Udupi: Main entrance of Sri Krishna Math gets Kannada name board

Daijiworld Media Network - Udupi (MS)

Udupi, Dec 3: The Kannada board, which was replaced by Tulu and Sanskrit boards, of the main entrance of Sri Krishna Math here had created a lot of furore among the public and tourists. Now the main name board is replaced back to Kannada language.

The administration of Math is under Paryaya Adamaru Math at present. During lockdown, the Math was completely renovated. During this work, the old name board was removed and a new one was fixed. However, in the new board, Kannada language was missing. Instead, the name of the Math was written in Tulu and Sanskrit languages. This had hurt the feelings of devotees of the math as well as Kannada Sahitya Parishad.

Now the board is in Kannada and reads 'Vishwaguru Sri Manmadwacharya Moola Samsthana Sri Krishna Matha Udupi.'

Giving clarification on the issue, Govindraj, manager of the Math said, "During Lakshdweepotsava, the Kannada name board was not ready. So we had installed the Tulu and Sanskrit boards that were made ready. Now the Kannada board is ready and we have fixed the same. Our aim was not to hurt the feelings of anyone as well as showing disrespect to the Kannada language."

    Tulu should be given priority and not kannada.
