In the State of Cochin, at the time of Maharaja rule, one of the rajahs had forbidden any meeting of the untouchables, on “his land”. The waters were mentioned, so, a member of Pulaya Community in Mulavukad island (aka Bolghatty) assembled a flotilla of rafts in the back waters around Bolghatty and convened a meeting. The hero here was Kallachamuri Krishnaadi Asan. The first ever graduate from Pulaya community was his grand niece Dakshayani (she was an MP I guess). Dakshayani’s brother, K K Madhavan (master ) was a lawyer, MP and editor. When Madhavan Master was admitted in the Sudheendra Hospital at Chittoor Road, Ernakulam, KR was on an official visit to Kerala. Mr. Narayanan, then President of India, indeed paid a visit to the hospital. Guess they were friends.
Like most of the sons of Bolghatty, KK Madhavan had moved to the mainland Ernakulam, probably lived somewhere in Kaloor. In the Elamakkara area there is a lane named after "KK Madhavan Master""
Dakshayani's children were educated in Delhi. One is/was in the airforce, and another joined the Indian administrave service (IAS).
