The event is being organized under the aegis of Karnataka Komu Sauharda Vedike. The formal release of invitations and its official poster was held in front of the deputy commissioner’s office on Monday, Jan 26.
Author and former academic Chandrakala Nandavara released the poster. Speaking on the occasion, she said that India which at one time was known for its varied cultures and multiple languages was being converted into an arena for communal conflicts.
