Dubai, 26 Nov 2018: The casteism should cease to exist among Tuluvas that should lead to peace and harmony.  The natives of Tulu should strengthen their bonds regardless of caste, creed and religion. The relations among Tuluvas are unique. Tuluvas don’t need money and it’s a fact that they need good relations with each other. One is destined to be rich that I have learnt out of my life. I will meet PM Narendra Modi in getting final nod for including Tulu in the eight schedule of Indian Constitution, said Padmashree Dr B R Shetty, founder chairman of MNC Group.


Dr Shetty was speaking during the valedictory function of Vishwa Tulu Sammelan 2018 that was held at Al Nasr Leisureland Ice Rink Indoor Stadium, here, from November 23 to November 24.  It was jointly hosted by Overseas Tuluvas, Karnataka Tulu Sahitya Academy and Akhila Bharata Tulu Okkoota.

Speaking on the occasion, Dr Heggade said, ‘The memories of six-months preparations for Vishwa Tulu Sammelan may be short lived.  Let the memories of two-day mega event will remain forever.  I have felt I am in my native Tulunadu when I witnessed the mega event in Dubai.  Let the Sammelan contribute for the prosperity of Tulunadu,’ said Dr Heggade.
