-Anand Kumar Barkur
21st June 2020 is date to be remembered for Barkur for the tragic accident at the historical Choulikeri Pond claimed a precious life. The spot was dangerous for its steep twin 90 degree turns from the day one but was taken casually without any safety barricades and this complacency took its toll.
But the timely action of these two unsung heroes , Barkur Praveen Poojari and Pradeep Devadiga saved one more life, though one was lost. They were just traveling on the same road when the tragedy struck and they swung into action without considering their own safety and manage to rescue the lady passenger of the car. Their brave act is well appreciated by the general public.
