The celebrations of language and lights were conducted by CREATOME, the students' club at School of Biotechnology, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Amritapuri, on November 5, 2018 at the campus. The event was at its pinnacle, elevating the spirit of our mother tongue Malayalam.
The graceful presence of the chief guest Smt. Kartiayani Ammumma, 97 years of age, who became the state literary mission examination topper, brought overwhelming inspiration to the gathering by reciting the poem of celebrated Malayalam poet Changampuzha Krishna Pillai. Her positive spirit influenced Dr. Bipin Nair, Dean of School of Biotechnology, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, to deliver a charismatic speech in Malayalam. Dr. Sudarslal S., Associate Professor of School of Biotechnology, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, the Malayalam linguist gave an outstanding speech on Shrestha Bhasha and its importance. Smt. Kartiayani Ammumma and her teacher, Smt. Sathikrishna, was honored by Dr. Bipin Nair. The chief guest also gave away the prizes for the winners of various events conducted as a part of “Malayalam 2018”.
Mr. Ananthu Krishna, CREATOME Literature wing Secretary, delivered the vote of thanks for the event stressing his satisfaction on teamwork resulting in the grand success of the event. After respecting the language in a great way the event transformed to explosively energy packed sessions for “PORU 2018” the tug of war competition where teams locked their horns for sparkling performances.
Even after tiring events, the energy seemed to be flowing for the Diwali celebrations which include colorful dance, fun packed games, bursting crackers and a 'lantern contest”, with all events happening with great enthusiasm without losing the essence of discipline and culture.
