Udupi: Sediyapu Award for ‘Shatavadhani’ R Ganesh

Daijiworld Media Network – Udupi (SP)

Udupi, May 16: Shatavadhani, Dr R Ganesh, has been chosen for the ‘Sediyapu Award’ for the year 2010, informed Prof Heranje Krishna Bhat, director of Rashtrakavi Govinda Pai Research Centre here.

Ganesh, who was born in 1962, has completed engineering degree, postgraduate degree in Sanskrit and DLitt in Kannada. He has scholarly grip over many subjects, and hence, is able to conduct ‘Shatavadhanas’. The diversity of subjects over which he has written his 35 published books, is surprising, Bhat said. He also explained that Ganesh, who has command over science, literature, art, religious scriptures and many other subjects, has also contributed to Yakshagana immensely by being the director of the solo Yakshagana performances of Mantapa Prabhakar Upadhyaya and by writing prose for them.

Dr R Ganesh, whose lectures on various subjects are available in CD form, has earned several awards and honours so far. The Sediyapu award will be conferred on him at a function being held in Karkala in association with Karkala Sahitya Sangha on June 8, he revealed.

    Dear sir Im enamored and extremely thrilled and have a series of scintillating horripilation to find this article or Sriyuta Dr. R Ganesh I was foolish enough not to have maintained contact with the master despite having being his student in a random lecture in MES College Bangalore once in Year 2000. I request to give me light and mail me sir’s email and contacts.
    I request you earnestly to guide me back to God head = my teacher.
