Staff Correspondent



A SOUVENIR:Director of Kannada and Culture Manu Baligar releasing the comprehensive prose volume of poet Channaveera Kanavi during the latter's 84th birthday celebrations in Dharwad.

DHARWAD: A “jugalbandi” of music and drawing rangoli and release of a comprehensive volume of prose writings of veteran Kannada poet Channaveera Kanavi marked the poet's 84th birthday celebrations.

At the Karnataka Vidyavardhaka Sangha here, many literary enthusiasts had gathered to become part of the birthday celebrations of the humble poet and it turned out to be a memorable experience for them. While Jyoti Kudlagi set the tone for the evening with melodious renditions of the lyrics of Mr. Kanavi, artiste Shivalingappa Badiger of Hubli greeted the veteran poet by drawing a beautiful portrait of the poet in rangoli.

Despite the evening drizzle people had gathered in good numbers at the Patil Puttappa Sabhabhavana, where a formal release of the comprehensive prose volume of the poet Kanavi titled Kanavi Samagra Gadya was organised.

The volume brought out by the Department of Kannada and Culture had been released by director of the department Manu Baligar.

Releasing the book, Mr. Baligar said three years ago the department had initiated the project of publishing comprehensive volumes of Kannada writers and offered them to the readers at low prices. “Last year, we had brought out a comprehensive volume on poetry of Mr. Kanavi and this year we have brought out the prose volume”, he said.

Mr Baligar was all praise for the humility of Mr. Kanavi and said that despite his gigantic achievements, the poet considered himself as smaller than many others.

“By ensuring that there is not much gap between what he writes and how he lives, Mr. Kanavi has become a role model for everyone,” he said.

Writers Kum. Virabahdrappa and M. Ramachandra spoke on the writings of Mr. Kanavi.

Researcher M.M. Kalburgi presided over the function.
