Brief Profile: The Bharatappuzha or Nila, a river that originates in the Trimurthi hills of the the Anamalai range, with a catchment area of over 6000 sq.km and stretching 209km. in length, is the longest river in Kerala. The Bharatapuzzhra has been the melting pot of cultures. Its impact in the ethos of kerala has been indelible. The Brahmanical influence apparent in the Vallunvanad regions of Kalpathy and Pallakad transmutes into vibrant Muslim and Sufi culture by the time it reaches Ponnani. Apart from fostering myriad myths, legends folk tradition like Parayi Petta Panthirukulam ,onnathallu, Chavittukali , Mudiyattam etc, it is a recurring motif in the literature of Kerala. Eminent personalities like that of Thunchath Ezhuthachan, Kunjan Nambiar, Vallathol and MT Vasudevan Nair to name some few have all drawn inspiration from Nila.
