more-inAlmost 94 years after his death, a memorial to poet Kumaran Asan is getting ready at Kumarakodi, near Pallana. Asan, one of the highly acclaimed poets of Kerala, lost his life in a boat tragedy at Kumarakodi in 1924. Aside from the tomb of Asan, the fully air-conditioned memorial building will house a museum, audio visual rooms, seminar hall, and reference library. The DTPC is also planning to start the Alappuzha-Kollam boat service through Kayamkulam Kayal offering sightseers an opportunity to visit the Asan memorial and enjoy village life. A statue of Asan, constructed by Kumaranasan Memorial Upper Primary School, is in close proximity to the memorial.
