Mangaluru: Home minister G Parameshwara presented Sandesha Awards to eight achievers in various fields here on Saturday, January 16.
They included writer writer H.S. Venkatesh Murthy, Konkani writer Gladys Rego, Tulu actor and theatre artist Devadas Kapikad, sitar player Ustad Rafique Khan, teacher Sugantha Sathiaraj from Ballari and musician Joel Pereira. Sandesha special recognition award was given to G.S. Jayadeva from Deenabhandu Trust in Chamarajanagar.

Speaking on the occasion home minister lauded the contributions of Christian institutions for the development of the society is commendable. There is no meaning for development if any section of the society remains oppressed and denied its benefits. Christian institutions have selflessly worked for the welfare of the oppressed and those who are in difficulty.

“I am not concerned about the comments being made against institutions, which have remained committed to the cause of development of the oppressed and needy sections of society.”

Appreciating the good work of the Sandesha he said that institutions such as Sandesha Foundation had involved themselves in development of literature, art and culture that had helped cement bonds among communities and foster harmonious living.

He further speaking on intolerance said that few sections of the society are indulged in disrupting peace and harmony in the society. Through a new concept called intolerance, they have created hatred among different religions. Every religion must be allowed to live freely and nobody can decide how they should live, what they should eat and wear, he said.

Sandesha director Fr Vijay Victor Lobo welcomed the gathering.

Bishop of Mangaluru diocese Dr Aloysius Paul D’Souza, Archbishop Bernard Moras, Bishop of Ballari diocese Dr Henry D’Souza, Bishop of Udupi diocese Dr Gerald Isaac Lobo, MLA J R Lobo, MLC Ivan D’Souza, Karnataka Sahitya Academy president Roy Castelino, C G S Taccode, Titus Noronha and others were present.
