Vishwa Kannada Sammelan in February 2011


The second Vishwa Kannada Sammelan will be more than a show of culture and has been planned to be held for 3 days in Belgaum in February 2011. This year’s Sammelan was postponed due to floods.

Government has earmarked Rs. 10 crore in budget; it has promised to release Rs. 20 crore more.

The sammelan will be a meeting place for successful non-resident Kannadigas in various parts of the world. There is a plan to honour the people of Karnataka origin who have made it big outside the State and abroad, B.R. Jayaramaraje Urs Secretary, Kannada and Culture said in Mysore.

Apart from sessions on literature and heritage, issues connected to the status of Kannada and development of the State would figure in the meet.

  2. waiting eagerly for this, as last the sammelana was cancelled as show of respect for the affected people.

  3. Oh …

    Finally date is fixed …. hope this will not postpone again…

    N Uday …

    This is first vishwa kannada sammelana, Vishwa kannada sammelana never commenced before this in any part of the world. We Belgaumites shold be proud of it.

    • Still i am not confident on the dates as GOVTpostponing it again and again, Earlier GOVT announced that this unction/celebration will be for one week and now they are telling it will be for three days.
      GOVT is thinking that, they are doing some favour on BELGAUMITES by celebrating this function in Belgaum city,
