Sullia: Ailesa, The Voice of Ocean ® making news all over the world. On the auspicious occasion of its second anniversary, digital organisation will confer ‘Vayo Samman’ on Subraya Chokkady, a great poet from Dakshina Kannada District of coastal Karnataka.
Ailesa has already made preparations to celebrate the festival in a unique way with Chokkady and will be conducting a programme at Chokkady’s ‘Prakriti’ residence, Cultural Arts Centre Rangamane at Sullia Old Gate on September 4 at 9.30 am.
The celebrations were delayed a bit because it had already been decided that Ailesa’s anniversary should be very special. When we looked for it to be special, it was better to celebrate anniversary with a particular person and when we searched for it, we found our favourite and the great poet of the country, Subraya Chokkady.
He spent his 83 years of meaningful life (29 June 1940) in literarature in a simple, and unadulterated manner. It was Ailesa’s dream for a few days to be blessed with thousands of tribute to gurus as much as the age of Chokkady, who, in spite of 83 years of uninterrupted life, had given a new definition to the spirit of life. It is travelling on a smooth path with the self-confidence that it will be fulfilled on Sunday September 4 at Vanasiri, the courtyard of the poet’s house.
On this occasion, he will be conferred with the unique honour of “Vayo Samman” in honour of the poet’s meaningful literary life. In this simple ceremony without a shawl or a garland, Ailesa is all set to present a guru’s honorarium according to his age by trying to relive the memories of the poet’s life with some intimate gifts.
