Amma



A very creative way of writing ಅಮ್ಮ with the word ಅ made to look like a mom holding a child.

Thanking Everyone



ಅಮ್ಮನ ಆರೈಕೆ
ಅಪ್ಪನ ಶ್ರಮ
ಸ್ನೇಹಿತರ ಪ್ರೋತ್ಸಾಹ
...ಜೊತೆಗೆ ನಮ್ಮ ಪ್ರಯತ್ನ

Nenapu


ನನ್ನ ಬಾಳ ಸಂಗಾತಿಯ ಸವಿ ಸವಿ ನೆನಪು 
ಸಾವಿರ ನೆನಪು ಎಂದೆಂದಿಗೂ ಮರೆಯದ ನೆನಪು

This seems inspired by this song from My Autograph:

I could not find much information over the net on who they might be, wonder what their stories are!

ಮಂಡ್ಯದ ಹುಡುಗ
When it comes to cities, very few people display their love as much as Mandyans do. Mandyada huDuga, Mandyada haida, Mandyada gowdru are very commonly seen....

Aunty For Life



ಬಸ್ಸು ಹಿಂದೆ ಹೋದ್ರೆ ಧೂಳು
ಹುಡುಗಿ ಹಿಂದೆ ಹೋದ್ರೆ ಗೋಳು
ಆಂಟಿ ಹಿಂದೆ ಹೋದ್ರೆ ಬಾಳು
ಯಾಕೇ ಈ ಜೀವನ?

One More 'Manase'


ಮನಸೇ ಎಲ್ಲಾ
ನೀನೇ ಕಣೆ...!
Addressing the heart as if its a girl, yet another attempt at poetry here.

Also see the Kanaka Dasa photo on the window. By the way, did you ever wonder why you can see many Kanaka Dasa photos on vehicles/posters etc.(that too in the last decade) but not of Purandara Dasa, who was a contemporary philosopher, Carnatic composer and poet? The reason is that Kanaka Dasa was born in Kuruba community, who has been hijacked as a symbol of Kuruba pride. It is such a sad thing that great philosophers/thinkers who philosophize about greater things are always reduced to trivialities by their followers. Wearing the religion/caste pride explicitly on the sleeve is becoming an increasing phenomenon in the last decade or so among all religions/caste.

Whatever it is, this is one anecdote about Kanaka Dasa that I love very very much:
