ಎಲ್ಲಾದರು ಇರು ಎಂತಾದರು ಇರು ಎಂದೆಂದಿಗೂ ನೀ ಕನ್ನಡವಾಗಿರು ಕನ್ನಡ ಗೋವಿನ ಓ ಮುದ್ದಿನ ಕರು ಕನ್ನಡತನವೊಂದಿದ್ದರೆ ನೀನಮ್ಮಗೆ  ಕಲ್ಪತರು ಕನ್ನಡವೇ ಸತ್ಯ ಕನ್ನಡವೇ ನಿತ್ಯ !  –ಕುವೆಂಪು

Kannada Sangha Ottawa is an organization in Ottawa that brings people from Karnataka origin together as a family and organizes events to bring awareness of Karnataka culture. We organize multiple events throughout the year such as picnics, poojas, and so much more.

This is the KSO (Kannada Sangha Ottawa) blog. It will give you information on all the activities, it will tell you how to contact us, it will give you access to some of the Indo-Canadian newspapers and much more.

The Past Year – 2016-2017 !!

We would like to thank Sri. Rajendra Hegde, Smt. Usha Hegde, Mrs. Charitra Patil and Sri. Girish Babu for having organized an amazing year. Last year was memorable in many ways.  They brought unique programs like Yakshagana to Ottawa.  This was truly a treat for Kannadigas who love traditional theatrical dance and music.  In addition to treating us to a delightful evening of music by Smt. Rathnamala Prakash, they also treated us with delicious Ugadi festive dinner. The delicious obbattu by Smt. Usha was just the perfect icing on the beautifully organized cultural event.

ಕಳೆದ ವರ್ಷದ ಕಾರ್ಯಕ್ರಮಗಳನ್ನು ಅಧ್ಭುತವಾಗಿ  ನೆರವೇರಿಸಿಕೊಟ್ಟ  ಕಾರ್ಯಕರ್ತರಾದ ಶ್ರೀ. ರಾಜೇಂದ್ರ ಹೆಗ್ಡೆ , ಶ್ರೀಮತಿ. ಉಷಾ ಹೆಗ್ಡೆ, ಶ್ರೀ. ಗಿರೀಶ್ ಬಾಬು ಹಾಗೂ ಶ್ರೀಮತಿ. ಚರಿತ್ರ ಪಾಟೀಲ್ ಅವರಿಗೆ ನಮ್ಮ ಹೃತ್ಪೂರ್ವಕ  ವಂದನೆಗಳು.  ಕಳೆದ ವರ್ಷ ನಿಜಕ್ಕೂ ಅವಿಸ್ಮರಣೀಯ. ನಮ್ಮ ಕನ್ನಡ ನಾಡಿನ ಪ್ರಸಿದ್ಧ ಕಲೆ ಯಕ್ಷಗಾನದ  ಸವಿಯನ್ನು ಒಟ್ಟಾವಾ ನಗರದ ಕಲಾರಸಿಕರಿಗೆ ಉಣಬಡಿಸಿದರು. ಶ್ರೀಮತಿ. ರತ್ನಮಾಲಾ ಪ್ರಕಾಶ್ ರವರ ಗಾನಸಂಜೆ ಹಾಗು ಯುಗಾದಿ ಹಬ್ಬದ ರಸದೌತಣ ಅಂತೂ ಮರೆಯಲು ಸಾಧ್ಯವಿಲ್ಲ. ಶ್ರೀಮತಿ. ಉಷಾರವರ ಒಬ್ಬಟ್ಟು ಆ ದಿನದ ಸಾಂಸ್ಕೃತಿಕ ಸಂಜೆಯ ಭೋಜನ ಕೂಟದಲ್ಲಿ  ವಿಶೇಷ ಮೆರುಗು ಕೊಟ್ಟಿತು .

  3. hi Satish, Sheela, Balu and Anand,

    The Ugadi event on April 25th was so wonderful, as was the entire 2014-2015 season. Throughout the past year, you autographed everything you did with a signature of excellence. It was very impressive.

    You put forth such extraordinary effort to take all of us back to our Kannada roots on as many different levels as possible. You created some amazing experiences along the way. Let us start with the culinary category. The delicacies that you cooked were so delicious. There is only one true set of words to describe them — they were simply Divine. The cultural programmes (dancing/singing/drama) were thoroughly enjoyable. They were wonderfully organized and showcased beautifully both the incredible talent that exists in our community and also the richness and diversity of our performing arts culture. The games we played at the picnic were so much fun and also very educational. The bilingual e-mails (in both and Kannada and English) were a special touch. It was all absolutely outstanding.

    You also took us on a journey back to our KSO roots, for which we are also very grateful. Both the History and the In Memoriam portion were so beautifully done — so very touching. They were deeply appreciated by all.

    Our heartfelt thanks to you for everything you did. Your hard work, commitment, dedication, passion, creativity and talent all came together perfectly to produce a remarkable year — one that will be long remembered.

    Warmest Regards,
    Sharada, Chandrika and Sriram

  4. ​Hi Satish and Brandon,

    It is so wonderful to have copies of both the History and the In Memoriam videos. Thank you so much for sending them to us.

    Thank you for taking all of us on such an extraordinary journey back to our KSO roots and for taking the time to honour those who are no longer with us. The script was written so beautifully. Actually, the incredible manner in which the whole thing was done — in such a loving, caring, kind, gentle, respectful, dignified, passionate and creative way — was so fitting — a true reflection of the spirits of all of the amazing individuals mentioned. The videos may have been brief, but they were very powerful. They evoked such vivid memories. We found the videos to be so deeply touching and so deeply moving. You did such a superb job.

    We want to express our heartfelt thanks to you for creating such a precious gift to the whole community.

    Warmest Regards,
    Sharada, Chandrika and Sriram
