Bengaluru: With the lesson that contains an exaggerated description of Veer Savarkar, the textbook revision row has yet again resurfaced in Karnataka.

A lesson taught in the Kannada textbook for Class 8 claimed that the cell where Savarkar was lodged in Andaman cellular jail did not have any ventilation but BulBul birds had managed to fly in and Savarkar touched the earth of motherland every day flying on the wings of the birds.

With this, the textbook revision row has yet again resurfaced in the state. The education department has replaced a lesson from the Kannada textbook for Class 8.

The previous lesson "Blood Group" authored by Vijayamala has been replaced with "Kalavanu Geddavaru" (Those who won against time) lesson by K.K. Gatti. The lesson is the first-person account of the author's visit to the Andaman cellular jail where Veer Savarkar was kept.

Meanwhile, Tumakuru University in Karnataka is all set to establish a Research centre on Veer Savarkar, which is likely to create fresh controversy. The syndicate meeting has approved the decision and preparations are on to submit a proposal in this regard to the government, sources explained.

After violence over the removal of Veer Savarkar's flexes in Shivamogga and opposition to placing his picture next to Lord Ganesh's idols during Vinayak Chaturthi, social media is discussing the exaggeration of Veer Savarkar in school textbooks.
