I worked as a Senior Engineer with Kuwait Airways for a few years starting from 1981. We had about 65 Families from Karnataka living in Kuwait. In 1984, a few of us decided to start a Kannada Association to bring all Kannada families together on a Platform to practice, enhance and enjoy the Kannada Culture.The Association was named Kuwait Kannada Koota (KKK) and After a competition, the present Logo of the Kannada Koota, which depicts a Jasmine Plant with the fragrant Jasmine Flower blossoming in the Kuwait Desert and the Kuwait Land Mark Kuwait Towers. With great enthusiasm and efforts of the members, Kuwait Kannada Koota (KKK) grew in Stature and started celebrating many cultural activities in the form of Lectures on different subjects, Essay competitions, Music, Dance, Dramas, Festivals like Ugadi, Dasara, Diwali etc.Music concerts on Purandaradasara Aradhane,Thyagaraja Aradhane etc. Another much valued Function KKK celebrates every year is the Karnataka Rajyotsava in the month of November. KKK celebrated the Silver Jubilee in the year 2010 along with the Rajyotsava. As one of the Founder Presidents of KKK,I was invited to attend the Silver Jubilee Function with enchanting Cultural Activities spread over a Week.It was one of the most enjoyable weeks in my life I spent with my friends in KKK. On returning to India after attending the Silver Jubilee Function,I wanted to thank all the members of the Kuwait Kannada Koota for giving me the opportunity to participate in the function and also to appreciate their achievements in the field of Kannada Culture and inculcating the same zeal and love for such activities in their children too and express how much I enjoyed the function. I wrote a few lines in Kannada to express my thanks and appreciation which I managed to type.
