BREAKING NEWS: Kannada Identified as Classical Language

Okay, we've got breaking news. After years of protests and appeals, notably by the Karnataka Rakshana Vedike, Kannada has now been granted Classical Language status. It's time to celebrate, folks, and also time to cogitate on why it took so long, why it needed so many protests and appeals, what it means, and what we can do with the newly attached status.

Let ideas pour in. Come on!

We also congratulate our Telugu friends for Telugu also having been granted classical language status.

Also on ENGURU: ಕಡೆಗೂ ದಕ್ಕಿದೆ, ಕನ್ನಡಕ್ಕೆ ಶಾಸ್ತ್ರೀಯ ಭಾಷಾ ಸ್ಥಾನಮಾನ!!

Jugga said...

Ha ha! Jigar my friend, Hindi is hardly a language, let alone a classical language!!!!!

What has Hindi got? History? Ancientness? Literature? I'll tell you what it's got: My foot.

I am sure *jigar* above was at his best of sarcastic levels.. I am sure he intended to target the hindi imposition - and the fact that it could have granted itself the classical status ;-)

Anyway.. its now time we start making good use of Kannada being on the list. Lets look at what we've got on the table..

This is the greatest gift that could come to Kannadigas on the eve of Rajyotsava.

Important part is we should market our langauge all over world ,and not let think that kannada is limited to karnataka or kannadiga's

Hindi doesnt even has its own script. It has copied the script of Sanskrit i.e. devanagari script. How can hindi be classical very funny jigarrrrrrrrr

"hindi has ancient status from the time of ramayan and mahabharat"
Very funny,

Looks like this moron watches lot of TV, he got into this conclusion because of TV serials like Mahabharat,Ramayan which are aired in HINDI.

This is nothing, these mornons used to Worship Arun Govil and Deepika Chikaliya( Rama and Seeta fame), worse is that they even won Loksabha elections on that basis.

The language he is used really draws attention, he should booted and jailed.

Its a time to celebrate, don't fight with few TV addicted morons.
Kannada has more words than tamil or hindi. Just with a state of nearly 6 crore people we have 7 Jnana-Peeta awardee. "We have most pathetic political system. They made us to fight for this". Carnatic music originated here and Purandara dasa is the father of it. KaLidasa and many more were here.
Hope that this government realizes the work of S.L.Byrappa and PoorNa Chandra Tejasvi and award them with Jnana peeta award.

telugu dravidian brother here from singapore. I am so proud of my kannadiga brothers and sisters for their achievements. Kannadiga is indeed by every means a beautiful and classical language. I have alot of respect for kannadigas, your state capital Bengaluru is a highly properous city. Telugus once shared the great Vijayanagra empire with Kannadigas. :)

Congratulations for the respect and acknowledgement you deserve.

I have always wished for the dravidian states of tamil nadu, kerala, andhra pradesh and karnataka to have our own pure dravidian nation where our language, history, culture and pure racial dravidian heritage can be preserved from hingi-imposing north indian mixed breeds.

To all my Kannadiga friends - ಶುಭಾಶಯಗಳು!!!

I'm visiting this site after some time and I'm delighted that Kannada and Telugu have been declared as classical languages, and this is something that was unnecessarily delayed for a long time due to the Hindi fascists. And don't worry about the ill-mannered Hindi fascists' comments on this post - it only goes to show their crude nature.

Hopefully, this should serve as a rallying point for Kannada and Kannadigas to oppose the imposition of the regional language of Bihar and U.P. (i.e. Hindi) on the people of Karnataka. All non-Hindians should be united in fighting the nefarious designs of the Hindi fascist politicians from states like Bihar and U.P. The fight for our rights should continue till the heinous crime of Hindi imposition is stopped and all languages are declared as official languages of the central government.

dear folks,
In celebrations, we all join hands and exchange good feeling among eachother.its a pleasing moments for all of us. regarding kannada's classic language status is really a good news and people living in the Karnataka should feel proud about it. Kannada is rich in langauage, heritage and lot of nature loving peoples. As we say Old is Gold, so finally golden thing has got its lustre back and now its shining brightly.
As of me, i m nor South-Indian, nor North-Indian. I m West-Indian.

maaysa said...

Not yet. There is pending case.

The correct sentence is "Kannada is supposed to be declared as a classical language"

Jai Veerupaksha said...

True Maaysa.

We should never trust anyone else but a fellow Kannadiga. Such is the state of affairs in our country that a truely deserving language of 5 crore people is eventually dependent upon getting a writ filed by 1 fanatic from a neighbouring state withdrawn.

Symbolic or otherwise, this shows how things work in our country and till we become as independent as possible from the centre in this federal setup....Karnataka/Kannada/Kannadigas will continue to be fooled and looted in broad daylight.

Yeddy and co..Hope you are awake to the fact that this technicality is still pending and we wouldn't like to wait till the next Rajyotsava to get this dispensed.

adhi said...

We should act very cruely(as per law enforcement) with people like jiggar. WE SHOULD emulate THE MAHARASTRA govt way of taking sternous action against those who speak against the great Chatrapathi Shivaji. ALSO this WEBSITE also should take care of not publishing this kind of matters.

Guru,

i have been observing from last one week that TV9 channel
is telecasting lot of Telugu related news.

Tuesday night at 8.30pm, they were telecasting reviews of
some telugu movie and last week, they had telecasted film
telugu actress interview and it was completely in
telugu.

I dont know why they telecast Telugu more in Karnataka. I
think we have to ask them to stop.

let me know if you people know any one in TV9 channel. we
should stop it now otherwise they will continue promoting
telugu in karnataka.

I request you to do some thing on this ... ...........

Regards
Kannadiga

Sometime channels get the filler from sister channels when they dont have anything to show. Since TV9 is Telugu owned media company, there is every chance to have filler from parent channel. Moreover, Telugu is widely spoken language in Karnataka. Most prominent is Bellary where just "one" out of 11 theater show Kannada movies, rest of them show Telugu movies.
