Thank you for the quick and encouraging reply ! This kind of personal attention & interactive nature of Vichitranna must be winning you so many friends.
I did like your "Bhootaradhane vichitranna", though I should admit, I didnt read the tulu prayer but only read the kannada translation. I had lot of friends from DK and Mangalore
during my engg. days. In fact 50% of our class consisted of Tulu & Konkani speaking people. Tulu is a nice language and I had ventured learning it, though I didnt learn much.
Your idea of introducing bits from other cultures/languages is good as this gives some insight into different cultures and also idea about cultural diversities in Karnataka / India
(Hopefully - in coming episodes) . All your columns till now have provided interesting reading.
Thanks again and Warm Regards,
Do you carry your pen and note book to Boothada Kola too :-)) I have attended few Boothada Kola. The tulu dialog is really super. I like to listen this from Mr. Boothappa :-)

I really enjoyed reading about bhUta parba in vichitraanna. Brought back my own bhUta(past) to mind. Like you said it had maNNina vaasane! That is such a welcome fragrance to a hora naaDa kannaDiga or even oLa naaDa kannaDiga in this age of steel
