    Abu Dhabi Karnataka Sangha, one of the premier Karnataka organisations in Abu Dhabi celebrated the 64th 'Karnataka Rajyotsava' at India Social and Cultural Centre Auditorium, Abu Dhabi. As always it looks that the event was very colorful spiced with vibrant Kannada speeches to commemorate the formation of our loving State Karnataka. Congrats to the President & Patron for meticulously organizing this celebration year after year with all the zeal and patriotic mood.

    Special attraction is the presence of Sro Annamalai, Former IPS officer who has carved a name as tough & straight forward officer as the Chief Guest.

    I am glad and happy that Da Ra Bendre Prashasthi' was conferred on Manohar Tonse, a very senior member of Karnataka Sangha for his contribution to Kannada journalism, literature and language.
