Mysuru, January 16:- Writer and daughter of Rashtrakavi Kuvempu, Tarini Chidananda attended a programme organised by the Department of Kannada of SBRR Mahajana First Grade College to mark 50 years of Jnanapeetha award for Sri Ramayana Darshanam by Kuvempu recently.

“Kuvempu did not see the world as separate aspects but as a whole. Sri Ramayana Darshanam is an awakened sense. It should reach youths more,” said writer H R Sujatha.
