Writers are the custodians of the agreements of the ‘Word’ - Ka
Kottayam 15 March 2017
It is the language that civilizes the humans and those who are denied its usage may turn out to be abnormal, said noted writer and critic Mr. Kalpetta Narayanan. He was inaugurating the Official Language Conference of the Rubber Board in a function held at Kottayam today. It is said that ‘from the first he was the word’. The covenant of the word is the greatest agreement and writers are the custodians of that. Language has to be constantly made anew and each and every new story or poem is an effort to achieve this.
Mystification using language is the character of all literary forms. This mystification and its dreams make life more tolerable and beautiful, he said.
Rubber Board Chairman Mr. A. Ajith Kumar IAS who presided over the function said that ego can be a hindrance in human interaction, but it can be overcome when the communication is achieved through books.
Prizes to winners of various competitions in Hindi conducted during the Hindi fortnight celebrations were distributed on the occasion. Mr. N Rajagopal (Secretary in Charge) welcomed the gathering and Mr. G Sunil Kumar (Assistant Director) proposed the vote of thanks. Dr. James Jacob (Director, Research) and Mr. V Mohanan (Jt. Rubber Production Commissioner) also participated.
