How to make paper lantern - Happy Diwali

This was the project my kid did on Diwali . It came up very well and he was very happy to see it hanging in our frontyard . I thought of sharing this with everybody..Below are the instructions and video..
1 : Attach two end of the paper (at the Longer ends) and then roll the paper into a cylinder (at the Longer ends) and glue it.
2 : Take another paper fold it in half lengthwise.
3 : Cut strips in toward the folded flap. Space the cuts about 1/2 inch to 1 inch apart. Spacing is to your preference. To make cuts even, you may want to mark your cuts first. Leave about 1 inch of a margin (this is where you will glue your lantern).
4 : Glue both ends of this paper and stick it to the cylinder from top to bottom.. Repeat this procedure for more..
5 : Take another paper and cut it length wise about 1 inch width. This will be used as a tail for the lantern.. Glue them at the end of the cylinder

Brief Introduction to Kannada Language...

Kannada is one of the major Dravidian languages of India, spoken predominantly in the state of Karnataka. People who speak Kannada are called Kannadigas.

The Kannada language is written using the Kannada script. The language uses forty-nine phonemic letters, divided into three groups: Swaragalu (vowels - thirteen letters); Yogavaahakagalu ( Not vowel, Not Consonant, last two letters, am and ah ); and Vyanjanagalu (Consonants - thirty-four letters).

Brief introduction to Kannada language

Vowels (Swaras) Vowels are the independently existing letters which are called Swaras. They are-

There are two types of Swaras depending on the time used to pronounce. They are Hrasva Swara and Deerga Swara.

Hrasva Swara

A freely existing independent vowel which can be pronounced in a single matra time (matra kala) also called as a matra. They are-

Deergha Swara A freely existing independent vowel which can be pronounced in two matras. They are-


Visarga ಅಃ

Avagraha Also called as Plutha, which is used for the third matra either in a consonant or a vowel.

Consonants (Vyanjanas) These are dependent on vowels to take a independent form of the Consonant. These can be divided into Vargeeya and Avargeeya.

Vargeeya Vyanjanas

Avargeeya Vyanjanas

Basic Language Rule in Kannada

When a dependent consonant combines with an independent vowel, a Akshara is formed.

Consonant (Vyanjana) + Vowel (matra) ---> Letter (Akshara)

Example: ಕ್ + --->

Based on this rule we can combine all the Consonants (Vyanjanas) with the existing Vowels (matra)

to form Kagunitha for Kannada alphabet.
