'Take good care of aged parents'

Noted artiste Roopa Iyer stated that old age homes should disappear in the country, while aged parents should be looked after well by their children.

Speaking after inaugurating 'Avva' award presentation ceremony organised by Avva Seva Trust, as part of the eighth death anniversary of Guravva Shivalingappa Horatti, here on Saturday, she noted that the culture of respecting parents should grow.

We need an education that builds our character, and not just our academic knowledge. Such an education helps us to prevent ourselves from committing mistakes. In the present competitive era of urban lifestyle, we should not lose the mentality to respect our parents, she added.

Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce President Sa Ra Govindu observed that North Karnataka region is backward in terms of development. Prime Minister Narendra Modi can resolve Mahadayi dispute in just 24 hours, and he should not play politics in the issue of drinking water, he added.

Sri Panditaradhya Shivacharya Swamiji of Sanehalli, who graced the occasion, highlighted the importance of mother, and the need to take care of aged parents.

Columnist S Shadakshari also spoke. Avva Seva Trust chairman and MLC Basavaraj Horatti, and others were present.
