Today, is the 50th year of Karnataka’s formation. Fifty years, on this day, Karnataka, the land of Kannada speaking people was formed.
As B M Sree said, “kannaDa kaTTuva kelasa aagabeku”. It is more important to build upon our culture than just retain what we already have.
As a zen saying goes, “what is green grows, what is ripe, rots”. We, kannadigas should stop repenting our missed chances so far and have to look ahead to find newer opportunities for the next millennium.
Let us embrace what is progressive, while rooted firmly in our culture and tradition.
This is a good time for us to engage in introspection, share our visions and stand by each other to build a stronger karnataka.

PS: I’m starting a series of blogposts, one per day, for the next 365 days, dealing with kannada and karnataka.
