Mysuru: The Kodagu disaster and the environment concerns that it has thrown up seemed to be on the minds of several poets at the “Dasara Pradhaana Kavighoshti,” the main section of the three- day poets meet held at the Jaganmohan Palace on Monday.
As many 25 poets read out their works in Kannada and five others read out theirs in Sanskrit, Hindi, Tulu, Kodava and Konkani.
Both 71- year- old, Dr T Govindaraju, who recited his poem in Kannada and Cauvery Udayam, a poet from Kodagu, who recited hers in Kodava , focused on the recent floods and landslides in Kodagu. Dr H S Rudresh, meanwhile, read out his poem on the late former Prime Minister, Atal Bihari Vajpayee.
Thirty two children recited their poems at the first day of the poets’ meet, "Chiguru Kavighoshti” which was held on October 12 and 31 more the next day.
