Share your thoughts about your days at Mariagiri.

I still have sweet memories about Mariagiri School. When I was in 8th standard my English teacher was Vattothuparambil Achan. When he tried to make me spell ‘except’, I couldn’t. I used to end up spelling it as – ‘espect’. More than 20 times he tried and finally he got fedup.


Vattothuparambil Achan, Doyalamma, Munshi Sir, Baby Sir were the teachers and they have always been there in my memories.

I am greatly delighted to share my pleasant experience at Mariagiri School, Peermade. I was fortunate to have my early schooling at this prestigious institution during 1972-1981. It was quite enriching and pleasant. I appreciate the methods of schooling and the educational support provided by the dedicated teachers and the Management to the students, who mostly hailed from the hilly province of the state. The standards of academic practice were very different from those of the academic system around there during those years and were quite unique. The educational system of the school placed great emphasis on moulding the personality of the students and developing their confidence. This has undoubtedly played a decisive role in enabling me to pursue my higher education in science and deepening my understanding and perceptions about fundamental science and society at large. I believe that the strong foundation laid in the early education from a renowned institution like the Mariagiri has helped me to become a Professor in one of the most esteemed colleges in Kerala.


I should particularly remember, with gratitude, Late Rev. Fr. Lukose Pathiyil, the then Principal. I also express my sincere thankfulness to Rev. Fr Thomas Vattothuparambil, Sr. Lucia, Sr. Silas, Sr. Doyal, Sr. Sibia, Chandrasekharan Nair Sir, John Sir, Ancy teacher, Mariamma teacher, Mr. Jacob . . .


Thanks to my friends Lala, Boby, George, Jimmy, Pothen Thomas, Mathew Thomas, Varghese, Cyril J. Vellappally, Ajai, Sara, Mini …………
