Litterateur Nadoja Dr Chennaveera Kanavi’s good nature and down to earth personality has helped him to raise this height, said noted writer Dr H S Venkateshamurthy here on Friday.
He was addressing during the release of book ‘Hoovu Horaluvavu sooryana kadege’ by Dr Kanavi. Addressing the gathering Dr H S V said, “Dr Chennaveera Kanavi is one of the endearing poets in the Kannada literary world. Writers G S Shivarudrappa, K S Narasimhachar and Chennaveera Kanavi have always been remembered for their valuable contribution to the Kannada Literature. He is one of the very few personalities who had the potential of taking the Kannada literature to the whole new world.”
“It is good to see politicians taking part in the book release events and encouraging the writers. Politicians need to have an interest towards literature and art,” he added.
Sugar and Cooperation Minister Mahadevprasad, Writers T S Chayapathi, Basanth Kumar, former MUDA chairman K R Mohan Kumar and others were present.
