Chutuku kavi sammelana held at Dandeli

“Chutuku Sahitya” (Limerick literature) has gained importance because of its ability to convey meaningful message within a few lines. Dr Dinakar Desai and many poets of Uttara Kannada district have done remarkable job in enriching this form of poetry, said Dr Kallinath Katrale, noted litterateur.

Dr Katrale was speaking after inaugurating a one day “Chutuku Kavi Sammelana” in Dandeli, organised under the aegis of Uttara Kannada Zilla Chutuku Sahitya Parishat and the local Progressive Literary Forum.

Prof S M Kachapur, Alagundi Andanayya, Chandrakant Angadi and Dundappa Golur were the guests of honour.

Mr R Shivsingh, district president of Chutuku Sahitya Parishat, welcomed the gathering and explained the objectives of his organisation. Mr Ashok Cholachagudda, noted writer, released “Shree Satpurusha Dandelappa” a play penned by playwright Mr Dundappa Golur on the occasion. Mr Cholachagudda spoke about the challenges the traditional visual media has to face in the light of growing popularity of electoric media.

Mr M S Lamani, principal of the local Janata Vidyalaya PU college, presided over the function. Ms Padmavati Rajput and Mr Hanumant Kumbar also spoke. About 60 poets from the district and the neighbouring districts presented their short poems on the occasion.
