Karunakaran's death dampens celebrations

Staff Reporter

MALAPPURAM: The death of former Chief Minister K. Karunakaran brought a pall of gloom over the Christmas festivities here. Although carols were taken out and cribs were arranged at homes and institutions run by Christians, the festivities lacked the usual fervour owing Karunakaran's death.

Schools closed for Christmas vacation on Thursday after celebrating the birthday of Jesus Christ. Nature of celebrations varied from school to school. While some made it a boisterous affair, others opted a solemn and serious way. Most of them cut cakes.

All children of Sacred Heart Senior Secondary School, Kottakkal, were taken to a large crib arranged on the campus by their teachers. “We explained to them the idea behind making cribs and celebrating Christmas,” said Fr. Tomy K.M., Principal. The schools will reopen on January 3.

However, some schools have been closed only for three days. They will function as usual on Monday.
