Varanattu Sankara Narayana Kurup is a living tradition. As a `kalamezhuthu' artist, he combines a tradition soaked in rituals with artistic talents. `Kalamezhuthu' uses only natural colours, rice and turmeric powders. Here he is engaged in drawing a `kalam' at the Ernakulam Women's Association Hall. The event was organised by the Moozhikulam Sala in connection with the exhibition of natural products.
