The semester system has been keeping students away from theatre, sports and other extra-curricular activities, said noted theatre person and cine actor Prof. G.K. Govindrao.

He was speaking after inaugurating B.V. Karanth College Yuva Rangothsava at Bhoomigeetha in Rangayana premises yesterday evening.

Changes made in the education system have compelled students to concentrate only on their studies. They are either seen preparing for examination or stressed out after appearing for their exams. Despite this, Rangayana has been involving students to conduct theatre festival which is a good development, said Prof. Govindrao.

Stating that by delivering the dialogues one does not become an actor, he said it is important to absorb human values of the character and enact the same on the stage.

Prof. Govindrao said that Karanth was an inspiration for everyone as he had the madness to create wonders on stage.

Speaking on the occasion, Thinker Rudrappa Anagawadi said that equality among people can be achieved only through theatre, music, dance and other related activities and by launching big projects.

Later, actor Mandya Ramesh, who also spoke, advised the students to take inspiration from Karanth to reach great heights in the field of art and education.

Rangayana Director Janardhan (Janni), Deputy Director S.I. Bhavikatti and Rangothsava Convenor Saroja were present on the occasion.
