 Meeting of the State Executive

The State executive met at Bharat Vikas Bhavan in Puthuvype, Cochin on 4th July, 2010 with the Sate President Dr. C. P. Girijavallabhan in the Chair. The programmes to be conducted during the year were discussed and an action plan was chalked out. It was decided to upgrade the free Sunday medical clinic presently being run under the auspices of BVP at this place to a regular Primary Health Centre working on all the days as soon as the collaborating agencies give the green signal for the same. This is expected to provide considerable relief to the local community consisting mostly of poor fishermen folk. 

A new branch of the Bharat Vikas Parishad was inaugurated in Thrikkakkara, a suburb of Cochin on 5th July with Sri. K. P.Sathyamoorthy as president, Sri. Saleel Sunder as secretary and Dr. A. Krishnamoorthy as treasurer. The inaugural function was attended by the State President Dr. C.P Girijavallabhan, The General Secretary Sri. M. Reghunandanan, Treasurer Sri. Pratapachandran and the Zonal Secretary Adv. Sri. P.S. Gopinath. 

Tripunithura Branch had their meeting as usual on the first Sunday of the month, viz., 4th July,2010. The meeting started with one minute silence in memory of Sri. Rama Varma, one of the earliest and active members of the branch who passed away on 19th June, 2010. An amount of Rs. 10,000 was handed over to the Palace Girls High School for the benefit of the poor student studying in this institution. The main talk of the day was on Rain and Music by the well known music director Shri. Srivalsan J Menon. The audience sat with rapt attention when he demonstrated how the music and the rain can go hand in hand. 

Cochin East Branch at Kaloor held its monthly meeting on 3rd July. Sri. Hari S. Kartha, editor of Janmabhoomy daily spoke on Globalization and the Media. Later, the audience was taken to a treat by the cartoonist Shri. Somanathan Nair who could drew marvelous caricatures within minutes. It was amazing to see how he could convert a square into a well known political leader and a pumpkin to the chief minister. 

Cochin Pashchim in their meeting on 26th June had a lively debate on the plus and minus points of TV and its influence. The ladies were of the opinion that the TV was good while the gentlemen said it had more evil influence on the society. In the end the president as moderator had to conclude that TV was good if it was watched in moderation while it was bad if you get addicted to it. But is it not so with everything in the world?

Kerala State Committee Meeting (August, 2009)

The first meeting of the newly constituted State Committee of the Kerala State Bharat Vikas Parishad was held at 10.30 on 9th August 2009 a.m. at Bharat Hotel, Ernakulam. Sri. N. Doulat Rao, National Addl. Organizing Secretary, Bangalore was the chief guest in the meeting which was chaired by the State President Dr. C.P. Girijavallabhan.

After the lighting the lamp by Smt. Kanthi Menon, Sri. Tilakan Menon, President of the Cochin Main Branch which hosted the State Committee meeting, welcomed the gathering. Dr. Girijavallabhan in his presidential address outlined the calendar of the proposed activities for the year 2009-10 and requested the meeting to approve the same. He also indicated the financial and other organizational problems faced by the Sate Committee and sought the liberal and unstinted support from all the branches.

Sri Viswanatha Bhat, Treasurer presented the accounts which showed the State Committee to be in debt to the tune of Rs. 14,000. The chief guest Sri. Doulat Rao in his speech narrated the various measures which could be adopted to improve the working of the Pranth. He expressed happiness in the fact that Kerala is getting included in the Village Adoption Programme supported by the Jindal Foundation in Canada, in spite of the smaller number of members and branches in the State. He was also happy that he was inaugurating that evening the Konothukunnu village branch which will be directly involved in the Village adoption Programme allotted to Kerala.
Representatives of six branches presented the report of their activities in the previous months. Chairman of the Kerala State BVP Trust, Sri. N.T. Karthikeyan presented the report of the Trust which is executing the village adoption programme at Konothukunnu village near Kodungallore Town. Sri. K.P. Harihara Kumar, National Convener, Videsh Vibhag and Sri. Balakrishna Pillai, General Convener, National Project-Samskar also spoke on the occasion. Sri. M. Reghunandanan, State Secretary proposed the vote of thanks wherein he sincerely thanked the Cochin Main Branch for hosting the meeting. The meeting concluded with National Anthem followed by lunch and later the chief guest and office bearers proceeded to Konothukunnu to participate in the inauguration of the new Branch there.

Inauguration of Konothkunnu Village Branch

The 10th branch of BVP in Kerala and Lakshadweep Pranth was inaugurated by Sri. N.Doulath Rao, National Addl.Organising Secretary on 9th August 2009 in a meeting chaired by the State President Dr. C.P. Girijavallabhan in the NSS School Hall at Konothkunnu in Central Kerala. The fact that it happened to be ‘Quit India Day’ was quite a coincidence.

Konothukunnu is a small village near the historic city of Kodungallur. In the ancient days Kodungallur was the most important port in the west coast of India. It also happens to be the place where Swami Vivekananda arrived during his tour of South India and held vedantic discussions in Sanskrit with the Royal ladies in the Palace that surprised him with regard to their communicative ability in Sanskrit.

Konothukunnu has now found a place in the Bharat Vikas Parishad Map of India. This is the village chosen to be developed through Jindal Foundation under Samagra Gram Vikas Yojana. The village branch of BVP here has 15 members with Sri. Prabhakaran as the President, Sri. Peethambaran, as the Secretary and Smt. Shabha Gopalakrishnan as Treasurer and they took the oath of office from Sri. Doulath Rao. The Panchayat Member, NSS School Manager and a number of the local people were present in the meeting. Sri. N. T. Karthikeyan, Chairman of Kerala State BVP Charitable Trust, described the background of the Konothkunnu Village Adoption Programme which is being routed through the Trust.

In her speech of blessing the branch Dr. Ms Lakshmikumari Director, Vivekananda Vedic Vision wanted the local women to take a prominent part in the activities of project and Bharat Vikas Parishad in general. She said that it is only through the work of the women folk the society could improve. She also lauded the charitable act of Sri. N.T. Karthikeyan who donated 10 cents of land free of cost to the Programme. Sri. K.P.Harihara Kumar, National Convener, Videsh Vibhag, and Sri. P.S. Gopinath, Zonal Convener, Samskar were also present along with the State Office bearers and members of various branches of Bharat Vikas Parishad, Kerala
