‘Cultural night' at Tallakulam tomorrow

Tamil Nadu Progressive Writers Association has always been at the forefront to discuss and debate on issues that affect the common man and the masses.

‘Cultural night' is one such programme, and one of its kind too. It is a platform through which contemporary social issues, problems and aspects of integration are brought to the fore through various art forms.

This year the cultural night has been scheduled for January 8 in front of Prasanna Venkatachalapathy Perumal Temple.

A variety in store

This year's programmes include painting exhibition on “Anti-untouchability history” by Sri Rasa and a photo exhibition of images captured using mobile phone camera by Saravanachari, Parai music by Tiruvannamalai Pappambadi Jama group, ‘karagattam' by children from Arasampatti, talk on ‘Madurai — traditional and contemporary' by popular debater K. Gnanasambandam, and on ‘Concrete jungle' by agricultural scientist Nammalvar.

A book of poems titled “We have not thought about the title” by Kavitha Kumar of the association will be released by its State president Arunan.

In an effort to encourage directors who make good films with low budget, the association, through MLA N, Nanmaran, will be honouring Prabhu Solomon, director of ‘Mynaa' which was a huge success in the recent times.

Apart from these, drama, debate, songs and dance performances also form part of the cultural night, said district secretary N. Sridhar and district president A.N. Santharam.
