Keeleri Kunhikannan - The Father of Indian Circus, under whose guidance innumerable circus artists & owners emerged, has been honoured on his 160th Birthday. The K.T.P. Mukku Road at Chirakkara has been renamed as Keeleri Kunhikannan Road.
It's a great news for a Circus Fan that the Father of Indian Circus has been given such a respect. Indian Circus Industry has been neglected by the Government. They are always eager to impose various bans every now and then but no compensation or help is given. During this time of "Entertainment on SCREEN", people are going away from the reality. Circus is the form of such LIVE & Real entertainment which gives entertainment to each and every person.
In this troublesome time, such news are welcome sign for the circus industry. However, so many other legendary people of this industry like Vishnupant Chatre - The Initiator of Indian Circus Industry, Damoo Dhotre - The Wild Animal Man of India and so many more are yet to be given the honour which they truly deserve.
