South Indians in Kolkata

P. Thankappan Nair (Author)
Synopsis South Indians in Kolkata evaluates the contributions of the Kannadigas, Konkanis, Malayalees, Tamilians and Telugus to the cultural panorama and cosmopolitanism of this great metropolis in its historical perspective. Ballala Sen and other Sena rulers of Bengal in the 11th-13th century came from Karnataka. The Mysore Garden is the contribution of the Kannadigas to Calcutta. Idli, dosa, Rasam, etc. also are their contribution to the world. The Konkanis produced Vijay Mallya and other industrialists. Swami Ranganathananda, the living authority of Vedanta, is a Malayalee. The Tamilians made Calcutta the cradle of scientific research by producing Sir C.V. Raman, the only Nobel Laureate in Physics from India. The Telugus produced Dr. s. Radhakrishnan, a former President of India. Dr. C.R. Rao, the authority on Statistics, is the product of Calcutta. South Indians who have no vested interest in Calcutta are the marginal men of the metropolis, but their contribution in making Calcutta the Intellectual Capital of India, is unique.
