He is married to a rich merchant family daughter of Davangere and his
wife is a matriculate. he is living in Dharwad with his wife.
The lawyer has two more daughters. The elder is called PArvati and the
younger is called Gowri. PArvati studied in Haveri upto P.U.C. final and has passed it in
obtaining twentieth rank to the state, Gowri is studying in nineth standard.
PArvati as she has taken twentiyath rank in the P.U.C, her class mates and friends
persisted her to join college and to take a degree. Her father was reluctant to get her joined
to the college. She persisted him to agree to join college and told himquot; father there is
brother's house in Dharwad, As I have taken twentieth rank in the P.U.C. I am sure to get
merit scholarship in the college and there will be no college fees and beside that I get some
money for books and stationery in which I will maintain myself. You need not spend any
money to my college studies.
Her mother also recommended her case with her father to agree to her joining the
college. So he has to agree and joined her to the K.L.E. college in Dharwad and arranged to
stay at the sons house.
As both are briliant students of the same subject they became good friends. Sarojini'S
house was in the atation road. PArvati's house was near the college in about two furlongs
Sarojini has to go to the college in the roadwhere PArvati's house was, so every day
Sarojini has to pass through pArvati's house. Therefore both became fast friends and
Sarojini use to come first to PArvati's house first and together both use to go to college.
While returning from the college Sarojini leaves PArvati at her house and proceed to her
house. This was their usual practice.
In the class both had good affiniy for each other but PArvati is a good debator. She
has taken some prizes and certificate in the debates in her carrier in p.u.c. She had a good
memory and never forgets any thing she reads or hears and had the ability of using that
knowledge in her debates.
So here in the college she volunteer herself to participate in inter class debates as
well as in inter college or states debates and has won prizes and certificates to both for self
as well as to the college. Therefore she is recognized and loved by the college staff as well
as by the college students.
Being so meritorious she never felt proud and even she use to help her classmates
as well as her college mates who ask her help in understanding some subjects which they
had not understood. Therefore she is loved by one and all in the college.
In a few days Sarojini and PArvati became very good close friends and had some
virtual affinity in each other.
PArvati had a great liking for karnataka music. She had some of those karnataka
music songs by-heart
and use to sing them often at her leasure in her privacy.
Her class-mate Sonal was learning hindustAni music she being a nothern Indian
origin. Her house was four house apart from the house of PArvati in the same road. One
Pandith Bavaraj was teaching her hindutani music in her house three days in a week.
Sonal was an average student in the class but is a good singer of hundustani music.
Her voice was very apt to that. She use to approach PArvati for some explanation of her
class lessons which she did not understand. PArvati was coaching her in those lessons.
PArvati one day asked herquot; Sonal I am fond of music and like to hear it.
Can I ccme to your house to hear the music while your teachercomes to teach you if you
have no objection to come to your house at that timequot;.
Sonal saidquot; I will ask my mother about your coming to my house to
hear music and let you knowquot;
Her mother agreed for that . So PArvati now began to go to her house
to hear music. After some days her going to hear music to her house once Guruji said to
PArvatiquot; you are very interested in hearing hindustani music why cannot you learn itquot;
PArvti said to himquot; sir, I like music either it is hindustni or karnatak but I
most like to learn karnatak rather-than hindustaniquot;.
Guruji said quot; oh, you are much interested in karnatak. Well then I can
teach karnatak music also. I have learnt both and has vidvat digree in bothquot;.
Then pArvati saidquot; sir, I will ask my father about my learning karnatak
music and if he agrees to it i will let you know about itquot;.
When her father came to Dharwad she asked her father about her
learning of karnatak music and the payment of fees to Guruji. Her father agreed for that. So
when he met the Gurugi she informed himquot; Sir my father has agrees for the proposal and
even agreed to give fees for th learning, so you can teach karnatak music to me.
Now the problem of where to get the music lerning to be done. It is not
possible to ask Guruji to come to her house to teach music because her sister-in-law doesn't
like music at all. So she asked Sonal whether she and her mother agree to have lessons of
karnatak music in her house. If they agree she can have lessons of karnatak music in her
Sonal asked her mother about this and her mother saidquot; more than
hindutani music I like karnatak music. and I have no objection in your friend's learning
karnatak music in this housequot;
This Sonal convied this message to PArvtai . ThenPArvati asked the
guruji to teach her karnatak music in Sonal's hous/
Guruji guruji arranged PArvti's teaching of karnatak muic in the last
three days of the week and he spared the first three days to tach Sonal.
Now the teaching of karnatak misic to PArvati gegan in Sonal's house
in the last three days of the week. During that period Sonalquot;s motheruse to sit thereto hear
yhe karnatak music.
Thus PArvati's music learning completed oneyear. One day her father
asked her to discontinue the music learning . So she said to her Gurujiquot; sir my fatherasked
me to discontinue the music learning,therefore please hereafter please stop teaching music
Her tguruji said quot; my dear child, you have got a perfect melodious
voice. Thia is a God given gift to you.. This kind od voice is very rare it cannot be found
one in a million. You havegot the talent to learn very quickly and your memory is very
do not leave learning karnatak music.I do not find a pupil like you one in a million. I will
bestow all my knowledge of this music to you. Please don't leave learning the music. I do
not want any fees for my teaching but my sincere ambition is to bsto all my kanatak music
knowledge to you. I have a great hope pupil like you will make this karnatak music flurish
well in thi worldquot;.
From that day on wards my music continued. I didn't stop paying fees to
Guruji, I adjusted this amount from my scholer-ship amount.
Thus my music leaning continued in my second B.Sc. also.
Once in April month first week my father came to brothers house
bringing a party with him. There were three people. One elder gentleman and a lady and
another a young youth.
Father said to brotherquot; look my dear son this elder gentleman is our

what is your opinion to show your sister to them?quot;
My brother thought a whil and saidquot; father, ifmyour have agree to
show PArvati to them I have no objection in showing her to themquot;.
So father went out and invited them all to come inside the house.
After they all came inside the house they were introduced to my brother. My brother
received them with folded hands and offered the chairs to sit.
I was very curious about all these matters happenning and was seeing
all standing at my room window which faces to the street.
After they all sat there talking my brother came inside told every
thing to my sister-in-law and asked her to prepare me to show to them. So my sister-in-law
took me to her room selected a fine silk sari of hers, combed my hairs and asked me to
wear the sari and dress up,
When I am ready my brother came and asked my sister-in=law to
bring me to the hall before them. She took me to the hall and asked me to sit on the chair
opposit to them and sat beside me. The my brother introduced us to them.
Now Mr.Chndran began to talk, he saidquot; I was seeing this
daughter of our beloved vakilsab going in front of my house in the station road where my
office and house quarters are whenever she comes to Haveri in her holidays. She draged
my attention and I approved her majestiness.
Very recently I had been to bangalore and met my cousin sister
there. During our talk about our house welfare she told me that her son is not agreeing to
marry any of all the brides shown to him from well read brides of rich family as well as
middle lass family. So at that time I remembered this lady and thought he may approve her
to marry . So I told all to my sister and asked to visit Haveri to see the girl. so my sister
and her son have come to see the bride.
I consulted Mr vakilsab explaining all about my sister and family
an asked him wheher he agreeto so his daughter to my sister an to her son. He agreed so
they have come to see her.
