Recognition for dedication and commitment

Staff Correspondent



HONOUR:Hanumanthappa being felicitated by the newspaper agents in Bellary on Sunday.

BELLARY: Hanumanthappa, who has been distributing newspapers here for more than four decades here, was felicitated here on Sunday.

Mr. Hanumanthappa is a very popular person among the people and those involved in newspaper industry because of his dedication and commitment to the work.

The number of newspapers he used to distribute every day was around 450, mostly The Hindu and Prajavani. However, of late, he depends on the services of his assistants to distribute some newspapers because of old age.

“On occasions, when the newspapers reached late owing to various reasons, he used to wait till their arrival and was distributing them to respective subscribers without fail,” says Hassan Basha, agent of The Hindu.

It was Mr. Basha who took the initiative to organise the first-ever such function for the local newspaper agents. Giridhar and Shastri of Kannada daily Prajavani were also felicitated. Mr. Hanumanthappa was given a gold ring, presents and a shawl.

Mr. Hanumanthappa recalled how he started distributing The Hindu in 1965. “Even to this day, The Hindu occupies the first position among the newspapers I distribute, followed by Prajavani and others,” he says. N. Veerbhadragowda, president of the Bellary Journalists' Guild, commended the newspaper agents for recognising the services of Mr. Hanumanthappa. Sonta Giri, agent of Prajavani, circulation executives of some local newspapers and other hawkers participated in the function.
