“Prof Nissar Ahmed is loved by all because of his Nithyotsava poem. He has contributed Kannada literature with rich write-ups. He stayed away from the borders of caste and religion and remained as a great poet,” said District Kannada Sahitya Parishat president Dr Y D Rajanna.
“He has written 21 poetry collections, 14 thoughtful works, 5 children’s literature, 13 edited works. He was made the president of Kannada Sahitya Sanmelana as well. He received Kendra Sahitya Academy award, Karnataka Sahitya Academy award, Rajyothsava Award and other awards as well,” he added.
