What a disgrace he brought to AKKA organization and to the NRIs at large. And worst of all to the sacred name of Kuvempu.
I have strong objection to your head line coverage
First of all I have strong objection to your head line coverage of the episode by Internet Companies. I dont think it is wise to give this kind of exposure to the subject, comparatively very trivial and that to for the one that occurred in USA. And also to the people who are raising the objection on the issue, in Bangalore, as though it is of national importance of India.
If care to remember, the problems in the organisation started, when Mr. Kumaraswamy was removed as the Joint secretary of AKKA organization, due to his high handedness and abrasive behavior. In the month of JulyAugust 2002 he castigated every organizational protocol and brushed aside every senior officials request and directive to stop making promises, which he cannot keep. Does he take responsibility or at least does he remember the promise he made to The Hampe University to give Ten lakhs of rupees for the publication of Kuvempus Samagra Kavya Sangaraha.The work was brought out in two magnificent volumes 1200 pages each. But I am told that even to this day not a single naya paisa is paid to the University. What a disgrace he brought to AKKA organization and to the NRIs at large. And worst of all to the sacred name of Kuvempu.
Let Kumarasway say, that he is incapable of raising money and step out of AKKA permanently, I shall raise that money with in a month or I shall pay the whole amount my self.
In whichever organization he gets involved he tries to bulldoze his fellow workers without giving any consideration, whether they are male, female, senior or junior persons in the organisation. I had the personal pleasure of knowing, his methods of operation when I was president of VPA. Also ask the other 800 members of VPA. They will tell you.
I do not know about the other two individuals at all. Hope they had raised the objection on the account here in USA not in Bangalore. I do not know how many conferences of the magnitude held at Detroit that these two have conducted. Apparently not any I think if they had, they would be in such a hurry to go to the press to wash the dirty laundry.
I read today that some body suggesting to hand over the organization to this group to conduct next conference in Florida. God Almighty, this is insanity. For Heavens sake, set aside the differences and be united, to save this beautiful organization. There are lots of capable people in this Kannada community willing to serve our beloved AKKA. Also please give time and chance to the Detroit team to submit the accounts. If they do not, we can always get it audited to the satisfaction of everybody.

I blame akka president and team for not providing a clear picture about the entire episode. They owe an answer for every kannada loving person in the entire world.
Both Kumra Swamy and Ashvatnarayan are infamous here as highly litigant persons. They raise voice for almost anything and everything. My suggestion to kannadigas in North America is, please appoint Ashwat as president of akka and swamy as secretary for the next term. That is the end for all hacks!
ಹಣ ದುರುಪಯೋಗದ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಬೆಂಗಳೂರಿನಲ್ಲಿ ಬಂಡುಕೋರರು ಮಾಡಿರುವ ಆರೋಪಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಹುರುಳಿಲ್ಲ. ಅಕ್ಕ ಫೈನಾನ್ಸ್ ಕಮಿಟಿಯವರು ಲೆಕ್ಕ ಪತ್ರಗಳನ್ನು ಅವರ ಅಕ್ಕ ಆನ್ ಲೈನ್ ವೆಬ್ಸೈಟಿನಲ್ಲಿ ಪ್ರಕಟಿಸಿ. ನನಗೆ ಗೊತ್ತಿದೆ, ಅಮರ್ನಾಥ್ ಗೌಡರು ಮಿಲಿನಿಯರ್. ಅಕ್ಕ ಸಮ್ಮೇಳನದ ದುಡ್ಡು ತಿಂದು ಅವರು ಜೀವನ ಮಾಡಬೇಕಾಗಿಲ್ಲ. ಒಂದು ಪಕ್ಷ ದುಡ್ಡು ಹೆಚ್ಚುಕಮ್ಮಿ ಆಗಿದ್ದರೆ ಅಮೆರಿಕಾದಲ್ಲಿ ಕಾನೂನು ಸುಮ್ಮನಿರುವುದಿಲ್ಲ. ಇಂಡಿಯಾದಲ್ಲಿ ಸಿಕ್ಕಾಪಟ್ಟೆ ಅವ್ಯವಹಾರ ನಡೆಯುತ್ತವೆ. ಕೇಳುವವರಿಲ್ಲ ಹೇಳುವವರಿಲ್ಲ. ಅಮೆರಿಕಾದ ಕಾನೂನು ತುಂಬಾ ಬಿಗಿ ಆಗಿದೆ. ಸತ್ಯಮೇವ ಜಯತೆ.

