DC Books and O.V. Vijayan Smaraka Samithi together will be conducting the Ezhuthiniruth or Vidyarambham on October 8th, 2019 at Thasrak, Palakkad. The Vijayadashami day which marks the culmination of the Navarathri Festival is considered auspicious for the ritual of initiating children into the world of learning. The event will feature writer V.K Sriraman, literary critic Dr. P.K.Rajasekharan and social activist T.R. Ajayan who will impart the first syllabary to the kids on the day from 8:00 am onwards.
DC Books in the year 1999 initiated the ceremony of Vidyarambham as a secular function which was later transcripted by different institutions in the entire state. Prominent literary and cultural personalities will grace this year’s Navarathri celebration at Thasrak with the three-day novel workshop beginning on October 6th, 2019.
By conducting the workshop and Ezhuthiniruth at the legendary Thasrak, the fabled land of Khasak, the setting of Kahsakinte Ithihasam, DC Books gives the ceremony a new dimension.
