Root cause

The basic attitude towards the language has to change. It is considered as a language spoken until we discover that the person knows English. It should be the language of choice, we should understand and internalize within ourselves that it is the language for "high-class aristocrats" as much as it is for the common man. We can see that when two Kannadigas meet for the first time, they start talking in English, and often the conversation continues for a long time in English. Eventually it may happen that they never get to know that the other person knew Kannada at all. Why is it in our character to always talk to well dressed aristocratic people first in English?

After some introspection, I concluded that this reason comes from our past generation. Around a decade ago, people used to regard with awe any person who speaks in English. Knowledge of English was an indication that the person was well educated. As far as he/she was concerned, the natural tendency of any well educated person is to try to gain respect from the society, the easiest means of showing he was well educated or was in a high position was by speaking in English! Look no further than many old Kannada movies, where a sophisticated character like an inspector or a doctor usually uses more English than Kannada.

I would not like to judge whether that was correct or wrong. But now, in the current times, we need to realize that we have advanced a lot more in our thinking. One example is that Bangalore has become one of the IT hubs of the world. We should know that character is the true indication of education, not the language. I would say that dependence on English to gain respect only shows weakness in character, a sign of insecurity that the person is not really proud to be a Kannadiga.
