BANGALORE: “Contemporary literature and writers should make readers Vishwamanava (Citizens of the world) by contributing significant literature, as done by Rashtrakavi Kuvempu and Jnanpith awardee, Dr Chandrashekar Kambar “, observed Justice S R Nayak, Chairman of the Karnataka State Commission for Human Rights.
He was speaking at a programme organised by Bharatha Yuva Kendra here on Saturday on the eve of Makara Sankranti. Dr Kambar and his wife were also felicitated.
Nayak said, “Dr Kambar is like a ‘Shoodratapasvi’ (Shoodra’s saint) who is known for giving folk touch to his writing as well as portraying cultural aspects along with humanity. I have noticed that many writers are writing irrelevant literature, which is dividing the society. Such literature is shortlived and it fails to give significant message to the literary world.” Singer Shimoga Subbanna sang the title song of the movie Kaadu Kudure. MP Cheluvaraya Swami, film producer M Krishnappa and classical singer Shyamal G Bhave were present.
