ET screamed an article with headline "Cyber world hails UP Engineer who also knows Kannada". I would have left it at that had I not been provoked to comment about this.
First, surprised that ET's article header screams UP Engineer who also knows Kannada. Is there hidden sarcasm? If not, is being an engineer or knowing a south Indian language an added qualification?
Well, I think I am reading too much into this. But here are my views.
- Its not usual to come across a person from the north who knows a south Indian language...Hmm I don't think so.
- Or because they claim he has not forgotten the language even after leaving the state of Karnataka - maybe as this is very unusual.
- Its more unusual for an engineer who knows Kannada getting into politics (Why not a nice techie job in somewhere in Silicon Valley :-P)
- Celebrating the spirit of Bangalore because Akhilesh understands "Swalpa adjust madi"
I hope there will be no jugads or Swalpa adjust madi
