Teaching foreign literature the Kannada way

Abhinaya, a theater group in Shimoga working towards the development of Kannada theatre activities sincerely from past 36 years has adopted a novel method to teach writings of foreign authors to students of degree colleges by converting and staging them as Kannada plays.

The theatre group consisting of senior teachers has produced several literary works as plays written by prominent authors in the state.
