Udupi :Multi-lingual actor, producer of various movies Prakash Rai was conferred with the annual Dr. Kota Shivaram Karanth Huttura Prashasti-2017 for his outstanding contribution to the film industry and literature at the Dr. Shivaram Karnath Theam Park, Kota near here on Tuesday, 10th October, 2017.


On the way to Kota via Brahmavar, various organizations leaders were warmly received and welcomed at Santhekatte, Kallianpur with garlanding Prakash Rai. He also rose flowers from the people of the locality.

After receiving the prestigious award, Prakash Rai said that it will be great pride and pleasure to receive the award. I shared the moment with my daughter, mother and my friends. It feels me that I have come as a grandson to my grandfather’s house. Shivaram Karanth worked according to his conscience and he written like he wanted to write. Karanth was the tree which gave shade to many people.


He said that Dr. Shivaram Karanth always gives me a feeling of thrill. If he could write at 96, he is absolutely like a gigantic tree. Yes, some people may speak about Karanth without really knowing nothing about him. There is life in the literature created by Shivaram Karanth. It has forests, life values, and curtness with which truth is told without fear or favour. I have always been a fan of thinking and writings of Shivaram Karanth.


He said that he made up his mind to receive the great honour for me without fear in the midst of criticism and opposition just because he did not want to hurt the feelings of people who like this literacy genius one. We should establish a fearless society for our children. We don’t need a society which to live in fear. If I hurt anyone, please forgive me, he said.

The task of inflicting fear in the minds of people today is being executed in systematic manner. Inflicting a sense of fear is always worse than cruelty. We need to work towards the creation of future good society which is happy. A society in which opinions can be freely expressed without any fear is needed one. Shivaram Karanth surely wanted to do so.


Earlier Anand C Kunder President of Karantha Huttura Prashashti Prathisatana Kota welcomed the gatherings. T. B. Shetty delivered the key note address. Neelavara Surendra Hegde President of Udupi District Kannada Sahitya Parishat inaugurated the programme with lighting the lamp and spoke during the occasion. One of selection committee member U N Shenoy spoke on the Prakash Rai that why the committee chosen for the award and selection process.
