On December 10, 2008, the members of readers club visited the Kerala Legislative assembly. It was a dream come true for the RC members who had the golden opportunity to visit the legendary assembly building of our state and to see the assembly in session.
About 50 students from both first and second shift participated in the venture. We got the chance to enter the visitor’s gallery and the proceedings of the assembly unfolded right in front of our eyes. We attended the question hour session where a heated argument took place between the ruling and opposing teams. As a result the opposition team walked out to mark their their protest.
We also had the chance to visit the LA library. It has a huge collection of books which includes various journals,bound volumes of assembly proceedings till date, govt gazettes,and also reference books. Very rare government documents are the proud possession of this library.
From the library we went to the assembly museum where various precious artefacts are preserved. We saw numerous paper clippings of the important events that occurred in the past centuries and also the personal belongings of our former leaders.
The trip to the assembly was really enjoyable and informative. To see our lawmakers live in action was pulsating.we enjoyed the maximum and are glad that we could feel the pulse of our politics…………….
