Suttur, November 14, 2022: The JSS Educational Institution, Suttur, had organized a program as part of the Kannada Rajyotsava and Children’s Day celebrations.

Chief Guest Dr. Bheemaraju Eeregowda, Assistant Professor, JSS Academy of Higher Education and Research Academy, in his address observed that the Kannada Rajyotsava is celebrated every year on November 1 in order to remember all those who have served for the cause of Karnataka and Kannada language. “Our language is sweet and easy to learn for anyone. It is just like peeling a banana, like savoring a peeled off sugarcane,” he said. Referring to a few lines of poet Mahalinga, he explained the love of great litterateurs and poets of our State towards our language. “Along with other languages, we should understand the good aspects from them and develop our language. That is real love towards the language. Let us all try to do it,” he added.

Another chief guest, senior advocate Sri D.B. Rajashekaramurthy, in his address said, “Kannada is our language which has a history of more than two centuries. Instead of encouraging the students to score more marks in the exams, the teachers should prioritise identifying their creativity and skills and promoting it,” he observed.

Meritorious students who have scored highest marks in the 2021-22 SSLC exams were given cash prizes by the teachers.

Heads of various departments of the school including, Sri G.L. Tripurantaka, Sri Sampath, Sri G. Shivamallu, Sri M.G. Basavanna, Smt. C.P. Nirmala, Sri G.M. Shadakshari, Smt.P. Susheela and Sri Mahadevaprasad, and others were present.
