Kannada Sangha

The ‘Kannada Sangha’ of Christ College was established in  December 1972. The vision of this Sangha is “to encourage young writers to involve in creative writings like poetry, essays, short story, novel and drama.”


Since 1982, Kannada Sangha has been conducting national level poetry writing competition in memory of the renowned Kannada poet and Jnanapeeta awardee, Dattatreya Ramachandra Bendre. The Sangha has also been conducting essay writing competitions for 35 years in memory of  noted Kannada novelist Dr A. N. Krishna Rao. In 2009, the Sangha started to conduct short story writing competitions instead of essay competition. A good number of students have been participating in both the competitions.


Many of today’s renowned writers first came into prominence through  the Kannada Sangha.


‘Christ College Kannada Sangha’ was renamed “CHRIST (Deemed to be University) Kannada Sangha” in 2008. The Sangha has published over 246 books including those written by students. The books published by the Sangha have bagged several awards including Central Sahitya Academy award, Karnataka State Sahitya Academy award and several awards endowed by private Institutions.


Several books published by the Sangha have been included in the syllabus for undergraduate students in Bangalore University. A novel “Kotra High Schoolge Seriddu”published by the Sangha was made into a Kannada art film.
