Well-known writer B C Shailaga Nagaraj said that Kannada is our ‘nudi’, Literature, Country more importantly it is our body ,mind, soul and our life.

Kannada will remain for ever and it would develop, she added.

Respect

Speaking at a function held in Shantiniketan school as part of suvarna Karnataka celebrations, she said that students must cultivate the habbit of respecting our mother mother tongue and it’s glory from childhood.

Then one can remain as Kannadiga and save Kannada irrespective of place one lives in or job one does.

This must be the oath of every Kannada.

She also said that Kannadigas must speak Kannada.

President of the function and the founder of the school Chidambaraiah sh-ared his experiences with regard to Karnataka Ekikarana Movement.

Programmes

As part of the function school children sang Kannada songs and preformed dance on the occasion which dealt with Kannada.

We at E-Kavi, an onine forum for Kannadigas, Kananda and Karnataka from around the world want to bring a few things about Kannada through this petition. Please go through the details provided herein and kindly write back to us for any misinformation, if you so feel.
Kannada, the third oldest language in India (Please refer to the links at *1 and *2) and one of the finest languages in the world is now in tatters in her own land or origin, i.e., Karnataka. Kannada has given some of the finest literary works and philosophies to the world and our Kannada language has nurtured these treasures through ages.

Kannada having a spoken history of around 3,000 years (three thousand years) has had many ups and downs but might not have faced this kind of challenge where it is possible that our Kannada may get wiped out from Karnataka for various reasons and the lack of its usage on modern computers being the strongest reason of those. We have had some very interesting discussion as to what and who all may have contributed for this dismal state of our “Kastoori Kannada” in Karnataka.

At E-Kavi, which is strongly promoting FREE SOFTWARE (in the sense of freedom, not price – please refer to link *4) for Kannada implementation on computers hosted these discussions and has archived most of the interesting discussions that have gone through (Please refer to the link at *3).

Hello Friends
This is in continuation with the earlier mail I had
sent regarding the dismal state of Kannada in our state.  I thought
more people will add information.  We were discussing how our Kannada
language is in dying stage in our own land.  Let us continue form where
we let off.  I request more people to add more diverse information to
this posting.  What I am writing is no way a complete in itself, so it
needs a lots of other sources of information.

Kannada has seen a varying stages of constant improvements and refinements from our great
Kannadigas and also from outsiders who happen to know about the
language and once they found this touchstone of a language came to get
influenced directly by her and were fascinated to be part of our
language.  We can give many examples for this.  A close follower of
Mahatma Sri. Vinobha Bhave called Kannada "The queen of languages",
while a German Reverand Ferthenand Kittel wrote one of the finest
dictionary for Kannada which happens to be one of the finest in any
language.
Kannada has seen the greatest people invoved in the
refinement process which dates back to 3 thousand years or more (A lot
of information is yet to be digged out in this front).  Our "aadi kavi"
(First poet) Pampa started a great poetic tradition followed by many
great poets whose works are on par with the greatest works of any
literateur of the world, sometimes better for many reasons.  This was
followed by our great "Vachanakaararu" (poets who wrote in the language
of the common man and who made Kannada, the language of worship or
"anubhaava", more precisely).

The enlightenment of this era of Kannada
is mind blowing as it involved and attracted people from such far of
places like Bengal and others (It is not a simple matter that people
travelled from Bengal during the 12th century, when the only means of
quick transportation was on the backs of horses) to learn from Sri
Basaveshwara's "anubhava maMTapa".  Sri Masti Venkatesha Iyengar and
others have translated many of the works of Basava to English.  This
stage of Kannada was followed by Daasa Sahitya which gave more music
oriented compositions to Kannada, prominent of this stage were Sri.
Purandara, Sri Kanakadasa and others.

We also have unforgettable
"kumaaravyaasa".  After this the British came and got in contact with
our language and many of the Britishers have done wonderful works for
Kannada just for the love of the language and sometimes for the
missionary purpose, nevertheless did a great job of making Kannada
accessible to Kannadigas through their schools,  and other charity
works.  During the beginning of the 20th century came a genius who
brought the best works of the world and created his unparalled literary
works, that was Sri. Kuvempu.

This time (a close time to us all, so we know more about this)
also saw other great personalities for Kannada
like Sri. Bendre, Maasti, Sri, Karantha, Sri Tejaswi, Sri. Lankesh and
many many others (sorry for missing many a names all of whom are
equally important for one or the other reason).

Kuvempu especially
brought the great works and so Kannadigas could know and had access to
the greatest works of the literary giants of the world.  His other
great students like Dr. G.S. Shivarudrappa, Dr. Vrushabhendraswamy, Dr.
Prabhushankara, Dr. Lakshminarayana Bhatta, Sri. Venkatachala Sastry
and others are continuing his great work.  Dr. Shivarama Karantha, who
was a mobile encyclopedia could alone write a "Vijnana Prapancha"
(world of science).

Similarly Sri Bendra was a great poet and Maasti
was a great short story writer.  These four (Sri, Kuvempu, Sri Bendre,
Sri Maasti, Sri Karantha, Sri. U.R. Ananthamurthy, Sri. V.K. Gokak,
Sri. Girish Karnad) have bought the most prestigious literary award in
India called "Jnaanapeetha" award to Kannada, and the list of writers
is a long one who are more than worth for this prestigous award.  With
this great blend of people for Kannada, Kannada has the greatest face
of literature to show the world but falter in another front.
I will write about the rest in my next post.  Please try to collate this
information and add more to this and circulate the info in these
forums, so that the moderator can give this a final shape, which can
later be made into a petition and sent to many places, the GOK is one
of them.
