A few people recently asked me pointers to translation of few common sentences in Kannada. I had posted these earlier in Infy-blogs DP (Dinada Pada) and now re-posting at the external world for the benefit of those who know a little kannada and now want to rectify their grammatical mistakes. Also since Karnataka Rajyotsava is round the corner, I shall dedicate this month for Kannada lessons.
