Glowing Tributes Paid to Perachan.

published on August 3, 2014

Hearing the news of Perachan’s demise, scores of Sangh activists from all over the state poured in to pay their last respects to the departed soul. Describing Perachan’s life as that of a combatant full of resplendent sacrifices, Bharatiya Vichara Kendra director P Parameswaran spoke about his “long term association with Perachan”, where he “always considered himself as a tireless warrior in the course of Dharmayudha.”

Recollecting Perachan’s favourite ‘ganageetham’, “pokuka nammal valoorikkondu adharmamokke akatteedaan”, Parameswarji offered tributes to the departed soul saying that “Perachan’s life in the early decades was a tireless crusade against the propaganda of anti- Sangh ideals.”

RSS Pranthapracharak PR Sasidharan, in his condolence message hailed him as “having an unassuming persona and being the commonest of commoners, with a unique personality, who could command the respect of any one, right from a commoner to someone at a high pedestal, in spite of having received only received primary education.”

“As a Sangh functionary, Perachan was a lofty soul who instilled perennial self confidence into the hearts of Hindus residing in Malabar, who were deprived not just the freedom of organizing Sangh activities, but also their self respect,” he said.

“Only few persons would have the privilege of being so inextricably blended with Sangh. It was the hallmark of his personality, of always having worn the ganavesham and reciting the ganageetham with ardent fervor. In fact, Perachettan’s recitals had a special place by themselves at Sangh meetings. His life was the living example of a visionary’s, who showed how obstacles and contradictory circumstances could be overcome and secure victories in all the activities that were undertaken,” he added.

“The life of Perachettan, who had set aside his life for Sangh ideology,was a source of inspiration for all those associated with Sangh,” said RSS Kshetriya Pracharak Sthanumalayan. He went ahead with an assiduous campaign to take far and wide, the ideals of Sangh to newer pastures, even during days when Sangh activities were placed under stringent scanner,” he pointed out.

Among others who paid tributes were former state organizing secretary of BJP PP Mukundan, BJP state president V Muraleedharan, S Sethu Madhavan etc.

Prachan, who began his stint as an RSS Pracharak in the early 1950s was one of the first Pracharaks of Kerala. A native of Mangaav, Kozhikode, Perachchan began his life as a social worker through a socialist organization. He later began associating himself with the RSS, into which he plunged himself completely.

After resigning from his job in Kerala Textiles, Perachan served as a full time Pracharak in places like Wayanad, Pattambi, Perumbavoor, Cherthallai, Payyanoor etc. He also served a prison term during the Emergency period, after having been arrested from the RSS Karyalayam of Nadakkavu, Kozhikode.

Perachan’ s services in the post Emergency period were mainly centered around Kozhikode. However, in the last five years, following physical ailments, he was advised rest. The end came on Friday in Madhava Kripa, the RSS Kozhikode Vibhag Karyalayam.
