Unnuneeli Sandesam
Unnuneeli Sandesam is among the oldest literary works in Malayalam language.[1] It is a sandesa kavyam (message poem), a message written in poetry, on the lines of the famous Meghadūta
Meghadūta
of Kalidasa. In the case of this work, it is a message written by a lover to his lady-love staying at a far-off place. The message is therefore written as if it is sent through a messenger. The work was written in the 14th century AD, when transport and communications were very limited in Kerala. The messenger in the poem is, therefore, a carrier pigeon. Apart from the message proper, the poem gives detailed instructions to the messenger pigeon, including the route to be taken and the landmarks en route.

Akbar Kakkattil
Akbar Kakkattil
Akbar Kakkattil
(7 July 1954 – 17 February 2016) was an Indian short-story writer and novelist from Kerala state. His works are known for their unique narrative style which has an undertone of unfailing humour. Besides, the tales that he wrote centred on teachers and their foibles gave birth to a new genre in Malayalam literature. His 'Paadham 30' is the first teacher service story in Malayalam. His work, 'Sarga Sameeksha', a creative and critical interface of a young writer with the iconic writers of the old generation is perhaps the first of its kind among Indian languages.Contents1 Life 2 Literary life 3 Works 4 Awards and honours 5 References 6 External linksLife[edit] Akbar was born on 7 July 1954 at Kakkattil in Kozhikode District as the only son out of the two children of his parents, Sri.
