Shivarudrappa presented Rashtrakavi Award The poet was honoured with the award as part of the Suvarna Karnataka celebrations at a function organised by the Kannada and Culture Department.

GSS to get Rs 5,000 monthly honorarium In a sudden move, the State government has withdrawn its earlier order of giving Rs 10 lakh as cash award to the Rashtrakavi and decided to extend only a monthly honorarium of Rs 5,000.

    Oh frst comment nandu,

    Kannada Sahitya SammelaNa nadeyitturuva ee shubha sandarBhadalli nadige kavya shreeemantike kotta kaviya bagge lekhana arthapoorna.

    But, i heard that the cash award declared earlier (during announcements) for this great poet has been reduced by the Government , i m not aware of the complete detials, if this is true, its a shameful act. Democratic government (Peoples rep) should be responsible for acknowledging the contributions of its people and providing them enough facilities. Today India and our state is known outside for its history, culture and talented resources. If local governments do not recognize them, then who else will?? Mahan Chetana Kavi Abdul Karim Kahn passed away without proper medical treatment, he didnt even get a site allotment and a home in our great state, shame….

    Yes bellur, I got to know about that little later, it was indeed a happy news that the original award which was announced is being given

    I do wish, more then just honouring writers and poets and getting away with it, someone ( the state admin) actually bothers to read their works……..else they will end up in the many dusty shelves of unused public libraries to rot……
