The event which was organised successfully for the 27th consecutive year was different from the previous versions with new categories, Thunta Krishna and Geetha Krishna. There were separate competitions for children of all ages, from new born babies to 14 year olds.

Speaking at the inaugural function, President of District Kannada Sahitya Parishad Pradeep Kumar Kalkura said that it is a competition only for the name sake, while the real mission is to enable the public to visualise god in their children. “Now a days we see children dancing to vulgar music in skimpy clothes and their parents enjoying it. This competition is an attempt to remind them the presence of god in the children, he said.

Thanthri Sree Vittaldas commented that it is necessary to imbibe the message of Krishna through Gita, than dressing up as Krishna. “We have lot of Kamsas and Kauravas around us. Only the Krishna within us can solve the problems in the society,” he said and stressed the need to protect the culture.

Earlier, the programme stared with a Talamaddale by Leelavathi Baipadithaya and devotional songs by the students of Nadasaraswathi sangeetha vidyalaya directed by Vidushi Satyavathi Mudambadithaya and AIR National awardee flute artist Krishna Pawan Kumar. Various well known personalities of the city were present on the occasion.
