A mini book world at Nudisiri thrills book lovers

Mangalore, Nov 17, 2012, DHNS:

Books rule

Over 100 book stalls spread across four floors at Alva’s college, was the main highlight of Alva’s Nudisiri.

Though on the first day the response was not as quite high as expected, students and children who turned up to the stalls in comparatively large number kept the stall section busy. However, on the second day the number of book lovers visiting stalls almost doubled.

Of the 129 stalls including that of books, handicrafts, jewelery, home-made items, some of the stalls offered discounts to the buyers in an attempt to sale more number of books. The book section was largely ruled by Kannada novels, books on personality development, astrology, dictionaries and books for children. The stalls had books authored by Kuvempu, Poornachandra Tejaswi, Dr U R Ananthamurthy, D R Bendre, Ravi Belagere, Dr Sara Aboobakkar and others.

A stall was specially opened to sell the books authored by the students and lecturers of Alva’s College.

The collection included the works of Dr Dhananjay Kumble, Anu Belle and Aditya Bhat. Stalls were put by Pustaka Kendra, Manjunatheshwara Mobile Library, Sahitya Kendra, Sapna, Akshara Sanchara-Kundapur, Loka Shikshana Trust and other retailers.

Tulu book ‘Mandara Ramayana-Tulu Mahakavya,’ a Kannada book on Shakespeare by A N Murthy Rao, Kannada translation of Jeffrey Archer’s ‘A twist in the tale,’ were some of the rare books that were available in the stalls.

A stall, ‘Abhivyakti’ had the collection of books by Nagatihalli Chandrashekhar which were sold at 25 per cent discount price.

The handicraft items by Arive Heggodu, Swadeshi Kaimagga Nekarara Javali maththu Marata Sahakara Sangha, CDs and DVDs on agriculture by Shramajeevi Agri Films attracted a section of the society.

The collection of stamps exhibited by a Hindi teacher Rayi Rajkumar too drew the attention of a good number of visitors.

Over 2,000 varieties of stamps were on display at the exhibition stall.

Painting exhibition

The art exhibition with over 30 art pieces painted as part of Chitra Siri which were on display portrayed artistic talents of the professional as well as amateur artists. ‘Thal Ka Ped’ by Subhash Bhil from Bhopal was an interesting work, with the coconut tree depicted like a dancing tree, with dancers dancing around the tree. Another art piece titled ‘Under construction’ by Mahesh G Mysore too was an eye-catching work with a Yakshagana artiste backing the audience facing an under-construction building.

While the background of the building in black and white in colour, the Yakshagana artiste is portrayed in dark colour. ‘Donate eyes after death,’ by Kasim Kanasavi from Bagalkot was a painting with a social message.
