100 year old Shri Shri Shivakumar Swamy heads the Sri Siddaganga Mutt in the Tumkur district of Karnataka. He is called ‘Nadedaduva Devaru’ or ‘Walking God’ but sadly not many people outside the state have heard about him. Swamiji and his mutt have done enormous work in education and rural development. In the education area, the mutt runs many schools and colleges and nearly 50,000 students are enrolled there who are all from poor families in Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh.

As one student said, “we only have to pay Rs 1,000 a year and everything is free, education, stay, food, everything!” Swamiji was born in 1907 and took sanyas in 1930 when he was 30 years old.

Your Opinion

In 1989-90, with Rajiv Gandhi as PM and Farooq Abdullah as CM, 400,000 Kashmiri Pandits, Sikhs & Others FACED GENOCIDE - were slaughtered or forced to leave Kashmir overnight. "The Kashmir Files" shows only a small part of this. Should a Kashmir Genocide Law be made and the atrocities be fully investigated?

आपकी राय

1989-90 में, राजीव गांधी के प्रधान मंत्री और फारूक अब्दुल्ला के मुख्यमंत्री के रूप में, 400,000 कश्मीरी पंडितों, सिखों और अन्य लोगों को नरसंहार का सामना करना पड़ा - या तो रातों-रात कश्मीर छोड़ने के लिए मजबूर होना पड़ा । "द कश्मीर फाइल्स" इसका एक छोटा सा हिस्सा ही दिखाता है। क्या कश्मीर में हुए नरसंहार पर कानून बनाया जाना चाहिए और अत्याचारों की पूरी जांच होनी चाहिए?
