Mangaluru, Aug 29, 2015:  Mangaluru:  All out efforts must be made to develop Kannada  schools if  Kannada land and its people have to  progress on all fronts, said veteran writer Dr N Sukumara Gowda.

He was delivering the presidential address at the 20th District Kannada Sahitya Sammelan held at Sri Kshetra Kateel Temple premises on August 28, Friday. Continuing, he said the educational field  can develop only when there is a change in our view point on education.  Education should be considered a process of moulding the personality of the students, he added.
