The Akhila Karnataka Mohammadiyara Vedike (AKMV) had organised a felicitation program to honor Harekal Hajabba with Ramjan Sab Award, carrying a purse of `10,000 and a citation, for his initiative efforts to save Kannada language and for crafting poor children by educating them here on October 7. At a time when Education Institutes have turned out to Business houses, and the time when the state government is pondering to shut its Kannada medium school citing the lack of admission, here is a man from Dakshina Kannada district who wants to bestow a glossy touch to the poor children by running a school. Harekal Hajabba, who suffered ignominy throughout his life, for being illiterate, made a resolve to help poor children. He started the school in 1999 with the earnings from selling oranges and established a Harekala Primary & High School with 28 students at his village Harekala Nupaddupu near Konaje on the Mangalore-Kerala NH 66. Some NGOs later pitched in and cleared his debt. Later, the gram panchayat also helped him financially for his cause. Now, the school has classes from I to X with 280 students and 12 teachers. Presenting the award, Kannada litterateur Dr Bargur Ramachandrappa said, “Hajabba is a simple man and not after publicity. Whatever money he gets from the sale of fruits is spent on the school. But our leaders are using all their for publicity and personal gains.” Hajabba had brought with him a basket full of oranges, which was readily purchased for `1000 a piece by the audience as a token of help. Addressing the gathering, Samiullah Khan, President, Akhila Karnataka Mohammadiyara Vedike said, “There are many Muslim organisations which do not bother about the people like Hajabba. We should highlight every individual’s efforts which come in the wake of betterment of the society.” Speaking to the media, Hajabba earlier expressed that he wants to start a government PU college for poor. “I have submitted a memorandum to the chief minister and the MLAs regarding the opening of Government PU college for poor students. I am in anticipation of there response.” Hajabba, whose life history is in Kuvempu and Davengere universities’ curriculum from 2012 to 2016, is also a subject in Na Karanth Peraje’s book which is now figured in the university syllabus for under graduates. District Karnataka Rajyotsava was conferred on him and many other felicitations followed. Hide this content..

MANGALORE: Frenetic hunt for matrimonial alliance has led to the breaking of ice between two sects of Brahmin community who were divided by the mighty Vindhyas. The Pancha-Gauda Brahmins of the north and the Pancha-Dravidas of the south are likely to explore marriage proposals. Representatives of the All-India Brahmins' Federation, Akhila Karnataka Brahmin Mahasabha and other Brahmin associations will meet at Delhi's Vidyapeetha on October 7 to discuss the issue. A few days ago, Sullia's Kashyapa Yuva Brahmin Vedike decided to act as matchmaker between Brahmin grooms here and girls from Kashimiri Pandit families in the National Capital Region of Delhi.Mahasabha member Krishnamurthy Bayaru told TOI that the Pejawar mutt's junior pontiff will attend the meeting. The pontiffs of Ramachandrapura and Sringeri mutts, too, will be invited. Krishnamurthy echoed the Kashyapa Vedike on the reasons to look northwards for brides: Skewed sex ratio in the state; well-earning priests, farmers and cooks not enjoying a good marriage market; and educated girls seeking parity in the match. The problem was more acute in the coast than in the Malnad. Mahasabha's organizing secretary (Karnataka) M S Nanjundaswamy said the Vipra Jagrutha Convention at Shimoga discussed the issue threadbare on May 19 and 20 and formed a committee to fast-track the proposal. Before the Delhi conclave, the Mahasabha members will tour North India to instil confidence among families willing to marry off their daughters to grooms in the south. "Landowners, self-employed and priests top our priority list. We'll do a thorough groom background check before recommending that person," Swamy said. He agreed that the North-South solution, though, was a temporary one. Hide this content..
