- M. K. Gandhi
Indeed, focusing on Kannada as the cornerstone of Kannadiga development (and similarly on other Indian languages as the cornerstones of the development of speakers of those respective languages) continues to pass Gandhi's litmus test above.
Also, considering (either explicitly or implicitly) any language other than Kannada as central to Kannadiga development continues to fail the test.
No wonder Gandhi himself was a very strong proponent of the development of Indian languages (specifically in education).
Today is Martyrs' Day, the day on which M. K. Gandhi was assassinated.
