What is in age? 66-year-old puts on wedding dress
The much celebrated quote of athlete Jackie Joyner-Kersee ‘’Age is No Barrier. It's a Limitation You Put On Your Mind" appears to reflect in the life of this 'pretty bride’.
Sixty-six-year-old Kummariamma breaks into a smile when she was told that she looked charming in the wedding attire. She remarked, ''What is in age. We just have to do what we love. Aren’t we lucky to get this opportunity to play ‘Oppana’ at this age?''
A group of women, despite their advancing age, stole the heart of spectators with their enthralling performance organised as part of Kudumbashree District Kalolsavam at Kadavallur Panchayat. The seniormost bride in the dance troupe received special applause from the audience.
Apart from Opanna, they participated in the thiruvathirakali. Manibala and Vilasini, who are in their mid-sixties, were in the forefront in organizing the event. Neither of them in the troupe have performed dance before.
They finished in third place. They said this is just a start and would continue to participate in many events in the years to come.
The participants of the district competition were winners from previously organised competitions held at different taluks by the Kudumbashree unit.
