This is an effort to introuduce ourselves and share our story of how this website
came into existance.
My name isn't unknown on internet, but definitely
it wasn't known in the context of Kannada. Having studied in kannada medium and
being surrounded with people who are proud kannadiga's always kept reminding me
for doing something for my mother tongue.
Last year (2006) I wanted to
send a greeting on new year to all my friends in kannada. Digging through internet
produced numerous greetings in english and other languages but very few in kannada
language, and they weren't up to the mark. Finally i ended up making my own greeting
in kannada and sent it to all my friends. From that day onwards i started wondering
why shouldn't i make greetings in kannada and share with other kannadigas. After
4 months i moved to Canada and had a plenty of time to work on something like
this. I started working on creating a few greetings on experimental basis and
the response was tremendous. I moved on to make it a full fledged kannada-greetings
website and this website was born.
Somu contributed numerous touching
poems to many greetings of this site. Read more about his other work on kannada
on his blogs http://navilagari.wordpress.com
Many people provided their valuable feedbacks that helped us improve this
Its been a pleasure making this site and contributing something
for kannada's internet presence.
