Mysuru: Dr. Sarvamangala Shankar Felicitation Committee had organised a function at Nadabrahma Sangeetha Sabha on JLB Road here on Sunday, to felicitate Vice-Chancellor of Karnataka State Dr. Gangubai Hanagal Music and Performing Arts University Dr. Sarvamangala Shankar on her 64th birthday. She will be demitting office shortly on attaining superannuation.

Former Mysore University VC Prof.S.N. Hegde, inaugurating the programme, commended Dr. Sarvamangala Shankar in contributing for the growth of the Music University braving all odds.

He opined that Universities should focus on more innovative research instead of just churning out degree-holders.

Seeking good infrastructure for Universities to perform better, he opined that local talents should be given priority in appointments at Universities but asserted that quality and competence were also equally important.

Releasing the felicitation volume ‘Ganayana,’ Folk Scholar Dr. G.R. Channabasappa said that an infant’s cry is also a sort of music which commences right from birth followed by lullabies of the mother.

Dr. Sarvamangala Shankar and her husband Shankar Patil were felicitated. Suttur Seer Sri Shivarathri Deshikendra Swamiji graced the occasion.

Retired VC of Tumakuru University Dr. S.C. Sharma, Art Patron K.V. Murthy, Music Professor Dr. C.A. Sridhar, Oriental Research Institute (ORI) Director Dr. S. Shivarajappa and others were present.
