A song that people of the state have cherished for generations. ‘Balikudeerangale’ the spirited tribute to martyred revolutionaries penned by Vayalar Ramavarma and composed by Devarajan Master has been an inspiration for many years to people who have taken part in protests, marches and Kerala’s political journey. It is called Kerala’s first group revolutionary song and as the legendary song turns 57, a tribute is being organized in Thiruvananthapuram at the ‘Raktha Sakshi Mandapam’ on Thursday.
