Radio Mirchi – Please stop speaking Kanglish
Dear RJs of Radio Mirchi,
None of you seem to know Kannada and try to speak Kannada on air. I appreciate that.But I feel all of you need few lessons in Kannada. First grade kid speaks better Kannada than most of you. The language Kanglish (Chowchow bath of 30% Kannada and 70% English) you are trying to promote; doesn’t make any sense to anybody. Neither the Kannadigas nor others understand what you speak on air. Please let me know if you need some lessons on basic Kannada.
It is really irritating to hear something like “nimma … sms madi mattu prize win madi” on air. I wonder what happens to the vocabulary of the kid who listens to radio mirchi. He needs a new grammar class to make sense of it. My parents hate me tuning to radio mirchi. I wonder who is your target audience is? If you think its youth; I am sorry. I don’t listen to it any more .
What I need is either proper Kannada or proper English. In your own language ‘dayavittu simply English athava simply Kannada talk madi’. All the best.