ಕುಮಾರಸ್ವಾಮಿ ಮತ್ತು ಅಶ್ವಥನಾರಾಯಣ ಅವರು ಅಕ್ಕ ವಿರುದ್ಧ ಮಾಡಿರುವ ಆರೋಪಗಳ ಪಟ್ಟಿ ಓದಿದೆ. ಅಮರನಾಥಗೌಡರ ಉತ್ತರಗಳನ್ನೂ ಓದಿದೆ. ಎರಡೂ ಕಡೆಯ ಅಭಿಪ್ರಾಯಗಳನ್ನು ಕೊಟ್ಟಿದ್ದೀರಿ. ಮೆಚ್ಚುಗೆ ಆಯಿತು.
ಗಲಾಟೆಗಳು ನಡೆಯಬಾರದು, ಆದರೆ ನಡೆಯುತ್ತಿವೆ. ಮೀಡಿಯಾದವರು ಈ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಪ್ರಕಟಣೆ ಮಾಡುವಾಗ ತುಂಬಾ ಜಾಗರೂಕವಾಗಿರಬೇಕು. ಅಮರನಾಥ್ ಗೌಡರ ಉತ್ತರ ತುಂಬಾ ಚುಟುಕಾಗಿದೆ. ಅವರು ಇಡೀ ವಿಷಯದ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಪೂರ್ಣವಾಗಿ ಬೆಳಕು ಹರಿಸಬೇಕಾಗಿತ್ತು.
ಕುಮಾರಸ್ವಾಮಿ ಮತ್ತು ಸಂಗಡಿಗರಿಗೆ ಬೇರೆ ಕೆಲಸ ಇದ್ದಂತೆ ಕಾಣುತ್ತಿಲ್ಲ. ಇಲ್ಲಿಂದ ಬೆಂಗಳೂರಿಗೆ ಹೋದವರು ಏನೇನು ಮಾಡುತ್ತಾರೆ ಅಂತ ನಿಮ್ಮ ವರದಿ ಓದಿ ತಿಳಿಯಿತು. ಶೇಮ್!
I happend to come across your TOP story about differences of opinion and consequent attacks amoung few akka office bearers. I am amazed how these people find time to do Kannada work of this nature.
I request all concerned and unconcerned persons to stop issuing nasty statements and please save the Grace of Kannada, Karnataka.
Does you all together mean that the next sammelana is put off ?!
This is in response to your article The trio that turned against the President of Akka". I sincerely hope that these honorable three individuals, namely, Sri. Kumara Swamy, Sri. Hanasoge Aswathanarayana and Sri. Rajashekharamurthy are very busy individuals with their employment and caring for their families. I do not doubt their sincerity. But I feel they are spending way too much of their quality time in finding faults with the executive committee of AKKA and trying to educate kannadigas in Karnataka and overseas by bombarding them with Emails and press conferences. Some of their complaints:
" The committee does not follow Robert rules of order." Though it is good to have these rules as Guide lines to conduct a meeting, how many meetings really follow these rules? Most of them are informal and they function very well.
" Committee is wrong in honoring the invited artists from Karnataka after deciding not to have major function until financial statements are finalized, as decided at October meeting," How many people are really apposed to this gesture of honoring the artists who really deserve it? Asking the invited politicians to boycott the function is really mean spirited and sad.
These three honorable individuals themselves have worked in several committees and I am sure understand the duly elected Executive committee has worked diligently and very hard giving lot of their valuable time away from their work and family, with a very short time at their disposal, to make the Detroit conference a success. One may not agree with all their decisions, but in the name of unity one has to go along with their decision.
These three wellintentioned individuals say that they are complaining in the interest of avoiding fragmenting the organization and everyone united. But seriously, their incessant bombarding Emails and uncalled for Press conferences is really having the opposite effect. In fact it may prove to be fatal to this young organization.
Finally I would like to express my disappointment with this portal and press, giving a forum for these individuals to air their personal feelings with the members of Executive committee members of AKKA, thus fueling the fire of discontent and acting inadvertently as an accomplice to the disintegrations of AKKA organization.

I feel really sorry about what is going on with AKKA. This clearly shows why Kannadaigas are not united, They always try to complain on things and people, lag behind in sharing/ communicating and understanding. When a function of that size happens certainly there will be some things that would have not been handled well, this can even happen in a family during weddings or other functions. I never thought that people staying in America have so much time to spend on seeing loopholes in a organization or person. If they can spend this time in some positive constructive work things will be different. However it would be good that AKKA release the financial details and close the issue.
If people think they could have did better, Why cant they do something good at Home (Karnataka, INDIA) and also plan and come up with good Kannada cultural and other activities and improve Kannada Kootas quality in US.
God Bless All,
