Filmmaker Adoor Gopalakrishnan felicitated

KOTTAYAM: Sukumar Azhikode, social critic, has called upon the younger generation to strive for realising in the present, the zenith of glory the nation had reached in its yester years.

Speaking at a function organised to felicitate filmmaker Adoor Gopalakrishnan by Baselius College here on Friday, Prof. Azhikode said eminent persons who were great admirers of India often spoke of the nation in the past tense. A nation's greatness was never based on the number of inhabitants but the quality of the people and the life they led. It was the challenge before the younger generation to realise in the present the greatness of the past and elevate the nation again to glory, he said.

He said Mr. Gopalakrishnan through his contributions had not only brought glory to the nation but also enriched the world.
