Mangaluru, Nov 25: The inauguration of 'Angana', a venue for literature, culture and art activities, which was very much needed, in the area of the beach of Panambur to Suratkal was inaugurated officially at the auditorium of Chithrapur Math in a programme that was presided over by founder of the organization Leeladhar Baikampady.

The inauguration of Angana was done by Sri Vidyendra Theertha Sreepada seer of Chithrapur math by lighting the lamp. He also unveiled the new logo of the organization. He also administered the oath to the maiden executive committee office bearers led by Leeladhar Baikampady and blessed them.

Giving his blessings, Swamiji said, "The development of anything whose root is storng will be phenomenal. That is why various forms of literature and art have grown exponentially from our tradition. The Chithrapur math is known for creative activities of various forms since its inception. There is no doubt that the Angana, which will be the venue for various art, literature activities, will also be renowned in some time. The math will always support activities that have clear aims."

Speaking on the occasion, renowned senor stage artiste Geetha Suratkal said, "By giving the place for Angana, Chithrapur math has already heralded the planned activities of the organization. Let this venue become active with numerous art activities and become famous."

So this is really a fruitful attempt."
