Dr K Madan Mohan

For the record, Dr Madan Mohan was former Professor of Pediatric Surgery, former Medical College Principal and former Director of the School of Medical Education, MG university. Or as media highlighted ,the legendary captain of Kerala cricket team under whom the state recorded its first ever victory in the Ranji trophy. But to anyone who came into contact with him he came out as much more than that.

My association with Madanmohan Sir probably began from the moment I was born. His mother, Parvathy Amma Teacher was the Professor of Chemistry in women's College, Tvpm and mentor to my mother who was a junior colleague in the dept. My uncles played cricket with him at various levels ; the youngest one a member of the state team which he captained. He was too senior for me to interact in my school days. My real association with him began at a peripheral meet of ASI at Kanjirappally in 1986 where I met him and introduced myself. The warmth of the hug he gave me still lingers !
He had that warmth for me always.
( Incidentally I got almost the same reaction from his brother the other day !)

Later I also joined Pediatric Surgery. He was my examiner for MCh.It was the first time he took up the job and I'd like to believe that he accepted it because he knew I was appearing !( I never asked him though)

When the Tvpm Dept of Pediatric Surgery started Onam Celebrations inviting all the former faculty, he made it a point to come and be the livewire of the event. The Indian Association of Pediatric Surgeons Kerala  chapter got a revival with a conference he organised at Kottayam. He was active in KGMCTA, Alumni, Former Faculties Forum, Kerala Cricket Association and made significant contributions to all.

During the last state conference of IAPS where he was felicitated as a senior member, he described himself as " a former Pediatric Surgeon who now has no contact with Pediatric Surgery but only with Pediatric Surgeons". Now when another state conference is round the corner he'll be sorely missed. I was in regular contact with him and for me it was the second generation of relationship and some great memories to cherish. 

Adieu Sir .....
