Many of us know very little about independent Karnataka's political history beyond a few events and anecdotes. We often know more about the Mysore administration or about Independent India's history, but not that of our own state.Professor A Narayana of Azim Premji University is on Episode 73 of the Thale-Harate Kannada Podcast to help rectify this gap in our public knowledge. He talks to hosts Ganesh Chakravarthi and Pavan Srinath about the first half of independent Karnataka's political history from 1947 till 1984.Dr. Narayana walks listeners through the early politics of state formation, the power and influence of large communities in the state, and a characteristic streak of political opposition that has lasted through the length of Karnataka's political history.ಫಾಲೋ ಮಾಡಿ.
