ಹಲೋ ರವೀ... ನಾನು ಸೋಮು ಅಂತ..
ಹೇಗಿದ್ದೀಯಾ ರವೀ...ನನ್ನ ಹೆಸರು ಸೋಮು ಅಂತ. ನೀನು ದಯವಿಟ್ಟು ಹೊಸ ಅಂಕಣಗಳನ್ನು ಬರೆಯಬೇಡ. ಏಕೆಂದರೆ ಅವೆಲ್ಲ ನಮ್ಮ ಬಾಯಲ್ಲೆ ಇವೆ. ಹಳೆಯ ಅಂಕಣಗಳನ್ನು ಬರಿ..ಪ್ಲೀಜ್.
ಐ ಲವ್ ಯು..ರವೀ..ಐ ಲವ್ ಯು ಸೋ ಮಚ್. ಪ್ಲೀಜ್ ಆನ್ಸ್ರ್ ಮಿ, ಟೇಕ್ ಕೇರ್ ಬೈ.
ಯಾವ ಊರು ?
ಸೂ-ರ್ಯ ಶಿ-ಕಾ-ರಿ-ಗೆ ನೂರು ಥ್ಯಾಂ-ಕ್ಸ್ !
ಅಮೆರಿಕಾಕ್ಕೆ ಬಂದ ಮೇಲೆ ನಾನು ಎಲ್ಲಕ್ಕಿಂತ ಬಹುವಾಗಿ ಕಳೆದುಕೊಂಡಂತೆ ಚಡಪಡಿಸಿದ್ದು ‘ಹಾಯ್ ಬೆಂಗಳೂರು’ ಪತ್ರಿಕೆಗಾಗಿ. ಹಾಯ್ ಬೆಂಗಳೂರನ್ನು ವೆಬ್ ಪತ್ರಿಕೆಯಾಗಿ ಮಾಡಬೇಕೆಂದು ಕಾಡಿ ಬೇಡಿ ರವಿ ಬೆಳಗೆರೆಗೆ ಅನೇಕ ಇ-ಮೈಲ್ ಗಳನ್ನು ಕೂಡ ಕಳುಹಿಸಿದ್ದೆ. ಅವರ ಇ-ಮೈಲ್ ವಿಳಾಸವನ್ನೂ ನೀವೇ ಒದಗಿಸಿದ್ದಿರಿ. ಅವರಿಗೆ ಏನು ಅಡೆ-ತಡೆಗಳಿವೆಯೋ ಇದುವರೆಗೆ ನನ್ನ ಆಶಯ ಈಡೇರಲಿಲ್ಲ. ಯಾವಾಗಾದರೂ ಬೆಂಗಳೂರಿಗೆ ಬಂದಾಗ ನಾನು ಮಿಸ್ ಮಾಡಿಕೊಂಡ ಹಳೆಯ ಸಂಚಿಕೆಗಳನ್ನೆಲ್ಲಾ ಗುಡ್ಡೆ ಹಾಕಿಕೊಂಡು ಓದದೆ ಬಿಡಲಾರೆ.
ಈಗ ನನ್ನ ಪ್ರೀತಿಯ ‘ದಟ್ಸ್ ಕನ್ನಡ’ದಲ್ಲೇ ‘ಸೂರ್ಯ ಶಿಕಾರಿ’ ಅಂಕಣದಲ್ಲಿ ರವಿಯ ಲೇಖನಗಳನ್ನು ಓದುವ ಸೌಭಾಗ್ಯವನ್ನು ಒದಗಿಸಿಕೊಟ್ಟಿದ್ದಕ್ಕೆ ನಿಮಗೆ ನಾನು ಆಭಾರಿ. ಶಿಕಾರಿ ಮುಂದುವರೆಯಲಿ, ನಾವೆಲ್ಲಾ ನಿಮ್ಮ ಜೊತೆಯಲ್ಲಿದ್ದೇ ಇರುತ್ತೇವೆ.

I am very happy today. THANK YOU VERYMUCH FOR STARTING RAVIS COLUMN.What I was trying to read since so many months has come true. You really read my mind and fulfiled my desire. I am also happy because Ravi wrote a well
deserved article on you in Hai...after I sent the Time pass review to him.(The anamika mitra in that article is yours truly!)
Your new look is good. Dattatri is real big surprise. He really writes good. I think you are turning into a king/star maker!
Mr. Ravi Belgers article is very interesting and meaningful. I suggest that all those that are thinking of retiring, should read this article. Just very recently we were talking on this subject. People who just retire without a plan, die very soon, since they feel that their life has come to an end. Retirement age is just the beginning of starting a different careers, a new hobby or just provide some service to the community, so you can stay active, healthy and live longer. I am glad that Mr. Ravi has addressed all these aspects in his article. It is nice to see that thatskannada.com is bringing so many new writers to light. It deserves our applaud.
I am happy to know that RB is going to write for your website. The first article itself has been very effective and touching. Looking forward for more such reading.
Ravi Belagere Sir...
( I have super-friendship with Sham to call him Sham and NOT S.K.Shamasundar, but with you, as of now, shall prefer Ravi Belagere Sir...)
Welcome to thatskannada.com! I am extending this warm welcome on behalf of the vast readers of thatskannada, here in the US.
Its heartening to see start of a weekly column by you in our favorite Kannada Newsportal. However, our happiness would have been more if you wee to write specially" for thatskannada readers (as against presently a write-up being reprouced from Hai Bangalore). Please give it a thought (in our favor...).
We look forward to your "kattiginta harita lekhaniyimda bareda lekhanagalu...."
Did Sham point out to you, a lighter vein mention I made in my "Vichitranna" write-up recently about Ravi and Dinakar as synonyms for Soorya?
Warm regards and best wishes,
Its very nice to see Ravi Belageres Coloumn in our http://www.thatskannada.com. It will be very nice to read ravi belageres articals, I missed "Hi Bangalore" from last 2 years here in New York, it will be very good news for many kannada people living outside Karnataka.
Thanks a lot for making such a good thing!
I must reiterate at this point that you are doing a lot of good work. The new column by Ravi Belagere is a real firecracker. It is pleasing and disturbing at the same time because of the writing style and the content respectively.
Excellent writing. We readers welcome more articles like this one. Good work Ravi!!! Hope, you will continue writing...
