Malayalam Katha, Pokkunnenkil....

Kunchan Nambiar (18th century) is the inventor of Thullal, a popular performing art of Kerala. Thullal is a simple folk form. It blends the finer elements of performance and narration. Nambiar's Kalyana Saughandikam, (the golden water-lily) is believed to be the first among the forty odd Thullal songs he has composed for the stage. songs are full ofpungent and biting social criticism. armed with satire and humour.
