I am not that Bad - Dr Asha Benakappa

Thursday, November 6, 2014 • Kannada Comments

A doctor by profession and columnist by interest Dr Asha Benakappa, well known pediatrician was in great speed and subject to speak at the ‘Harivu’ premiere show evening at Sri Chamundeswari Studio in Bangalore on Wednesday night.

The magnanimity of Dr Asha Benakappa is that she is letting it go although the story of the film is from her experience written in the columns of prestigious newspaper ‘Prajavani’ of Deccan Herald group. I was told to put a case for stealing from her column for the subject of ‘Harivu’. I am not that bad personality she stated and allowed the team of Aspect Media Network to stay cool.

However the observations in the film on child care in the hospital she took the director Mansore to task. In the hospital where I am working it is free from corruption especially in ‘Children wing’. In the real life I had seen such a father struggling for the life of his young son. His name was Hanumanthappa. He lived literally with his son in the hospital for six months but could not save his son. Decease was such acute. The due respect was paid to him and to the child after it passed away. Like how in the film a huge box was shown, Hanumanthappa also came up with such a box to carry his son body to his native village.

On the day Hanumanthappa took the body of his son the hospital inmates respectfully sent him and he was not asking for only life of his son remembered Dr Asha Benakappa.
