Special in its own way

All efforts have been made to ensure that the Sahitya Sammelana did not limit itself to discussing matters related to literature. It should be a multifarious affair and should encompass all the aspects of the society.

Instead making it monotonous and a boring affair, the organisers have decided to include art and cultural programmes in between. Apart from pravachanas, Yogi Nareyana Thathaiah’s sankeerthanas will also be presented.

Both, Hasyothsava and Nageloka will send the audience into peels of laughter on both the days of the event. Veterans who have contributed in the field of literature, culture, dance, social service, sports, etc will be felicitated on the occasion.

Every effort is being made to ensure that the event will be different of its kind and a special one. All the associations, organisations and institutions are contributing their best to make the programme a grand success. Each and every person will celebrate and rejoice in the Kannada festival.
