ONE COMMENT ON THIS POST To “Kannada Sammelana from tomorrow”

  1. Thethreewisemen says:

    Minsters and officials galore for this cultural event! Typical of India and Mysore. In Western countries such events will be inaugurated by a prominent writer or an artist who supports the language. It says so much about the third world India, where the minsters, politians and officals of all sorts outnumber the audience!
