Eyecatchers-15 : R K Narayan Birth Centenary Celebrations

R.K.Narayan, the master storyteller, whose sensitive, well-drawn portrayal of twentieth-century Indian life is set mostly in the fictional South Indian town, ‘Malgudi’, received rich tributes from the students of Madura College during his birth centenary celebrations organized by the English Dept of the college recently.

About 200 teachers and students participated in a seminar on ‘R.K.Narayan – the Master Storyteller’ sponsored by the Madura College Board. Thirty papers were presented dealing with the works of Narayan, followed by a brainstorming session.

Prof.Jamuna Rani of Sri Meenakshi Govt College, Prof.Thayyalnayaki of GTN College and Prof.Padma Srinivasan chaired the paper presentation sessions. The students also presented skits based on short stories of Narayan as a part of the celebrations.
