.

  4. Coorg or Kodagu formed different centrally administered district.

  5. The four districts of Dharwad, North Kanara, Bijapur and Belgaum formed part of Bombay Presidency, usually identified as North Karnataka.

This North Karnaka was referred to as `Southern Maratha Country’ when Alur Venkat Rao was born. So great was the Marathi influence in this area that the youngsters attended Marthi High Schools, and for higher or college education they had to proceed to Pune. Kannada remained a spoken language and at the most, medium of instruction at primary level in villages and towns. Mr. Venkat Rao was born in Bijapur in 1880 in a well-to-do family of landlords. His father Bhim Rao was a Shirastedar. Shirastedar was an important Accounts Official at the Taluka level under British rule. Bhim Rao and Venkat Rao’s mother Bhagirathibai were of pious and charitable nature. There were students of Varanna (weekly free food) the year round, besides relatives who stayed with them for schooling and other facilities in the big Alur household. Alur Venkat Rao attended primary school in different small towns where his father was transferred and he passed Matriculation examination (school graduation) from Dharwar in 1897. He had acquired good fluency in Marathi, Sanskrit and English by then. But his firist love was Kannada. He sadly remembers that there were no good books, journals or periodicals in Kannada at that time. He attended Fergusson College in Pune and completed his B.A. and L.L.B. (law) degrees by 1905. His student years in Pune were memorable. The country was witnessing early nationalism in different forms and phases. Lokamanya Tilak was the prominent leader who shaped young minds, by arranging Shivaji Utsav and Ganapati Utsav and establishing national schools. Veer Savarkar and Senapati Bapat were Alur’s contemporaries in college. Partition of Bengal as envisaged by the Vice Roy Lord Curzon had led to a ‘nation wide’ agitation. It kindled latent nationalism among educated youngsters in several ways. Alur returned to Dharwad determined to serve the country, in the ways that suited him He stared as a pleader, one of the most coveted posts in those days which brought name and fame with minimum work according to him. But soon call of mother Karnataka snatched him away from all material attractions.

Karanatakatva mission of his life

A chance visit to Anegundi and vast ruins of Hampi provided Alur a clear vision about his future course of action. The greatness of Vijayanagara empire and glory of Kannada valour which spread beyond Maharashtra in earlier age, prompted him to awaken Kannada people of his region, who were still wollowing in the ‘hangover’ of Peshwai Maratha rule.

Whereas Bengalis could not tolerate one division of their motherland, how could Kannadigas afford to be so apathetic to their mother land being divided into five zones? This was the painful reflection of young Alur. He decided to write a book that could awaken his sleepy people. ‘Karnataka Gatavaibhava’ was the result. It is a master piece bringing out contribution of all Karnataka dynasties enriching Indian culture by conquests, constructing great temples and monuments promoting trade and commerce, encouraging learning, promoting literature etc. It took 13 years to collect material from inscriptions, coins, and old manuscripts to write this book which created history.

His ‘Karnataka Gatavaibhava’ (Past glory of Karnataka) completes ninety years (1917), this year (2007).

Alur continued writing books, editing journals establishing schools, founding research centres and libraries, touring most of the time and giving lectures. He met like-minded people scattered in all the five areas specified earlier. In between he was imprisoned and his license to practice as pleader was cancelled. This made Alur devote himself completely for unification of Karnataka.

Finally Alur Venkata Rao succeeded. Fifty years of his mission bore fruit. Kannada speaking land became one under the name of Mysore State (1956). It took another 18 years to have its rightful name of Karnataka (1974). It only shows how many hurdles Alur had to cross in olden days of British rule, when only change in rightful name took nearly two decades in Independent India!

Alur wrote twelve books and eight booklets. He encouraged N.S. Rajpurohit, D.R. Bendre, Shantakavi, Pandit Taranath, Hardekar Manjappa etc., all stalwarts in their fields, to write. He himself published their early books and distributed them.

He was an active member in all literary activities outside North Karnataka. He mobilized funds and popular support in founding Kannada Sahitya Parishat, the august the literary body in 1915. He was vice president and real force behind Vijayanagara sixth-centenary celebrations in Hampi when all living great South Indian historians, researchers, archeologists and writers were brought on a single platform in 1936.

He was elected as the President of 16th all Karnataka literary meet, “Sahitya Sammelan”held in Mysore 1930. He spent his last years of life writing books on Madhwa philosophy and Bhagavadgita for commoners leading a sage’s life. He died in 1964.

Dharwad city is full of memorials, in founding of which Alur had a hand. Karnatak College and University, Shantesha library and Vidyavadhak Sangh. Itihasa Samsodhak Mandal, and Sadhankeri, which he himself named and lived in.

