Comment on Mysore Vasudevacharya’s home comes alive to the music its walls heard 50 or 75 or 100 years ago by YADUPATI PUTTY

Thanks for the fine write-up. However, I would like to clarify that the task accomplished so far has not been done solely by we Puttys. Our guiding spirit has been Vid. Vaidyanathan and co-enthusiasts have been a few of our friends, Sri Mohana Krishna and Sri Shamanna, in particular. These people have shared the burden of the work and financial implications too. Many others have cooperated with us in the task and a lot more have provided the much needed moral support. It has all been a voluntary service for a cause, the cause of Culture, Kannada and 'vidya' . Its hoped more will join us in the campaign. - Yadupathi



Comment on “To kill me or hang me as they do in the Middle East”: a ‘fatwa’ on Kancha Ilaiah for a book chapter by Bhamy V. Shenoy

Any one with some some values would be enraged, shocked and finally saddened to read this Lerner by Kanch Ilaiah. Enraged because on one has the right to threaten another human being for any reason and least of all for writing an article. We still have freedom of speech. Shocked because how an MP can make this kind of offensive statement even as a mere threat. How did the ruling party Telangana has not taken any stand or taken appropriate step against the uncivilized behavior of the MP. Saddened because why the media has not taken this story the way other stories are taken, What are they waiting for? Let me also hasten to write that the esteemed author could have taken Gandhian stand and taken pity on the MP who apparently is not familiar with freedom of speech or India's civilization all values of not threatening to kill another human being. Will such a principled stand be in the larger interest of the nation which is unable manage increasing intolerance?

Mr Shepherd's sense of self-importance is of messianic proportions, and he writes in a language with which he hasn't much inwardness. Thanks for "loosely editing" it, Churumuri. This not to say that TDP M.P.'s mindset is, of course,not barbaric.

As rightly indicated Gauri was a privileged press woman. She used her contact cleverly to be in touch with power that be. Editor of a small tabloid whose circulation never cro ssed a thousand and convicted by a lower court pushed to a great height by vested interests.Her naxal connections are to be investigated thoroughly to get her involvement of cases which might be of grave concern.



Comment on First Twitter handle in the world to ask if Narendra Modi will be PM now asks if he will be a good Opposition leader by Iqbal Narain

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 12:31:37 +0000

Legitimate questions perhaps too much too soon. That PM over-promised and is too much of himself will be stating the obvious. Beyond that, he has not delivered any worse than the UPA coalition before him. Nor can one read too much into a one-off lecture by RG to an educated, youth audience in the west. The fact that Congress internet publicity has suddenly rattled the powers that be is of course there to see.By the way, what are Churumuri's credentials?



Comment on What 15 litres of water and a bucket tell us about Narayana Murthy’s ‘terror’ by Pulikeshi the Last

Unrelated to the issue on hand. The Sikkapatte Important Company family, as many know, sponsors the Harvard University Press project of translating Hindu classics into English. The project's title: Murty Classical Library of India. At first I thought there was a spelling error. I was wrong.

Kudos to the brothers who have taken up the task of restoration on to their own. It is the work of the govt. to take up such works.But where is the govt.???had it been the house of a politician or a speritual leader of their own, they would have mobilised all resources to restore and preserve. It would not be out of pace to suggest organising a fund collection through your column .......

Excellent work. Thanks Chrurumuri for sharing. Such information is ignored by the media and does not reach people.

Kudos to the brothers. Great job. Reviving the great cultural heritage, what the Government has failed to do and neglecting as well. See Lansdowne Building and Devaraja Market. They want it to collapse.

To paraphrase John Donne, a forefather of Kannada navya poetry by proxy, no person is an island and the demise of any member of society diminishes us all. Gauramma's untimely death is a loss to us all, left, right, center, and directionless. That being said, a few murmurs about the patently ersatz "I am Gauri" proclamation, the glorification of the presumably well-healed editor of a tabloid generally devoid of civility, predictably intoxicated by the scent of scandal, fondly equating a non-nuanced grasp of liberationism with pouring vitriolic scorn on followers of one religion or caste, without taking into account the glaring fact that religions other than Hinduism in India have no better track record of promoting personal liberties maybe pertinent. First, the byline for this outpouring of grief and call to a show of solidarity is Churumuri. I do not want to think that Churumuri is synonymous with KP, one of our best informed and incisive journalists. His style, wit, and sophisticated expression are a model to all our English language journalists. If KP is indeed the architect of the stuff I have just read above, I would have to say that his discernment has temporarily absconded. Gauri Lankesh, contrary to Churumuri's assertion was no friend of us all, especially the section of women denied all rights by religion. It required large amounts patience to read her diatribic and uncouth prose, unmoderated by wisdom or a basic understanding of how an anarchic democracy founded on mimicked institutions works. It wasn't important to her for she was a child of privilege. She had access to people in power. It is but one of the thousands of anamolies of Indian politics that even those not in charge of governance can direct a government's course of action. In the current paranoid delusion of India anyone who even shows an interest in understanding Naxalism promptly starts living in the shadow of police surveillance.Not so Gauri Lankesh. She openly hobnobbed with self-declared Naxals, and, yet plied her tabloid trade undisturbed, and she never had to explain her actions to anybody. (For comparison: Keep in mind the asthmatic death of poor Snehalatha Reddy whose only crime was being a socialist in practice. Also recall that none of our leading intellectuals who are at least partly responsible for Siddaramayya's ascension to power are known to have openly expressed their distress about our loss of civil liberties under Shrimathi Gandhi's autocratic rule.) Second, the claim that this is a political murder, a warning to those who exercise their freedom of speech and those who seek to be the voice of the oppressed. All this while no motive has been established for the killing and no suspects have bee identified? Time out of mind, we are reminded of the obvious: The Right abhors progressivism. But that does not in any way provide a syllogistic framework to conclude the killer of Shrimathi Gauri was a hired gun of the Right or a rabid archaic ideologist. Should we at least not have enough time to mourn and see how the investigation of the killing moves forward? Now the last murmur, Isn't extremism, whether Right or Left, bereft of reason?
