Edn in mother tongue: File review petition before SC'

Kendra Sahitya Academy awardee Litterateur K Veerabhadrappa has opined the need for filing a review petition before the Supreme Court asking to review its stand on the issue of providing education in mother tongue.

Veerabhadrappa  was speaking after inaugurating the fourth Taluk Sahitya Sammelana at Hoysala Highschool premises at Gonibeedu in Mudigere taluk on Thursday.

From every angle, Kannada is the richest of all languages in the world.

All the 52 alphabets of Kannada have the power to give happiness. It is said that Kannada language is on the verge of extinct.

But, in reality, Kannada still enjoys the positions in the hearts of Kannadigas, he said.

“No other language can give education as effective as in mother tongue. From the days of Gurukula system, it has proved time and again that mother tongue is the best way to educate a child. Though another medium is used for instruction due to the competitive world, the quality of learning is achieved through mother tongue,” he said.

The litterateur also stressed on stopping the process of appointing officials who have no goodwill towards Kannada, to the key-posts of universities.

Appointing such people will only harm Kannada.

MLA B B Ninagaih flagged off and inaugurated Bhuvaneshwari Circle at Chinniga.

A colourful procession was carried out prior to the formal programme of Taluk Sahitya Sammelana.
