He had an extraordinary ability and talent for writing excellent legal essays and articles. He was the brain behind most of the articles and books published by the Academy. He joined the Academy after voluntarily resigning from his post of Joint Secretary in the Government Secretary and sacrificing his bright career prospects at the Government Secretariat. He was a senior lecturer at the Academy who had deeply touched the students, with his approach and methods. He was the strength for the timely publication of the Academy Law Review, which he also ensured maintained the high standards set for it.

His untimely demise in 1989 was the biggest loss suffered by the Academy and was a setback to the functioning of the Academy and to the timely publication of the Academy Law Review. Lectures are held to commemorate the memory of this great academician, who was a pillar of strength for the Academy. The lectures are published by the Academy.


Memorial Lectures

He served the Academy as a professor and then as Principal of the Academy. His sad and untimely demise while serving as the Principal of the Academy was an irreparable and irrecoverable loss to the institution. He joined the Academy right from its inception in 1967 and worked as a lecturer from its founding days. He was a phenomenal lecturer and master par excellence in the lecture method of teaching. Hailing from a reputed family of ayurveda practitioners, his father was a companion and associate of Sree Narayana Guru, the great legendary social reformer of India.

His lectures were unique and a masterpiece and had illustrations, explanations, and narrations which were mind captivating and fascinating. Students were always unanimous in giving the verdict that once they listen to his lecture on a topic and case laws, it stands embedded in their mind to such an extent that they will never forget and they need to read it only once again to appear for the examinations.
