#Onam, a festival in #Kerala to honour erstwhile King Bali and Vamana, the Avatar of #Lord #Vishnu ~ A Poetic Symbolism

Childhood in Kerala growing up was a pleasant time. There were no mad rushes, lot of rain and then, Onam. Onam celebrated on the Thiruvonam (Shravana Nakshatram) star day is a festival that is steeped in Hindu Puranic lore. The story involves the great King Bali (sometimes referred to as Maha-Bali ) and Vamana ( an Avatar or Incarnation of Lord Vishnu ).

The Onam / Vamana Jayanti Story, What it was and what it has become …

The story as in many Puranic lores is of the classic clash of a devout, efficient, benevolent King who is an Asura ( literally, one is not-a-Deva ). The benevolent Asura King usually causes flutter in the Deva Kingdom ( It’s king being Indra ) forcing the Gods to incarnate, kill the Asura and rescue the Devas. The story of Onam here follows this same storyline; only as in the other stories the symbolism is hidden, deep and often missed when one keeps celebrating festivals superficially. In the case of Onam there has been a systematic over-simplification of festival. I remember in my childhood we use to keep Trikkaakarayappan (Vamana) and Mahabali (sometimes called Maveli) as little clay pyramids in midst of the flower arrangements (Pookkalam ) we used to do in our home portico. Over the decades, this has all but disappeared from the celebrations. There is hardly any mention of Vamana anymore, no clay pyramids, many do not know Thrikkakarayappan. Some years back there was even a needless political controversy when Vamana Jayanti (Birthday celebration of Lord Vamana) wishes were given on even of Onam. The simple fact is, Vamana Jayanti is celebrated in our households and many Vaishnava homes just as it was earlier. It is just that with increasing commercialisation, securalisation of Onam and making it a harvest festival Vamana Jayanti seems to have been forgotten. This is unfortunate as Vamana Jayanti is Onam itself. There is no Onam without Vamana as much as there is no Onam without Mahabali.

In all this pell-mell of making it more secular, more harvest and less Hinduism, more commercial and less spiritual, more literal (Rich Noble Asuric King subdued by Brahmin Vamana and rudely pushed underground ) a narrative that suits the more left-leaning, liberal-leaning of the political spectrum has been woven into this mixture.

It is important that ancient India, it’s traditions cannot be painted with same brush. It is also important that one goes in to the original Sanskrit texts to reference stories of Mahabali and Vamana and read for oneself the narrative.

The Onam / Vamana Jayanti Spiritual Symbolism

Now is the time to resurrect the Vamana Jayanti Tradition, It’s symbolism, the true stature of MahaBali the Noble King. My poetic attempt at is below…

What is Onam without Thrikkakkarayappan , the Vamana ?

Symbolism Note : The reference to “Wild Sugarcane tasting ripe and sweet” is a reference to a Saivite Saint from Tamil Nadu, Pattinathaar or Pattinathu Swamigal. He was told by the Lord that he will attain Samadhi when the wild sugarcane tastes sweet. He used to go to the grove and taste sugarcane everyday to see if the day of his Moksha had come.

Free Medical Camp for Paediatric Orthopaedic Deformities, Cerebral Palsy and Neurological disorders at Palakkad, Kerala

So happy that we’ve had a very successful #PediatricOrthopedic and #CerebralPalsy #Medical camp today at #Palakkad, #Kerala. This is one of a kind medical camp, parent education drive and cross speciality clinic that we’ve been hosting at Palakkad since 2014.

This is the 6th year of my setting up Paediatric Orthopaedic clinic here at Palakkad Cooperative Hospital, Kerala and patient awareness of the problem of Cerebral Palsy, ClubFoot has increased tremendously over these years.

Sevabharathi volunteers were as usual wonderful and committed. None of this would have been possible if not for the commitment of Biju Bhasker and his team of LifeCare Physiotherapy Centre at Palakkad, Kerala. He has been the main organising force behind this over the years.

Today we had a Pediatric Neurologist Dr. Velmurugan and Pediatric Gastroenterologist Dr. Jaganandan join us for the camp. Both specialists are from Coimbatore. It was so nice of them to take time out and join our efforts.

With God’s grace we’ve been able to consistently raise the standard and tune the camp to make it more cross specialist so that patients can consult multiple specialists in the same visit. We try with every camp to make it better. I was discussing with Udayasankar CN of Sevabharathi, Palakkad that next camp should be much better in many ways.

