KaSaPa’s 101st anniversary celebrated

The Kannada Sahitya Parishat (KaSaPa) which was estab­lished on May 5 in 1915 has steadfastly served the interests of over six crore Kannadigas and has etched its name per­manently in the Kannadigas’ hearts and has completed 100 years of glorious service, said lecturer Lakshmikanth.

He was speaking as the Chief Guest at the 101st anni­versary celebrations of KaSa­Pa held at the Rotary Bhawan in the town recently under the joint auspices of KaSaPa and Rotary. Celebrating 101 years of KaSaPa is indeed a proud moment for all Kann­adigas, he said and added that ‘the light of Kannada should spread among all Kan­nadigas across the state and bring a new hope in the liter­ary world.”

Lakshmikanth further said that KaSaPa has undoubtedly become the main platform for all Kannadigas. The orgainisa­ tion which started with only 41 members has now grown into three crore member organisa­tion, he added. KaSaPa Pres­ident Navin Rai urged for more Kannada programmes in the rural areas to promote Kanna­da language and increase its membership. Writers Madh­uprasad and N R Aradhya were feliciated on the occasion. Rotary president Prashanth, former KaSaPa presidents Umapathi and Jagannath, and others were present.
