1/5 Since I hv bn tagged many times to posts on 8 parallel TELEPHONE-EX busted in #Kozhikode aftr #IntelligenceBureau IB’s tip-off I decided to post my take. It’s related to series of events that took place in KERALA in last few days, incld GOLD SMUGGLING & Political turmoil .👇
2/5 Story starts with a HIT & RUN case which happened on June 21st. An early morning accident on National Highway in #Kozhikode! Car which hd Gangsters involved in GOLD smuggling hit a truck which belonged to their counterparts who wr carrying smuggled gold. Turf war!
3/5 FIVE people died that day. And soon Arjun Ayanki (CPIM) was arrested. Apparently he hd gone to Kozhikode airport to take gold consignment smuggled by a carrier, but was meant for another gang. Talk abt smugglers getting desperate! So how is this case related to Tele Ph ex?

Over the past 4 months, we’ve conducted Mastermind Kerala 1.0 over Zoom.

One of the topics chosen in the final heat of the event was this: Movie Theatres in Kerala.

Here’s a thread on interesting info I found while setting these questions.

#Malayalamcinema #Malayalamfilms
1. The first permanent movie theatre in #Kerala was set up in #Thrissur by Kattookkaran Varunny Joseph (as Jos Bioscope Projections), following his bioscope shows at #ThrissurPooram. It exists today as Jos Theatre in the heart of the city in the Round. ImageImage
2. One of the projectors used by Joseph was exhibited for a long time at #Sapna in Thrissur, a theatre founded by his family. It was finally handed over to the Kerala State Chalachitra Academy in 2020. Sapna, incidentally, took life as Rama Varma theatre in the 1930s. ImageImage

The hospital's medical activities continued alongside the missionary work.

In an 1898 report, Stokes also writes about his visits to upper-caste Nair and Nambudiri homes; he notes it was rare for them to come to the hospital, because "the majority would rather die than lose caste by coming into Hospital”