I could identify some children who will require surgical procedure, plaster casts, Botox injections which could be funded, if approved, via the planned free surgery program at Palakkad for the #Bone and #Joint Day of #IndianOrthopaedicAssociation in the first week of August.

Attaching below some pictures of the event.

Pediatric Sports Injuries in #India – the #Palakkad ,#Kerala Story

The small town of #Palakkad #Kerala state may be one of the biggest contributors to #Indian #Athletics. It’s a town predominantly know for its large expanse of rice fields and farming community. In the past athletes like Valsamma, PT Usha have trained here and succeeded. Recently PU Chitra bought laurels to this small town. Many children here look upon these heroes as they train daily.

Recently Palakkad got it’s own first synthetic athletic track and provided a field where young athletes could be groomed better. Several promising athletes are in training in this otherwise rustic, tucked away place. Athletes who’ve successfully represented India at the Asian and Olympic level belong here and have trained here.

Most of these athletes use what is locally available in terms of facilities, gears, coaches to train themselves. The fact that until recently they didn’t even have a change room where they could change themselves into or out of the sports gear after coming from their schools or colleges speaks volumes of the lack of a system in place. Many are from very humble backgrounds. Driven by the need to succeed, as it’s very often the only glimmer of hope from poverty.

Things are changing though. Changing rapidly. As I train and interact with these children while setting up my Sports Injury Clinic here, I realise a renewed vigour in children, coaches and parents where they are unafraid to take up their needs with local authorities and get it done.

With more training facilities promised and the track and field itself being in the process of a long overdue upkeep and upgrade as I type this, it is certain that with children in #India taking to #Sports early and training intensively , #Pediatric #SportsInjuries will become more common. Though there is difference in the pattern of these injuries from those in the west, nonetheless, these required specialised care.

Just in last week I have examined and treated children with old hamstring tears who’ve not rehabilitated well, old ankle injuries with pain, back pain due to stress and renal calculi as a result of training in summer heat with very poor hydration. None of these children received adequate on field or off field medical attention. All of them were not aware of the type of injury they are having and its potential for causing premature career collapse.

I have realised that along with adequate sports injury prevention counselling, these children require counselling for sports nutrition and diet tailored to the sports they are participating. It is sad that while these could be given, not many maybe able to afford such a nutrition on daily basis. Mr. Haridas the coach of the Olympic Athletic Club here at Palakkad is so kind. Everyday he brings these kids mangoes from his farm. It’s little things like these that bind the coaches, parents and kids together and goes beyond simple trainer-trainee contract. The fact that he does this training free of charge is really something laudable.

This is the story of sports in India….

We need better facilities, coaching , gears but most importantly these children need better nutrition. They also need better awareness of injuries as they push themselves to greater heights.

Enthused Children, Happy Children at Sports Track and Field

Story of Anuiruddhan – Junior National level Roller Skater

Anirudhan V, Roller Skater National Junior Champion prospect ~ an inspiration !

Am writing below the inspiring story of Anirudhan V, studying in the 5th class at Bhavans Vidya Mandir, Chithali, Palakkad, Kerala.

He is the son of Advocate S. Vinod and Advocate M. Deepa of Kuzhalmannam, a sub-urb of Palakkad in Kerala State.

 

Aniruddhan with his father. His latest fracture a minor blow in his quest

How I met Aniruddhan and his father

 

He came in to my Outpatient clinic, brought by a common friend who’s son is also a roller skater. Aniruddhan suffered a fall while practicing and had fractured his right wrist. With a competitive sports time away from tracks and practice is time somebody else could spend to improve and get ahead of you. I advised his father that since the fracture could be immobilised in a cast with artificial material giving it some strength that a regular plaster of paris would, he could get back to practice with his cast on the same day. We could always do weekly check-ups to see whether the cast is becoming loose or if the fracture is moving and alter treatment plans accordingly. Aniruddhan’s dedication is so much that he jumped at the idea. His father, who has been encouraging him also advised him to do the same. 

 
This simple act of dedication and ability to tolerate an adverse event inspired me to ask more about him. What I heard from his father about him merited a small story. I cannot divulge many of his early struggles because of patient confidentiality, but what ever his father found non-sensitive I am sharing with the world to inspire other kids (and parents) who dream. Hopefully it would make them dream bigger and reach higher. 
 

