Eswaran Namboodiri of Nilavana Illam was his father. His
mother, Parvathy Amma came from a poor but respectable
Nair family near Changanacherry, in North Travancore.
In 1924 he took part in the Vaikkom and
Guruvayoor temple-entry and anti-untouchability agitation.
He became a member of the Indian National Congress in 1947
and took part in the Travancore State Congress agitation
against Sir C.P Ramaswamy Iyer’s administration in
Travancore. In 1949 Padmanabhan became a member of the
Travancore Legislative Assembly. In 1959 he led a united
opposition against the State Communist Ministry which had
become unpopular. This ultimately resulted in inviting
President’s rule to Kerala. During all these years the
Nair Service Society had his constant attention and
selfless service. It had now grown into a powerful
organisation with a vast membership, substantial finances
and various welfare activities. Besides looking after this
work, Padmanabhan wrote many articles, an autobiography,
and a travel book, Our Trip to the Federated Malay
States, some criticisms and a novel, Snehalata.

also set up colleges, schools, hospitals and industrial
units. In appreciation of his valuable services the

V. K. Krishna Menon
born May 3, 1897, Calicut, India and died October 6, 1974, New Delhi
He was really a great Indian nationalist and champion of India's anti-colonialism and neutralism.
After studying at the London School of Economics, Menon was called to the bar at the Middle Temple. He became an ardent Socialist and served as a Labour member of the St. Pancras Borough Council from 1934 to 1947. His primary political interest in England centred in the struggle for freedom in India, however, and he strove tirelessly in this cause as secretary of the India League from 1929. His long and close relationship with Jawaharlal Nehru, nationalist and first prime minister of independent India, began during that period.
With the coming of Indian independence in 1947, Krishna Menon was appointed high commissioner (ambassador) of India in London. He returned to India in 1952 after 27 years of residence in England, becoming a member of the Indian Parliament in 1953, minister without portfolio in 1956, and minister for defense in 1957. From 1952 to 1960 he represented India in the General Assembly of the United Nations, where his vigorous presentation of anti-colonial and neutralist policies of his government won him many admirers.
As minister of defense, he brought new vigour to his office and introduced many far-reaching changes, but his policies and methods received heavy criticism, and the military reverses suffered by India at the hands of the Chinese in the Himalayas in 1962 were attributed by some to his policies. Overwhelming opposition forced him to relinquish the Ministry of Defense in October 1962. Thereafter he devoted himself to left-wing political activity as an independent.

Kala mandalam Krishnan Nair
Nair is the first offspring of Kalamandalam. Hailing
from North Malabar he learnt the rudimentary lessons of
Kathakali under Guru Chandu Panickar at the Varanakkottu
Mana near Kannur. Vallathol brought him to
Kalamandalam in 1930 where he recieved rigorous training
in Kathakali under the titan Pattikkaamthoti Ravunni Menon.
As he grew up Krishnan Nair was carried away by the
grace and emotive acting of Thakazhi Guru
Kunjukkurup who was in Kalamandalam as a favourite
performer. Krishnan Nair left Kalamandalam in the
early forties and moved to south Kerala. He was soon
to become the most popular free-lance artiste in Kathakali.
He combined stylized and realistic acting in presenting
almost any one of the Kathakali characters. Endowed
with an expressive face, elegant appearance and a
approach to characters Krishnan Nair easily became
a mega-star in Kathakali. He was more at ease with
highly emotional characters like King Nala, Rukmaangada
and the major brahmin characters than with technically
disciplined characters such as Dhramaputra, Raavana and
Narakaasura. Krishnan Nair, who won many titles and
honours like Padmashree and Central Sangeet Natak Academy
Award, passed away at the age of 78. The latter part
of the history of Kathakali in the twentieth century has a
lot to comment on the sterling performances of Krishnan
Nair and his immense popularity.

