I was born in 1954. According to Kerala’s own calendar, it was during the dawn twilight on a Monday, under the star ‘Uthrattathi’, in the month of Dhanu, that I saw a light.
My mother is Smt. Lalitha Devi and my father is Shri. Shiva Shankara Pillai. I am their only son and have two sisters, the elder sister is Prema Kumari and younger sister is Sushama Kumari.
My father’s native place is Aluva and mother’s Ambalappuzha in Alappuzha (Alleppey) district.
Varada became my life mate on 12 may 1982. Then came our son Akhil Vinayak and daughter Bhavana. They are our dreams and expectations. My heaven is my home, now my family resides in Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum)
