Anushtanam Kshtrakala Samskarika Samithi

Anushtanam means rituals, especially those performed in temples. We aim at the revival and popularisation of classical art forms of kerala, in purticular, which were formerly performed only within temple permises. With the passage of time, these art forms alien to our culture and heritage. As a result, the present generation itself has been showing a trend to ridicule our traditional art forms and artists. If this goes on, we fear, that by the advent of the next century, these art forms would certainly become extinct. Should this be allowed to happen? we asked this question ourselves. The answer was No - so a few like - minded launched " anushtanam" - in memory of Evoor Sankara Rama Iyer, the doyen in the field of ashtapathy rendering, Sankara Rama Iyer with his dep voice and mellifluous rendering of the padams from Jayadevas 'Githa Govindam', raised this ritual to the levels of a classical art form. Anushtanam launched on 04th ay 1997 has established itself in the cultural map of Kerala with host of performances of Koodiyattom, Kathakali, Chakyarkoothu and Concerts, in addition to seminars on the various aspects of different art forms. Anushtanam proposes to institute Evoor Sankara Rama Iyer awardevery year for a performing artist, for his contibutions in this field. Also planing to institute another award for an up-coming artisit in this field. Anushtanam also plans to hold demonstrations, lectures and performances in schools and colleges to make our young generation aware of our rich heritage and culture.
