‘Basheer festival,’, a day-long programme organised by Asianet at Tagore Centenary Hall on Monday, that work on setting up a memorial for the famed author could be launched this year itself if a suitable site was identified.
Although Basheer had often said he belonged to Thalayolaparambu, Beypore also had a strong claim to be the site for the memorial as the author had ‘reigned’ as ‘the Beypore Sultan’ in his residence in that city suburb for many years, Mr. Baby said.He would like a memorial for Basheer to come up this year itself to coincide with Basheer’s birth centenary celebrations.
Dr. Sukumar Azhikode,authors M.T. Vasudevan Nair, P. Valsala, U.A. Khader, actors Mammootty and Madhu and lyricist Kaithapram Damodaran Namboodiri were among those who attended the Basheer festival.
