    mr. sugata , all the best for u r book launch.
    a book on such an important topic definitely warrants a read

  2. tarlesubba Says:

    Keeping Faith with the “Mother Tongue”.

    The invitation is in English, the function does not seem to have even one Kannada writer, though there is a Tamil writer invited. One gets the impression that the book is intended for ‘phoren’ readers.

    Chet avare..

    Prof. Settar is a respected writer in Kannada and authored several books – in Kannada incl Sangam Tamilgam, 300 page treatsie on Kaviraja Marga. He was a resident of Dharwad for decades.

    Infact, Settar is credited with co-authoring a paper deals that helps in automatic generation of indexto Kannada documents.

    Its really sad that recognition or even awareness about eminent Kannada writers such as Prof Settar is near zilch.

    I had the same feeling as chet. But, thanks, andy for educating. it is indeed sad that someone like me who thinks of myself as fairly knowledgeagle about KKK (kannada,kannadiga, and karnataka) is not aware of Prof Settar.

    I wonder who is to blame? Probably to some extent Settar himself, more media (kannada and english) and then maybe ourselves.

    But, yes, should be interesting to attend.

    I like the idea of crying about Kannada culture in English. Namma jeevanopaayakke lagge haakiroru kannnada arivillada mandi thaane?

    Such intellectual, inward looking, exercises in futility as Sugata’s are the reason why the Naaraayana Gowdas are taking over the Kannada mindset. Even Chandrasekhara Patil, a reputed mind person, has become their fellow traveler.

    Those of us who use this forum as a place to shed our tears about Kannadigas and Kannada are no exception. Rats in a maze.

    ond beDike.

    can we consolidate that writeup on education and medium of instruction and see if we can get one of the ka newspapers to publish it?

    Yaava write up, sahebre?

  11. Pulikeshi the Last Says:

    Settar avara pusthakagala titlegalu enu?

  12. vitlan Potli Says:


    ee link bhage irbayku. I think it is worth consolidating as mentioned by TS.

  13. Vitlan Potli Says:

    there is some discussion here as well

  14. Pulikeshi the Last Says:


    Thanks, but I am not very good at copying and pasting. Many times I have lost a response I wrote in this column and not been able to retrieve it.

    Consolidating our ideas on teaching in and about Kannada would be a splendid thing. Who will be our audience?

  15. Vitlan Potli Says:


    No worries about the readership. I guess we do have a lot of folks who have this trepidation about language, medium of instruction, the future of kannada. It touches many realms emotional, social & professional. We have seen that it stikes a chord with most and did evoke a lot of responses. Better to consolidate and have it a greater audience than not to try at all.

  16. tarlesubba Says:

    thanks VP and PTL for the indulgence. RG and Girish too might be interested.
    i agree with VP’s context.

    maybe, we can get the churumuri’s chef-in-chief to put in a word for us.

    How do we go about it? Where are you, TS?
