From November 1st, 2012 - I'll post one blog per day for 30-days to help you explore and learn Kannada in an easier way than ever :-)
Each blog post introduces one (ondu) kannada word (pada) along with the meaning, info about how to pronounce it (literal translation in English, Hindi), how to write the same in Kannada and its usage scenario(s).
Last but not the least, a live example about the chosen word with the help of a real photo captured at various places to relate and understand it in a better/simpler way.
Here's a sample format for each blog post that starts from November 1st 2012 to help you explore or learn kannada words and sentences on a daily basis.
