BELGAUM,: Is there a dearth of anchors in Karnataka? The World Kannada Meet gives ample scope to ask this question as N Aparna and Shankar Prakash were the masters of ceremonies from the inauguration to valedictory functions on all the three days.

Manjari Hombali, a primary school student from Gadag, was a big hit with the audience with her expressions and clear pronunciation at the session organised for children. She proved that organisers need not look to Bangalore for anchors and there are budding talents in rural areas.

Manjari is also a Bharatanatyam artiste and a poet.

“We could find only Aparna and Shankar as icon anchors.

No doubt their way of narration and language are excellent, but could we not identify any other talents for the job among 6 crore Kannadigas?” theatre personality R N Kulkarni, who was present at the children’s session asked.
