Shravanabelagola, October 22, 2005: Prof. G.Venkatasubbaiah one of the doyens of Kannada literature called upon the Jain and Kannada writers to focus much on ‘Halagannada’ (Old Kannada). He was speaking after inaugurating the All Kannada Jain Literary organised on the occasion of the Mahamasthakabhisheka of Lord Bahubali. He called upon the people to record the pronunciation of the old Kannada literature from the Jain scholars so as to guide the younger generation in the study of Halagannada.
