Thiruvananthapuram, First Published Oct 18, 2016, 12:08 PM IST


Sprawled over 9.33 million square feet, Technopark, India's greenest Information Technology park at Thiruvananthapuram is home to over 400 firms and a 'Ghost'! Don't believe it?  Just google and you will find countless stories on ghost sightings just outside the back gate of the Technopark campus.


 The 'Hymavathi Pond,' situated in the Kerala University campus at Karyavattom close to Technopark, is a place where many claimed to have witnessed eerie paranormal activities. Myth has it that the pond is named after a girl who committed suicide near the pond in the 1950s and that her spirit still haunts the area. 


The spooky place inspired a group of techies working in the UST Global to make an exciting short film with a funny climax that cracks the myths around the pond. 

The film titled 'Brahmadathan Nokki Nilke'  was shot in just a day and night and was released on Youtube in July.  The 10-minute movie went on to win critical acclaim at the Los Angeles CineFest-2016 and All Lights India International Film festival.
