MYSORE: The Vice-Chancellor of University of Mysore, J. Shashidhar Prasad, on Friday announced that the university was willing to publish the English edition of "Bharatheeya Patrikodyama", authored by late Nadig Krishnamurthy.
Prof. Prasad was speaking here after releasing "Bharatheeya Patrikodyama", which has been published by the Karnataka Madhyam Academy after obtaining permission from the Mysore University. While the book had been released earlier, the academy had organised the local release ceremony to create awareness on the book among the public.
He said that Prasaranga of Mysore University was ready to publish the English version as it was receiving adequate funding from the Central Government.

"The revised edition should contain ethical and moral issues related to journalism," he said.
The more than 700-page Bharatheeya Patrikodyama is priced at Rs. 400. The book would be offered at a discounted rate of Rs. 300 by the academy.
