Kannada Rajyotsava day
ಕನ್ನಡ ರಜ್ಯೋತ್ಸವ ದಿವಸ
Today is Kannada Rajyotsava day… the day on which Mysore state was renamed to Karnataka state. Indeed a sad day for the people of the princely state of Mysore… but one had to keep everyone happy, so there was no other option!
(BTW, the colors in the Kannada text above are the state colors, used in the state flag, this is how the flag actually look like, a simple one).
All Hail Karnataka
(We don’t need people like Deve Gowda telling us to do that… we know what we are.)
But, let’s not forget that Kannada Naadu goes back a long time… much longer than Karnataka.
A bit of history about how the state came to be known as Karnataka:
