Speaking at a two-day workshop on Kannada research, he said the inscriptions which were unearthed in Karnataka were unique and different when compared to those found in other states. The researchers should take keen interest in studying the inscriptions. More than one thousand inscriptions were unearthed in Kodagu itself. There was a need to study the same.
 
Dr Kondareddy said Karnataka was ruled by Rashtrakuta, Chalukya, Hoysala and Vijayanagara empires. The rulers have left behind inscriptions which have a legacy and give insight into the kind of society that existed during that era.

Kannada Sahithya Parishat honorary President Pundalika Halambi released ‘Mathomme keluthidare’ a collection of short stories written by Kariya Kudiya.

He said “Kannada Sahithya Parishat has given emphasis to research. The state government is planning to start English medium schools in every hobli. The Kannada Sahithya Parishat will collect opinions from the public after the state government makes its stand clear on the English medium school.”

Mysore district Kannada Sahithya Parishat President Maddigere Gopala also spoke. District Kannada Sahithya Parishat President T P Ramesh said several pro Kannada programmes will be organised in the district.

The district Kannada Sahithya Parishat has 1080 members. Researcher Dr M G Nagaraju among others were present.
