In this festival, we are we are trying to promote Kannada and culture. We also promote talent in government schools, where children rarely get an opportunity to perform on stage. On December 4 and 5, we held events for government schools, where we give them all facilities, including costumes, training, dance choreography for the two-day programme.”
GKGS started in 2011. Apart from organising cultural festivals for government schools, the other two parts to these festivities include a two-day spiritual festival, which ended yesterday.
