Most exciting of all is the farming started at chappuram (ചാപ്പുറം), behind Anikunnam Temple (ie.  Tirumanimangalam Sri Mahadevar temple). Here we got some pictures. Hope photographers of our village will bring more pictures of festivals.

Kudassanad in Facebook

Kudassanad is moving ahead socially and it’s not limited in the small geographical place where our village situated.  A lot of us are living abroad for having a better life back at home.  We spread across continents. But the advancements in technology open up new opportunities to socialize with our friends and families all over the world.  Face book is such a thing. 

Most of the people from our village who are living abroad having a Face book account.  So, I created a group for Kudassanad to share and get in touch with each other. 

Only one request – be gentle in our discussions inside our FB discussion forums. Now welcome to the Face book group of Kudassanad.  (You can always access our group by clicking on the link showing on top in blue banner.)

Importance of Travel & Reading in Kids

January 24, 2011

We all know that our village – Kudassanad is blessed with divine natural beauty like green hills, valleys, paddy fields and plantations.  A number of little streams also flowing through Kudassanad.  If you are living out side of the village and coming back to Kudassanad once in a while, you may notice that our village is getting greener and greener.  Though, the beauty of our own land is a good thing, we should admit that the beauty of our land pulling us back from going out and explore other beautiful places in vacation times. Despite of its rapid urbanization, Kerala is a showcase of natural beauty and we got many beautiful natural spots to visit like Munnar, Vagamon, Kovalam, and our very near places like Gavi forest area in Pathanamthitta.   See what National Geographic Traveler Magazine said about Kerala.  NG describe Kerala as “One of the 50 must see destinations of a lifetime”!

On next vacation just go out to one of these places and enjoy with whole family.  We don’t have to spend too much for such an outing; we can go by KSRTC buses.  If you go early morning, we can spend a whole day there and come back by evening.   

Years back, the folks in Kudassanad were more active in reading.  Nowadays that habit is reducing.  But we have to encourage reading habit among kids.  Only reading can help the kids to develop their imagination and creative side. The power of imagination is directly related to the IQ of pupil. Television and Cinema are good entertainments and some times informative also.  But those can’t open more possibilities for imagination in mind.  So let your kids read storybooks and dream.

A grateful moment for Kudassanad
