Lasitham 2017 attract masses Updated On 2017-10-19
Kudumbashree Wayanad District Mission made a mark by coming up with an innovative Balasabha activity, Lasitham 2017, which offered worshops and performances on 10 Indian art forms. Lasitham 2017, the three day workshop was conducted coordinating with Society for the Promotion of Indian Classical Music and Culture Amongst Youth (SPIC MACAY) from 17-19 October 2017. The programme was kick started when Shri C.K. Saseendran, MLA inaugurated the programme.
The programme envisioned to transfer the art forms to the upcoming generation in its indigenous form itself. The aim of Lasitham 2017 was to popularize such art forms among the common people. Only a few schools had been giving classes on such art forms before. Even though the children were interested in learning such art forms, the financial issues had clung them backward. Through Lasitham 2017, the children were offered a golden opportunity to learn their favourite art forms from the maestros itself.
Presentations & performances on Bharatnatyam, Kuchipudi, Odissi, Mohiniyattam, Kathakali, Mural Painting, Yoga, Nangiyarkoothu and Tholppavakkooth were handled by Deepthi Parol, Deepa Saseendran, Abhaya Lakshmi, Vidya Pradeep, Kalamandalam Vijayan Asan, KR Babu, Thiagi Subhash, Dr. Aparna Nangiar and Rajeev.K respectively. Along with that Manipuri was performed by Basu Sinam and OttanThullal by Kalamandalam Mohanakrishnan.
The space for the workshops were provided by Navodaya Vidyalaya, Vythiri and the venue for the performances and presentations were provided by Kerala Veterinary and Animal Sciences University, Pookode. District Nirmithi Kendra Wayanad also associated with Kudumbashree Wayand District Mission in bringing up such a novel initiative.
