Dr Mathew Zachariah passed away a little over a year ago as a result of kidney failure. He left BCS at the end of 1959.
He was a courageous man to write his biography and like all lives this account is an interesting one. I am taking the liberty of forwarding a few pages extracted from the book that would make relevant – and interesting – reading.
Dr Zachariah after leaving BCS, built a successful career in the academic world. The calibre and worth of some of these teachers was huge and we were fortunate to be taught by intelligent minds whose age difference seemed so much more than it really was.
Dr Zachariah had commissioned the translation of this biography into Malayalam, his mother tongue. Pictures of him with some of us at BCS accompany this mail for your information. The one from 1957 with some of us from the Remove Dormitory features some fine specimens.
