Teachers can play an important role in this regard, says philanthropist

SHIMOGA: Recipient of the Karnataka Unification Award and philanthropist H. Ebrahim emphasised on Saturday the need for concerted efforts to create awareness among Kannadigas about the tradition of Kannada.

Replying to the felicitation offered to him by the staff and members of the Aurobindo Foundation for Education at Javalli 10 km from here (of which he is the chairman) he said it was ironical that Kannadigas faced a threat of being reduced to a minority in Karnataka. He said there was a need to strengthen the language and future generations should not be deprived of the opportunity to learn Kannada. He highlighted the role of teachers in this regard.

Mr. Ebrahim said the medium of instruction should not come in way of promoting the interests of Kannada. “Kannada should be taught such that children develop a natural love for it,” he said.

Regretting that though Karnataka had been unified geographically, he said its emotional integration remained a dream. He said classical status should be conferred on Kannada .
