|>> Why is CID clueless even after a year?|
For C Vijaykumar, son of writer Dr M M Kalburgi, the day starts with reading vachanas and knowing their meaning, which is exactly how his father started the day.
“After my father was killed, the atmosphere in the house was different. But now we are all trying our best to create the atmosphere which existed when my father was around. The family members sit together to recite vachanas and also discuss their meanings,” he says.
The family has been preparing to release the pending works of Kalburgi, which include plays, writings and research. Kalburgi’s daughter too has joined hands in bringing out her father’s unprinted works.
“We plan to release the eighth edition of Margha, a collection of Kalburgi’s writings. Several students of Kalburgi and publishers are working on it. Tentatively, we will come out with the eight edition by November,” Vijaykumar adds.
Why is probe taking this long?
The slow moving investigation has left Kalburgi’s family upset. Both the chief minister and the home minister had visited Kalburgi’s residence and informed the family about the progress of investigation. However, no breakthrough has been achieved so far.
Vijaykumar says, “I have contacted the investigating officers several times, but the only reply I get is that the probe is heading in the right direction and that nothing else can be revealed.
“I also don’t know why the investigation is taking this long. But we have faith in the government and the investigation agencies. We are still looking forward to justice.”