Alur’s Nanna Jeevana Smritigulu (“Memories of my life”) was serialized many years ago in “Jayakarnataka” monthly which he had started and later handed over to others. Late G.B. Joshi, doyen among Indian publishers, brought them in a book form in 1974 when Mysore state became Karnataka. It is a tribute and fulfillment to Alur’s efforts of half a century. The book contains many poignant memories of men and incidents of freedom struggle, and Alur’s unique role in making the struggle for Karnatakakatva, as part of National movement.

ABBAKKA RANI : THE UNSUNG WARRIOR QUEEN

ABBAKKA RANI : THE UNSUNG WARRIOR QUEEN

 

“Abbakka rode the horse stately and worked deep into the night dispensing justice. She is the last known person to have Agnivana (fire arrow).”

 

The Arabian Sea water that splashes the shores of Ullal near Mangalore in Karnataka could tell you the story of Abbakka Rani, locally known as Abbakka Mahadevi. Such is her personality in the region that she has become a folk legend. Abbakka Rani is one of the earliest freedom fighters of India who resisted the Portuguese.The regions where Abbakka was queen is known as Tulunadu. Rani Abbakka was queen is known as Tulunadu. Rani Abbakka, though a Queen of a little known small princely state, Ullal, was magnetic woman of indomitable courage and patriotism. While Rani Jhansi has become a symbol of courage, Abbakka, nearly 300 years her predecessor, has been largely forgotten by history. Her furious wars with Portuguese are not well recorded. But whatever is available speaks of a luminous personality of awesome valour and bravery.Sources, such as archival records, travelogues of several Portuguese travelers and historical analysis confirm that there were three Abbakkas: mother and two daughters, who fought against the Portuguese Army between 1530 and 1599.

Though it is the second daughter who was the most courageous, the folklore treats all three Abbakkas as one great Queen and a brilliant personality Abbakka Mahadevi or Rani Abbakka. In this article also she is being treated as a single character – Abbakka Rani.

Ullal fort, the capital of Abbakka’s kingdom, is located just a few kilometers away from the city of Mangalore, on the shores of the Arabian Sea. It is a historical as well as a pilgrim spot because of the beautiful Shiva Temple built by the Queen and a unique natural rock, called the Rudra Rock. The rock appears to change colours every second, as the sweater splashes on it.

According to local legends. Abbakka was an extraordinary child and as she grew up showed signs of being a visionary. there was no equal to her in military science and warfare, mainly in archery and sword fighting. Her father encouraged her in this and after she was well versed in all areas, she was married to a neighbouring local king of Bangher. The marriage did no last long with Abbakka breaking the ties by returning the jewels given by his to her. The husband thus nurtured revenge against Abbakka and later on joined the Portuguese in a treaty, to fight Abbakka.

The Portuguese had made several attempts to capture Ullal, strategically placed. But Abbakka had repulsed each of their attack with sheer courage and ingenuity. The queen’s story is retold from generation to generation through folk songs and yakshagana, the popular folk theatre, In bootaradhana, (which literally means appeasing the possessed, a local ritual dance) the personal in trance narrates the great deeds of Abbakka Mahadevi. Abbakka, dark and good looking, always dressed in simple clothes like a common village woman. She rode the horse stately and worked deep into the night dispensing justice.

According to the folklore, Abbakka is the last known person to have the Agnivana (fire-arrow) in her fight against the Portuguese. Though Abbakka was a Jain by faith her administration was well represented by Hindus and Muslims. Her army too consisted of people from all sects and caste including Moggaveeras, a fisher folk community. The first attack by the Portuguese in south Kanara coast was in 1525, when they destroyed the Mangalore port. Rani Abbakka was alerted by the incident and started preparing herself to protect her kingdom. In 1555, the Portuguese sent Admiral Don Alvaro da Silvereira against the Queen of Ullal Abbakka Devi Chowta who had refused to pay them the tribute. She fought with courage and intelligence and pushed them back.

In 1558 the Portuguese Army perpetrated another wanton cruelty on Mangalore, putting to death a number of men and women, both young and old, plundering a temple, burning ships and finally setting the city itself on fire.Again, in 1567, the Portuguese army attacked Ullal, showering death and destruction. The great Queen Abbakka Devi Chowta (Bucadevi I) resisted it.The same year one general Joao Peixoto was sent by the Portuguese Viceroy Antony Norohna with a fleet of soldiers. He captured the city of Ullal and also entered the royal court. However the Queen escaped and took asylum in a mosque. The same night, she counter-attacked the Portuguese army, with a help of 200 of her soldiers and killed General Peixoto and 70 Portuguese soldiers.The invaders were forced to flee to their ships in disgrace. The Portuguese soldiers who remained in Ullal were dead drunk, in over confidence and were dancing. Taking advantage of this opportunity, about 500 Muslim supporters of Abbakka Rani attacked the Portuguese and killed Admiral Mascarenhas along with the help six thousand Muslim soldiers in 1568, and the foreign army had to leave the Mangalore fort.

