Nehru Trophy Boat Race

Introduction to the Nehru Trophy Boat Race in Kerala
Boat Racing is to Kerala what Bull Fighting is to Spain. The presence of so many back waters facilitates the flourishing of this water sport. The large number of regattas that are held each year in the state of Kerala is an integral part of the culture of the state. In fact the Nehru Trophy Boat Race at Alappuzha is held with such a lot of fanfare that it can very well be compared with a festival.

History of the Nehru Trophy Boat Race in Kerala
In the year 1952, the then prime minister of India visited Alappuzha. In honor of his visit, a boat race was organized in Alappuzha. Nadubhagam Chandan emerged as the winner of this boat race. Panditji was simply elated at their success.

Without bothering about the security arrangements he jumped into the winning boat. The boat sailed with him to the jetty. After his return to Delhi, a silver trophy was built following his instructions. It was to be given to the winner of that race. The trophy itself was named after him as the Nehru trophy. The trophy resembles a snake boat placed on a wooden base and the following words are inscribed on it:

“To the winners of the boat race which is a unique feature of community life in Travancore Cochin.”

Ever since, this boat race is being held to commemorate his visit.

Description of the Nehru Trophy Boat Race in Kerala
The Nehru Trophy Boat Race in Kerala is held on the Punnamda Lake in Alappuzha. The area is thronged by teeming millions who come to witness this spectacular event. The occasion attracts visitors from all across the world. The participants in this race compete fiercely to come out as winners. The sight of the men rowing the Chundans or Snake Boats is admirable. All the rowers are willing to put in their best efforts to achieve glory for their villages. It is a matter of great pride for the villagers to achieve victory in this race. There is a frenzied excitement in the air. The air reverberates with cheers and applauses.

Time for celebrating the Nehru Trophy Boat Race in Kerala
