The books ‘Kapile Haridalu Kadalige’ and ‘Charithreya Putakke Ondu Tippani’ were released by Writer K. Veerabhadrappa.
Releasing the books, Veerabhadrappa opined that the Union Government should honour the multi-lingual society of the country instead of attempting to enforce compulsory learning of the national language Hindi. He added that such a compulsion in Southern States would have repercussion on the government.
He pointed out that a good writer should voice against harassment on women and the downtrodden. He commended the works of Prof. Maleyuru Guruswamy, which highlights the achievement of a Devadasi woman Nagarathnamma from Nanjangud which speaks on respect for Devadasis. He added that Nagarathnamma became a great musician in Tamil Nadu and strove for the welfare of Devadasis and also excelled as a writer.
