We have a strong cultural wing, which has conducted many significant festivals high lightning and events. They include the recently held three day festival on Kerala's Musical Tradition in collaboration with the international organization called Samskriti. During its inaugural function the then 83 year old musical maestro Smt Parassala B Ponnammal was presented with the first Samskriti-Sangita Puraskaaram (Rs 1,11,111; memento, citation and ponnaada)
