"Kamat is one of the great souls who found peace in this life itself; so asking for peace in his afterlife, seems absurd to me."
- Suresh Kulkarni, Writer, Friend
"Krishnanand's reminiscence is a sacred reminiscence to me."
- K. V. Subbanna
"Kamat did not just enrich the Kannada language; he enriched the knowledge of the language"
- R. Seshasastry
"Now who will make pickles for me"?
"Jyotsna and Krishnanand were more than a couple.
They were celestial lovers (Sakhi-Sakha)"
"During my childhood he had taken a beautiful
photograph (black & white) of mine and he was courteous enough to send
the same to me from Bangalore through Pradeep. It was the best
photograph of my life..."
"Krishnanand must have truly believed that a receiving hand is always lower to a giving one. He is the only one I know who worked months for a government project (The Gazetteer of Uttara Kannada), and yet refused payment. His love for his land was enormous."
"I grew up reading his books and his contribution to India was great. He ventured into places where no one else before him have ever dared to go with camera. His books and now this website is treasure trove of information which you can not find anywhere else."
- Ganesh Prasad, Santa Clara, Admirer
"Krishnananda Mama was an ideal man.. He was the one who made our family elate. He was very disciplined and simple person. He was an excellent photographer. His death was a sudden and unexpected shock."
-Mamata Kamat, Grand Niece
"Anarkali Seema - he'd call me. The void left by him will never be filled again. He was simplicity personified. Always cheerful, he never failed in lifting others' spirit. He possessed one of the rarest qualities, he would listen to people! I still treasure the pictures of me taken by him."
-Seema Kamat, Niece
I've known Krishnanand since my college days... He was not only a good friend but a
philosopher and a guide to me. Whenever I was bored or down in spirit,
I used to spend some time with him. He was a man with no malice.
He was an upright, straight, and an honest man... full of jokes and anecdotes.
-Manohar Kamat, a long time friend
The fact that a man like Kamat lived amongst us itself is a matter of great pride and inspiration to us.
- Dr. Kamala Hemmige (in Vijaya Karnataka Newspaper March 3, 2002)
Kamat had great concern of our society and environment. In his death, we have lost one of the foremost personalities of our (Uttara Kannada) district.
- Prof. P.M. Hedge (during a tribute in Sirsi, Udayavani, March 5, 2002)
