Bahrain: B L Kanchan to Initiate Guild for Kannadiga Writers

Daijiworld Media Network - Bahrain

Bahrain, Apr 23: All expatriate Kannadiga writers in Bahrain will soon have a well-organized guild of their own, revealed well-known youth organizer B L Kanchan.

Kanchan has been living in Bahrain for the last 10 years and has served the famed social club, Kannada Sangha in different capacities like internal auditor, secretary general and vice-president. He is the chief founder and founding president of the ‘Mogaveers Bahrain’ (an association of Mogaveer community, hailing from coastal Karnataka). He is also the member of Karnataka Social Club. He is well-recognized as a stage artiste by Tuluva and Kannadiga community in Bahrain.

A non-vocational writer, Kanchan, has always dreamt of forming one such association for the non-resident Kannadigas, through which all the writers could be united and deliver their potential in a much systematized way. He further hopes, this will definitely help enrich the skills and talents of such available Kannadiga writers on the island and also contribute its own share to the treasury of Kannada language and literature.

“All the Kannadiga writers - be it neo or versatile – who are into Kannada, Konkani, Kodava, Tulu and Byari literary field are welcome to join this much promising writers’ forum”, confirms the initiator of the guild, Kanchan.

“The aim of forming such type of guild for the writers is to locate all the scattered resourceful Kannadiga writers in Bahrain and to organize them under single roof. Further, to facilitate them to deliver and to encourage them to contribute to the Kannada literary world in toto. They will even have the responsibility to nurture / mould the interested and budding writers. Therefore, the guild also aims to find out the new enthusiasts and to train and guide them to emerge as future writers.

Many quality programmes will be arranged by this proposed forum in future, so as to achieve the set goals. They include; literary based lectures, seminars, symposiums, hard talks, debates, poetry sessions, training sessions, workshops etc by the prominent writers and eminent scholars”, says the proposed guild founder, Kanchan.

“The writers of all categories – such as journalists, press reporters, novelists, critics, columnists, story writers, poets, authors, playwrights, essayists, scholars, well-learned personalities are most welcome to join this forum”, says Kanchan.

Kanchan further declares, “Once up and active, the future plans and programmes of the forum will be discussed in length and promptly implemented. Also, once the forum meets with its specific goals, then the doors are open to all other expatriate non-Kannadiga writers”.

All the interested Kannadiga writers can contact Kanchan on 39851852 to join this non-profit making literary organization or for more information.
