Amit Gupta – CEO of Asianet News Media and Entertainment, said, “As a responsible media network, we at Asianet News Network constantly endeavor to make a social impact while conducting our businesses profitably. With events and IPs like these we want to offer our medium to recognize and felicitate people of grit, resolve, purpose and impact they generate despite all possible constraints. News and entertainment media has been synonymous with happenings of significant importance, glitter and glamour and we believe that people with the above qualities coming from diverse walks of life and yielding themselves for a purpose which is much larger than our daily living deserves to hog all the importance, glamour and glitter. Each time we host this event we are more and more humbled seeing the people shortlisted and feel that truly ‘we ourselves are our only limitation and boundlessness is within everyone’s reach if one desires’."



Ravi Hegde – Editor In Chief of Kannada Prabha and Suvarna News, added, “The process of identifying and felicitating the unknown heroes of our state was initiated in the year 2006 by Kannada Prabha, Suvarna News followed this initiative along with Kannada Prabha from 2015 and together we have completed three successful years, we are proud to be associating with these heroes year on year and will bring out more of such individuals in the front through Asamanya Kannadiga over the years to come."
