Ever since T. V. V. Sastry earned his doctorate, he has dedicated himself to editorship, research, discussion, ancient literature, scholarly elaborations of prominent Kannada works and authoring authoritative works on Kannada grammar and its origins. University of Mysore’s Kannada Adhyayana Samsthe’s prominent publications such as “Kannada Sahitya Charitre”, “Kannada Chandassina Charithre”, “Kannada Vishaya Viswakosha”, and “Epigraphia Carnatica” owe a great deal to

Dr T. V. Venkatachala Sastry’s erudition, perseverance and steadfast administrative acumen. His skills as an editor helped assemble and streamline many of these volumes in addition to several felicitation volumes for eminent personalities.

Dr T. V. V. Sastry was director between 1991 – 1993 at University of Mysore’s “Kuvempu Kannada Adhyayana Samsthe” before occupying the chair of Dean of Arts at the University till 1994. Dr T. V. Venkatachala Sastry was at University of Mysore for 26 years in various positions – Lecturer (1968), Reader (1974), Professor (1984), Director (1991-1992) and Dean of Arts (1992-1993) before retiring in April of 1994 at the age of 60 years. He is married to Venkatalakshmi and currently resides at Mysore.

 

Dr T. V. Venkatachala Sastry’s writings span over three decades and number in excess of 90. His writings encompass a range of vistas such as History of Kannada Literature, Literary Criticism, Kannada grammar, Kannada Poetry, Dictionary writing & editing, Editorship, Translations and much more. In fact, he was the first to offer an elaborate discussion on Devachandra’s “Rajavalikathe” and Kempunarayana’s “Mudra Manjusha”. His Ph. D work titled “Kannada Neminatha Puranagala Toulanika Adhyayana” attracted considerable attention in literary circles.
