Festival to be organised for celebrating Beary language, culture
 

Mysore: Karnataka Beary Sahitya Academy (KBSA) will organize Beary Sahitya Samskruthika -- Sauhardha Mela, a two-day Beary festival, from December 30, 2012.

A series of discussions, seminars and programmes on Beary literature and culture have been lined up for the festival. Muslims residing in Dakshina Kannada and Udupi districts traditionally practise beary dialect. Now, they have spread across the state, with Mysore alone being home to 4,000 Byari-speaking families.

The festival will be inaugurated at JK grounds hall on December 30. KSBA member Abdul Hameed Ansari will present a paper on 'Beary people and others in Mysore and their relationship'.

Writers Bellipadi Satish Pai, Samshuddin Budoli, Ashraf Apallo, Maulana Mohammed Ghous and Shamim Kuttikal will take part in a multi-lingual Kavi Ghosti (poets' meet) to be held under the presidentship of Mohammed Baddooru. Cultural troupes of youths will perform Beary folk dances like oppanapat, kolkali, taleem and daph. Beary folk songs will be sung. Beary comic play 'Pokarakogo pursotille' will also be staged the same day.
