    I still fondly remember staying with him and Leseliyedathi in New Delhi during my IMA training days. Spent midterm break with them. Later used to visit them in Mumbai whenever I went to Mumbai. Very affectionate couple.

    I heard of KG from his famous uncle when I met him on my first visit to Wadakanchery. In 1984, Jalaja & I had the pleasure of at last meeting KG & Leslie and their lovely family. The loving couple were already retired and in their 60s. They showed so much of love and care. They attended to us as KG did to his vegetables in his green house! We left their home energised ourselves and feeling that we had known them for a very long time. Both KG & Leslie had so much to look forward to.

    Our children, Priya, Vidhya & Mridhula and my in laws ( Thankamani as fondly called by KG and Karunan Menon ) all had the pleasure of meeting KG many times in Melbourne and Singapore. We still have fond memories of each meeting and the exciting trip to Tasmania.
    KG’s passing will be an irreplaceable loss to Leslie and their beautiful children and grandchildren and great grandchildren.
    Our hearts go out to all of them. Our heartfelt condolences.
    We would forever cherish the wonderful memories of our KG and what a wonderful soul he was. He definitely left an indelible mark on many whose hearts he touched as a warmly loving person, always cheerful., with so much of energy and so much of enthusiasm for life and whatever he did.
    Real pity that we have not met him recently.
    May God Bless His Soul.
    Nirmalan & Jalaja, Singapore.

    I remember him coming all the way from Australia along with Valliamma to attend my sister Geetha’s wedding in 1986! I have heard of his fondness for our father who was cheriya (small or young) Unni for him! We are all with Valliachan’s family at this hour and pray for his departed soul 🙏
