Rao Bahadur Ari Gowder’s 50th Death Anniversary falls on 28th June 2021.
As part of paying our homage to this great Badaga , we proposed a song competition for young Badagas under 25 years to sing OLD Badaga Songs (either from old dramas or traditional ones based on our culture) to Nakkubetta TV Ramakrishna.
With a prize money of Rs.5000 each to five girls and five boys (totalling Rs.50,000) donated by Abhimanyu Ari Jayaprakash, Mrs.Tara Jayaprakash and Wing Commander Bellie Jayaprakash along with Baby Shaiel, Mrs.Pakshalika Jayaprakash & Rishim (London).
We are grateful to NakkubettaTV Ramakrisha to not only accept our proposal but to make it a grand affair to broadcast the winning selected songs on 28-6-21 as Badugu Kathe Gakalu
As a prelude he anchored a programme on 23/06/21 evening.
