This is an article published in today's Vijaykarnataka. Personal pains take a backseat when the professional commitment matters. There are certain people who remain equanimous in spite of personal ordeals and continue to excel in their fields. Our own Chief Secretary of State, Mr SV Ranganath is one such exception.

ಸನ್ಮಾನ್ಯ ಸಚಿವರಾದ ಸುರೇಶಕುಮಾರ್ ,

ಅರ್ಥಪೂರ್ಣವಾದ, ಹೃದ್ಯವಾದ ಲೇಖನ. ಉನ್ನತ ಹುದ್ದೆಯಲ್ಲಿದ್ದು, ಕೆಲಸದ ಒತ್ತಡದ ನಡುವೆಯೂ ಅವರ ಜೀವನ ಆದರ್ಶಪ್ರಾಯವಾಗಿದೆ.
ಮಹರ್ಷಿಗಳಾದ ಡಿ.ವಿ. ಗುಂಡಪ್ಪನವರ ಕಗ್ಗದ ಎರಡು ಮುಕ್ತಕಗಳು ನೆನಪಿಗೆ ಬರುತ್ತದೆ.

ಇರುವ ಕೆಲಸವ ಮಾಡು ಕಿರಿದೆನದೆ ಮನವಿಟ್ಟು ।
ದೊರೆತುದ ಹಸಾದವೆಂದುಣ್ಣು ಗೊಣಗಿಡದೆ ।।
ಧರಿಸು ಲೋಕದ ಭರವ ಪರಮಾರ್ಥವನು ಬಿಡದೆ ।
ಹೊರಡು ಕರೆ ಬರಲಳದೆ ಮಂಕುತಿಮ್ಮ ।।

ಹುಲ್ಲಾಗು ಬೆಟ್ಟದಡಿ ಮನೆಗೆ ಮಲ್ಲಿಗೆಯಾಗು
ಕಲ್ಲಾಗು ಕಷ್ಟಗಳ ಮಳೆ ವಿಧಿ ಸುರಿಯೆ
ಬೆಲ್ಲ ಸಕ್ಕರೆಯಾಗು ದೀನ ದುರ್ಬಲರಿಂಗೆ
ಎಲ್ಲರೊಳಗೊಂದಾಗು ಮಂಕುತಿಮ್ಮ

ನೀವು ತಿಳಿಸಿದ ಮಹನೀಯರಿಗೆ ನನ್ನದೊಂದು ದಂಡವತ್ ಪ್ರಣಾಮಗಳು

Dear Sir,
Here is another story which I read in 'Udaara charitharu, udaatha prasangagalu' edited by Dr TV Venkatachala Shastree (Publisher - V Si Sampada, Vasundhara, C Cross, Rajivnagar, Banashankari Third Stage, Fourth Phase, Bangalore). It is about Kannada and Sanskrit scholar Mahadeva Prabhakara Pujara, who lived in Dharwad.
At the beginning of his career as teacher some elderly man proposed him to marry a girl. Without second thought he agreed. Immediately after the marriage, his father-in-law, with folded hands, told Pujar ''You have freed me from my responsibility of arranging my daughter's marriage. I am ready to arrange for another marriage.'' His daughter was mentally challenged. Pujar told him, ''I have married your daughter. I will live with her. If I desert her now I will have to bear the sin of spoiling the life of an innocent girl.'' He lived with her for next 40 years and had four children three of whom were mentally challenged. During those 40 years his routine was to get up early in the morning, make tea for the family, prepare for the bath, cook food and serve for the entire family before going to the college at 10 am. Evening after serving the snacks and tea and gardening for some time, he used to cook food and serve it again to the family before going to bed. He used to take any one of the ill fated sons with him just to avoid embarrassment or any other problem to the other members of the family. He got his elder daughter married. But his son in law left his daughter on a flimsy reason. Pujar helped his son in law to get married to another girl. After some days that daughter separated from her husband became disabled due to some accident. Pujar never complained about any of his family members. He served them as though he was enjoying the service he had been rendering to them. Amidst all these he had contributed valuable books on Kannada literature.
