Dear friend

In the early 70s, there was one Mr C A SUBRAMANIAN, the initial C for our own CHITTUR..who served ina Delhi basedGovt.Undertaking with ITS REGNL OFICE @the then Madras..I happened to join the same organisation, early 72 when he had just retired frm service...I vaguely recollect having attended a wedding/Reception,in his family along with my colleagues, around that time..Unfortunately for me, I had no opprtunity of meeting him, at all , therafter. .I am not sure whether he is related to the other RENOWNED CcHITTURIANS mentioned in one of the Comments....Thnx. Warm rgds to all..

Dear Col. Mohan; In response to your query this is all that I know. Shri Vaidyalingam was the eldest son of Justice Sir C V Ananthakrishnan ; finished his high school in chittur got his higher education in madras i believe at presidency college ; practiced law there before becoming a judje of the madras high court and subsequently the supreme court . He retired from the supreme court and lived in delhi before his death. His children a son and daughter also are lawyers in the supreme court. Mr C A Ramakrishnan was the third son of Justice Sir C.V. Ananthakrishnan;did his schooling in chittur, his college education in madras and in the UK. He was an ICS officer who became the chief secretary of the gov. of tamilnad. He had one daughter who is deceased who lived in madras. I do not have any pictures of these folks and will update the info once i talk to my mother who is 90 now .Trust this helps. Sincerely; Ananthakrishnan

A mail received from Dr A .Sreekumar Menon

Dear Col  Mohan,

I need not repeat what many others would have said that you have made a unique contribution in developing  and maintaining this  informative Web Site .  It helps Chitturians to go down their memory lane and, reconnect themselves after several years of losing their contacts for sharing their experiences for emotional welbeing , apart from remembering the great  personalities of the past and present, which  should be source of inspiration for the coming generation.The site has also a blog  in which  informative and useful Articles by reputed writers appear . I wish you all the success in your philanthropic effort .

Dr.A.Sreekumar Menon

Dear Chitturians,

Thanks to the sincere efforts of Col. Mohan for conceiving and maintaining such a forum for all of us to interact.

I am from the Puthukkulangara family. Though I have visited Chittur a few times, I have never lived there. My father P. Balakrishna Menon is no more. Adv. P. Jayapala Menon, based in Chittur, is my Elayachan.

I will be a regular visitor of this site, and looking forward to knowing more and more Chitturians in the future.

Best regards

My Dear Chitturian Friends,

This site indeed given me a great pleasure to trace and communicate with many friends of of Chittur who were missed a long back after my college days.

 

First of all I would like to thank Col. Mohanji, who has taken the effort and developed this site, for the interest of Chitturians.

Let me introduce myself first. I am Mohandas, resided to the opposite to AEO’ office Chittur, with my cousin Sampath Kumar, who was an active SFI worker in Chittur College in the 70s. It may be recalled to everyone that I was in “Hippie” hair style when my days starts in Chittur ( 1974-1980 )

I was graduated in Philosphy and was College Union Chairman in the year of 1979-80.

We, Madhava Prasad, ( Madhu ) Ambat Vinod, Yezhuvath Reghu ( Manasi Teacher’s second son and popularly known as “Koda” ) Ravindran ( known as Kunjan Ravi ) Narayanan Kutty ( Kunhi ) Vijayan use to meet every evening after our college hours in Anikkodu Mokku ( Near petrol Pump ) Our hero “ Kodoth Kumaran” ( Late ) will arrive there by around 8 pm in a good mood, with a bunch of daily local news, which gives us evening nourishment. Great to remember.

The shocking news which hurted me a lot on 20th, was the untimely death of Y. Shankunny, my friend Reghu’s elder brother. I admired him as a brother of mine. During my college days, Yezhuvath Bunglow, where Shankunny was, was my second home. Let we pray to the God to rest his soul in peace.

I humbly request to the members of this site to upload their photographs, as we are re uniting after a long gap of years.

 

I am working in Mumbai for the past 18 years in an Export House. Settled with family, in Mulund, Mumbai. Blessed with 2 Kids.

 

Regards to my dear friends.
