Misc. Stuff Durable Link to this BLOG
Today's Bappa's birthday. He would have been 72. The New English School in Honavar, where Bappa studied (and I did as well) is conducting a "Kamat Day". They also conducted an exhibition last month during the Ganapati Festival (see Report in Udayavani Newspaper).

The library that Amma built in Honavar might finally start this year (we've had all kinds of problems from mischief-mongers).

Vijayakarnataka Remembers Bappa

Via a Reader's Tip: Today's Vijayakarnataka newspaper has a column about Bappa on Page 7. Nice

If you can read Kannada, the Vijayakarnataka has an excellent essay by S.L. Bhyrappa on the Tippu-Kannada controversy. It is full of facts, and includes an attack on Girish Karnad. It is on the Sept 24th issue.
