Hi Kiran,

It's great to know the real persons behind this blog. I follow this blog regularly and though I may not agree with all the posts, I appreciate your efforts for the cause of Kannada. Keep up your good work.

I came across this article in New York Times -, that explains how South Koreans are spreading their language. I think it is a wonderful move considering that this is what the Roman Script is also doing. Let's think of innovate ways to enrich our language.

Hi, Nice to see see you and your blog and your efforts for spreading awareness. Introspection is always the first step towards realizing and thus a needed step for awareness which I am seeing in your blog.

Namaskara Kiran,

Nimmannu,"blog" nalli Parichayisikondiddakke dhanyavadagaLu.

But, my personal opinion is that it would be more appropriate to continue this blog as "We" rather than "I".
it was "we" of this blog, which brought all Kannadiga of the world to common platform of thinking.

@ Prashant JS,

Nimma anisikegaagi dhanyavaadagalu.

At the Balaga, we took the decision to go ahead in the current format after discussing the pros and cons of the available options. We believe the pros outweigh the cons.

You have used big words to describe the impact this blog has on Kannadigas worldwide. I only hope it lives up to your expectations.

Looking forward to your continued support of our cause...
