For the second consecutive year, the Krisha Vesha competition organised by the Kalkura Foundation to mark the Krishnajanmastami celebrations, will go online. It is due to COVID-19 restrictions. Children can take part in 38 segments of the competition this year.
Talking to reporters here on Tuesday, president of Kalkura Foundation S. Pradeep Kumar Kalkura said that participants have to register their names on the website, https://kalkurakrishnavesa.online.
Then, two-minute videos of Krisha Vesha related to the respective categories should be sent to email IDs concerned by August 28. Every participant will receive e-participation certificate, while winners will receive prizes, which will be sent by SpeedPost.
Mr. Kalkura said that the competition started 36 years ago as an event to spread awareness on Lord Krishna. As many as eight students participated in the first year of the event. Subsequently, the event was held on the premises of Sri Kadri Manjunatha Temple in the city. Due to the pandemic, the event was held online last year and there were 8,500 participants, some of whom were from abroad. This year too, it is being held online. A young team of 10 technicians will be working in the back-end to ensure the participants do not have hiccups in sending videos this year, he said.
