  6. Velutheri Kesavan Vaidyar - He for the first time in Kerala translated the Alankara and the grammer in simple Malayalam verses for which he was given a royal award (a gold bracelet) by the maharaja Visakham Tirunal , when many caste-Hindus were frowning at his audacity to tread in the sphere preserved for the priestly class. [1]
  7. Perunnelli Krishnan Vaidyar - In November 1892 in Kottayam , an all-Kerala poets convention was held to determine the relative merit of the Malayalam poets , Perun-nelli could not lift the first price because in a poets conclave consisting of literary men mainly belonging to the obstinate conservative clan of the caste -Hindus, caste prejudice aganist him was heavier than his eligibility. Knowing well the injustice done to Krishnan Vaidyan , the elder Samoothiri of Calicut presented him with a copy of the book written by him in consolatory tone.[2]
  8. Thottathil Kesavan Vaidyan - Disciple of Perunnelli .(It would not be out of place to mention that it had been the practice of a caste zealot Kottarathil Sankunni , not a Brahmin but a Thiyattunni{temple worker} to reject on frivolous grounds , poems of Ezhava poets sent for publication to the Bhashaposhini , a Christian edited periodical in his capacity as the literary member of its editorial board.He was notorious for his hostility to the Ezhava poets whom he kept disciminated as Ezhavas to exclude from literary platforms. He returned a poem written by Thottathil Kesavan Vaidyan alleging that there was one error of euphonic combination which in fact was not existing.Perun-nelli exposed his mendacious excuse for the rejection which was a stunning experience for Sankunni who thereafter confined his animosity aganist the Ezhava literary men within his own chamber.)[3]

good venture; please update regularly


Vinod aroor

MGR (Maruthur gopalan ramachandra menon) is a nair. His father is melekath gopala menon and mother is maruthur satyabhama, both hails from nair families of palakkad district. Nairs are matrilinial and hence MGR has his mothers family name.

Please go through this para of MGR's biography.
"Melakkath Gopala Menon had been excommunicated from Keralite society ( bhrasht ) during a Smarthavicharam in 1903, regarding an illicit relationship with a widowed Brahmin woman; and hence he left his family, and married Maruthur Satybhama who was from a Ezhava caste, and migrated to Ceylon."
Hope you are updated.

Atlas Ramachandran and Kavya Madhavan

You have done a wonderful job.But, it seems that the above list is incomplete. There are many prominent figures are to be included in the list such as Sunil Kumar.V.S. (CPI MLA), Adv. Rajan Babu (Ex. MLA), Adv. Shine (PSC Member), Thilothaman (Cherthala MLA), C.B. Chandra Babu (CPM Alappuzha District Secretary) etc. I would like to know the caste of our young politicians such as Palghat MP Mr.Rajesh.M.B.

Please make an option to link the content to facebook

I have strong doubt that Pannyan Raveendran is from ezhava community. He is reported to have been from Salyar community. Author may kindly verify this.

Moreover the Author may include U.Neelakantan Ex.MLA ( Attingal constituency) hailing from Kadakkavoor, Tvpm Dist in the list of Famous freedom fighter who was awarded with The THAMRA PATHRA by the India Govt. He was a relative and guru of R. Prakasam , Freedom fighter from Chirayinkil Taluk.

leftout K . Anirudhan CPIM father of A Sampath MP

Baiju S Dhar is right now...Associate Professor,Cheif Pediatric Cardiac Surgeon · Trivandrum, India

Alot of people who went abroad who were personally blessed by Guru made very prominent post in other countries and helped uplift others life and education back home in Kerala was not mentioned.They also fought against the Japanese and made heroes.One such person among many is Mr.Thittayil Kumaran Govind who hails from Anjengo who retired as Chief Surveyor of Malaysia.

I think Atlas Ramachandran is not Ezhava....also Kavya Madhavan is from Chaaliyaar Not Ezhava

Please include the name of Dr.Thayavalapil Kyprat Hemanth,in the list of eminent doctors, who is my elder brother and is a Radiation Oncologist who worked as a Consultant at Auckland Hospital, Auckland, New Zealand. Currently, he is working as a Consultant in Australia.He was a DMRT,MD from Madras Medical College, Chennai and was conferred the MRANZ ( Member of Radiation Oncologists of Australia and New Zealand ) in the year 2012.

വളരെ ആശ്ചര്യവും അത്ഭുതവും .
ഇതില്‍ വളരെ വേണ്ടപ്പെട്ട ഒരാളെ വിട്ടുപോയി .
ലോകത്തില്‍ ഇന്നുവരെ ഒരാള്‍ മാത്രമേ ലോകര്‍ക്ക് ഉര്‍ജ്ജം പകര്‍ന്ന മഹാത്മന്‍ ശ്രീ നാരായണ ഗുരുവിന്‍റെ നാമത്തില്‍ സത്യപ്രതിഞ്ജ ചെയ്തിട്ടുള്ളൂ .
അത് കൊടുങ്ങല്ലൂര്‍ MLA ആയിരുന്ന ശ്രീ ഉമേഷ്‌ ചള്ളിയില്‍ ആണ് .
അദ്ധേഹത്തെ ഉടനെ ഈ സംരംഭത്തില്‍ ഉള്‍പ്പെടുത്തുക എങ്കിലേ ഇത് നൂറു ശതമാനവും ഉള്‍ക്കൊന്ടെന്നു വായനക്കാര്‍ക്ക്‌ തോന്നുകയുള്ളൂ . ഇത് വിജയിക്കട്ടെ . നമസ്കാരം
