    Dear Readers,

    I am glad that the fine arts performance is at peak in Jaffna Medical Faculty. Thanks to Dr. Sivajokan for promoting such a wonderful instrument in many ways.

    I agree with Dr. Sivajokan about the history of the Drama in the medical schools were primarily for the purpose of entertainment including humorous in nature. (Sexual, medical incidents as well as impersonating and mimicry)

    But I am proud to say that from the beginning of our Medical School the Fine arts performance especially educational and conceptual theme drama and Broadway shows (Koothu) were traditionally performed by the medical students.

    I remember as 2nd Batch student in Kaithady in my 1st year (1979) performed a Thala Laya Naadakam (Rhythmic Broadway show) coached by Dr.Chandrakumar then our Physiology lecturer. Subsequently he coached and performed to the Jaffna public on how the south Indian kings dominated the Sri Lankan territory in Koothu form. It was really a hit.

    The pinnacle of my carrier when I was in my final year (1984) we performed to the Jaffna Public with the American Ambassador as our chief guest was ‘Death of a pocket watch’ coached by the famous Mr.Mounaguru. In that performance I acted as the old man who died was really a touching performance. In fact we performed so well that Mr.Mounaguru wanted to take this performance at national level but we politely refused because of time restrains.

    These facts are for the readers who did not know the history of our esteemed medical faculty. I have some pictures still preserved from some of these performance and will post it when time permits.
    Thanks
