      I Appreciate very much the the valuable contribution to the Kannada literature by SMT. KAMALAHAMPANA MADAM.But few days back along with some PERVERTED INTALACTALS she has commented eminent social activist Shri Annahajare in the bad taste which doesn't suits to such a high level scholar. If it was uttered bythe other pervertedand lunatic participants,like AKSUBBAIAH , DWARKANATH ETC, on the same dais we can easily accept because they are meant for such loose talks. But I feel very much disgusted to read the unwarranted comments by her on Annaji.Further I also astonished when did Kamala madm became C.B.I.Investigating officer to collect so much false information on Annaji . My sincere request to madam please don't join with such mindless loose talkers in future. Your image and caliber is very high and not comparable with such low mentality people.We kannidigas have high respects for you. Kindly maintain the same.