In 1569, the Portuguese Army not only regained the Mangalore Fort but also captured Kundapur (Basrur). Abbakka Rani was a source of threat to the Portuguese. They won the confidence of Abbakka’s estranged husband, kind of Bangher and started attacking Ulla. Abbakka Rani fought vigorously.

She formed an alliance in 1570 with Bijapur Sultan Ahmed Nagar and the Zanmorine of Calicut, who where also opposing the Portuguese. Kutty Pokar Markar, a general of the Zamorine fought on behalf of Abbakka and destroyed the Portuguese fort at Mangalore but while returning he was killed by the Portuguese.

Abbakka lost the war as her husband assisted the Portuguese by revealing to them her strategies of warfare, which he was familiar with. She was arrested and jailed. However, the warrior that she was, she was, she revolted in the prison and died as a soldier – fighting.

Though Abbakka has been admired and worshipped in the local folk forms, it is very recently there there have been efforts to honour her memory.

As a result of these efforts the Karnatka Government has erected a statue of the Queen in the city of Bangalore. IGNCA is making a documentary on Abbakka Rani, incorporating the folk myth.

Shri Kailash Kr. Mishra is a Research Fellow, in Janpada Sampada and is involved in the documentary Project on Abbakka.

The author expresses his sincere thanks to Prof. Vasantha Madhava, Prof. Amrut Someshwar, Prof. B.A. Vivek Rai, Dr. Wahab Doddamane, Dr. Nandavar and Shri Bharatadri, for the inputs they gave on Abbakka Rani.

Queen’s role in fighting foreign aggressors recalled at utsav

 

 

 

THOKKUTTU (ULLAL): The sixth Veera Rani Abbakka Utsav began here on Sunday with a call to place Rani Abbakka on a par with other nationalist personalities.

Speaking at the inaugural session, well-known writer and Nadoja Award winner Sara Aboobackar said Rani Abbakka was not like other queens who stayed in palaces; she lived amid people and when it came to protection of the independence of her people she fought with all her might and laid down her life.

Ms. Aboobackar said Rani Abbakka was as valiant as Kittur Rani Channamma, but her history was not very well known. Two other queens who were of Rani Abbakka’s stature were Chand Bibi and Razia Sultana, she said.

President of the Dakshina Kannada district Kannada Sahitya Parishat Pradeep Kumar Kalkura regretted that the history of Rani Abbakka had not being documented in a scientific way, and the Government had neglected her role in fighting foreign aggression.

He said a statue of Rani Abbakka should be installed not just in Mangalore but also in Bangalore near the Town Hall. President of the Karnataka State Tulu Sahitya Parishat Seetharama Kulal said the Tulu Academy would set up a fund for taking up research on Rani Abbakka. Mr. Kulal said he had already spoken to the Mangalore City Corporation to name the circle outside the Deputy Commissioner’s office after Rani Abbakka.

Chairman of the Kannada Development Authority B.M. Idinabba said it was not correct to restrict Rani Abbakka’s identity to Tulu Nadu just because she ruled a part of that region. She should be recognised on a national level.

Basaveshwara

Basaveshwara

http://culturalindia.org/basavanna.asp

Twelfth century of Karnataka is noted for its socioeconomic, cultural and literary revolution. It was called a total revolution which brought in a sea-change in the life of Karnataka. A rare responsibility of leading that revolution fell on the broad and able shoulders of Basavanna. It was not an accident but opportunity, the time had offered to him. Basavanna was known for his humility coupled with introspection and self criticism. The education he had, made him rich not only in Sanskrit and Kannada literatures but also in religions. He was also gifted with a rare quality of creativity and subtle sensitivity. His studious nature with his subtle sensitivity helped him to exploit the rich treasures of both Sanskrit and Kannada literature. He was compassionate and his love of life helped his creative genius to bloom. His creative personality was sensitive to the problems of the Society. As he was destined to be a leader, his creative genius, scholarship and the social status did not make him arrogant. The compassionate heart he had made him become humble and mellowed his personality.

The social and religious conditions of the society and the agony of the oppressed people inspired his creative genius. And he waged a war against untouchability, caste system and inequalities between men and women on the basis of human values.

