- Memoir - Puttappa and Jatti -

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

Some time during (nineteen hundred) fifties the opening ceremony of the First Grade College of Mandya was held. Sri. B.D. Jatti presided over the programme. Sri. Kuvempu was invited to inaugurate the programme. There was a large gathering. In his inaugural speech, pointing to lean looking Sri B.D. Jatti, Sri. Kuvempu told the audience, 'You might be thinking that I am Jatti (a wrestler) and he is Puttappa (small person). It is not so. He is Jatti and I am Puttappa.' The audience broke in to laughter and clapped.
