HUBLI: Women folk are set to rule the country in the future, said noted journalist Patil Puttappa. Releasing books on the first day of the three-day 12th All India Poetess’ Conference here on Friday, Puttappa said, women folk suffered harassment in family and society. Now with the change of time, women are set to lead, he said.

In the past, there was  dominance by Brahmins, followed by warriors and industrialists. Now women are prepared to dominate, he said. He asked men to provide opportunities for women to serve the society and the country.

He also said that women’s role is important in maintaining peace and cordial life. Commending the work of Shilpa Shettar, wife of Minister Jagadish Shettar, in organising the mega event, Puttappa said, women of the state would soon see her addressing them as a minister in the future.

Presiding over the function, Jagadish Shettar said every person needs to have a poet’s heart. Saying that majority of the politicians lack poet’s heart, he termed former prime minister A B Vajapayee as a  renowned poet who ‘awakened’ people through his poems.

He said the state is concerned about all round development of the region. Hubli would soon see Kala Grama and Janapada Loka, he informed.

Inaugurating the event, former minister Leeladevi Prasad elaborated the contributions of poetess from the time of Akkamahadevi.

Prof Lari Azad, founder of AIPC, spoke on the occasion.
