[Picked from Shri K. C. Shiva Reddy's book - Ugada Kavi (Poet of the Era)]

Kannada Sahitya Parishat felicitated Sri. Sri. Kuvempu when he was awarded the coveted Jnanapeetha award. Poet Sri. Bendre delivered the felicitation address. That year the Jnanapeetha award was shared between two writers. The prize money too was shared at fifty thousand rupees each. Pointing to this Bendre said that though Sri. Kuvempu got one half laksha (lakh) rupees, because of him Kannada also got the Lakshya (attention).
