Kiev meets Kallar as Kurkov calls on Lakshmikutty Amma

T'puram: Kallar witnessed a rare commingling of cultures when Kiev-resident Andrei Kurkov, a leading light of modern Russian literature, variously compared to Dosteovski, Bulgakov, Conrad and Murakami visited the woodland home of native healer Lakshmikutty 'Vanamuthassi' Amma, who was honoured with the Padma Shri, restoring a modicum of credibility to the award itself. Kurkov in town as the keynote speaker in MBIFL '18, said that she would live on as a legend in the family lores of the thousands she has saved from snake-bites and otherwise healed. Helmer Sreekumar who read of the forest granma's plight in 'Mathrubhumi weekend' has promised to construct a house and museum for her. Architect Shankar too accompanied him.
