ಆತ್ಮಕಥೆಯನ್ನು ಐದು ಅಥವಾ ಹತ್ತು ವರ್ಷಕ್ಕೊಮ್ಮೆ ಬರೆಯತೊಡಗಿದರೆ ಭಾಷೆಯಂತೂ ಬದಲಾಗುತ್ತದೆ, ಜೊತೆಗೆ ತನಗೇ ತಿಳಿಯದಂತೆ ಸತ್ಯದ ಸ್ವರೂಪ ಕೂಡಾ ಬದಲಾಯಿಸಬಹುದಲ್ಲವೆ? ನಾನು ಮೊದಲಿನಿಂದ ಸುಳ್ಳು ಹೇಳುತ್ತಾ ಬಂದಿದ್ದೇನೆ. ಆ ಸುಳ್ಳಿನಿಂದ ಇನ್ನೊಬ್ಬರಿಗೆ ತೊಂದರೆಯಾಗುವುದಿಲ್ಲವೆಂಬ ನನ್ನದೇ ಆದ ಭರವಸೆಯೂ ಇರುತ್ತಿತ್ತು. ಅದಕ್ಕೇ ಈ ಇಳಿ ವಯಸ್ಸಿನಲ್ಲಿ ನನಗೆ ಸುಳ್ಳು ಮತ್ತು ಸತ್ಯಗಳ ಭೇದವೇ ಮರೆತುಹೋಗಿದೆ! ನನ್ನ ಈ ದೀರ್ಘ ಜೀವನದ ಬಗೆಗೆ ‘ಉಳಿದವರು’ ಏನು ತಿಳಿದುಕೊಂಡಿದ್ದಾರೋ ಅದೇ ನನ್ನ ಕಥೆ. ಆದರೆ ಈ ಉಳಿದವರಲ್ಲಿ ನಾನೂ ಒಬ್ಬನಾಗಿದ್ದೇನೆ! ಆದ್ದರಿಂದ ವ್ಯಕ್ತಿಯ ಆತ್ಮಕಥೆ ಒಂದು ಅಧಿಕೃತವಾಣಿಯಾಗುತ್ತದೆ.

B.V. Karanth

Babukodi Venkataramana Karanth was a film and theatre personality from India. Throughout his life he was director, actor and musician of modern Indian theatre both in Kannada as well as Hindi, and one of the pioneers of Kannada and Hindi new wave cinema. He was born in Dakshina Kannada. He was an alumnus of the National School of Drama (1962) and later, its director. He has directed many successful plays and has directed award-winning works in Kannada cinema. The Government of India honoured him with the Padma Shri.


Vaidehi (real name Janaki Srinivasa Murthy), born in 1945, in Kundapura, Dakshina Kannada District, Karnataka is a well-known Kannada fiction writer and poet, renowned for her espousal of the cause of women. Her writings, generally described as post-modernist, depict the plight of women in an indignant and rebellious tone. In fact, it is told that her creative self blossomed as a result of her encounters with patriarchy, in search of her personal freedom. For instance, daring to sit on a chair was, for her, one of the heroic feats she accomplished in her childhood, in defiance of the social injunction that girls should not sit on chairs in presence of the male members of the family, let alone male members from outside. She longed for the freedom that she was denied on account of being a woman, but enjoyed in full measure by her brothers. Her short stories and novels lament the discrimination and unequal treatment meted out to women in society. She successfully takes up cudgels on their behalf, using her pen as an effective weapon for social transformation. Vaidehi has received many prestigious literary awards, such as the Karnataka Sahitya Akademi award, the M.K. Indira award, and the Katha award. Many of her works have been translated into English and many Indian languages.