His story, a simple inspiration

His story of how he overcame hurdles in his early education and learning difficulty by complete dedication to his sports and earned peer recognition is wonderful to hear. Not only did it help him achieve laurels in sports it also helped him overcome his difficulty in learning and progress there too. I suppose sports does that to people. With intense training in balance, coordination, fitness, struggle against odds, facing the exhilaration of success and depths of failure character builds. 

Doubtlessly.

 

Tough Life of practice, dedication to sports and education

Aniruddhan is now 11 years, in 6th class has been religiously getting up at 3 am every morning for the past 4 years. His father accompanies him to Coimbatore, a nearby town about one and half hour by road, where there are facilities for roller skating practice. After practicing for 2 hours he returns at 8 am and then does his full days school and then in the evening does his road practice on Roller Skates.

 

 

It is no wonder then that Anirrudh is a National Level Skater and deserves every bit of encouragement he can get. He sustained an unfortunate accident and fractured his wrist last week. Aniruddhan has a cast on him now, but his spirit has not been dampened. I have recommended to practice roller skating with his cast on !

Aniruddhan’s story has just begun. He is at the Junior National level now with mile of hard training struggle ahead of him to get ahead of the tough competition. However, if what I have seen is the attitude he keeps then his success is sure, in time.

 

He has now moved to inline skates and is entering the world of elder children with some tough competition ahead of him. I am sure that with his dedication to the sport and will to practice in spite of odds he will shine through and bring laurels to his loved ones and country !

The story of Aniruddhan is one among the many who have come out of all odds and made it to the top. Watch this space for more inspiring stories of child athletes, their battle against sports injuries towards victory.

I am Shiva : A tribute to an unmoving belief

It has been a tough month for the home state of Kerala, which is grappling with the worst flood in a century.  It has been a testing time for humanitarian work, for beliefs, for politics … for everything.  Theories abound as to what caused the floods ranging from human disruption of natural ecosystem, divine wrath, Solar Minimum year, weak El-Nino/a effect, a mix of these and several other variations of these theories.

I distinctly remembered on morning in #Palakkad as it rained. This was before the floods. The first day of several that were to follow that first drenched and then drowned the state. As I drove from Coimbatore, a border city of Tamil Nadu to Palakkad, Kerala for work at about 8 am. As I drove past the western ghats I saw that the rain clouds hung so low and it was an eerie drive to say the least. Never in my memory have I seen clouds so low. I knew something was amiss. I called my wife and told her something was not right. Nothing however prepared me or my state for what was to come.

The rains started barely minutes after I drove into Palakkad. It had been drizzling the night before, but it just got heavier and heavier. Pounding continued for 2 days and flooded north Kerala first. Then it subsided for a day over Palakkad on Saturday leaving it in floods, something that the natives bragged they’d never seen.

But still nothing prepared Kerala for the destruction they were about to witness in the coming week. Rain pounded Kerala (especially middle Kerala) in coming days and left it battling floods, death and destruction.

In midst of the destruction speculation emerged that this maybe a divine wrath (specifically of Sabarimala deity Ayyapan) and other exhorting people to ‘pray for Kerala’. Needless to say, the non-believers camp rejected these with their own rebuttals and even some going to the extent to labelling prayer as useless. Their argument being that prayer at this hour of crisis is useless. What is required is working hands at ground zero.

Of course, these arguments represent a variant of the believer non-believer clash that has been there since time immemorial. At times of crisis like this where any argument of a merciful divine force does not appeal with rampant, apparently unreasonable destruction all-around, it is a time to reflect on ones belief.

These lines were penned before the flood, on the day of heavy rains in Palakkad that preceded the flood. Even just seeing the rains it was amply clear that something was grossly wrong. These rains were not normal. I knew it as going to be trouble. The lines was also partly meditative, as I prayed for rain to ease.

These lines are a tribute to the constant tug of war in nature and in spirit that tests our beliefs : whether it be theistic or atheistic. Man constantly asks God, but…

This was also penned before, this a tribute to the my home state.

Kerala Flood : A Tribute to my land

It was late in the day, i was standing at driveway gate turning off the lights to my clinic. I just glanced across the road where the indoor stadia is. This is where young college kids are working round the clock , selflessly for the flood victims. They receive relief materials sent across the border and sort it. Authorities are scant, but I’m told the work is supervised.

I was struck how a fracturing society had gelled by a near cataclysm.

My two lines worth were penned then

I titled it my kerala (ente keralam )
