Rajyotsava, again

RAJYOTSAVA CELEBRATIONS are here again. Kannada flags are being made and poles meant for them are getting painted in the city. Kannada organisations, as always, are keen on celebrating it for a month and beyond. As in the past, one will see people being entertained by orchestra bands on the roadside. Even in December!

Some Kannada organisations celebrate the occasion by organising blood donation and health camps. Others celebrate it by playing songs such as "Huttidare Kannada naadalli huttabeku" and also "Olage seridare gundu".

But is any one interested in the Rajyotsava Award, which once used to be a prestigious honour.
