Kannur district is fiercely RED !
My auto rickshaw driver is a vocal member of CPI(M) with very strong views on societal issues.
He mentions with pride as we pass the village of Kalliasseri, the birthplace of former chief minister, E K Nayanar.
And Pinarayi, a town in Kannur district again is the hometown of the present chief minister, Pinarayi Vijayan.
Took some snaps on my way to Narath from Parssinnikadavu Muthappan temple.
The first sign on a culvert screamed, ‘WELCOME TO RED FORT!’
And we were entering ‘FIDEL CASTRO NAGAR’
While rest of India may flaunt Che Guevara only on tee shirts, the average ‘sakahavu’ or comrade in Kerala is very knowledgeable about the etymology,history and horoscope of the Argentine revolutionary ! 😎
Here’s some chumma clicking for you !
