'Shun inferiority complex about profession'

'Shun inferiority complex about profession'

No one should develop inferiority complex about his or her profession, advised Additional Deputy Commissioner M Sathish Kumar. 

He was speaking after inaugurating the annual meeting of the Savita community at the Melinagowda Community in Madikeri on Tuesday. 

“Although the caste system was based on the profession one followed in the older days, there was no discrimination among professions. In the 12th century, Basavanna declared, ‘Kaayakave Kailasa’, meaning work is worship. Success is guaranteed in the profession if one carries out his or her duties with utmost dedication. If the people of the Savita community do not play the auspicious band set on pious occasions, the programme would be incomplete. There is great demand for the work and the people from the Savita community must utilise the facilities made available to them by the government. People from the community must provide education to their children,” he added.

Community leader Thammaih, who delivered the keynote address, opined that united efforts are required to eliminate the discrimination against the people of the community.

Savita community Mysuru district unit president Nagaraj said that education and unity are essential for any community to develop. “Without the required educational qualification, the reservation would be of no help. Hence, all people in the community should provide education to their students,” he advised.

“The Savita community needs to be strengthened in the state. The presidents of the district units have been elected unanimously,” he added.

Savita community Mysuru district organising secretary Bharat, Kodagu district unit president Venkatesh, women’s unit president Radhamma, leaders Nagesh, Puttaraj, H S Indrakumar, Avinash, Madhu and Charan were present.
