T. V. Venkatachala Sastry with G. Venkatasubbaiah, H. Tipperudraswami, H. Nagaraj

He is remembered by generations of students who are grateful for his endearing, affectionate and scholarly devotion. His fellow colleagues and scholars have time and again complemented his erudition, depth of knowledge, scholarship and humanity. Probably, the noted Kannada litterateur Dr M. Chidananda Murthy’s tribute to Dr T. V. Venkatachala Sastry summarises his persona the best:

“….Dr T. V. Venkatachala Sastry’s multifaceted learning, brilliant memory and refusal to propose anything without first backing it with evidence is indeed commendable. His writings are characteristically devoid of presumptions. Even while quoting and discussing scholars & writers of yore, there is a conspicuous absence of narrow minded, sectarian nepotism. In fact, to even question his ideas, one has to first think long and think hard!.......”

                                                                                   - Dr M. Chidananda Murthy

 

Dr T. V. Venkatachala Sastry currently resides at his residence in Mysore, India with his wife Venkatalakshmi and devotes his time to writing, reviewing, editing and critiquing literary works. As part of his felicitation for lifetime contribution to Kannada language & literature, two festschrift volumes “Sumukha” & "Kannada Meru" were presented.
