    • Hello Sir, thanks for the suggestion. The website is in English in order to reach global audience and non-kannadigas. But the 100 odd research papers which gets presented and published every year are in Kannada. We have 27 volumes of Itihasa Dharshana each containing more than 100 papers. It is humongous task to translate all of them to English. That’s the reason we have given a brief summary of every article in English for non-Kannada readers to at least know what the paper talks about. We are thinking of building the Kannada Version of the website soon.

    • Thank you so much for your encouraging words Sir, I really appreciate it. One of the reason for launching the website in English was to reach out to non-Kannadigas and global audience. However, there is a great demand for doing the website in Kannada which I will be doing soon. I visited your blog and you yourself are doing a commendable job in throwing light on historical places. Looking forward for your continuous support.
