2-day seminar on ‘Mitakshara’



At long last, the name of the medieval India's greatest jurist Vijnaneshwara, a Kannadiga who lived at Martur in Gulbarga district, would be known to the people, and a rightful place would be accorded to him.

While the Gulbarga University has come forward to set up the ‘Centre for Studies in Vijnaneshwara's Mitakshara & Human Rights’ in the university, a two-day national seminar on ‘Importance of Vijnaneshwara's Mitakshara to Twenty-First Century’ is being held in the university from December 30.

The Vijnaneshwara Sowharda Sahakari has constructed a Vijnaneshwara Bhavan & Research Centre at Martur, around 14 kilometers from Gulbarga, and this would be inaugurated on December 31.

Addressing a press conference here on Tuesday, Gulbarga University Vice-Chancellor V B Coutinho, and Law Faculty Dean J S Patil stated that the ‘Centre for Studies in Vijnaneshwara's Mitakshara & Human Rights’ had been set up with Rs 20 lakh seed money from the University Grants Commission (UGC).

Prof Coutinho, who himself is an expert in labour and intellectual property law with innumerable research papers and books to his credit and has studied 'Mitakshara' written by Vijnaneshwara in detail, stated that the centre would undertake studies on the 'Mitakshara', and try to imbibe it in the present circumstances.
The centre would also undertake research and study on all the personal laws in India, and try to come out with an 'uniform civil code' for the country. This would be in accordance to the Indian Constitution, he added. "And for this uniform civil code, 'Mitakshara' could be the base," he said.

Seminar
Dr Patil said, to highlight Vijnaneshwara's 'Mitakshara', a two-day national seminar on ‘Importance of Vijnaneshwara's Mitakshara to Twenty-First Century’ was also being held in the university from December 30. He said, Chief Justice of India R C Lahoti would be inaugurating the seminar at 3:00 pm, while Karnataka Governor T N Chaturvedi would preside. The first technical session would be held at 4:45 pm on December 30. Around 200 delegates will take part.
