PRELUDE...VALYAKULAM








VALYAKULAM...once up on a time ..during the time of Travancore Kingdom... there was a pond, and a bathing tub built in sigle granite stone ...for the use of the villagers. Hence the name Big Pond or Valya Kulam. Gradually it become the style of the people ...now its only a legend, like all our ponds!It is in Naranganam Panchayath in Pathanamthitta district, near to Kadammanitta and Kozhencherry. As everybody know Kadammanitta is famous for "Padayani' and of course in the name of the great poet "Kadammanitta". Kozhencherry is for its richness. But our poor junction was notorious for its wickedness and jokes!now its only having innocence of the past ...one or two actors still continue the very old show but without that much enthusiasm!! Here Iam trying to draw a vague picture of my favorite place...home turf...in my mother tongue...
