ಆತ್ಮಿಯ ಶ್ರೀ ವೆಂಕಟೇಶರವರೆ, ಶ್ರೀ ಡಿ.ವಿ.ಗುಂಡಪ್ಪನವರು ತಮ್ಮ ಕೈಯಾರೆ ಬರೆದ ಬರಹ ನೋಡಿ ನಮ್ಮ ಮನಸ್ಸಿಗೆ ತುಂಬಾ ಆನಂದವಾಯಿತು. "ಟುಡೇಸ್ ಕಗ್ಗದ" ಮೂಲಕ ನಮಗೆ ಅವರ ಕೈಬರಹವನ್ನು ನೋಡುವ ಭಾಗ್ಯ ಕಲ್ಪಿಸಿಕೊಟ್ಟ ನೀಮಗೂ ಹಾಗೂ ಶ್ರೀ ಮಾಯಾಸೀತರಾಮ್‌ರವರೂ ಕೋಟಿ ಧನ್ಯವಾದಗಳು

Are you sure it is DVG's handwriting?

DVG employed a stenographer who also acted as his personal assistant, he was called by his initials as TGS, I will try finding his full name and other details.

Also, see the handwriting in his signature(in kannada) does not appear similar to the handwriting in the body of the letter.

Just an observation!

ಮಹನೀಯರೇ, ಕಗ್ಗದ ಒಡೆಯನ ಕೈಬರಹ ಕಾಣಿಸಿದ ತಮಗೆ ನೂರೆಂಟು ನಮನಗಳು, ಅದಕ್ಕೆ ಅನುವು ಮಾಡಿದ ಸೀತಾರಾಮ್ ಎನ್ನುವವರಿಗೂ ವಂದನೆಗಳು. ಡೀವೀಜಿ ವ್ಯಕ್ತಿಯಲ್ಲ ಶಕ್ತಿಯಾಗಿದ್ದರು, ಅಂದಿನ ಕಾಲದ ಅವರ ವೈಯಕ್ತಿಕ ಪತ್ರದಲ್ಲಿ ಆ ಆಪ್ತತೆ ನೋಡಿ ಮನ ಕರಗಿ ಬಂತು, ಅಂತಹ ವ್ಯಕ್ತಿಯನ್ನು ಕರ್ನಾಟಕ ಬಹಳ ತಡವಾಗಿ ಗುರುತಿಸಿತು, ಅವರದೇ ಹೆಸರಿನ ಡೀವೀಜೀ ರಸ್ತೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ಅವರು ಬಹಳಕಾಲ ಬಾಳಿದ ಮನೆಯೇ ಈಗ ಇಲ್ಲ, ಅಲ್ಲಿ ವ್ಯಾಪಾರೀ ಸಂಕೀರ್ಣ ತಲೆ ಎತ್ತಿ ಎಷ್ಟೋ ವರ್ಷಗಳಾದವು! ನಮ್ಮದೆಲ್ಲ ಹೀಗೆ, ಇರುವಾಗ ಗುರುತಿಸದೇ ಗೌರವಿಸದೇ ಸತ್ತೆಮ್ಮೆಗೆ ಹತ್ತುಸೇರು ಹಾಲಿತ್ತು ಎಂದು ಹಳವಳಿಸುವವರು ನಾವು. ಈ ಕೆಲಸ ಮೊದಲೇ ಮಾಡಿದ್ದರೆ ಅವರ ಮನೆಯನ್ನು ಸರಕಾರ ತೆಗೆದುಕೊಂಡು ಸ್ಮಾರಕ ಮಾಡಬಹುದಿತ್ತು,ಆ ಕಾಲ ಮಿಂಚ ಹೋಯ್ತು.

Instead of worrying a lot about not been able to save DVG's house, people should try to save his message to the world through his works and ideas.

DVG's brain child was "Gokhale Institute Of Public Affairs" which is still heading in the same path as DVG showed. This institute was his dream and he loved it more than his own home. So, please do not worry about saving the monuments, houses, building, statues.... Moreover nothing great would have happened even if if we had saved his house too, because see the state of houses which are been made monuments. Gokhale Institute is his real house and DVG still lives there, and lives there for ever.

Please just go and use it..

Dear Venkatesha Murthy,

I think Ravi is right. The letter is not written by DVG. It is most likely to be dictated by him to some one else to right on his behalf. One can see that very clearly.
Nonetheless, the warmth in his language is evident. It is wonderful.

It is so nice to read a letter written with good spirit...thank you for posting it.
