’Emotions  recollected in tranquility  is poetry’.  The retired  hard working and successful  official, author of this maiden  collection of poetry  is the work of a great mind  determined to continue  contribution in a larger way  to society.  Sri M R Vasudeva,  as  his brothers  who were present  explained,   comes from a devout and  humble back  ground born in Marpalli in DK  but even from childhood  moved all over the state and is now at home in any part of India by virtue of his service in the Central Govt.  The author who saw life in the raw  in theearly  1960’s  has come up by sheer education and hard work.  He first  earned an MA in statestics and has many degrees and diplomas earned through hard work all along his life; this includes  a Diploma in Vedantha as well which has served well in his day to day life of truth and  sincerity.  His brothers are today in the pinnacle of their  areas of service and have achieved a stature in the service of the society.  It was the good fortune of  MIA - Mangalore Internaional Airport that this illustrious person served  here at a very critical time. As Director Vasudeva, has contributed a phenomenal  quantum of incalculable  assets to make it a leading airport in the country, it is evident from the very visible growth it has gained and the praise and international rating it has been awarded.  Presently  this great man is directed towards  a balanced political service to common man and  the cause of literature.


Light at the end of the tunnel……..seems to be the  focus of this 70 page book of poetry as seen from its cover, which has to be read again and again.   ‘Akaad’  when read by different types of people will be interpreted in very different  individual perspectives. The ‘allegorical metaphor’ and  ‘philosophical’  conundrum  will spellbind  readers in individually different ways  in different  states of mind and mood.  As the various speakers  of the day  explained. Spontaneous  flow of thought is the hall mark of this great  thinker and Kannada linguist who has come to the fore to grow and multiply.  The president  Padmavishuna  Dr. D Veerendhra Hegede   lauded the authors contribution to the civil aviation scene of Mangalore for a good many years.  After his retirement  he has untiringly left no stone turned to serve the nation and it’s people in various ways. Now here in this love gift and knowledge to Kannada litratrature  Sri M R Vasudeva’s  true  life goals  have surfaced  and be sure will go forward to great heights said  Dr. D Veerendra Hegade in his presidential  address which was  applauded  profusely by all present on the occasion.


The author humbly thanked the President and guests in warm terms and emotionally  expressed that  if  many more people come forward to serve their fellow men with  sincerity, kindness and effort  Indaia can rise to greatest heights.  In every body there is a special gift if these gifts are channeled and given  a right opportunity every human can contribute very significantly and sustain a nation that is great from ancient times and at present is making it’s mark in the world arena in ways hitherto unimagined.  Nothing is just chance everything is a design of the ’Parameshwar’.  This book of poetry will surely  contribute in more ways than one.
