B R Sainath endowment seminar in Madikeri

He was speaking after the inauguration of B R Sainath endowment seminar, college Kannada Sangha inauguration and prize distribution programme at FMC College here on Monday. The programme was jointly organised by the District Kannada Sahitya Parishat, Kannada and Culture Department and Field Marshall Kariappa College. Speaking on the occasion, he described Kannada as a reflection of our rich culture.  

T P Ramesh gave a call for the initiation of debate and activities on Kannada culture, art and literature in all the schools and colleges. “It not only brings Kannada awareness among the students, but also helps in the growth of budding talents. We must work in favour of our land whenever Kannada land and language are posed with trouble. We have to work for the progress of our mother tongue instead of ignoring it,” he suggested.

District Co-operative Society In-charge CEO R Manjula delivered a talk on “Students’ role in the field of literature,” during B R Sainath Endowment seminar. “The quality of good literature is to do good to the society. Literature reflects the society. The students should purify their mind and thought by picking up good things from the literature. It in turn yields in the birth of good literature,” she affirmed.

Further, she said that it would not be tough for one to get hold of many languages if he/she has a strong grip on one language. So we must be aware of our mother tongue. Literature is necessary to correct the young minds, she informed.

“Students must strive hard with aim and determination to lead a good life in the society. Exposure to literature enables us to develop positive qualities in us,” said FMC College Principal Dr Pushpa Kuttanna in her presidential address.

Dakshina Kannada Sahitya Parishat Honourary Secretary B A Shamshuddin asked the students to develop grasping power and far-sightedness. Taluk Kannada Sahitya Parishat President K T Mathew insisted the students to receive the membership of Kannada Sahitya Parishat and involve in literature related activities.

Kannada and Culture Department Assistant Director Vinodchandra, District Kannada Sahitya Parishat office bearer Shwetha Ravindra, FMC College Assistant Professor Lakshmidevi were present.

Prizes were distributed to the winners of various contests. The formal programme was followed by music concert by Liyakath Ali and his troop.
