Poet withdraws poem from Class 9 Kannada textbook
Hassan-based writer and activist Roopa Hassan withdrew her poem from Class 9 Kannada textbook. In her letter to primary and secondary education minister BC Nagesh, she stated that in the Class 10 Kannada books, no poems or articles of any woman writers are included. “There was no representation for women in the review committee either. It is an insult to the entire women fraternity,” she alleged.
