- K M Anthru – man who loved literature, lived through it and died for it. His life was gentle, and the elements so mixed in him that Nature might stand up and say to all the world, “This was a man!”
KM Anthru is the eighth son of Kottayil Moideen Sahib and Perumbalam Kallidumkadavil Kunjomma. He was born on April 2, 1937. He started writing at his early ages. His first story was published in the year 1956. After completing his education at Kanjiramattom Government Lower Primary School, St. Ignatius High School and Maharaja’s College, he worked at Poona Defense Account Office, the Pension Pay Master’s Office at Thiruvananthapuram, Station Master at the Indian Southern Railway and an advocate of Kerala High Court and Central Administrative Tribunal.
As a litterateur, employee, organization leader and advocate he worked for the downtrodden and marginalized society. His view that education never ends reflects the importance he gives on education. By educating and empowering the downtrodden and marginalized people by providing education and making employable is the key for development.
