Thiruvananthapuram being a name difficult to pronounce and impossible to remember, the English quickly renamed this city in Trivandrum. Capital of Kerala, it is remarkable for its sculpted temples and its wooden palace

 translation of comments in the film: minute 06:26: We were in Trivandrum (decidedly, Thiruvananthapuram is very difficult to remember for a Westerner) the day when young girls had to appear for an artistic examination at the palace.

On the program, dance and vina.

Unfortunately we could not attend the show which must have been magnificent if we are to believe the sounds that escaped into the street.
