Kannada poetry workshop inaugurated at UoM

A three-day Kannada poetry workshop, organised by Betageri Krishna Sharma Trust and Kuvempu Kannada Study Centre was inaugurated B M Sri Auditorium, Manasaangotri.

“The workshop aims at teaching the participants about writing, understanding and reviewing poetry. Only a poet knows how poetry takes shape and a reviewer won’t know how poetry takes birth,” said Giraddi Govindaraju, renowned reviewer.

“Nowadays poetries are very difficult to understand. Some are writing poetries just for the sake of writing. Kumaravyasa had called poetry as a secret affair. “Kannada poetries are divided into various forms such as Navya, Navodaya, Dalita, Bandaya and others. Social media has become a bigger platform for the upcoming writers which give higher visibility,” said Prof Aravinda Malagatti.

Vice Chancellor of UoM Prof K S Rangappa, Raghavendra Patil, President of Betageri Krishna Sharma trust, Prof Preethi Srimandhara Kumar were present on the occasion.
