Seeking Nila

Art on Wheels

On Day 6 of #SeekingNila participants visited Maranat Mana a traditional Namboodiri Illam. The children explored the architecture of the building and its beautiful surroundings and its pristine Kullam/Pond.

Later they witnessed the centuries-old glove puppet show from Kerala popularly known as Paavakathakali, performed by the last surviving performer Shri.Ramakrishnan. Legend has it in the 18th century, the nomadic community of Andipandaram from Andhra Pradesh migrated to Kerala through Tamil Nadu, bringing along with them the art of puppetry. The performances are based on stories from the epics Ramayana and Mahabharata and use the musical instruments used in Kathakali.

Later the participants experienced a train journey through villages to reach the Nilambur forests. They visited Railway stations canopied by trees and shrubs and created Art on Wheels !

The children finally met the river that they had trailed and studied. Gopinath Parayil shared stories of the river and the challenges faced in her conservation. We concluded #SeekingNila by setting afloat origami boats carrying lamps, with prayers for the River Nila – Mother of  a culture and her people !
