‘Change ‘Mini’ to ‘Kiru’ Vidhana Soudha urge Kannada Activists

Mangaluru: The Kannada translation for the English word “Mini” is either “Kiru”, “Mari” or “Kiriya”- and that’s the word activists belonging to a newly formed organization called “Kannada Katte” are urging the State government to change the name of all Mini Vidhana Soudhas/Taluk Administration Complexes in the State to “Kiru Vidhana Soudhas”.

It is learnt that a memorandum from this organization has been forwarded to the newly elected Karnataka State Kannada Sahitya Parishat President, Manu Baligar. According to Kannada Katte President, Dr Annaiah Kulal who states that ” it is against the state government’s language policy to have English words on govt. sign boards. Since Kannada is the administration language in the state, then it is advisable that “Mini” word should be changed to either “Kiru”, “Mari” or “Kiriya” to abide with the state’s Kannada policy ,”.

It is also learnt that this “Kannada Katte” organization in Mangaluru of nearly 300 members, are also associated with Karnataka Rakshana Vedike, and they have already organized various campaigns to make Kannada official/compulsory in all State Govt. offices/complexes. Kannada Katte has members from various walks of life, including lawyers, teachers, doctors, entrepreneurs and many others in various professions.

Let’s keep our fingers crossed as to what would be the fate of “Mini” transforming itself into “Kiru” at all govt.complexes, including the present “Mini Vidhana Soudhas? So how about “Mini Bus”, “Mini Meals”, “Mini Hall”, “Mini Bar” ,”Mini Idli/Vada”, etc.. ‘Mari Bar’ could be pronounced by some as “Mary Bar” after few pegs?

  1. It’s a good idea. I don’t know what kind of genius came up with ‘mini’ in the first place!! I cringe every time I see references to ‘canara’, mercara’, koorg’ etc!!! I guess, it will take a long time to cure self-hatred taught by foreign masters!!!

    Sir,Two times BJP president and the current Home affairs minister Rajnath Singh stirred a controversy when he made a comment about how use of English language was destroying not only ‘our’ culture, but was seriously harming India as a country. And of course as happens in any political rally, he got some solid applause.

    Rajnath Singh’s kids are English Vinglish, When it comes to his home and children, BJP chief Rajnath Singh does not seem to have much of a problem with English or Western ways of life.He had sent his younger son, Neeraj, to study abroad, and his daughter Anamika worked in the United States.

    While RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat has come to his defence, academics and litterateurs have a different take.Who himself embroiled in controversy saying Rapes occur in ‘India’, not in ‘Bharat’.

    Now PM Modi is so mesmerised with British word of ‘India’, he is launching his new product like ‘Digital India’,’Make-in India’,startup India”Stand up India’.Now one marketing tool called ‘resurgent India’ to empower women of India for which RSS supremo linked to rape.

    They worship ‘Bharat Mata’, name every product to British ‘India’,where is the RSS political wing BJP ‘nationalism’ gone?

  3. @ Jihaadi Shaikh – When was the last time you went for a health checkup? I’m really concerned as you seem to have the same response irrespective of the topic being discussed here. Is it because your friends in Syria are getting bombed by Russia, US and NATO??? smiles..

    @ Joker Praveena Pinto – I feel sorry for you as your masters have repeatedly denied you a visa!! Remember, they want people like you to stay back wherever you are and continue ‘sanaathana-dhwesha’. Why do you think they taught you all the dinka-dinka songs and silly costumes?? LOL When it comes to visa, they only need smart folks!! smiles….

    • I feel sorry for you as your masters have repeatedly denied you a visa!! – Donald Trumpa’s Bro – Originaalige Rampa

      On the CONTRARY, it is actually me who feels so darn sorry for you! Despite repeated requests etc, you have miserably failed to provide any proof about your allegation. that’s when it becomes a Joke! 🙂

      Sets you on the same plane as that bumbling Bassi! HOWEVER, I look at the brighter side of it coz your antics * jokes are very amusing!

    • LOL When it comes to visa, they only need smart folks!! smiles…. – Rampa

      Lol! How “smart” is evident from your VERY FIRST post – “I command a 7 figure salary”. Hahahahaha. 🙂

      And how “smart” is further buttressed by your comment wherein you referred to that deadly shooting in the US as “an isolated incident”!

      And then, after I recovered from stomach cramps (caused by laughing SO much), I had to provide you with proof to prove that such fatal incidents can NEVER be called as “isolated incidents”! Jeez! HOW can such incidents – which numbered MORE than the number of days of 2015 be termed whatever you called them!

      Get OFF your ‘bhang swapna’, ya, Rampa.
