Does any state Government celebrate any 'Jayanti' to pay respect to Raja Krishnadevaraya?Unfortunately I have not got much opportunity to study formal/academic history. I could study history up to Xth standard. Thereafter, I had to discontinue this subject. However, whatever little I studied history, I found that Raja Krishnadevaraya was a great ruler of medieval India. He was the emperor of a very prosperous kingdom; no neighboruing king or sultan dared to attack him. The prosperity of his kingdom was described by two Portuguese travelers named Domingo Paes and Fernao Nuniz.
Raja Krishnadevaraya was benefited by the wisdom of his astute prime minister, Timmarusu. His army was very powerful. He developed an extensive spy network to get advance information about the plans and programmes of his enemies.
The great ruler was born at Hampi in Karnataka in 1471 and died in December 1529, again in the same city. His kingdom was spread over a large area of southern part of India including present Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Telengana. His capital was at Hampi.
Only day before yesterday, Karnataka Government celebrated the 'Jayanti' of a mass-murderer, sorry, freedom-fighter, on a grand scale. Does Karnataka Government celebrate the Jayanti of Raja Krishnadevaraya, who was born and used to rule from Hampi, a part of Karnataka? Does any other State Government celebrate 'Raja Krishnadevaraya Jayanti'?
