Delivering valedictory address at the sixth Taluk Kannada Sahitya Sammelan held in Bomplapura on Sunday, he said people should love language so that the language can survive. Kannada is still alive in villages, on the contrary it is slowly dying in the cities, he lamented.

Sammelan President B K Sumitra urged to build ‘Samskrithika Smaraka’ in the memory of the Sammelan.

The resolutions taken in the Sammelan include developing Kuvempu Sandesha Bhavan of Heerekodige as tourist centre, to support Anna Hazare in his fight against corruption and to urge the government to provide help to the arecanut growers.

Achievers in various fields were felicitated on the occasion.


“We do not neceassarily need a university to understand life, but exposure to folk will enable us to learn it,” said litterateur Jayanth Kaikini.

At poets’ meet held prior to the valedictory of the sixth Sahitya Sammelan, he stressed on the need to have exposure to art and literature.

A poets mind should work positively. Art and literature elevate the self respect of a man.

Poets like Srimathi Nagaraj, Bhavalmane Satish Nayak, Bhavalmane Satish, Samapat Sirimane and others read out the poems.
