NICE to donate one day collections to zoo

Present society forgets to follow Basavannas philosophy

NICE managing director Ashok Kheny announced that toll collected from NICE roads on June 5 would be donated as assistance to the zoo.

He was speaking at the valedictory of Basava jayanthi celebrations held at Kalamandira here on Wednesday.

Observing that people were showing interest in conserving the environment, Kheny said donation would be given to the zoo on the occasion of World Environment Day.

Commenting on the recent Kannada movie ‘Prasad’, he said the boy who has acted in the movie can neither speak nor hear. But, he has shown that once they are given encouragement they can perform on par with others. Even foriegners have appreciated the movie, he added.

Kheny said he was following Basavanna’s words of coexisting peacefully along with others.
MLA H S Mahadev Prasad said the 12th century was unforgettable as Basavanna had called to do away with caste. The present society is forgetting Basavanna’s philosophy. They are using Basavanna’s words only for publicity.

Suttur mutt seer sri Shivarathri Deshikendra Swamiji was present.
