In this paper, the author looks at translation from three perspectives: translation as a personal enterprise, as a cultural enterprise with a social mission and as cartographing social demography or translation as public enterprise. The paper discusses the cultural implications of a book titled Into the World of Kutiyattam published by Natanakairali in Kerala, and explores the articulation of public space where translation takes place in a significant way, in particular Mananchira Square in Calicut city. The author conceives of these sites as cultural texts. Rather than limit the idea of translation, he proposes to extend and push the implications of the term to different sites in my cultural experience.
