Vishwa Kannada Sammelana

The Vishwa Kannada Sammelana, world Kannada conference, is finally scheduled for March 11-13 at Belgaum. It is expected that a large number of prominent Kannadigas from home and abroad will grace the occasion.

The Kannada film industry will stage a special show. The industry is taking a 5-day break to participate in the Sammelana. There are going to be cultural shows and discussions relating to different aspects ranging from Kannada NRIs' problems, political issues, political history of the state and economic development.

The state government is stated to be active in at least 39 countries to woo NRIs and PIOs of Kannada lineage for the event; however, the response is reported to be tepid.
