Kannada Rajyothsava: Karnataka Formation Day

On this day of November first in 1956 (೧೯೫೬) Mysore state, comprising most of the area of the erstwhile princely state of Mysore, was merged with the Kannada speaking areas of the Bombay and Madras presidencies, as also of the principality of Hyderabad, to create a unified Kannada-speaking subnational entity. The newly unified state initially retained the name "Mysore", which was that of the erstwhile princely state which formed the core of the new entity. .....
