Mangaluru: The renovation of the house where the first Rashtrakavi of Kannada, M Govinda Pai lived, is complete under the Gilivindu project. The house, located in Manjeshwar, about 30-km from Mangaluru, is likely to be inaugurated by December-end and will be attended by Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan.
‘Gilivindu’ was a joint project of the Karnataka and Kerala governments and was headed by a Trust. The project was named after a collection of poems by Govinda Pai.
Though Malayalam poet Vallathol was conferred the Rashtrakavi award along with Govinda Pai, a lot of works were taken up in memory of Vallathol, while justice was not done to Govinda Pai. Hence, the project Gilivindu, which aims to turn his house into a national cultural centre, where study, research and workshops in fine arts and performing arts would be held.
