Introduction

Welcome to the Section on Karnataka at Kamat's Potpourri.

When our son Vikas was seven years old, he wanted to write a book just like his father. He did write a series of essays, which he titled Jai Karnataka. After twenty five years, that is the title we chose for our section on Karnataka at Kamat's Potpourri.

Karnataka being our home, has been the field of our research for a long time. My doctoral dissertation was on Karnataka (Social Life in Medieval Karnataka), and my husband has extensively traveled in the state. Our son  Vikas studied in a Kannada medium school and the language is a dear one to all of us at Kamat's Potpourri.

As you browse through the website, you will discover priceless portraits of Kannada geniuses, ancient Kannada inscriptions, stunning nature shots, studies on its glorious temples, and  a complete integration of all of these, although there are separate sub-sections for Bangalore, Mysore, Karavali, Kannada Literature, Bijapur etc.,
