`They have a great role at home'

TUMKUR: Shivakumara Swamiji of Sri Siddaganga Math said here on Saturday that he is of the view that women should not enter public life.

Releasing Jivaganga-Nammooru, an annual magazine of students of Siddaganga College for Women, at the math, the swamiji, who will be 99 on April 1, said: "A woman will prove to be a great asset to the nation by being a successful mother at home. Playing the role of a good host is important to women. I believe women can contribute more to the development of the nation by remaining at home than by becoming a Minister, bureaucrat, or manager," the swamiji said.

The 186-page magazine contains information on Tumkur. Principal of Siddaganga Institute of Technology M.N. Channabasappa and Principal of the college G.S. Renukappa were present.
