KPCC president G Parameshwara on Monday released the life history of the architect of Indian constitution, B R Ambedkar, written in the form of an epic by illiterate poet Ramanna Byati at Thontadarya Kalyana Mantap in Gadag.
The epic, written in Bhamini Shatpadi (six-line verse) contains 36 chapters in 514 pages. In his work, Byati has described Ambedkar’s childhood, his family background, struggle for social justice, and his role in drafting the constitution. He has taken the help of his daughter Sunanda in scripting it.
Speaking after releasing the book, Parameshwara and district minister C C Patil praised Byati, saying it’s a big achievement by an illiterate weaver.
