World Malayala festival at the Kerala capitalWorld Malayalam Festival is being organized at the capital city of Kerala, Thiruvananthapuram from the first of November, the birth day of Kerala State.
It is interesting to note that the organizers are not having much idea about Malayalam literature. They have put up several statues in different parts of the city. The statues of known literary figures of Malayalam. It is reported that some of the statues are not of those personalities whose names are written below.
The statue of Dr. C.V. Raman, the Nobel Laureate in Science is put up in one location and what is written there is the name of the great novelist C.V. Raman Pillai (who wrote famous historical Novels such as Marthanda Varma, Dharmaraja, etc.) !
Those who are familiar with Malayalam literature know that the great poet Changampuzha Krishna Pillai died at the age of 37. But a statue put up there is that of an old man looking at least an age of 70 !
There are also other mistakes pointed out. This is what is happening if political appointments are done in such positions.
