Linguistic harmony need of the hour: Volga

Famed Telugu writer, Lalitakumari (Volga) said, cultural enrichment can be possible only through linguistic harmony and regretted that politicians were scuttling the efforts of cultural ambassadors to bring in linguistic harmony.

Speaking at the silver jubilee celebrations of North Karnataka Women Writers Association here, she said women writers were making a mark in the literary world in recent times and were off the beaten track. Literature by women is taking a new turn, with writers harping on contemporary issues. They have begun to question exploitation, Volga said.

She offered to organize interaction sessions on literary works in Telugu and Kannada in Andhra Pradesh and invited Kannada writers to Andhra Pradesh. She said Telugu writers would be pleased to participate in such sessions anywhere in Karnataka.
