    Glad to know that a truly deserving person, Sarvottamanna is being honoured with Mayura Vishwamanya Kannadiga award. Sharjah Karnataka Sangha has been organizing fantastic events and serving the Karnataka community in Sharjah for all these years giving equal importance to all the five languages of Karnataka. Really appreciate their noble way of promoting all the languages and uniting all Kannadigas with no bias to region, religion and language.

    Wishing Sharjah Karnataka Sangha all the very best for a grand success and may the event reach the pinnacle of glory to remember for many years to come.
