Mumbai, Sep 24: Dr Vishwanath Karnad Abhinandana Samiti of Mumbai, released a book in recognition of five-decades of Dr Vishwanath Karnad’s literary work, during the function held at Dr M Vishveshwarayya Auditorium of Karnataka Sangh, Matunga (West) here on Sunday September 22.

Renowned Kannada litterateur and poet Ambatanaya Mudrady presided over and released the book titled ‘Samaloka” on the occasion.

“The trio of patriot Sadashiv Karnad, Girish Karnad and Vishwanath are famous in the country. Vishwanath has earned recognition by his hard work. He is as hard working as Vishwamithra was. Though he had no dreams, he had a clear mind. However, I believe that he has set an example to others by his work,” said Mudrady.

Bangalore based former chairman of Janapad and Yakshagana Academy, Dr Kale Gowda Nagavara, delivered the address congratulating the author. He explained his friendship with Karnad and how it grew. He praised Karnad’s interest in research and fair mind that made him a unique writer.

Metro based Billava Association president L V Amin and Goregaon Karnataka Sangh president Ramesh Shetty Payyar were the guests of honour.

Dr Karnad did his PhD on migration after having migrated to Mumbai, said L V Amin.

Karnad in his speech said that he has only done his duty as a part of life. “Though dreams are necessary in Mumbai which is called money land, I had no dreams. Knowing the achievements of Kannadigas is by itself a great achievement,” he said.

Abhinandana Samiti president Dr S K Bhavani, honorary secretary Mundkoor Surendra Salian, book honorary editor Dr G N Upadhya, treasurer Vidhyanand Karkera and Dr Bharat Kumar Polipu were present on the dais.

A seminar on Dr Karnad’s literary contributions was held on the occasion. Renowned columnist, publisher and Professor Vishunu Naik chaired the seminar. Dr A Subanna Rai spoke on Dr Karnad’s realistic literature.  Dr Sunita M Shetty spoke on translation. Yajnaseni and Dr Gananat Yekkar spoke on stories and novels.

Harish K Hejamady compered the programme.
