Sammelana artistes to visit schools, colleges to popularise event

With just six days left for the 83rd All India Kannada Sahitya Sammelana, the organisers are leaving no stone unturned to make it a success by drawing more people to the event.

A 24-member team (all artistes) has been constituted for the purpose. The artistes would be visiting schools and colleges to create awareness on the importance of holding the literary festival by rendering 'Nadageethe' and related songs highlighting the culture and tradition of the state and Kannada language. They would also invite the students to attend the convention in large numbers and make it a huge success.

Kannada and Culture Assistant Director H Chennappa told DH that the main objective of the literary convention is to create awareness on the richness of Kannada language among the students. The artistes would sing songs highlighting the festival, at important circles of the city, he added.

5K students in procession

The schools and colleges have been showcasing a tableau, which has received a positive response. Around 5,000 students, attired in traditional costumes would take part in the procession on the day. The Kannada Sahitya Parishat will also install cut-outs of 11 Kannada poets, including Jnanpith awardees, he added.

The procession will be launched at 9 am on November 24, in front of Kote Anjaneyaswamy temple. It will pass through Ashoka Road, Irwin Road, KR Hospital Circle, Basaveshwara Circle, Ramaswamy Circle and reach Maharaja's Grounds. The literary fest will be inaugurated at 11 am, Jayanna said.
