'Vernamudi' camp concludes in Mangalore

 Around 40 artists from Kasargod, Udupi and Dakshina Kannada districts have put their ideas on Tulu culture on the canvas during the two-day camp.
Ponnuraj reflected that the Sammelan would be an impetus to preserve the rich Tulu culture for the future generations and empathised with the feeling of oneness with one’s culture. He also revealed that he has decided to learn to speak in Tulu recently.
President of Tulu Sahitya Academy Palthady Ramakrishna Achar presided over the function. President of Kudla Kalavali Samithi Jagadish Ammunje, SBI AGM C M Thallur, Veteran artist K L Bhat, Secretary of SDM Educational Society B Yashovarma and others were present on the occasion.

Artists Ramadas Adyanthaya from Mysore and Madhusudhan Kumar from Mumbai presented an overview of the two day camp. Earlier inaugurating Vernamudi, Alva’s Education Foundation Chairman Dr M Mohan Alva said: “Artists can express their thoughts about culture, religion and society through their creative works. Hence artists should dedicate themselves to preserve the values of culture.”
Dr Alva said that the World Tulu Convention will reinvent the rich culture and traditions of Tulunadu. 

Veteran artist P S Puninchithaya Kasaragod said that it is possible for the region to be identified globally, if proper encouragement was extended to artists.
Mangalore City Corporation Mayor M Shanker Bhat said that the region is gifted with large number of artists. “Tulunadu has the distinction of being a land with rich culture and traditions of Daivas. It is possible for artists to rejuvenate the culture through brush strokes,” he said adding that the artists’ camp will also help unite artists of undivided Dakshina Kannada district.
