Kannur lawyer treasures gift from Gouri Amma
Kannur: Adv. Kasthoori Devan, a lawyer at Kaliasseri here cherishes the memory of receiving a gift from former minister Gouri Amma. He received a beautiful idol of a camel made of panchaloha from her.
In 2003 Gouri Amma who was then agriculture minister reached Kannur to inaugurate Krishibhavan at Thrippangottur in Koothuparamba constituency. During the function, MLA KP Mohanan, who chaired the programme, gifted the camel idol to her.
The idol in white colour weighed around 10 kg. At the same venue, Gouri Amma presented the gift to Adv Devan who served as Kannur district secretary of JSS.
“Keep this as a gift from me. Gouri Amma told me while handing over the idol,” Adv. Devan recollected.
Following the demise of Gouri Amma, this lawyer has decided to keep the idol in his home in memory of the revolutionary heroine.
Adv Kasthoori Devan served as Kannur district of JSS from 2002 to 2005.
