    Jayanth kaikini's tryst with his writing career, was very thrilling it was a very rewarding experience. Dr. Jayanth has carved a niche for himself between, Story telling, writing poetry, writing lyrics, for the kannada films, as an editor, and director of a private Television channel etc He has the great skill and stamina to manage all the above said things, in a progressive mannar. Three cheers to u Jayanth ! Good luck in the new year...
