I haven’t found the means to determine the period that marks the commencement of efforts towards giving an integrated structure to public life in the State of Mysore. Such efforts had already taken place in the State of Madras by 1852-53. Even before the Sepoy Mutiny (also known as The First War of Indian Independence) of 1857, an organization called the Madras Native Association had been formed. Gajalu Lakshminarasu Chetty, G Purushotthama Naidu, and a few other public luminaries were its leaders.

While reflecting on the history of Kannada revival, one thing that I am most certainly reminded of, is the publication of Udupi’s Śrīkṛṣṇasūkti. Śrīkṛṣṇasūkti was a monthly journal; Kerodi Subba Rao and Rajagopalakrishna Rao were its editors. Though I am not acquainted with Kerodi Subbarao, I have seen him from a distance.

This attractive word, although appears to be in the language of children, is originally a Sanskrit word. It is well-known that the Moon is commonly called ‘Chanda’ and someone close is often called ‘Mama’ in Sanskrit. It is seen that the same word is used in Kannada, Telugu, Hindi, and so on. This publication, titled ‘Chandamama’ in the Sanskrit version was called ‘Ambulimama’ in Tamil and Sinhalese and ‘Chandoba’ in Marathi.
In 1922, the Kannaḍa Sāhitya Sammeḻana was held at Davanagere. That year, Mysore’s Vṛddha Pitāmaha Sri. M. Venkatakrishnayya presided over the conference.

Sixty to seventy years of his ceaseless, multidimensional service to society, is remembered as a virtuous life in our state’s history.
