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

My piece in @MongabayIndia on relocation from #Wayanad #Wildlife Sanctuary based on my @MPhilCL @Cambridge_Uni research supervised by @EliaApos Ialso drew on my yrs of experience.Resettlement from #ProtectedAreas (PA) is contentious @csandbrook 1/22
bit.ly/3bjo3V7
& I discuss a largely ignored narrative:of people seeking support for relocation.Historically,resettlements have been poorly recorded; there have been evictions from PAs that have led to penury, isolation, further impoverishment, which I strongly condemn.There is NO room 2/22
for forced,induced,unjust resettlement. However,it is troubling that resettlement discourse has ignored the narrative of people voluntarily seeking to move out of PAs where they face immense hardship due to lack of access to education,healthcare, markets,roads,jobs,business

Dear @RahulGandhi,

People assume that being born in a political family is no less than a blessing, but little do they realise that when you lose your grandmother and your father to the same politics, then the picture isn't as rosy as it seems.
You can have immense love for the country you're born in, but i know, deep down how awful you feel when the same country rejects your mother just because she is of a different race and ethnicity.

Ever since you joined the political system, you were attacked, ridiculed...
and even called with unpleasant names.

Your opponents mercilessly attacked you everytime you fought them for their misdeeds and corrupt practices.

They, along with their PR machinery/paid BJP IT cell peddlers, never missed an opportunity of your character assassination..

"As time passes,it seems like the only reason to farm is if it is a hobby...All you can do in these times is grind some extra chilli as that’s all you can afford to eat with rice," says Augustine Vadakil, a #farmer reeling under the effects of #ClimateChange in #Wayanad,#Kerala. ImageImage
Once boasting of an "air conditioned #climate",erratic rainfall patterns in the area, coupled with capitalism driven changes in cropping patterns, reduced forest cover & forms of land use, are making #coffee & #pepper cultivation unsustainable in #Kerala. ruralindiaonline.org/articles/why-i… ImageImageImage

There is a saying in Bengali which means the house owner starts taking precautions once the robbery is over. For last three weeks @RahulGandhi became a poster boy of #Pakistan by his immature acts on #Kashmir issue. The realization now dawns that he must change track. 1/n
It is not known what prompted #RahulGandhi 2 try visiting #Kashmir last week, knowing fully well that the #Modi government got moral/legal sanction from the Supreme Court 2 take all preventive measures 2 stop blood spill and, that Gandhi would be returned like other leaders. 2/n
One may see the shadow of #Wayanad in #RahulGandhi's desperation but, to me his acts only helped the politically irrelevant #Left to stay in news. Left has a history of opposing Congress in States while joining hands hands in d Centre. #Congress's gains were short term. 3/n

A heavy landslide has been reported in a spot in #Wayanad's Meppadi region where locals say had a housing colony of plantation labourers. Many are feared missing or dead. #KeralaFloods
Visuals broadcast by regional news channels, said to be obtained from the locals, show a temple, mosque and some vehicles washed away in the landslide. The casualties are not yet known, two units of NDRF team reached the district, said revenue minister E Chandrashekaran.
The locals saved three people, but the location is apparently proving hard to reach even for the officials as the landslide has affected connectivity, he said. P Suresh, a Wayanad native and a panchayat member, said there could be a dozen families, including children, on the spot

Dear #Wayanad
We havent met but I’m sure you’ve heard of us.
Amethi. Amethi from Uttar Pradesh.

Just this morning we learnt that you are going to be Rahul Gandhi’s second constituency so you might just want to know a little about us, our relationship
& our experience of his tenure.

To begin from the very begining -
we first came to be known nationally in 1977 when we dealt his Uncle Sanjay Gandhi a crushing defeat on his maiden attempt at electoral politics.
It was soon after the Emergency & we were very angry
like the rest of the country.

However, later in 1980 we brought him to power when he stood again for elections, expecting our destiny to change with his.

From then on we have been tied to this Family and it would not be an exaggeration to say that we in the bargain forfeited