condition endeared the author to his readers. He captured
in subtle detail the pain and anguish that marked the ebb
of feudalism in Kerala in many of his novels. A master
storyteller, M.T made his way up to be honored with the
highest literary award the nation confers on a writer, the
Jnanpith in 1995. Prior to that, he had received many
awards and accolades like both state and center Sahitya
Akademi Awards. He occupied and continues to occupy many
important and powerful positions in various literary
bodies including the presidentship of Kerala Sahitya
Akademi and the chairmanship of Tunchan Memorial Trust.
The Library of Congress has in its collection sixty-two
books, mostly by M.T and some on him. Also, some of them
are translations of his works into English.

leaders of olden days in nair cast.
many such leader who created history with
caste and they created their own foot steps in the
sand of time. Let us figure only some of them out here.
Thacholi Othenan: Great kalaripayatu expert who
lead nair fighters in various wars.
warrior from North Kerala at the end of the 16th century.
Highly stylised songs and stories of his valour and
chivalry abound. He lived some 500 years ago. He was born
in the family of ‘Manikothy’
in Thacholi near Badakara. He was a brave warrior,
merciless to enemies, but a friend of the helpless. Even
the Zamorin of Calicut respected him. He defeated
Mathiloor Gurukkal and killed him. But one of the
Gurukkal’s disciple cheated and killed Othenan. His real
name was Udayanakurup. He died at the young age of 32. He
is praised about in Vadakkanpattu.
Velu Thambi Dalava- A prominent
nair fighter an noted freedom fighter too. Velu Thampi led
what is perhaps the most courageous rebellion against the
British which started as a direct fall out of the British
Resident Macauly's humiliating interference in the affairs
of the Thiruvithamkur . Th e revolt started in 1808 . The
Kundara Proclamation of 1809 was an open call to arms and
thousands flocked to his banner. Initially, he was helped
in his cause by the Dewan of Kochi, Paliath Achan, but in
the later stages he fought a lonely campaign against the
British. He was no match for the military might of the
British Army and finally fled the state and reportedly
committed suicide in March 1809. Most of Velu Thampi's
followers were either hanged or imprisoned after the
termination of hostilities. There would not be any
insurrection on this scale for the rest of the British
presence in Kerala.

Nair custom and tradition.
Nairs have customs that are different from the rest of Kerala. The first of these is the
Marumakkathaayam system of inheritance. This system is a matrilineal system of inheritance. It is exceptional in the sense that it was one of the few traditional systems that gave women liberty, and right to property. Under this system, women enjoyed respect, prestige and power. An exception is the community of
Mannadiars of Palakkad, because they follow patrilineal system. Some historians believe that the
Marumakkathaayam system started after the Chera-Chola wars during the second Chera empire, as Nairs lost most of their men during the war.
In the Marumakkathyam system, the family lived together in a
tharavaadu which comprised of a mother, her brothers and younger sisters, and her children. The oldest brother was known as the
karanavar and was the head of the household and managed the family estate. Lineage was traced through the mother, and the children "belonged" to the mother's family. All family property was jointly owned. In the event of a partition, the shares of the children were clubbed with that of the mother.
The Marumakkathyam system is not very common in Kerala these days for many reasons. Kerala society has become much more cosmopolitan and modern. Nair men seek jobs away from their hometown and take their wives and children along with them. In this scenario, a joint-family system is not viable. However, there are still a few
tharawads that pay homage to this system. In some Nair families, the children carry the last name of their mother instead of the father, and are considered part of the mother's family, and not the father's. Nairs connect to and trace their lineage to a tharavadu - not to a member of the family. Tharavadu names are quite an important element of social reckoning - though decreasing in importance these days.
The martial art known as Kalaripayattu (Photo on
left Side) is believed by some to be created by the Nairs, and is also thought to be the oldest form of martial arts in the world. Those who hold this point of view think that all other forms of martial arts are descended from it. They reason that this is because Kerala had intense contacts with Buddhist monks, and Kung Fu, popularized by monks of the Shaoling Temple, traces its ancestry to Bodhidharma - a semi-legendary Chinese Buddhist monk who in some versions of his legend, came from Kerala, but who in the earliest known written version was said to have come from Central Asia.
