Jnanapith Awardee and representative of the ‘Navya’ movement in Kannada Literature, Shri UR Ananthamurthy supporting the cause said ‘It is a very important initiative that the Namma
Bengaluru Foundation has taken. Like William Wordsworth said – ‘The Little unremembered acts of kindness and love are the best part of a person’s life’, there are several people and
organizations in the city who work in their respective fields ensuring delivery of services round the clock. These few are the ones who make life easy for the very many of us. They are true
heroes who work for the sheer happiness of having rendered service to make the city better and not for any personal interest of money or fame. As responsible citizens it is our duty to
identify and honour such individuals and organizations and thank them for their contributions to the city. Such acts of nominations will ensure that Bengaluru is not just quoted as a Big City’ but also as a city that recognizes and shows gratitude to the people behind its making’"
