    It is quite interesting to learn Kannada words. Interestingly very few words seem to be having commonality with Hindi words. And also many words which end with 't' in Hindi seem to be ending in 'th' in Kannada. For example, welcome - Suswagatha (Suswagata in Hindi). Are such words pronounced accordingly or the pronunciation is same in Kannada? How do you pronounce 'Latha'? Is it like 'Lata' in Hindi. It is surprising that India has so many languages, some not having much in common. How did these language develop in the same country? But still we are one in spite of all diversities. Unity in diversity. Long live our unity.
