Kannada Sahitya Parishat (KSP) which is nearing its centenary year should expand its literary service deeper into the society, suggested litterateur Prof. Aravind Malagathi.

He was delivering a lecture on ‘The path tread by KSP’ at a programme organised at District KSP office near Palace here yesterday to mark the 98th anniversary of KSP.

Malagathi pointed out that KSP too should focus its attention on social responsibility to bring awareness among people on pertinent issues instead of depending too much on the litterateurs.

He agreed that KSP was cash-strapped but suggested that a small contribution of Rs. 5 a month by every employee in the State would aggregate into a huge sum to really strengthen the arms of KSP.

District KSP President M. Chandrashekar delivered the keynote address. Litterateur Dr. Malali Vasanthakumar presided. Former President of District KSP Maddikere Gopal and Manasa of Tanu-Manu Prakashana were the chief guests.

Shantha Jagadish rendered the Nadageethe. District KSP Hon. Treasurer Rajashekar Kadamba welcomed. Hon. Secretary Dr. Y.D. Rajanna compered. Convener Mugur Nanjundaswamy, Taluk KSP President Shivamurthy, Litterateurs Kempachar, M.G. Basavanna, Hemalatha and others were present.
