The 3rd anniversary of Yuvajana Vibhagam of Kerala Brahmana Sabha Kozhikode was marked with SPLASH 2013 – a one day trip to Sadhoo Merry Kingdom Water Park in Chala, Kannur district. Around 20 members were involved with this trip. The one day trip was held on Sunday, the 13th day of October2013. Yuvajana Vibhagam President Sri. Ram Kumar K B and Secretary Sri. Subramaniam T K lead the team for this visit. The team comprising of children, ladies, seniors as well as youth flagged off their journey in the morning train to Kannur. It was a pleasant fine morning that the team started their visit to the hillsides of Chala in Kannur district. Singing and enjoying the train journey was one such experience which was pretty new to all members. The surprise package of this visit turned out to be the birthday celebration of the wing’s Vice President Sri. Kiran C G, wherein the birthday cake was cut in the train. This was a first time ever celebration that he had. Here goes his words on the celebration – “ Thank Thanks – I am speechless and am not getting words to express my feelings”.
The members enjoyed their time in the Gama’s Ship which gave a glimpse to the historic Vasco D Gama visit to the Malabar region in the early decades. Mr. Gopalakrishnan M S (Crew Head), who himself is a retired nautical engineer briefed the crew on the historic Gama visit. The Sadhoo express was left with no more space as the crew occupied all seats for their stroll around the park. The team then took a virtual 3d ride at the 3d theatre and then had their foot dance to the tunes of Gagnam and Pistah Suma at the rain themed dance floor. Tora Tora, See Saws, Net slide, Roller Coasters and the Pirates Ship were few rides that the crew took in the pre lunch session. The crew then had a sumptuous lunch at the restaurant where Lays took the pride. Post lunch session saw the crew members enjoy their time in the cool water and bullet slides. Final mix was always left for the waves to mount by as the crew were all at the wave pool for the ups n downs. ‘Meesha Mama’ and ‘Shippu Mami’ were the find of the season with Sri. Gopalakrishnan M S and Smt. Pushpa Anandh attaining these Titles along the days trip.
Apart from Calicut, the crew also had participation from Kottayam district also. Sri. Sriram S Iyer (Tarang specialist) was one passenger in the crew. Here goes his experience in a few words – “Had a Wonderful experience in my first ever trip to a water theme park ….. It was an immense pleasure spending time with you guys. Thanks a Lot for this opportunity and hospitality. Leaving Calicut Half – Heartedly”. Taking pride in these words, the trip turned out be the best ever of the trips that the wing has had and the most memorable one among the lot. The words from other crew members were such – “When is the next trip ? “. Three years into service, this event adds on as yet another feather to the golden cap of Orangepada – the vibrant Youth front of Kerala Brahmana Sabha Kozhikode.


Strong participation from Kozhikode at the 43rd AGM

The 43rd Annual General meeting was held at Kottayam on the dates of 28th (Saturday) and 29th (Sunday) of September 2013. The 2 day bound function along with Saamskarika Kalamela and Tarang 2013 was well attended by a 50 member contingent from the district. The team led by District Secretary Sri. Ram Kumar K B left for Kottayam by Janshatabdi express on Saturday morning to participate in the program. For Saamskarika Kalamela, Kum. Priyakaveri V V, Kum. Manthra G and Kum. Vaishnavi Mohan represented the district with their strong participation in Manthrochaaranam, Slokam Chollal and Kolamidal with Kum. Priyakaveri V V winning the First prize in her event. The Saturday evening saw Kozhikode hit the stages of Tarang 2013 with 3 different performances. An eye catching, vibrant and lively Semi classical Fusion by the trio of Mast. Vivek, Kum. Sreelakshmi and Kum. Swathi enthralled the KBS audience and  left them spellbound that the classical dance remains to Kozhikode alone. Such was the enigma that they flowed down that this was to rate as the best performance of the evening.
To add to the icing, UNEVENZ rocked the stage with their dance Mix. The team comprised of Sri. Ramesh R, Sri. Arun Kumar A S, Sri. Gopalakrishnan N V, Sri. Bhaskar Harish, Sri. Ramkumar K B and Sri. Kiran C G. A duet song by Kum. Sneha and Sri. Ram Kumar was another melody worth listening. Last but not the least, the duet members along with Sri. Kiran C G rocked and rolled the floor with their final medley mix and once again proved that singing or dancing; call it – its with Kozhikode. A Song for Friendship was the theme applied and it was not just Kiran, Ram or  Sneha to perform but the entire contingent from Kozhikode were there on the stage to be the flavor. The performance of Kozhikode members at Tarang was commented as ‘Tarangile Thaarangal (Stars of Tarang)” and this was the breakfast talk the next day too. Sunday was to be kept aside for the business session of KBS. Smt. Brinda Hariharan, Sri. Gopalakrishnan C S and Sri. Balagovindan were elected to the positions of North Zone Secretary and State Executive Member respectively. 43rd AGM was one that Kottayam can boost of and its quite certainly was one where Kozhikode have given their part of responsibility.
