| "Kammatiga" Released|
A memorial volume honoring Bappa was released by Dr. M.Chidanandamurthy in Bangalore on January 11th. Many great names in Kannada literature attended. Among those who assembled (that I noticed) were Nettur Srinivas Rao, Suryanath Kamath, Jayant Kaikini, Nemichandra, Gayatri, Ramakant Joshi, and Hemalata Mahishi. The hall was full and many guests had to stand during the entire function. I met many people whom I had known only electronically or had only heard of. There were artists, musicians, photographers, and editors of newspapers. It was a wonderful function organized by admirers of Kamat, and I felt their adulation of father had now been transferred on to me. Indeed, many people sought my autograph on the book!
Copies of the book can be purchased from Kamadhenu Pustaka Bhavan in Bangalore for an introductory price of Rs.100 (US$2.00) It has been published by Kamat Memorial Trust, Honavar which has been established to perpetuate the works of K.L.Kamat.
My Article in Vijaya Karnataka
Popular Kannada daily "Vijaya Karnataka" (circulation 700,000) carried my article in last Sunday's supplement (Jan 11th). That's my first publication in Kannada language. Thanks to all who have encouraged me to write more in Kannada.
