“Early 70s was a decade of cultural transition. Thippeswamy dreamt of starting a folklore museum. He made it a reality and made people understand it. He wanted it to be a study centre for the generations to come. He did a field survey in Shivamogga, Chitradurga, Chikkamagaluru, Nagamangala and other places. We can study folklore at this museum,” he added.
