Pejawar seer made honourary president of Tulu Sammelan


 
Published Date: 19 Oct, 2009 (8:28 PM)

Udupi Oct 20: The Vishwa Tulu Sahithya Sammelana Committee has chosen Pejawar mutt seer Sri Vishweshatheertha Sripada as the Honorary President for the Sammelana to be held at Ujire from December 10 to 13.

Speaking to media persons here, Committe Working President and Dharmasthala Dharmadhikari Dr D Veerendra Heggade informed that the three-day Sammelana is an effort to preserve and promote Tulu culture and heritage.

The sammelana will be divided into three sections ‘Kode’ (yesterday), ‘Eni’ (today), ‘Yelle’ (tomorrow). Six ‘Goshtis’ will be held simultaneously on the occasion.

Prior to the sammelana, regional programmes will be organised at various places in the erstwhile Dakshina Kannada district.

Accordingly, Udupi will be the venue for the ‘knowledge centre’ showcasing the traditional attires and jewelleries of  Tulunadu, he said.

Confluence

Speaking on the occasion, Pejawar seer said that the Sammelana will be a confluence of literature, art and religious ceremonies.

Survival of a culture wholly depends on language. The dissemination of language aids conservation of the culture. Tulu language should be accorded the status it truly deserves, the seer said.

Languages part of culture

“The people of the erstwhile Dakshina Kannada district have two mother tongues- Kannada and Tulu. “Both the languages are the part of the culture over here,” he opined. Paryaya Putthige mutt seer Sri Sugunendratheertha, Alva’s Education Trust Chairman Dr Mohan Alva, former MP Vinay Kumar Sorake, Industrialist Pramodh Madhvaraj and others were present at the press meet.

"The people of the erstwhile Dakshina Kannada district have two mother tongues- Kannada and Tulu."

Really ??

What about Konkani, Urdu.

Rather than celebrating Tulu and giving it the prominence it deserves, foolish statements like these try to divide people.

When will these people get some wisdom.

Dear Organisers of Tulu Sammelana
Hope this Sammelana will revive the culture and heritage of Tulunadu. Under the dynamic leadership of Shri Heggadae this Sammelana will be a memorable event in the history of Tulunadu.
The organisers also should plan for building a Tulu Samskrithi Bhavana with museum, theatre and a restaurant which caters the Tulunadu recipes like Semeda Adye, Pelakaida Ghatti, Pundi etc. A Samskrithi Bhavan with a museum could become an important tourist destination to our district. A permanent theatre could be an ideal venue to conduct Yaksha gana or Kola.
There could be great demand for Tulu pardana. These are melodious songs sung by the Nalke and Parava communities (Kola artists). I have seen traditional songs and musical instruments being played by the Aboriginal artists available in CDs at International Airports in Australia.
Just out side the Pilikula Nisarga Dama a souvenir shop sells very attractive handicrafts of South Karara.
These things are feasible only if the government takes some initiative to boost the tourism in our District. The Karnataka Government has built a Kannada Samskrtthi Bhavana in Mysore after holding World Kannada meet about 10 years back. I don’t think Tulu will get such an importance

The swamiji is correct. Tulu and kannada is the mother tongue unique to people of dakshina kannada!! Over 80 % of the people speak this language as their mother tongue.

Only kannada and tulu as mother tongues?. Is he dreaming as usual.
