Mangalore, April 28: There is a need of new literary works to crop up, which can boost our own community and instill respect for other communities at the same time, said N Ismaeel, Principal of Badriya College Mangalore.

He was delivering the inaugural address at the Beary literary workshop organised by Karnataka Beary Sahithya Academy at Badriya College in the city on Wednesday, April 28.

Pointing out to the landmark literary works of senior Beary writers, Ismaeel said that, if the Government or any organisation had supported those writers during the initial stage of their literary career, the ocean of literature would have gone deeper.

He also advised the new writers to write about their own community as everyone has greater knowledge about their own community rather than other communities.

Explaining the difference between Indian literature and foreign literature, Ismaeel said that when a good writer writes about the people of some other community, he/she may commit many errors and blunders.

Tracing the examples from great writers and literary works, he pointed out that we cannot see a good Muslim even in the works of Kuvempu and Anantha Murthy. “Kuvempu is a greatest Kannada literateur, who preached secularism and universal humanity, but, when we go through his works, we can only see those Muslim characters that do something wrong. This is not a deliberate portrayal. This happens when someone writes about the people of some other community” Ismaeel observed.

In the afternoon session, Abdul Khader Kukkila, a well known Kannada writer and editor of Sanmarga weekly, delivered a lecture about art of writing. He explained the budding Beary writers how to improve their writing skills.

One should not hesitate to receive advice from anyone, if he wants to be a good writer, Kukkila said, adding, “We should write for the people not for ourselves”

M B Abdurrahman, Chairman of Beary Sahithya Academy, who presided over the day long programme, welcomed the gathering and delivered an introductory address too. He said that the Beary Academy is committed to organise small and big workshops and other literary programmes in order to boost the local language.

Hamza Malar, a well known journalist, compered the programme.
