Mangaluru: Writer Hampa Nagarajaiah (Hampana) released ’Modala Mettilu,’ a collection of articles that includes prefaces and opinions written by former vice-chancellor of Hampi Kannada University Prof B A Viveka Rai on January 14
Hampana said at international level plenums he went to, there was a similar demand from the literary lovers to access Kannada literary works. Most of the other language works are accessible here. But it is not on the expected lines in the case of Kannada literature, he observed.
About the contribution of Rai to literature, he said, "Though Rai wrote selectively, the quality is very high, that is essential for the growth of literature." Hampana, who applauded Rai for his profound contribution to folklore, drew parallel with late De Javare Gowda who had enormously contributed to folklore.
