Our founder, Sri. R. Shankar, the third Chief Minister of Kerala, was a towering figure in Kerala Politics, and an eminent educationist, able administrator and a great social reformer. Sri. Sankar was born on April 30, 1909 as the fifth son of Shri Raman and Smt. Kunchali Ammain the village of Kuzhikkalidavakaat Kottarakkara. He was an ideal teacher, who loved teaching and was much admired for his oratory skills. He served the SNDP Yogam as its General Secretary and President and started many educational institutions in the State. His callto contribute “one fist rice” generated a flood of contributions from all, enabling the formation of the SN Trust, which led to the establishment of many Sree Narayana educational institutions all over the State.
