SHIMOGA: “Harate”, as the title of the function itself suggests, was a gathering of humorous speakers to chit chat organised at the Gayatri Mangalya Mandir here on Sunday.
However, the message presented in humorous way that emanated related to the values of life.
Noted humorists such as Hiremagalur Kannan, leader of the Samskar Bharathi Chakravathy Tirumagan, columnist Chakravarthy Soolibele, Nagamani Sastry, Y.V. Gundu Rao and Beluru Sudhir Kumar, who participated, regaled the audience with their views put in a humorous manner.
Their unanimous view was that parents had failed in enlightening their children the significance of the moral lessons which led them to deride religious matters.
Gundu Rao likened the family to a music concert accompanied by the instrumentalists who sometimes correct the vocalists if their rendition goes wrong. He said that the family was not like a concrete structure. It should foster cordiality and intimacy among its members.
Sulibele Chakravarthy said that in the olden days there were as many as 64 relations in a family. Now what remains is the relationship between children and parents, he added.
Kannan explained in his inimitable style the growing tendency among mothers to restrict the number of children only to two.
“Harate”, which concentrated on the concepts of family, society and nation, evoke a positive response from a responsive audience.
President of the Rastrothana Balaga B.N.Arun presided over the function. Convenor of the local unit of the Rastrothana Balaga Nagaraj welcomed the gathering.
