ALAPPUZHA: Preparations are progressing quickly for the 59th Kerala School Youth Festival, lasting three days, to be held in Alappuzha from December 7th. There will be 29 venues for the youth festival events. The places are named after the literary works of famous writers, who were born and raised or spent the majority of their lives in Alappuzha. The names of the places were chosen according to the nature of the events to be organized at the places concerned.
The venues (numbers 1 to 5), which are set for the dance competitions, are named “Utharaswayamvaram”, “Mayoorasandesham”, “Kalyana Sougandhikam”, “Nithya Kanyaka” and “Chilamboli”.
The “Oppana” competition will be held at venue number six and she was named “Ayisha” by Vayalar Ramavarma. The venue for classical and light music was named “Sargasangeetham”. The name of the place set for folk arts was named “Avanavan Kadamba” by Kavalam Narayana Panicker. The theater was named “Aswamedham”, the drama written by the famous playwright Thoppil Bhasi.
The name of the Green Flag is Hortus Malabaricus written by Hendrik van Rheede with key contributions by Itty Achuthan.
At the same time, on Thursday, the Alappuzha district administration decided to launch an initiative called “auto amicale” (Souhrida Auto). This initiative will help students, their tutors and teachers to get from place to place by low cost autorickshaw. The district administration is implementing this with the help of the city’s rickshaw driver unions.
District collector S Suhas said rickshaws bearing the “Souhrida Auto” sticker would be ready in front of each site to transport competitors, their tutors and teachers to other sites at low rates for three days. .
Apart from this, the organizers also organized 25 school buses to bring students and their teachers coming from various districts to the sites and their places of stay from the bus station and the train station of Alappuzha KSRTC. Although the organizers have planned 29 sites, the refueling centers will only operate at three sites. Thus, the buses will take the students to the food supply centers from various locations.
