Bisarahalli wants to make his active presence count from Hampi University in Kannada Sahitya. He has recently appeared for the entrance exam. Speaking to ANI, Bisarahalli, said that he appeared for the exam last year and failed. Having appeared for an exam this year, he said that he is pretty sure of cracking the same this time.

“I had attempted the exam last year as well, but failed. This time, it went well and I am confident of clearing the exam. I also wish to write a book on literature and Kannada poems,” he said. Bisarahalli has a degree in law and master’s degree from Karnataka University in Dharwad and Hampi Kannada University (Kannada University).

Education is a vital factor and people like Bisarahalli has taught us great a lesson that there are no age restrictions to learning. Also, he has taught not to give up in life. He might have failed in the first attempt but that didn’t stop him from appearing for the exam in the second attempt which he believes that he is confident of pulling off a spectacular result.

Learning is a life-long process and in other words, there is no definite age for learning. Let’s promote this freedom fighter for his relentless thirst in studies even at an elderly age. Kindly share this article to inspire others.
