“Sir M Vishveshvaraiah is inscripted in our hearts for his immense achievements,” said A S Satish, vice-president of IEI Kolkata.
He was speaking after inaugurating the seminar on ‘Contributions of Sir M V to Kannada literature and Karnataka’ organised by Mysore District Kannada Sahitya Parishat women’s unit in collaboration with Sri Nataraja Women’s Residential First Grade College, at its premises, recently.
“Sir MV’s far-sighted thinking in doing his works is special for even today’s world and we are blessed to have such a great soul and must be proud that he was born in Karnataka,” said Satish.
Dr Malali Vasantakumar, senior scholar, said that the workspace of Sir M V is enormous and he played a very important role in the birth of Kannada Sahitya Parishat. “If we want a permanent solution for Cauvery water, our state should transform into a new country,” he opined.
K Raghuram, an eloquent and a social servant, asserted that Sir M V has made himself familiar all over the world and the whole world is lauding him for his brilliant works.
“There has been a severe verbal dispute for KRS water (a major contribution of Sir M V) between the two states and the only evident solution for this will be to build a dam across Mekedhatu,” opined the chief guest of the programme, former Ka Sa Pa president Maddikere Gopal.
Ka Sa Pa women unit district president Lathamohan, Akhila Karnataka Parisara Jagruti vedike state president T Mahadevaswamy and others were present.
