Up Hill & Down Hill

The two important points in Malappuram Town are Up Hill & Down Hill (Kottappady).

Civil Station, Collector's & SP's Office, MSP Camp, KSRTC BUs Station etc are located on the Up Hill, while the District Hospital, few Government Offices etc are located at Down Hill.

The roads from Perinthalmanna & Manjeri and (2 one way roads - from & to Down Hill) meet at UpHill.

Tirur & Kozhikode roads and the (2 one way roads - from & to Up Hill) meet at Down Hill.

I was telling about an Old Malappuram. Malappuram has grown beyond these limits over the years. The junction where the road from Venagra (via Panakkad) was also developing at a fast pace.

I agree with the suggestions to have the Karippur Airport & Calicut Airport with Calicut threads. But the local economic development activities related to these oraganizations shall be dealt here.

Better to have matters related to Perinthalmanna, Manjeri, Nilambur, Tirur etc here itself.

Tippu Sultan was a devotee of Bhagavathi (Chamundeswari) , And he taken care of bagavathi temples like Kadampuzha, Thirumadham kunnu, Thrikkandiyoor in Malappuram on his era of 'Padayottam'
What about Hanuman ?

There shall be a Hanuman Temple attached to every Tippu's Fort.

Yes, But still Malappuram is the smallest municipality in the district. The fastest growing one is Perinthalmanna (plus Agadippuram-Thirurkad) followed by Tirur, Manjeri and Ponnani.

Hope someone will post pics of the mid rise commercial complexes and highrise hospitals in Perinthalmanna, soon in this thread.

Yes. There is an equation (may be political?) wherein even the adminstrative power is distributed at different centres like Manjeri (Courts & PWD Division Offices at Manjeri), Malappuram & Tirur.

Similar tactics applies for Idukki too where the District Head Quarters is located in forest land. Pacha Malayalathil paranjaal, anju mani kazhinjaal aana iriangunna sthalam.

Many of the district offices are still located at the so called 'Mini Civil Station' at Thodupuzha. There is a lobby in Thodupuzha with the complete support of an Ex Minister playing beautifully ever since the Idukki District was born and Painave (Vazhathoppe) was declared its HQ. They take care to see that the power of Idukki remains at Thodupuzha, which is more closer to places in Kottayam District.

From points like Kanathalloor & Vattavada/Koviloor and Marayoor, it takes nearly 9 to 10 & 8 to 9 hours respectively to reach Thodupuzha (A KSRTC Fast Passenger - (not super fast), if travels as per schedule can reach Trivandrum from Thodupuzha in 6 to hours and from Idukki it reaches Trivandrum in 8 hours !!!).

I think the district headquarter should have all important offices concentrated there itself. Otherwise, do not make it a district head quarter. It is bad politics the politicians play always. The district head quarter should be the most important city in the district as well.

When Kannur district was formed in 1958, Thalassery was a very big busy town and one among the largest in Kerala. But Kannur was a small town and the rest where all villages. During british days thalassery was a subdistrict of malabar and sub collector office was located in thalassery. Even after the formation of Kannur district, all most all the govt offices were located in Thalassery. It took several decades to transfer those offices from Thalassery fort to Kannur. The last few offices remaining were transferred during the end of 1990s after which thalassery fort was handed over to archeological department. Still the district court of kannur is situated at thalassery.

Yes. Even today, outside Kerala, people know Thalassery more than Kannur.
Even the Brannen College is located at Thalasseri.

But in the past decade things have changed. Growth of Thalassery has decelerated considerably. Due to several geographical reasons thalassery cant grow beyond a limit. Its surrounded by rivers on all sides. No new roads were made and no roads were widened after independence. Now its a congested town with narrow roads and day long traffic blocks. With no space for development new shopping complexes are coming in the gap of existing ones. Thalassery actually looks much smaller than what it is. Loss of thalassery was the gain of kannur. Kannur had enough space for development and it had wider roads compared to thalassery. Kannur has grown beyond the kannur town to be called as a city. But in the recent years kannur has grown beyond its limit. Now we have traffic blocks in kannur too and two lane roads are not enough for kannur. Almost 10 kms from puthiyatheru to thazhe chovva is always in traffic jams during peak hours. Now both thalassery and kannur needs bypasses without which both of the towns wont grow any more.

Now back to the topic.

I think, Thalassery always has a drainage problem too. Whenever there is a rain, water floods in its streets. Am I correct?

There is a miniature park at the beach. No? has it been expanded, or still in small size ? It is really enchanting to have the journey towards the North through that sea side road. We have a similar one at Vizhinjam.

Why Pattikkad is more relevant than Angadippuram ?

Angadippuram is the railway station that is close to the district HQ.
However, as per the decision of the Union Government, it seems (not seems - it is a relaity) that Pattikkad got more focus on development.

What can be the reasons?

I agree that Pattikkad - Santhapuram is the seat of Islamic University in Kerala (Al Jamiya Al Islamiya). But this university is under the control of the Jama Athe Islami Al Hind, who is opposing the railway minister's party.

Had there been a political commitment during the last election season, from the part of Mr. EA to buy votes from the Jama Athe Islami.

How does Madhyamam daily react to this?

If it is positive and if this News Paper gives over projection from EA, then the exact reason for projecting Pattikkad can easily be understood.

Also, within five years, a train shall move from Pattikkad to New Delhi.
