Music varsity to name its expanded campus after Dejagow?

As there are chances of the Karnataka State Gangubai Hanagal Music and Performing Arts University getting the land, earlier identified at Varkod in the taluk, for expanding its activities, the authorities concerned are planning to name the campus after former VC of University of Mysore De Jaware Gowda.

Addressing a gathering after the inauguration of ‘Bharatiya Nruthya Vaibhava’, a dance festival organised by the varsity at Ganabharati Veene Seshanna Bhavan, here, on Saturday, Registrar of the varsity Y S Siddegowda said: “Plea for land at the said place had been turned down as it came under the ambit of the Forest department. Now, following the change in the Forest Act, there is all likelihood of the varsity getting the same land. If it turns into a reality, the varsity will name the campus after Jaware Gowda”.

Siddegowda said, “Jaware Gowda was instrumental in getting the land for the varsity, that makes it apt to name the campus after him”.

Earlier, in his address, former VC De Jaware Gowda sought essential help from the government in the comprehensive development of the music university in the city. The varsity is involved in both teaching and research works that requires essential help from the higher ups.

“Dance that set the tone for arts has now branched out into different art forms. Bharathanatya, especially, is popular in South India, that ensures harmony in the society”.

Danseuse Usha Datar said: “Music and performing arts are inseparable and is indeed a matter of pride that the varsity is encouraging both in the interest of the art lovers”.

Datar, however bemoaned that there is a dip in the number of people practicing dance and music, thanks to their commercialisation.
