MUVATTUPUZHA : On 4th January 2017 at the 29th Revenue District Youth Festival  held at North Paravur, Nandana Haridas, 12, was quite upset. Chanting and crossing her hands she prayed hard for her brother K H Nirmal Das, who was participating in the mimicry competition in the HSS category, to come out the winner. She maintained her yogic posture, oblivious of the hustle and bustle, when her brother emerged as the winner of the competition.

Nandana, a student of Bethlehem Girls High School, Kizhakkambalam, maintained the same poise on Thursday at the 30th edition of the festival. But this time it was Nandana who emerged the winner in the mono-act competition in the UP category. This is the fifth time Nandana secured the A grade in  mono-act. She will also be in the fray in the storytelling competition scheduled for Friday.

 “I couldn’t believe I came out first in the mono-act this time. This is really a surprise as I could manage it this year also,” said Nandana, after giving a peck on the cheek to her parents Haridas and Rajani. However, Nandana was a bit upset as her brother was not at the venue to see her dazzling performance in the mono-act competition.
