The History of Pulikurumba


PULIKURUMBA: A sleepy village in the remote area of Kannur, Pulikurumba has not much to claim or boast of its past glory. Truly, it is a developing location in terms of physical and social amenities. If we look into its old face, one can trace the hardships of the settler families in the region. Most of the inhabitants are people from the South and Central part of Kerala. Kottayam people however dominate the region. Education witnessed a boom in the area with the opening of St. Joseph’s L.P. School. Changes started in the region with the consecration of the St. Augustin’s Church. Later on, Upper Primary and High School came up in the region catering to a huge chunk of the rural population. Earlier, people in the region were destined to depend on nearby schools in Naduvil, Chemperi, Sreekandapuram and Thaliparamba. Electricity, road facilities and communication facilities witnessed a development very late in the 1970s. The changemakers were mainly the parish priests who came to the region from Thalassery Arch diocese. The Sacred heart sisters who worked in hand with the priests to spiritually and morally guide the natives. People from all religion live in harmony here. Though a mosque is yet to come to the region, there are plenty of temples here. Tourism is also on the track of development with the adjoining Paithalmala hills. it is only 15 kilometres away from Pulikurumba. The small pockets of Pulikurumba include ‘Venkunnu Kavala, Thondan Mukku, Pulikurumba Palli, Balu kada, Pulikurumba Town, Kariya Mukku, Nariyanmavu and Kaithalam. The land is also proud of its children who are now doing their jobs in different part of the world and in different fields including medicine, engineering, media and education. proud to be a “Puli” kurumban…!!!

KANUR: Veteran actor Surendranatha Thilakan who was born on 15 July 1938 passed away at a private hospital in Kerala on Friday. However, the hospital sources were yet to confirm the death and claimed that he was under intensive care in ventilator.
Thilakan started his career in acting as a theatre artist. He ventured into full-time acting in theatre after leaving intermediate college mid-way in the year 1956. It was during his years in theatre that he honed his skills in acting. During this period he and a few friends formed a drama troupe called the Mundakayam Nataka Samithy. He worked with Kerala People's Arts Club till 1966, followed by stints in Kalidasa Kala Kendra, Changanacherry Geetha, and P. J. Antony's troupe. He also performed in several radio plays presented by All India Radio. Thilakan is now in the fiftieth year of his acting career. In spite of his long association with theatre, Thilakan became a household name only after his foray into Malayalam cinema. He began his career in cinema with a minor role in the film Ulkadal (1979). His first role as a lead character was as Kallu Varkey, a drunkard in Kolangal (1981). Thilakan established himself as an actor after he got his first State Award in 1981 for his role in Yavanika. In 1988, he received the National Film Award for Best Supporting Actor for his performance in Rithubhedam. Again in 1994, and in 1998, he won State awards for Santhanagopalam and Gamanam. He was strongly favored[4] to get another National Film Award for Best Actor for his performance in the movie Perumthachan. As noted in the rediff interview, the award was steered away from him to Amitabh Bachchan due to strong lobbying, as Amitabh announced his retirement that year.[4] The film Kireedam was a milestone in his career; in this film he portrayed a helpless policeman silently watching the fate of his son, played by Mohanlal, who was made into a rowdy by society. Some of Thilakan's other notable films are Sphadikam, Moonnam Pakkam, Namukku Parkkan Munthiri Thoppukal, Mookkilla Rajyathu, Chenkol, Randam Bhavam, Kaattu Kuthira and Yavanika. He has also acted in other South Indian languages, such as Tamil. Thilakan has portrayed a range of characters. The most popular roles have been with Mohanlal when they portrayed a father-son duo. These included Kireedam, Sphadikam, Narasimham, Evidam Swargamanu, Pavithram and Chenkol. He has also played father roles to other popular actors, including with Mammootty in Sangham, The Truth, No. 1 Snehatheeram Banglore North and Pallavur Devanarayanan, with Jayaram in Veendum Chila Veettu Karyangal andSandesam, with Dileep in Meenathil Thaalikettu, with Kunchacko Boban in Aniyathi Pravu and with Prithviraj in Sathyam. He has also played many negative roles. His roles of underworld don in Randam Bhavam, Karma and Kaalal Padawere memorable. He has played comical roles in films like Nadodikkattu and Pattanapravesham (as a coward underworld don), Mookkilla Rajyathu (as a breakout from a mental hospital), Kuttettan (as a womanizer) and Naaduvazhikal(as a good-for-nothing, vain person). He has played lead roles in many movies including Ekantham, Perumthachan, Santhanagopalam, Kaattukuthira, My Dear Muthachan, Mukhamudra (double role), etc. Thilakan fell ill at the beginning of the 2000s and was hospitalized for a long time. After recovering he slowly returned to acting. He subsequently made a series of statements in interviews criticizing prominent figures of the Malayalam film industry.[citation needed] In 2007, he acted in Ekantham, for which he received a special mention from the jury.[5] Even the film technicians’ guild, MACTA, made an exception recently and honoured him, though he is not a technician.[6] Thilakan has been suspended and/or issued show cause notices several times by the Association of Malayalam Movie Artists (AMMA), which made Thilakan an open critic on association's activities. He has also had issues with other film organisations such as the Film Employees Federation of Kerala (FEFKA) and the Malayalam Cine Technicians Association (MACTA). In February 2010 it was reported that the producer of the movie Christian Brothers excluded Thilakan from the film at the request of the FEFKA, the predominant film technicians association. Thilakan had been earlier signed for a role in the film. The exclusion was reportedly due to Thilakan acting in a film by director Vinayan, who till recently headed the rival association MACTA. On February 3, 2010, Thilakan publicly protested against the unofficial ban enforced on him by FEFKA and blamed a major actor for engineering the ban. The Association of Malayalam Movie Artists (AMMA) issued a show cause notice to Thilakan for bringing the issue into the public domain. Thilakan accused AMMA, of which he too is a member.[7][8] On February 20, 2010 the issue gained political colours when CPI's trade union wing, AITUC, came out openly in support of Thilakan, while a senior party leader and Rajya Sabha member K. E. Ismail expressed reservations about his party getting involved in the tangle.[9] Controversy led to the dismissal of the actor permanently from AMMA association after being asked several times by the AMMA's committee, headed by noted actor Innocent, to issue an unconditional apology, which he refused. He stated that unless and until he gets justice regarding why he was removed from the role in the movie Christian Brothers, he would not give an apology. Thilakan was originally cast to play an important role in a UAE-Indian co-production film Dam 999.[10] He was later replaced, following a notice from FEFKA stating that if Thilakan acted in the film, the association would boycott it. Sohan said they were forced to seek for a substitute for Thilakan when it came to the point that shooting might be disrupted.[11] Eventually, Rajit Kapur was cast instead of Thilakan.[12] There were reports that Association of Malayalam Movie Artists (AMMA) also had intervened in Thilakan's replacement.[12] In a related development, Thilakan and his supporters had a march toward the shooting location of the film at Alappuzha.[13] In the middle of 2011, AMMA revised their decision of his dismisal after which he came back strongly with fantastic performance in malayalam film INDIAN RUPEE directed by famous Director Renjith, co acted by young star Prithviraj. His performance got applauses from all audiences even though the lead role has been done by Prithviraj. CREDIT: Wikipaedia
