Poet and Jnanpith awardee Dr Chandrashekara Kambara released a collection of poems in English titled A Mirror to My Self authored by S Parashivamurthy, who is visually impaired recently. After the release, Dr Kambara said, “ A government which doesn’t work for the welfare of the blind is a bad government. The visually impaired are very talented and it is the duty of the government to bring them to the main stream but the authorities are doing nothing in this regard.”

He further added,"Going through the collection of poems by S Parashivamurthy it is evident that his eyes are wide open even though he is blind. Normal people have two eyes to see the world whereas Parashivamurthy has two eyes with which he can see the inner world.”
