Tribute to Shivaram Karanth

A Tribute to Karanth

© K. L. Kamat
Dr. Shivaram Karath
Shivaram Karanth
 Kannada Writer, Novelist, Artist, Educator, Art Critic, Dancer, Philosopher, Environmentalist.

"I've always been confused about you two. Now that both of you are here together, my confusion is doubled!" Dr. Karanth joked as I paid him a visit in Puttur along with Dr. Suryanath Kamath.  I gave him a photograph of his, which I had taken 40 years ago, as a boy, during the Kumta Sahitya Sammelan. I even pointed to his hands in the photograph which were hiding a box of tobacco and his comments at that time. He burst out into a Yakshagana style laughter!

Dr. Karanth inspired several generations of youngsters to love and preserve our art, heritage and environment. His works on children's education done seventy years ago are still unequalled in Kannada language. In his death, Karnataka has lost one of its foremost sons.
