Asthana Vidwaan Sri H P Venkata Rao, has created this outstanding work, and I mean to read it, every word if possible. Our favorite king Sri Jayachamrajendra Wodeyar sponsored this entire colossal effort, that we are blessed to glimpse, let alone read. It is a boon that only kannadigas have and I hope they will take advantage of it. I cant even imagine undertaking such a task in the years I have left in this life. But I hope the young ones can start reading and some worthy energetic person will translate to other languages!
