On the International Workers Day, CISSA gifted something special for Manjeri. It was a day of workshop titled, ‘Food: Beauty and Beast in it’ from 10am to 2pm at Government Girls Higher Secondary School auditorium. There was nice participation from people of all walks including the most needed listeners – the school children. The programme was inaugurated by Prof. V.P. Sasidharan, Principal, Govt. Medical College, Manjeri. He lauded the activities CISSA has been doing which must be emulative for others. Mr. Mohammed Basheer, Assistant Education Officer was the chief guest. Also present were Mr. Narayanan Master, District Convener, Gandhi Darshan; Mr. C.P. Krishnakumar, Secretary, Kerala School Teachers Association; and Mr. Jayadeep of Kerala Sasthra Sahitya Parishad. Convener of the Organizing Committee, Mr. Vasudevan Namboothiri welcomed participants and representative of Oushadhi, Mr. P. Krshnadas proposed vote of thanks.
The brief inaugural function was followed by elaborate talks on good food and its health implications by General Secretary of CISSA, Dr. C. Suresh Kumar. A short description on Organic Farming was made by member of CISSA, Mr. Sreekumar. During lunch, matching to the messages uphold by the event, ideal local and traditional food items like rice soup (Kanji), cooked tapioca (kappa) and chutney were served for free to all participants. A doze of irrefutable butter milk (moru) was another attraction. Not to finish, the food was served not on the ugly plastic dishes, but on serene dry leaves of arecanut; and spoons made of jackfruit tree leaves, which brought hearts closer to nature.
