Narayanan Nampoothiri (Ramesh Nampoothiri) Attoor, Shornur, Trichur District, Kerala A traditional Keralite nampoothiri, who is an exponent in creating traditional Kolam (Rangolis) using oraganic colors.

The interview was done during 2019 Koodalmanikyam Ulsavam, probably the last time he visited the Koodalmanikyam temple with Brahmadhathan elephant.#KoodalmanikyamTemple Festival2019 ഉത്സവകാഴ്ചകൾ 2019 – a moment with Omanakuttan chettan, veteran mahout. He is taking care of a famous temple elephant Brahmadathan for the last 21 years. He started working as a mahout at the age of 15 and since then (56 years!), he is working as a mahout. Listen to him and his story. Tearful Prayers😢

Video: Remembering Abu Dhabi’s Volcano fountain

The Volcano Fountain was the happening place for old timers of Abu Dhabi. It was a common location to exchange pleasantries, letters and cassettes recorded with voice messages that people brought from their home countries after returning to Abu Dhabi from leave. Newborn babies were also introduced to friends and family when mothers were discharged from the Corniche Hospital, which was nearby.

Many in Abu Dhabi still remember it. For all those who do, they were fond memories.
