BELGAUM: Brushing aside all controversies of not being a true Kannadiga, Infosys chief mentor N R Narayana Murthy said that in his heart he is a pure Kannadiga. Bangalore which is a software land, may soon feature in the English dictionary, he said.

Inaugurating the World Kannada Meet here on Friday, Murthy said that Kannadigas are a peaceloving and patient people. "Development does not mean only in urban areas or in the field of software, but includes improvement of living standards of rural people. Keeping this in mind, Infosys Foundation is trying to improve villages and making efforts to save our folk art forms," he explained.

He called on youngsters to work hard and not be guided by money alone. ‘‘Love your work, money will follow, else it will run away from you.’’ Litterateur Dr G S Shivarudrappa appealed to the government to stop making assurances of grants of crores, and show real concern for Kannada by protecting the state’s natural resources.

‘‘Only then this global event will be meaningful.’’ Jnanpith awardee U R Ananth Murthy released ‘Punaravalokana’ edited by Hampa Nagarajaiah.

Leader of Opposition in Assembly Siddaramaiah appealed to Maharashtrians to accept the recommendations of Mahajan Commission Report and clarified that Belgaum is part and parcel of Karnataka.
