A Country where Poets are tendered.

It is so tragic and pathetic that the Poet Ayyappan has to wait for the Minister for cultural affairs to release his mortal remains to the other world, where there is no Minister for Cultural affairs. It has become cancerous and highly politically epidemic a disease that the politicians are exercising the total control of the dead bodies of the man of letters for their convenience and political mileage. The artists in any country is either intellectual or aesthetic property of the people not the government controlled by any politicians. Here in Kerala it has become fashionable as well as ritualistic that the artists of any kind are belongs to the politicians as a dish for garnishing with garlands and guard of honors.
