Charaka Utsava
 

Every year during January, Kavi-Kavya trust conducts a cultural festival called Charaka Utsava, where in artists from all over India participate. This festival goes on for three days. Every year the festival is inaugurated in the evening and begins with a cultural performance. During the three-day festival there are several cultural programmes organized. In the evenings, there are dramas, light music, Yakshagana and other such cultural performances. During the day, there are seminars and discussions on contemporary literature, cultural and social issues.

During the festival we also give away awards called "Kayaka" awards to our employees. These awards are given on the basis of individual and group performance, disposition, attendance, productivity and most importantly quality.

   
 
Charaka Utsava is purely a rural cultural festival and is conducted in several parts of Sagar Taluk at a time. Most importantly, popular folk performance groups or teams are invited to perform in different villages. In the past, we have had performances of popular folk art forms like Kamsale Kunita, Karapala Kunita, Veeragase Kunita, Sri Krishnaparijata, Chowdika Padagalu, Dasara Padagalu, Gee Gee Padagalu, Togalu Gombeyaata etc. We have also had artists from Rajasthan come and perform Sufi Music.
