    Abstract

    The kidnapping of Rajkumar has produced various kinds of popular arguments for new cultural agendas in relation to the Kannada language, so salient in the portrayal of an embattled Kannada identity. Central to these anxieties is the recurrent theme of masculinity in crisis. In the texts examined by the author, the 'manhood' of the defenders of the endangered language is a subject of heated discussion.
