TOI has not supported any pro kannada actitities in Karnataka. Instead they have remained silent on many occasions, For eg:
1. They opposed the Govt. action of making kannada compulsory in Primary schools.
2. They teach outsiders ways to get their work done in Bangalore with knowing or speaking in kannada.
3. There was not a single statement in their paper about the Railway controversy
4. There was not a single statement about the arrogance of Tamil's in Sriramapura.
5. There was no proper coverage of the Kannada Sahitya Sammelana
6. They support all anti kannada activities and make big news when Govt. tries to do any thing for Kannada.
7. They opposed renaming Bangalore as Bengalooru.
9. They publish every thing said by a non kannadiga but nothing said by a kannadiga in My Times Myvoice section of TOI
8. They are following the policy of divide and rule, for eg: Inviting Aishwarya Rai to Kannada Sammelana on their Monday 22nd january issue. There was no necessity of making it such a big news but they have published this to create a rift in the minds of Kodavas who are already having some misunderstanding about Kannada and Karnataka. TOI is sowing the seeds of hatredness among our own kodava brothers against Kannadigas. Publishing TOI in kannada is just an attempt to close Vijaya Karnataka in the future and spread hatredness among kannadigas and divide them so that outsiders can live here without any problem.

As you all might know that India's largest circulating English daily "TIMES OF INDIA" has taken over Karnataka's No.1 Kannada daily "VIJAYA KARNATAKA" 6 months back. When Times of India entered Kannada journalism through the backdoor of Vijaya Karnataka, there was a fear among all kannada activists, literates and kannada premi s that Times of India will definitely make Kannada journalism a glamour oriented.

It didnot workout as Vijaya Karnataka has a very good editorship headed by Vishweshwara Bhat. Chameleon "Times of India" finally showed its original color.Times closed "Usha Kirana" kannada paper within a month it tookover Vijaya Karnataka group from VRL Vijay Sankeshwar. Time is set to publish kannada version of "Times of India". It is nothing but just a dubbing work.

Those who have English to Kannada translation ability(outsiders can also do this task after having taken kannada course for one year) will get job in Times of India kannada version. Have you thought of our brothery Kannada journalists?. Now, each paper has a wide network of journalists, part time journalists, reporters so and so.A media represents the culture of the land and respects the heritage and moreover a media is a mirror to show the taste of people and their mindset. Times of India's effort will ruin kannada culture. As you all know how Times of India takes Kannada related things. Do we need this type of idiotic step from Times of India?.

What about our culture?. Will it be emphasised in a dubbed paper?.What is the guarantee that Times of India will not publish page 3 concept in kannada?.Dancing in a pub/club is a great thing for it.Because of regional papers like Prajavani, Vijaya Karnataka, Kannada Prabha etc, state govt and readers can understand farmers/artists/all kind of people problem. If Times of India comes in Kannada version, Narayana Murthy, Premji, Gates, Bollywood stars will occupy our heart. Will Times of India give justice to our farmers?.Its importance goes to fashion guru Adam Biddappa, Mallika sherawat, Bipasha Basu so and so.We opposed all kinds of dubbing including cinema. Why should we have spit of English daily in Kannada?.

It is our prestige to have a paper reported and edited atleast by our journalists.They can understand our feelings. Please consider this thing seriously and in the globalised world, try to survive with our culture,heritage and have a pro regional feeling.

Many of us at our home might be getting TOI daily. We can stop this and support Deccan Herald, Prajavani, Vijayakarnataka etc. That is how atleast we can support the good local papers.

ಕನ್ನಡ ಭಾಷೆ ಬರೀ ರೈತರ ಭಾಷೆ ಅಲ್ಲ. ಈಗಿನ ಹುಡುಗ/ಹುಡುಗಿಯರಿಗೆ ಬಾಲಿವುಡ್/ಹಾಲಿವುಡ್ ಅಂದ್ರೆ ಇಷ್ಟ. ಅವರಿಗೆ ಇದನ್ನೇ ಓದಿ ಅಂತ ಹೇಳಕ್ಕಾಗಲ್ಲ.
ಟೈಂಸ್ ಆಫ್ ಇಂಡಿಯಾ ಕನ್ನಡಕ್ಕೆ ಬಂದರೆ ಅವರ ಇಷ್ಟದ ವಿಷಯಗಳು ಕನ್ನಡಕ್ಕೆ ಬಂದು ಅದನ್ನು ಓದುತ್ತಾರೆ. ಇಲ್ಲ ಅಂದರೆ ಈಗಿನ ಹಾಗೆ ಕನ್ನಡ ಪೇಪರ್ರೇ ಓದಲ್ಲ.
ಇಂಗ್ಲೀಷ್ ಪೇಪರ್ ಓದ್ತಾ ಇರ್ತಾರೆ ಅಷ್ಟೇ! ಬರಲಿ ನೋಡೋಣ

ಬೇಕಿಲ್ಲ. ಕತೆ, ಕಾದಂಬರಿಗಳು ಅನುವಾದವಾಗುವುದು ಸರಿ. ಆ ಪ್ರಾಂತದ ರೀತಿ ನೀತಿಯನ್ನು ಪರಿಚಯಿಸುತ್ತದೆ. ಆದರೆ ಅನುವಾದಿತ ದಿನಪತ್ರಿಕೆ ಯಾವುದೇ ರೀತಿಯಲ್ಲೂ ಅವಶ್ಯಕವಿಲ್ಲ. ಇಂತಹ ಪ್ರಯೋಗ ಬೇರೆ ಯಾವುದೇ ಭಾಷೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ನಡೆದಿದೆಯೇ? ಗೊತ್ತಿದ್ದರೆ ತಿಳಿಸಿ.

i think no need of kannada translation of times of india version.
kannadigas have more cultured one, they dont want to implement western culture in their society.
But one unhidden truth is; most of the family people they don't want times of india cirulation also because of you are intentionally putting or highlighting the western culture here and conveying that it's normal thing that every one should adopt this culture.

those vulgur pics, celebrities party photos, what u r going to tell the society, is is necessary;
sincerely once you make servy whether they really want this kind of news, offcouse 100% they dont' want.

i'm not doubt about the quality of your paper, its all time best, but western culture implementation is not good..... just if we compare with The Hindu they will not publish any vulgur celebrity photos. for this reason only most of the families are not subscirbing the edition eventhough the paper new is good....

this i'm writing it to you first time. take it positively, because i'm one of the reader of your paper, i like it....

your reader
