Rajyotsava awards for space scientists
DH News Service,Bangalore:
Karnataka government has selected 89 personalities including space scientists Dr S K Shivakumar and M Annadorai who played a major role in Chandrayan for the prestigious Rajyotsava award for 2008.

This year recipients of the award will get Rs 1 lakh in cash besides 20 grams of gold. In the previous year only 20 grams of gold was given as part of the award. Two years ago Rs 10,000 in cash was given to the awardees. Last year the government decided to give 20 grams of gold instead of cash. However for the first time the government has decided to present both gold and cash as part of the award.

Singer S P Balasubramanya, Pravajavani associate editor Padmaraj Dandavati, Mohandas Pai of Infosys, IISC Director P Balaram, writer Dr Vijaya Dabbe, theatre personality V Ramamurthy, film director S K Bhagavan, actor Pramila Joshai, Arjuna awardee Shikha Tandon are among those selected for the award. Two BJP leaders have also found place in the list. Former BJP State president Basavaraj Patil Sedam has been selected for the award for his contribution to the field of education and Saikumar who contested for the Assembly elections on BJP ticket for his contribution to film field.

Home Minister V S Acharya, who announced the list said that there were more than 2,500 applications for awards. The special committee shortlisted the applicants and identified many others who had not applied for the award”, he said. He admitted that it was a Herculean task for the committee to finalise the list.

Two days ago the Chief Minister had said that the number of awardees would not exceed 80.

Awards will be presented at a function to be held at Sri Kanteerava Indoor Stadium in Bangalore on November 1. Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa will present the awards and Chairman of Legislative Council Veeranna Mathikatti will preside over the function.

C Ashwath and his troupe, Sangeetha Katti and his troupe, Prabhat Kalavidaru and 200 folk artists will present cultural programmes on the occasion.

Secretary of Kannada and Culture Department Jayaram Raje Urs said that the government has made special bus arrangements for the convenience of the public taking part in the award presentation ceremony.


A NAME DELETED

Dr Acharya announced names of 90 personalities as selected for the Rajyosatva award. However, later the number was reduced to 89. The name deleted from the list was ‘Madan Gopal’, under Journalism category.

Journalists wanted to know who ‘Madan Gopal’ was. Acharya said it was not Madan Gopal but Madan Mohan, a senior journalist based in Hubli. He also appealed to the scribes to delete the name from the list. Journalists brought to his notice that Madan Mohan was a recipient of the Rajyotsava award some years back. Manu Baligar, director of Kannada and Culture directorate, said that he would confirm after verifying with the Chief Minister’s office. The CM’s office confirmed that the name included in the list was Madan Mohan. However it was misspelt in the press release circulated in the press conference. “We realised that Madan Mohan has already been given the award. The name will be dropped from the list” said R P Jagadish, media advisor to the CM.
