    I trust it is the same Radhakumar, Dist.Alleppey, Kerala
    His modest house is very very close to NTPC Ltd, Kayamkulam Township,Cheppad-690507(Kerala)
    There is memorial (samadhi) which forms part of a front portion of his house, a few steps away from the Vettikulangara Temple) at the above address.
    I was posted there (at NTPC) in 1999 and had seen his dead body also. Recently(in Apr-2024) I visited that place again and paid respects.
