IAK holds symposium on rebuilding flood-hit Kerala
October 8, 2018, 2:38 pm

Idukki Association Kuwait (IAK) hosted a symposium on the subject ‘Pravasi Associations Possibilities and Limitations in Flood-Hit Kerala’s Rebuild’ on 28 September at Poppins hall in Abbassiya.

The symposium recommended that the Kerala government should mobilize the required funding for rebuilding the flood-hit state through investments from expatriates, rather than requesting their donations. This would help NRIs to earn returns from their investments, which would prove beneficial to them under the prevailing job uncertainties in many overseas countries.

Other suggestions made during the symposium was for the government to seek technical assistance from qualified NRI professionals in the rebuilding process, and for proper support to be extended to farmers, including introducing new farming methods that save cost and improve yields.

During the first session of the symposium, results of the Idukki Global Literature competition were declared. More than 400 entries were received for the competition, which was conducted globally in association with renowned literature group ‘Nallezhuthe’, for stories and poems written on Idukki’s backgrounds. In the story section, Shiny M. Varghese from the US, and in poetry section, Thasleem Kudarangi’s from Kozhikode, in Kerala, won the first prizes. 

Also, during the event, a magazine ‘Munpathippu’, containing stories, poems and articles by well-known writers, which is jointly published by Idukki Association Kuwait and Idukki Association Global, was released by Sageer Thrikkaripoor.
