KOZHIKODE: The 14th day of Malayalam month of Karkidakam is traditionally known as the day of copious rainfall, and a collective of Kasargod is celebrating it. ‘Kumil’, a readers’ club at Cheruvathur, has organised ‘Kayalum..mazhayum..pattum’ (backwater, rain and song) on July 30 (Karkidakam 14) at Ayiti Kadavu resort in Trikaripur. The programme will have members reciting rain related poems, songs, reading stories, reminiscing rain soaked memories and everything creatively connected with the monsoon.

“Besides, we would have hot peanut to munch, black tea poured from the antique ‘samovar’ (which was used to make tea in earlier times) and a venue to soak in the shower,” says Jijesh V. Saseendran, a club official. To top it with all, tapioca and fish curry will be served. The registration counter of the venue will be set up with sweets which were in vogue in the old days, naranga mittayi, puli mittayi, and soor mittai among others. The guests include writer Ambikasuthan Mangad, critic E.P. Rajagopalan and poet C.M. Vinayachandran.

 

Members who come from across the state could present any item of their wish in tandem with the monsoon ambience. “We got the programme idea from Payyanur where a group of youth conducted a similar event on the banks of a local river. Rs 100 will be charged from the participants,” says Balachandran Eravil, another office bearer of ‘Kumil’. The programme starts at 2 pm and winds up by 8 pm.
