Tamil Makkal Mandram is gearing up for their Annual summer carnival - Kodai Kondattam 2017” which is to be held this Sunday, on June 18, 2017 at the DCR Lowell Heritage State Park. This summer festival is a reminiscence of the nostalgic memories of village fairs in southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu. The main idea behind this event is to showcase the young generation about the country side celebration and games. The events feature fun games, tournaments, Dance, music besides, shopping “Food Mela” participated by multiple food vendors from the area show casing the Tamil Nadu native veg and non-veg specialty menu.
Kodai kondattam is scheduled to start around 11AM and runs for the entire day with an array of tournaments such as volleyball, throw ball and kabbadi. Followed by various competitions such as Kolam, spot choreography and super singer. There are lot of games for kids such as sack race, lemon and spoon, tug of war etc. The visiting parents don’t want to miss the special “musical chair”.The interesting part of the event would be the various booths that showcases the traditional games of Tamil culture such as Pambaram (TOP) and Pallanguzhi (specialty village game). A fun filled part of the session would be the flash mob, participated by dancers from around New England area showcasing their talents. Any festival will be complete, without the aroma of yummy food. This holds good for TMM’s for Kodai Kondattam. The audience are bound to enjoy the sweet and spicy flavors of the various south Indian restaurants serving traditional and authentic foods of Tamil Nadu.
On the fun filled occasion, Tamil Makkal Mandram would release their second edition of bi-annual magazine “Tamizhosai” that imbibes the various literary talents and achievements of the community. Not to forget, all the proceeds from the carnival would be donated to the prestigious cause of “Harvard Tamil Chair”. What a noble cause that all of us would be cherishing throughout the life being a drop in the big ocean of Tamil Legacy.!!!
