Malayalam literary conclave held in Pune

PUNE: More than a dozen renowned writers and several Malayalam literary enthusiasts attended a literary conclave organised by Kerala Sahitya Academy at Tadiwala Road here on Sunday.

The event held in association with Pune-based monthly magazine 'Pravasi Shabdham' and Kerala state department of cultural affairs dwelt on effects of globalisation on literature.

While some authors lamented about the inability of modern day writers to influence citizens political or socially, some others shared concerns on growing stagnation in regional literature.

The literary figures also said there is absence of innovation (in arts stream) in Indian varsities.

“I heard that Yale University is funding a project on how that varsity had been pursuing anti-student policies during last two centuries. There is a lack of ideas emerging from the west and hence, an amount of stagnation exists so much so that they say it is the end of history. But also they are giving ears to Indian and Chinese thinkers. Hence, we need to innovate,” said writer MG Radhakrishnan.

“We also need to criticise western ideas more or else it is like surrendering to those ideas,” he said. Meanwhile, writer Chandramathi deemed the lack of reading among teachers as a reason for the young generation not picking up the habit.

"Though the reading habit is reducing among youngsters, e-reading has definitely increased. But the regional language prose writers have not adequately used the option of e-reading unlike their English counterparts,” she said

Writers Zachariah alias Paul Zachariah, G Madhusoodanan, EV Ramakrishnan, Shornur Karthikeyan, Chandramathi alias Chandrika Balan, Saji Abraham attended the meet.
