Since 2014, a group of literature buffs has been working on a project called Keli Katheya to take Kannada short fiction to listeners.

In its second edition, Keli Katheya is ready with six stories. The authors covered in the first edition are Poornachandra Tejaswi, Jayanth Kaikini, Ravi Belagere, Na D’Souza, Vasundhendra and Vikram Hatwar.

The stories were read out by film director T S Nagabharana, actors Prakash Rai, Suchindra Prasad, Rakshith Shetty and singer MD Pallavi.

On Tuesday, the team also launched an interactive website to enable readers to buy the stories in the form of an audiobook.
