Saturday, September 22nd, 2007

A Patana Sadass on “the works of V.T. Bhattathirippad and their role in creating social awareness” was held on 22nd September 2007. The paper on the topic was presented by Smt. Preeta K; Lecturer in Malayalam, S.N.College, Chelannur She talked about the role of V.T.Bhattathirippad, who through his writings fought against social evils of the Namboodiri community to which he belonged. He fought for opening of education for women, permission for all Namboodiri men to marry (only the eldest son had the permission to marry in those days), widow remarriage and inter caste marriage. His endeavors in bringing women, whose world was limited to the kitchen, to the centre stage are of great significance even today -she observed.