Like a prophet he visualised a dream of creating a new society. This vision of a new society was based on equality and human dignity. This attracted the imaginations of Mahadeva of Kashmir, Shankara Deva of Afghanisthan, Allamaprabhu of Balligave, Adayya of Sowrashtra, Siddarama of Sholapur and others. They were irresistably drawn towards this visionary of Karnataka. The discussion he had with these people related to the ways and means of probing the secrets of life and exploring the possibilities of establishing a new set of human values. It is here that the creative genius of many began to bloom.

His words were true and warm with love. They had the glow of a new dream. And the people flocked arround him to listen to his words of lore.

What was thrilling about this was that there were washermen, fishermen, cobblers, barbers, tax collectors, doctors, wood cutters, carpenters, blacksmiths, priests and others who belonged to the different stratas of society. Nowhere in the history of literature, we come across with such a rare range of men and women writing Vachanas which had given expression to their dreams of a new society. The creative atmosphere generated by Basavanna inspired even the so called common men like Machaiah, Chowdaiah, Kalavve, Satyakka, Maraiah, Sankavve, Kalakethaiah, Masanaiah, Masanamma, Mahadevi, Akkamma and others. They wrote Vachanas also apart from taking active part in the revolution. Compassionate Basavanna was blessed with simplicity and humility. His scholarship and creative abilities were astonishing. In fact it is rare to find a Vachanakara who does not respect and remember Basavanna in his/her Vachanas.

Basavanna’s achievements are multi-faceted. He is the founder of Vachana tradition which influenced the trends in Kannada literature. Kayaka Siddhanta which was cristalised under his dynamic leadership, even to this day, is a great economic theory based on ethics. The revolutionary ideas of Basavanna which inspired intercaste marriage in the 12th century itself is an idea which can help humanity in eradicating not only untouchability but also the ugly caste system.

Basavanna, Prime Minister of Emperor Bijjala of 12th Century, was a great mystic, treasurer of Lord’s love, social reformer, visionary, rationalist, socialist, advocate of non-violence, promoter of the cause of downtrodden and women, trend setter in Kannada literature, upholder of dignity of labour, and crusader against untouchability and superstition. He declared, ‘Work is bliss’. He struggled to establish a classless and casteless society based on spiritual and moral values. He endeavoured to establish democracy in religion, society and moral values. His multi-dimensional personality is unparalleled in the entire history of the world. He is the Light of the Universe.

Birth :

Basavesvara was born around the year 1131 A.D., on Vaishakha Shuddha Trutiya, the nakshatra being Rohini. Madiraja and Madalambe are the parents of Basaveshwara. They were the devotees of Nandisvara at Bagewadi. Gangambike, the daughter of Baladeva, was married to Basavesvara. Basavesvara by birth was a genuine devotee and a seeker after truth. It was in Kudala Sangama that Basavesvara’s inner self reached realization in full.

Lore of the Saiva Saints like Jedara Dasimayya, Sankara Dasimayya, Revanasiddhesvara, Sakalesa Madarasa and Kondaguli Kesiraja, Nayanars of Tamilnad seem to have impressed the mind of Basavesvara considerably. Such of the Saints as were worshipping God, without any ostentation, submitting themselves to His will, could easily appeal to Sri Basavesvara because he was a kindred soul.

Work is Worship :

Basavesvara left Kudala Sangama around the year 1152 A.D. Basavesvara first joined Bijjala’s office as a clerk. His sharp intellect very soon drew the attention of the higher officers like Soddala Bacarasa and Bhandari Siddharasa at Mangalawada.

When the senior accountants committed a grave mistake in the accounts, Basavesvara would point out the same to the great joy and surprise of Bhandari Siddarasa who took him to Bijjala and got him appointed as a clerk on a salary of 101 honnes per year.

Very soon, Bhandari position was also offered to Basavesvara as Siddharasa died without an heir, and Basavesvara was found to be the most appropriate choice.

Basavesvara became the Minister to King Bijjala in 1162. Basavesvara’s life at Kalyana since 1154 was most eventful. He wanted to establish a new religion which would elevate the people to heavenly felicity here and in this world itself.

Basava Matha :

Fundamental principles of religion, philosophy and society were discovered and the great Vachana literature took its final shape. Basavesvara was now not only a minister but a central figure and a leader of a great socio-religious movement. As a devotee of high order, as a leader of great movement, Basavesvara was in the heart of the people. The real Bhakti itself was transformed as Mukti. He also established Anubhavamantapa as a symbol of new religion which attracted saints from such far off places like Kashmir, Banaras etc.

The social revolution, however, is the hall-mark of this great movement. The cardinal principles for which Basavesvara stood were of equality, liberty and fraternity. He would never accept any hierarchy in society. To him all were equal irrespective of caste, creed, occupation etc.

Basavesvara attained union with Kudala Sangamesvara in 1167 A.D.
