Envy of Bangalore[edit]

I added a link which I used to see for more that 9 years now and its http://horata.tripod.com/hosur.html and have added the same as a reference in the article. Most probably the article written was by a Banlorian who loves his soil so much, that he hates all other people living and developing Bangalore! Take the content as just a fun as 99% of Kannada speaking Banglorians are not that type - speaking out like this. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 59.92.79.216 (talk) 08:01, 24 May 2010 (UTC)

Hosur and language[edit]

Users have added many languages to the article which I have removed other than Tamil. According to me, even Tamil is not required as people reading English article may not be in need of reading the name in Tamil. Please provide suggestions here. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Akilash (talkcontribs) 02:32, 2 June 2010 (UTC)


You are right, but there is nothing wrong in representing in local languages. Its unfair that u have removed only telugu and kannada. according to you, should have removed tamil also since this article is in english. So my suggestion is keep it in all three local languages, there is nothing wrong in that. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Wikihsr (talkcontribs) 08:05, 4 June 2010 (UTC)

The user who removed the languages might want to have a look at the Featured article of Mangalore, or others like Bellary and Kanyakumari. I do not know why some users get so irritated when they see other languages. The article itself acknowledges that Telugu and Kannada is spoken in the region, so i see good reason why they can stay. Sorry for my revert without having a look at the talk page. I did not notice. Arjuncodename024 08:41, 4 June 2010 (UTC)
Wow! Now an IP address from Tamil Nadu ((59.92.8.135)) has gone on to remove non-Tamil languages from Kanyakumari giving a reason similar to that of the topic starter. Arjuncodename024 13:17, 4 June 2010 (UTC)
Discussion was about some IP and not related to the article and hence I do not respond. Akilash (talk) 04:04, 7 June 2010 (UTC)


I have added a Kannada translation of the name, since the article itself states that Kannada is spoken widely. Please state any objections here. MikeLynch (talk) 12:18, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

---As such I am not against using Telugu and Kannada for Hosur, since these are also spoken widely. But then by the same logic, Tamil should be included in the pages for Kuppam, Kolar, Kollegal and Palakkad. You cannot have one rule for a Border Town in TN and a completely different rule for border towns of negihbouring states with a sizeable Tamil population. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 204.114.196.11 (talk) 14:53, 9 February 2011 (UTC)

The article is fine the way it is, and it will remain protected as long as IPs continue to edit war about the languages. OhNoitsJamie Talk 15:12, 9 February 2011 (UTC)

Edit request on 3 April 2012[edit]

please change the text "Tamil is the most spoken language in Hosur", as the population speaking Telugu and Kannada put together in the city and its periphery are of the same numbers as that of the Tamil language speakers.Native languages of the city have been Telugu,Kannada and a small but significant population of Tamils as is evident from the origin of the city's name.

Some historical facts[edit]

I am new to wikipedia. This is my first comment. I have lived in Hosur during 1957-63 time frame, and studied at the only high school there at that time, namely Board High School, Hosur. My mother tongue is Tamil. We had about 25% of the students in the school studying Tamil and 75% students studying Telugu at that time. Students came from as far as 3 miles around. Though the town was close to Bangalore in terms of connectivity all the villages nearby had Telugu speaking population. They did not make language as a big issue in those days as people seem to make it now. My father was in the sericulture department of the state government, and got transferred from town to town in the old Madras state as linguistic division of states took shape. He was posted in Hindupur, then Kollegal, and finally at Hosur. These towns went to Andhra, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu respectively. As a school student I felt it was more like Andhra than Tamil Nadu, and expecting my father to be transferred out soon. But it did not happen.

The Board High School, Hosur could boast of excellent sports facilities in those days. with, 2 foot ball grounds, one Hockey field, a base ball field, a basket ball ground, badminton courts, volleyball courts, kabaddi ground and so on. But in a recent visit I found all the playgrounds had vanished. The main school building itself seems to be a ruin. This school is where the first Indian Governor General of the Country C Rajagopalachari studied. He was born in a a nearby village called Thorapalli.

The largest water body of Hosur at that time was the eri. The geography did not have too many water bodies. Ragi was the primary grain grown. Roads leading from the town were lined with Tamarind Trees, and the Hosur Tamarind was well known in other parts of the state.

At the foot hill of the Chandrachudeshwara hill temple was the Theradi, the small residential locality through the streets of which the temple car ('Ther' in Tamil) was taken around. This was a great event in those days with thousands thronging the town from nearby villages.

The cattle form and the silk farm were the two major government institutions. The cattle farm used to produce a large quantity of milk. I believe this got changed to a veterinary centre. The Hosur silk farm was the largest silk producing centre within Tamil Nadu. It had mulberry gardens, rearing stations, and reeling centres.

I suggest the prime authors of this article find the reference to these and add them appropriately. Wikineswar (talk) 13:06, 7 October 2012 (UTC)
