  1. It is indeed wonderful to know that ” HOOVAKKA” will be made a movie. I hope the producers will give a special touch of Belgaum to this movie, including the language and accent .
    I am looking forward to meeting Dr Sarjoo Katkar some day when I am in Belgaum next.
    All the Best to you Dr….. …..

  2. All the best Mr. Katkar, thousand salutes to you for your literary works and for your contribution to journalism. Request if you may undo the small parking gate encroachment / extension to your residence compound wall.
