SBRR Mahajana First Grade College celebrated Basava Jayanti recently at its college premises. Staff and students took part in the celebrations. Emphasising the contributions of social reformer of 12th century, Dr H Sridhar said that Basavanna is not confined to Karnataka but his philosophy is accepted worldwide. “That his statue has been
installed in London is a testimony to his contributions to the society,” he said.
“His contribution through Vachana sahitya impacted common people to come out of superstitious practices. It was imposed by influential class of the society to suit them. Innocent people were being misled through false beliefs and religious customs,” Dr Sridhar explained.
