Kannada fervor pervades 2 districts on Rajyotsava Day

Language is a tool for expressing feelings and is not an ammunition, said district in-charge minister K R Ramesh Kumar.

Speaking at the Kannada Rajyotsava programme organised by the district administration on Wednesday, the minister said that Karnataka had a unique place in the map of India. "Karnataka is not restricted to a particular geographical area. It implies a specific culture, community and lifestyle," he said.

The minister said that he considers himself lucky for getting an opportunity to host the national tricolour and the Kannada flag.

He said though Kolar had become a parched land due to successive drought, it was rich culturally and historically. Several dynasties have ruled here and the then rulers have constructed a large number of temples, tanks and temple ponds which have enriched the cultural heritage of the district.

Kolar has a large number of places of historical interest. It has made a significant contribution to sports, music, arts and literature.

It is a matter of pride that more candidates from the district are joining administrative services.

However, a lot more need to be achieved in education, health, commerce, industries, transportation and sports.

The greatness of a state lies in the educational level and health of its subjects. Therefore, parents should provide education to their children without failure.

In addition, they should also ensure the health of their wards. Children are the great assets of the country.

B Visma Taj, S kavya, K Adarsh and Srikanth, who secured highest marks by studying in Kannada, were felicitated on the occasion.

Legislator Varthur Prakash, taluk panchayat president M Anjinappa, city municipal council president Mahalakshmi, deputy commissioner G Satyavathi, zilla panchayat chief executive officer B B Kaveri, additional deputy commissioner K Vidyakumari and others were present.

A grand procession of various tableaux was taken on the occasion.

Celebration at Bangarpet

Bangarpet Taluk administration and Kannada Sangha had jointly organised a grand procession on the occasion of 62nd Kannada Rajyotsava in Bangarpet.

The tableaux in the procession highlighted the rich cultural heritage and tradition of Karnataka.

Speaking at the Kannada Rajyotsava function in Mulbagal, legislator Kottur G Manjunath said that Kannada had the distinction of having eight litterateurs conferred with the prestigious Jnanapit award.

Malur legislator K S Manjunatha Gowda, who presided over the 62nd Kannada Rajyotsava programme in Malur, said that Rajyotsava should not be an annual affair, but it should be one which is celebrated for the whole year.

He said that more number of industries were being set up in the taluk and hence a large number of non-Kannadigas seeking job would come to the taluk.

The local people should ensure that they too learn Kannada and speak our language, he suggested.

District in-charge minister K R Ramesh Kumar, speaking at the Kannada Rajoytsava event in Kolar Gold Fields, said that financial assistance would be extended from the municipality for construction of Kannada Bhavana on the premises of Kannada Sangha in Robertsonpet.

As many as 12 teams took part in the Kannada Rajyotsava parade held at Sir M Visvesvaraya stadium in Chikkaballapur.

The contingents of district armed reserve, civilian police, Home Guards, Poornaprajna School, government school for girls, Panchagiri Bodhana School, St Joseph's High School, Sir M V Memorial School, Bharathi high school, Good Shepherd high school and St John's High School, stole the show.

Legislator M Veerappa Moily, legislator Dr K Sudhakar, zilla panchayat president P N Keshava Reddy, Urban Development Authority chairperson S M Muniyappa, deputy commissioner Deepti Kanade and Superintendent of Police Karthik Reddy were present on the occasion.

Speaking at the Kannada Rajyotsava event in Gudibande, legislator S N Subbareddy said that Kannada Sahitya Parishat and pro-Kannada organisations have made a significant contribution in the development of Kannada.

He said that the state government has released around Rs 200 crore for the development of border areas.
