A K Antony
Arackaparambil Kurian Antony (1941-) the present Chief minister of
Kerala is political idealism personified.
Born as the son of Arackaparambil Kurian Pillai and Aleyamma at
Cherthala in Alappuzha he came to the public platform leading the
student's movements in his school days. Antony is one among the
rarest leaders who is recognised and respected by all political
parties and the people in all walks of life.
Antony is the epitome of unpolluted politics. He has no fascination
for titles, no haughtiness of power. He proved himself that he as no
attraction towards the chair of power.
E K Nayaranar
KRISHNAN NAYANAR was the last of the generation of political leaders
in Kerala, feudal in origin and radical in politics, who had
committed themselves to the lot of the ordinary and downtrodden
people and earned their uninhibited respect and affection. He was
born into wealth and privilege in British-ruled Malabar (north
Kerala), at a time when the Congress was considered by the
authorities as a recruiting ground for subversives, and communist
ideas were sprouting in the country. His father Govindan Nambiar,
however, believed in the feudal way of life and would often fly into
a rage when the young Nayanar began to frequently don the Gandhi cap
as a student volunteer enticed into the national movement by his
close relatives, most prominently, uncle and the late communist
leader K.P.R. Gopalan.
The design of the national flag was adopted by the Constituent
Assembly of India on 22 July 1947.
Vande Mataram! Vande Mataram!
Sujalam, suphalam, malayaja shitalam, Shasyashyamalam, Mataram!
Shubhrajyothsna pulakitayaminim, Phullakusumita drumadala shobhinim,
Suhasinim sumadhura bhashinim,
Sukhadam varadam, Mataram!
Translation of Indian National Song
I bow to thee, Mother,
cool with the winds of the south,
dark with the crops of the harvests, The Mother!
Her nights rejoicing in the glory of the moonlight, her lands
clothed beautifully with her trees in flowering bloom, sweet of
laughter, sweet of speech,
The Mother, giver of boons, giver of bliss
