‘Teach children importance of Kannada’

Staff Correspondent

Need to have uniform education policy stressed

Udupi: Pradeep Kumar Kalkura, president of Dakshina Kannada district Kannada Sahitya Parishat, said on Sunday that children at schools should be taught the importance of Kannada language. He was speaking at the valedictory of the “Makkala dhwani” programme organised by Dakshina Kannada Makkala Sangama here.

Mr. Kalkura said there should be a uniform education policy to protect and promote Kannada language. Children who did not know Kannada writers knew about Harry Potter. Any progress bereft of the ethos of the State could not be termed as progress in real sense, Mr. Kalkura said. MLA K. Raghupati Bhat, president of Udupi district Kannada Sahitya Parishath; U.C. Holla, writer Shantharaj Aithal; convener of Udupi Consumer Forum K. Damodar Aithal; president of the Makkala Sahitya Sammelan Sandhya Koteshwar; and managing trustee of Ambalpady temple N.B. Vijay Ballal were present.
