In the Malayalam article published by Mathrubhumi weekly, K. Venu answers some of the criticisms that arose regarding the Muziris Heritage Project,a celebrated project that is monumental in Kerala’s history.
A massive research initiative has been going on in Pattanam since 2007 by KCHR under the leadership of Dr. Shelvakumar, involving scientists, researchers, and research students from Kerala and different regions of India as well as from various countries and universities in the world. KCHR makes an effort to discover all aspects of a heritage culture by integrating various scientific disciplines. A 2,000-year-old port civilization has been unearthed through excavations. People like MGS Narayanan can't turn a blind eye to this reality, says Venu. Venu criticised the article by MGS Narayanan on Pattanam excavations. The writer criticises the allegations made in the weekly by MGS Narayanan about the Pattanam excavation as untrue. The truth about Muziris should come out through healthy communication and research and not through one-sided arguments. Why should one be opposed to the Pattanam excavation changing the systematic understanding of Kerala history? asks Venu.
