    Kannada is very sweet language. Kannada old film songs specially of Dr. Raj Kumar, Vishnuvardan & Ananth nag acted films are good to hear. I sing also those songs. Kannadaka horandu kannadada Kanda is best to hear.

    I think 95 percent of kannadigas are not in a position to sing two lines of kannada songs. They need to give copy of songs in advance. So that they could learn it. Government has no other work. Like gow puja at every temple at divali time.
