The man...The legend
"Guru Brahma Gurur Vishnu Guru Devo Maheshwaraha
Guru Saakshat Para Brahma Tasmai Sree Gurave Namaha"
Yes he deserves this truly. Prof. M K Menon, who was the Head of the Department of Physics in St Thomas College, Thrissur and who is the honoured patron of Sakthan Thampuran College Thrissur, is the last word for Physics for the students for generations.
Sri AjithBorn in 6 April 1939, Sri M K Menon had his schooling at St Joseph School, Bombay up to VII Standard. He joined in C M S School Thrissur after wards. After completing his B Sc degree in Physics from St Thomas College, Thrissur, in 1958, he pursued there as a demonstrator in Physics for one year. He scored the meritorious second rank for his M Sc Physics from U C College, Aluva under the University of Kerala in the year 1961. Kumar is born in October 14, 1964 as the son of Varanakkottu Krishnan Namboothiri and Manakulam Mallika Thampuratty. After completing his schooling in Govt.Model Boys' School in Thrissur, he joined St Thomas College for his higher studies. After his studies he found no other realms to pursue, but only to follow the career of his beloved Guru, Prof. M. K Menon. And under the loving care and blessings of his Menon Sir he started his career as a teacher.
Sri M K Menon joined in St Thomas College, Thrissur, in 1961, as a lecturer in Physics. In the year 1985, he was upgraded as the Head of the Department of Physics in the same college. During his period he had given the privilege to the pre degree students allocating the tuition facilities for Physics. He took voluntary retirement in the year 1988 and concentrated on tuitions on Maths, Physics and Chemistry which could be done only by a real academician and a dedicated teacher. He took classes for Physics Main students and the students who took Mathematics and Chemistry as their main subjects with Physics as a subsidiary subject. Prof. M K Menon joined in the Department of Physics in Sakthan Thampuran College in the year 2005 and under his patronage the institution is blooming on and on proudly.
Honours are never to be alien to this eminent personality. The Sight Organization Thrissur had awarded him the title 'Guru Sreshta' in the year 2006. The Citizens' Forum Thrissur honoured him on the celebrated function 'Aadaraneeyam' conducted on behalf of 150th anniversary of first independent struggle on his invaluable contributions on the field of teaching. His own dais St Thomas College honoured him and presented a memento on the prestigious function of celebrating its 90th anniversary.
Home is not where you live, but where they understand you. Prof. Menon's better half, Smt.C.Vimala Menon, the daughter of Korapath Kochukrishna Menon, is not a shadow but a great shade to Menon Sir. His elder son, Mr.C.Balachandran (late) was a versatile personality, who was working in Doha as a Mechanical Engineer .The Younger one, Dr. Ravindran FRCS is working as General Surgeon in London. Dr. Preethy Menon, his daughter occupies in the reputed position of Professor in the University of Mexico.
Abraham Lincoln says that a good student is moulded by a good teacher, but we can also say that a good teacher is known by good students. Menon Sir is always rich on this . His students are there on almost all over the world, on all walks of life, and on all top most positions. But his humbleness is quite surprising. His deep insight into the heart of students, his ability to impart positive energy into the onlookers' heart and his compassionate look are quite enchanting and praise worthy. He is always energetic and we feel that divine fire sparkling when we are with him. No one would feel that he or she is inferior. No one would feel that he or she is all alone, when Menon Sir is there. He is the father, friend, or grandfather to every body around him. In science, fact "can only mean" confirmed to such a degree that it would be perverse to withhold provisional assent.' It is supposed that apples might start to rise tomorrow, but the possibility does not merit equal time in physics classrooms.
