Writers, don’t leave our kids alone: Governor

BELLARY: The Governor has issued a clarion call for the production of more attractive books in Kannada for children so that they might develop a taste for reading and owning books. He was speaking after inaugurating the Kannada Sahitya Sammelan here yesterday, and remarked there was not much children’s literature in Kannada.

The Governor also urged writers to work for the unity of people in Karnataka. While commending the services of the sammelan in the integration of the different Kannada areas to form the State, he reminded the writers and publishers of their duties and responsibilities towards the promotion of the welfare of society.

Oops, sorry, that’s not yesterday as in yesterday, but yesterday 50 years ago.

And that was not the Governor of Karnataka, Rameshwar Thakur, but the Governor of Mysore, Jayachamarajendra Wodeyar, at the 40th sahitya sammelan.

But surely you get the point?
