ಎಲ್ಲಾದರೂ ಇರು, ಎ೦ಥಾದರೂ ಇರು, ಎ೦ದೆ೦ದಿಗೂ ನೀ ಕನ್ನಡವಾಗಿರು… ಕನ್ನಡವೇ ಸತ್ಯ, ಕನ್ನಡವೇ ನಿತ್ಯ…

After watching many programs about kannada and the celebrations I thought Why can’t people have the same spirit throughtout year. These celebrations will last for a month. Then everyone will follow other language, will show their love for other language. Outsiders come to karnataka, they teach their language to the people here instead of learning kannada. ಮಚ್ಚಾ is a tamil word but its frequently used in kannada by many college students. Recently in a movie, I heard “ಕಾಳು ಹಾಕ್ತಿದಿಯಾ…. ಬಿಸ್ಕೀಟು ಹಾಕ್ತಿದಿಯಾ“. Do you know what it means? Its the way of asking ‘are you trying to flirt?’ “ಬಿಸ್ಕೀಟು ಹಾಕ್ತಿದಿಯಾ”  also means ‘trying to fool someone easily’. There are many such words and phrases which can not be understood by common man. Sometimes I don’t understand whats being said. I agree my kannada may not be very good but its not bad either. I was impressed by the way Chief justice Mr. Joseph spoke kannada in a function today. He is basically from Kerala. He gave a speech in kannada. Though there were many kannadigas on the stage they added few English words. But he did not add any English words. His accent sounded more like Malayalam still he tried his best to speak in kannada.
