‘Bureaucracy is a big let down’

‘Bureaucracy is a big let down’

October 18, 2017

Mysuru: Pandit Rajeev Taranath has grown as an institution in many respects. However, all efforts to bring to notice the problems that a person of his calibre is facing at this stage in his life to the Higher Education Minister has come to naught, said former Minister Prof. B.K. Chandrashekar.

He was speaking at the 85th birthday celebrations of Pandit Taranath here last evening. “In the Universities all kinds of things are happening. Many things that should not be done are being done. However, when it comes to Pandit Taranath, they have ignored him. The bureaucracy is going from bad to worse,” he said expressing his displeasure.

“It was a great experience for students like us to hobnob with the likes of Pandit Rajeev Taranath, Gopala Krishna Adiga, U.R. Ananthamurthy, Polanki Ramamurthy and Damodar Rao in the Coffee House. I learnt English and gained knowledge about Hindustani music from Rajeev. It is because of their influence that I experimented by introducing music from third standard when I was the Education Minister,” he recalled.
