Pu La's views on Belgaum Dispute
After reading my post on Belgaum Dispute, Gaurav Sabnis shared Pu La Deshpande’s speech during a Kannada Sahitya Sabha in Pune. His thoughts are quite humbling… “Maharashtra and Karnataka are political entities while Marathi and Kannadiga are cultural entities… you have meeting lines in the later case and borders in the former… one welcomes each other… the other say don’t enter!”
3M salutes Pu La for making such a profound statement with such ease… and laced with this characteristic humour!
