Face of Vellayani , unveiled

As the Hon Tourism Minister, Sri Kadakampally Surendran, pressed the button on the console and the aerial picture of Vellayani Lake appeared on the screen, the audience held their collective breathe. The emerging face that cleared on the screen reflected the sheer beauty of the lake, an enigmatic smile hiding the mind behind. It was not a depiction of an artist’s etching or a sculptor’s chisel work. It was a real face that is well known and very much loved.
Today Vellayani Lake is no longer an inanimate water body, it is a lake with a face , a mind and a soul. In a speech that reflected determination and hope the ‘Face of Vellayani’, Mamta Mohandas spoke of the close relation between human and their environmemt and the necessity of the upkeep of the latter for the survival of the former.
