Addressing the gathering, Ambathanaya Mudradi said that the programme has been organised in the moonlight. The organizer Shekar Ajekar has given utmost importance to the programme. Shekar is an ardent lover of Kannada literature, from the past 6 years, he has been organizing this programme and recognizing achievers in various fields.

He further said that now a days people are hesitant to speak Kannada. “We should work hard to retain Kannada. Those who forget Kannada are forgetting their own mother.” He stressed that parents should teach their children Kannada and speak it at home. He wished the organizer all success.

Addressing the gathering, president of Kannada Sahitya Parishat Karkala, B C Rao said that in this modern world Kannada is losing its importance. “To retain Kannada language, we need to use it whenever and wherever possible. Beladingala Sahitya Sammelana has brought many achievers together. Let this be a successful event.

President of Beladingala Sahitya Sammelana, A S N Hebbar said that these days parents do not speak Kannada with their children. “At home they speak English, which creates communication gap between the children and grand parents who are unable to understand English.” He urged the parents to speak Kannada at home.
