St. Teresa’s college has refused to host the release of a lesbian novel named ‘Meenukal Chumbikkunu’ by Sree Parvathy. The management expressed their concern over how this event will create a percussion on students. The college had allowed the auditorium for the release of the book at 3 pm on May 14 but rejected lately considering that the event may create a negative impact and will affect the reputation of the institution.
“They said ‘such books’ would influence the minds of their students and theirs is a women’s college,” said Sree Parvathy.
‘Meenukal Chumbikkunnu’ (The Fishes Kiss) is Sree Parvathy’s first novel. The author was active in the literary circuit with her short stories. ‘Pranayappathi’ is a known work of the writer.
Book will be released in children’s park theatre, opposite of the St. Teresa’s college
