BENGALURU: “The biggest threat to our land, language, literature and culture is not posed from outside but is from within, from the Anglicised Kannadigas who do not even want their children to speak in Kannada,” said educationist Prof. Dr K P Putturaya of the International Medical College.

He was delivering the 10th lecture under the series ‘Kannadavannu ulisuva mattu belasuva pari’ organised by Karnataka Kaigaarika Vanigyodyama Kannada Sanghagala Okkuta’ under the aegis of ‘Kannada Abhivriddi Praadhikaara,’ Government of Karnataka.
He urged everyone to develop the habit of reading old and new books, to listen to old and new songs and also to develop the habit of creative and/or scholarly writing.
He opined that Kannada should adapt and change itself to stay alive and relevant in the present globalising scientific era.
“Unfortunately today in Bengaluru the most heard phrase is Kannada Gotilla. Hence every Kannadigas should teach Kannada to non-Kannadigas, each one teaches one,” he advised.
Taking a dig at aimless, ill-informed Kannadigas who cause trouble, he said that they lack vision and right advice though their intentions are good.
“Being broad minded is Kannadiganess. Saving and strengthening Kannada should be our principle, duty and right,” he added.
Siddaiah, the Secretary of ‘Karnataka Kaigaarika Vanigyodyama Kannada Sanghagala Okkuta’ urged the state government to immediately implement the revised version of Sarojini Mahishi report.
“Chief Minister Siddaramaiah should prove his love and loyalty towards the language and land by implementing Sarojini Mahishi report.
