Yakshagana Kalaranga awards to 17 achievers

Yakshagana Kalaranga awards were conferred on 17 Yakshagana achievers, at a programme organised by Udupi Yakshagana Kalaranga, Udupi Sri Krishna Mutt, Paryaya Palimaru Mutt and Kannada and Culture Deparment, in Udupi on Sunday.

Speaking on the occasion, Pejawar seer Sri Vishweshatheertha Swami said that Yakshagana art form is thriving in recent years.

“I do not belive in the arguments by a few that Yakshagana art is losing its charm. It is growing continously,” he said.

Releasing Kalantaranga souvenir, Bannanje Govindacharya said, “Adamaru Mutt seer Naraharitheertha had promoted Yakshagana. In fact, Yakshagana is the basic for Kuchipudi. The creativity involved in Yakshagana is not found in any other art form. There is originality in the dance, tala-mela in Yakshagana.”

Sri Vishweshatheertha Award was conferred on Kateel Sri Durga Makkala Mela. Mela president Harinarayana Asranna received the award. Yakshachethana Award was conferred on Prof Narayana M Hege.
