Surat (Gujarat), Nov 4: "Kannadigas who have migrated across the border of Karnataka are dedicated to their language, and this forum proves that such Kannadigas are the real sons of Kannadambe, they live with linguistic harmony in their workplaces," said veteran litterateur D R Sunitha in her presidential address during the 9th All India Kannada Cultural Convention held at Surat in collaboration with Karunda Sangha Surat and Hruduyavahini Monthly, Mangalore on Saturday November 3.
"Kannadigas have strong blood relationship with Kannada. This convention is a testimony to the fact that the language and culture of Karnataka is alive," she added.

"Scholars opine that any nation in the world gives first preference to culture, and next to language. Language is a reflection of culture, and hence language and culture are mutually related. The Kannadigas who are scattered widely around the world have reached the great heights, and Kannada language is a model to other languages. The world has identified the contribution of Kannadigas in Information Technology. The reason behind the success of Kannadigas is that they mingle easily with other cultures. Everything can be achieved through the harmony and not ego. This kind of convention further strengthens our bond," she said.
