VISHWA KANNADA MEET – Belgaum to be venue for sammelan


DH News Service Bangalore:

The second only Vishwa Kannada Sammelana in the State, planned as another landmark event on the occasion of the Suvarna Karnataka year is tentatively pegged to be held in the third week of January – over a three-day period.

The Department of Kannada and Culture has reportedly proposed – January 19, 20 and 21 as the schedule for the meet.

The Government has already decided on Belgaum as the venue for the same.

The City, which was recently in for some hi-profile activity thanks to the special session of the State legislature, is now due for some more of the same. A Rs 1.5 crore “Samskruthika Samuchaya” – Cultural Convention Centre is top among the bounties, as part of the Vishwa Kannada Sammelana.

Speaking to Deccan Herald on Saturday, Director of the Department of Kannada and Culture K R Niranjan said that the sanction for the Samskruthika Samuchaya is likely to come within a week. Half an acre property of the Belgaum City Corporation located next to its Kumaragandharva Rangamandira has been identified as its venue, he said.

Nehru stadium – main location

Belgaum’s Nehru Kreedangana has been identified as the main location for the Vishwa Kannada Sammelana-related programmes; the State government has already released Rs 90 lakh to the district administration for sprucing up the ground. It is expected to accommodate a gathering of about 50,000 people, he said.

The Kumaradhara Rangamandira, the Geerige Bhavana have been identified as the venues to hold the series of other programmes which will be held simultaneously.

Officials noted that a section on Kannada films will be among the prominent features of the Sammelana.

To recall, the first Vishwa Kannada Sammelana in the State was held in Mysore in 1981.
