THIRUVANANTHAPURAM : A week-long programme organised by the State Women’s Commission in connection with the Malayalam Day and official language   celebrations began here on Saturday.

Dancer Rajashree Warrier inaugurated the celebrations at a function organised at the State Women’s Commission’s office in Pattom.

“The current trend of ignoring the mother tongue is a reflection of the people distancing themselves from culture,” she said.

Official language expert and Public Relations Department former director V K Narayanan delivered a talk on ‘The use of language for official purpose as well as in life’.

Commission member secretary K K Prasannakumar presided over the function. Prasannakumar administrated the language proficiency oath to employees of the State Women’s Commission.

Competitions in story writing, poetry writing, poetry recital and ‘aksharashlokam’ have been organised as part of the celebration.

The prize distribution will be held at the valedictory function to be held on November 7.
