Marathi Sahitya Sammelan - American Style

With for 4 days to go for the “First International Marathi Sahitya Sammelan”, the Marathi community in San Jose, California is buzzing with activity. With renowned people from the film and music community agreeing to join the event, this will be an event that Marathi Manoos in America will cherish for a long time to come.

This event seems to have cleared a lot of hurdles. If you recall, this sammelan was planned against stiff opposition from a section of “Marathi Literati”… but eventually the ‘backlash’ seems to have melted away! Then came the rumours of recession hitting the event… and 2 days back Dr. Gangadhar Pantavane, the chairperson, voiced his displeasure on Zee 24 Taas about the “uncouth correspondence” by the organizing committee.
3M hopes that in the final lap the sammelan itself will take place without any glitches!
