You could look at it as that "Jab Bhagwaan Deta Hai To…" thing or as rather irrational, depending on who you are. Here's an award constituted exclusively for Jnanpeeth award winners. For them it's obviously a windfall, but if you said "Huh?" for a why, yes, that's a fair huh. We mean, why? Is it that the Jnanpeeth isn't enough or that the others are all necessarily worse than the winners?

J Bapu Reddy is a renowned poet and writer, and is famous for his in-depth knowledge of the literary field. The retired IAS officer is known for speaking in a poetic style when addressing literary meetings, that has his audiences glued to their seats. Out of respect for literature, Bapu Reddy had set up a literary award in his name in 1998, and has been giving away a cash award of Rs. 25,000 every year to one poet who has won the Jnanpeeth award.

For the year 1998-99, an Oriya poet, Seethkanth Mahapatra, received the J Bapu Reddy National Literary Award, and Dr C Narayana Reddy won it for 1999-2000. This year, a Kannada poet, Anantha Murthy, will receive the award. A renowned poet from Karnataka, Anantha Murthy served as a Director for the Central Government's Sahitya Academy (Delhi). As he has conferred upon him the coveted Jnanpeeth Award by the government, and for his contribution to literature, he will receive J Bapu Reddy National Literary Award of Rs. 25,000 this year.

Bapu Reddy will speak about the importance of literature and about a poet's role in society, towards the end of this function. Please contact Y K Nageshwara Rao at 316-0567 for further details.
