No one has made efforts to accurately comprehend and adhere to the principles of pluralism so far. Alva’s Nudisiri made an attempt in the direction and has considerably succeeded in contributing and exploring the dimensions of pluralism. Nudisiri has also been an amalgamation of agriculture, culture, photography, performing arts, drawing, and folklore.
There must be the best entrepreneurs and the best employees generated from Karnataka. We must generate young people who shall serve in the land of Karnataka, and always remember the sense of debt they owe to the land. There must never be a sense of inferiority amongst the youth of Karnataka owing to linguistic barriers. Hence Udyogasiri was organised for the first time at Nudisiri for people who studied from class1-10 in Kannada medium.
