    Hello Everyone
    I had the pleasure of reading Major Jose’s blog”Remembering Pcn Sir” . As one said, reams of anecdotes will not suffice if one were to describe him. Being his nephew, i feel very lucky and blessed to have his guidance throughout.

    Best Wishes
    Dr Govind Nair

    • Prince Jose says:

      Cant agree with you more Doctor.
      The closest that I’ve come across that captures what Sir was, actually cascades down from his own words defining a teacher’s duty.

      “A teacher’s bounden duty is to burn himself out like a candle while attempting to provide light for all those who come to him…”

      You were blessed in a special way to have enjoyed a close proximity to that radiant glow!

    Indeed very impressed by the initiative by the doctors in North Kerala. In addition to our chapter meet the OBA should involve ourselves in social projects which will be beneficial to the society. Great initiative by the doctors and Ramesh Babu.

    I am the wife of Lt Col K V Thomas who was killed in the copter crash near Ranchi on 19 October 2011. I was deeply touched when I saw the tribute you have put on the page for him.
    I am also grateful for the fond and deeply moving note In Memoriam of Lt Col KV Thomas, by M Balachandran ( 697/1976 ).

    He always wanted me to come and see his old school and had promised to take me there as he held his Alma Mater in high esteem. I will have to make the visit alone now.

    With regards
    Annie Thanjan Thomas.

  16. Hi Prince/Biju……..why have you stopped writing?

    • Hi Satchi,
      Blame it on the Holidays 🙂 Prince is a bit ‘tied-up’ but it wouldn’t be an impediment to his ramblings, I’m sure :)..Biju

    • Hi Arun,
      Thank you for those kind words. The Kazhak Chronicles is, as wesay, a work in progress as more of the boys keep pitching in with their fondest memories. Glad you loved what you saw. Consider yourself welcome anytime.

  20. hi!!! congrats n keep it up……reading through the write ups takes me back to the school compound n school days ….the various routes taken to kazhakootam, various mango n coconut trees climbed, various “kappa”s stolen, the number of rounds run around the dorm as punishment,…..list is endless…thanx a lot for all this

    • Hi Rajesh,
      The present Kazhakootam is not even a pale ghost of its former self, its the Mall-version! I guess the memories of the beef-Chilly Fry from Shyamala bakery would linger as long as we are around. Thank you for your kind words on the site. Consider this your open invitation.
      Warm regards,
      The K-90 Admin Team

  21. HI there. Excellent work !!!! Sent me traipzing back thru the memories. Especially since the current crop crop of memories and photos are very different from those of our times.

    luv
    Sabu/1934/89

    • Hi Sabu,
      You just laid out out right there – “the current crop crop of memories and photos are very different from those of our times.” But I guess, each batch views the life at SSKZM from a different perspective. We might have been plain lucky to be the of the kind that had less of technology and more of real bonds. Thank you for taking your time out to leave your impressions..It is still a work in progress. Needless to say, you are welcome anytime.
      Regards,
      The K-90 Admin Team

  22. Dear Mighty Kazhaks,

    Woww…what a wonderful place to be..am 12 yrs down to you all…this shows the unity of Kazhaks,the spirit of Kazhaks…

    This is motivating. Appreciate the whole batch.

    Cyril.

    • Hi Cyril,
      Glad to know that you love the place. Regardless of the fact that we are separated by a decade, the spirit still remains the same. Hope to see more of you around, sharing and reliving the lfie at Kazhak.

    • Thanks Rajesh, for your inspiring words 🙂 The effort has been, more than getting the brotherhood online, to be a place to share the wonder years, everything good and bad that have made us what we are, the good, bad and the hilariously funny ones included. Have a great day…Biju

  25. I completely agree with Sanjeev…..Congrats and thank you Biju and all who contributed to the creation of Kazhaks90….Chronicles written by Prince and photographs of our wonder years and others are simply amazing,….great work….thanks once again

    • Hi Kapil,

      Its surprising that 13 years junior could warrant such a form of address.
      ( Isn’t Pops an informal term for Father?)
      Glad that the pages and memoirs here could evoke a sense of belonging and nostalgia about your years at SSKZM.
      The themes, memory bites and bookmarks discussed here are all about aspects of Kazhak that have been an integral part of our Wonder Years at Kazhak.
      Drop us a line in case you feel us Pops could be of any assistance,
