A one-day workshop on ‘Fuel-saving and Water Conservation measures’

Suttur, November 2, 2021: The JSS ICAR Krishi Vignana Kendra, Suttur, in association with the Karnataka Renewable Energy Development Corporation, Government of Karnataka, had organized a one-day workshop on the topic, “Fuel Saving and Water Conservation Measures,’ at the Allama Prabhu auditorium in the JSS Educational Institution complex in Suttur on October 30, 2021.

Sri G.H. Yogeesh, Deputy Director, Agriculture Department, Naganahalli District Agriculture Training Center, participated as the resource person. In his talk, he explained that the rivers, tube wells, tanks, and groundwater are major sources of water for agriculture. “The rivers in South India will be full and flow only during rainy seasons. There will be water scarcity for the remaining months of the year. Hence, the farmers should undertake cultivation across the slopes in their agricultural fields and construct pits. It will increase the groundwater level and reduce water scarcity,” he said. He asked the farmers not to burn field waste, and instead convert it as compost and use it to increase soil health. It also helps erosion of soil and absorbs rainwater, he added.

Sri N.M. Dinesh Kumar, Officer, Karnataka Renewable Energy Development Corporation, Bengaluru, in his address, informed that the Department has implemented several programs to enable fuel efficiency measures, keeping in mind the increasing demand for power and energy in the agricultural sector, and its proper management. “Along with agricultural pump sets, farmers are given solar panels. The solar panels are given at subsidized rates for farmers who install the solar panels on the rooftop of their houses, produce electricity, and supply it to KPTCL. Solar lamps are also being installed at public places,” he added. He also informed that more farmers should install solar pump sets in the fields.

Sri N.M. Shivashankarappa, Director, Horticulture Department, JSS Mahavidyapeetha, Mysuru, presided over the program. In his address, he informed that in India, the agricultural sector is using 50% water and 30% power, leading to scarcity of both. “As a large portion of cultivable land is rain-based, rains play an important role, and the groundwater is an alternative source for it. As more farmers are marginal and poor, the government is providing power supply at subsidized rates or free of cost. Also, it is noticed that not many farmers know or are using alternative sources of energy, like solar energy. Hence, more farmers should try to know about it and give preference to install solar agricultural pump sets,” he added.

More than 100 farmers, including both men and women, members of the Farmer Producers’ Organization of Esha Foundation, farmers of the Dharmastala Rural Development Institute and Outreach organization, and B.Ed. students of JSS College took part in the workshop.

Smt. H.V. Divya welcomed the guests and the gathering. Smt. Netravathi Ettinamani gave a vote thanks, and Sri Shamraj mastered the program.

“Let Kannada grow with love”: Sri Addanda C. Kariappa

Mysuru, November 2, 2021: “It is sad to say see that we have reached a point where we have to struggle for the survival of our land and our language. It is not possible to develop our land or language just by fighting and speeches. Let Kannada grow with love,” opined Sri Addanda C. Kariappa, Director, Rangayana.

He participated as the chief guest of a program held at the JSS College of Arts, Commerce, and Science, B.N. Road, Mysuru, on the occasion of the 66th Kannada Rajyotsava. “We are the reason for the present situation of Kannada, which is struggling for its survival in our State. We are all infatuated with English. We should shed our laziness, and we should have a love for your language. We should strive to develop Kannada. The works of great Kannada litterateurs and poets will get meaning, only when we do this. The efforts of Mysuru Wadiyars are immense in protecting Kannada and leaving a legacy behind us. The reason for the development of Kannada in Kodagu is because of the efforts of the Veerashaiva rulers. We all should remember it. We don’t want false history it won’t help in instilling patriotism among us. No other language will have the beauty of the mother tongue. Hence, please respect your mother tongue,” he said.

Prof. B.V. Sambashivarao, Chief Executive of the College, hoisted the State flag. In his address, he said, “Kannada as a language has a great history compared to any other language in our country. Our land was identified as the first literate land. That is why more inscriptions belonging to Ashoka are in our State. Many institutional and personal struggles have taken place for the integrity of Kannada. The contributions of the Vidyavardhaka Sangha, Dharwad, Kannada Sahitya Parishat, and other institutions are immense and memorable. Stalwarts like Mylara Mahadevappa, Aluru Venkatraya, etc., dedicated their lives to unite our land and language. The unification movement commenced by Sri Potti Sriramulu of Andhra Pradesh intensified in Karnataka also. Finally, Karnataka became an independent State as ‘Mysore State.’ Kannada is a very systematic language. The pronunciation, alphabets, everything is very scientific. We are all lucky to have a language with a rich heritage. But today, it has become inevitable to make Kannada an employment-based language. Kannada should not remain just as a spoken language. The land, water sources, culture, everything is included in it. This is the time when we have to create awareness in society through serious discussions, consultation and thoughts by utilizing the political sector. Let us all join hands for the protection and development of our land, water resources, and language,” he said.

Prof. H.C. Honnappa, Principal, PU College, welcomed. Sri S. Somashekar, Principal, Degree College, gave a vote of thanks. Dr. B.S. Sudeep, HoD, Department of PG in Kannada compered.

Students of various departments presented cultural programs including, the recital of the State song, Farmers Anthem, songs depicting the Kannada language and culture.

The absence of values in life is leading to an increase in crime: Sri H.M. Virupakashaiah

Mysuru, October 26, 2021: “Value-based education is the need of the hour. Life without values is the reason for the increasing criminal activities. Though a person is literate, due to absence of value-based education, there will be no humanity in his life, and it will become just business. In this context, it is happy to note that the JSS Institutions have been providing value-based and cultured education to the students,” opined Sri H.M. Virupakshaiah, Hon’ble Judge of the Mysuru Family court.

He participated in a lecture program on the Right to Information Act, organized under the Legal Awareness program, organized by the NSS, of the JSS College of Arts, Science and Commerce, Ooty Road, Mysuru, in association with the District Legal Services Forum today.

“Every student should be aware of all the three important pillars of democracy, Executive, Judiciary and Legislature. The objective of organizing the legal awareness programs is to help the people in distress and educate them on legal aspects. The judiciary is making efforts to create a good society by organizing Lok Adalaths. Efforts are being made to provide solutions to legal problems through the village, taluk, and district legal centers. It is the responsibility of all of you to educate the people around you, especially people living in rural areas to create legal awareness. You are all studying in one of the best educational institutions. Please adopt your learning and culture in your lives and become good citizens of the country,” he added.

In his address, the Chief Guest Hon’ble Judge Sri T.S. Shivaswamy asked the students to drive vehicles carefully. “Please understand that life is valuable, be careful. Law allows helping accident victims, but it can’t provide you with life. If children won’t look after their parents in their old age, the law helps parents to get alimony. You should also create awareness among the parents about this. Lead a good life, and also look after your parents nicely, let your neighbors also live. Please don’t be dismissal about life,” he said.

In his presidential address Prof. B.V. Sambashivaiah, Chief Executive of the College, expressed his view that if people are aware of the law, the country will be safe. “Law is changing like our lives. Everyone should be aware of it. The Right to Information Act allows you to know the administrative matters of the country. This Act has brought transparency in administration and has paved the way for development. But the people should know about it,” he added.

Earlier, Dr. H.C. Honnappa, Principal, welcomed the guests and gathering. Kum. M.S. Sushmita rendered an invocation. Dr. R. Suhas, Assistant Professor, mastered the program. Teaching, non-teaching staff, and volunteers were present.
