Chavara Parukutty; unrivalled women Kathakali artiste

Chavara Parukkutty is an inspiration. The first women Kathakali artiste, she defied all societal norms (during that time not many girls have come to learn art and dance) and to emerge as a talented Kathakali artiste. Many, in later decades, have followed the path of Parukutty and this date we can spot many women Kathakali artistes. Born into a goldsmith’s family in Chavara, Parukutty’s interest towards dance have come from her friendship with Leelamma Thomas. In a five and a half decade old career, Parukutty has performed in numerous stages and still in her late seventies she is no mood retire. The latest edition of Ee Vazhitharayil features Chavara Parakkutty. Ee Vazhitharayil, Episode 99.
