Comments: The Oorayil family has it's roots in the 9th century West Asian migration to Kollam, Kerala , as against the observation in this website and the book 'George Joseph - the life and times of a Kerala Christian Nationalist'
For more details on the history of Oorayil family refer the Family history book of Kallada Thulassery manapurathu or search the thulasserymanapurathu website on google.
I am Alex Thomas who is residing in the Oorayil ancestral property from where C.I Joseph shifted to the aquired property in Chengannur and established the OorayilPuthenpurayil branch .

Comments: During the three years that I spent at ~AVHS, Mr. A. G. Joseph’s teaching method and live participation made me realise the importance of reading good literature.
It was because of his beneficial influence that I have become an avid reader of quality literature that has enriched my life beyond expectation.
I owe him a debt of gratitude and remember him every time I pick up a book. He was a tower of strength to all his students.

Comments: This site is truly wonderful. I hope the yet to be completed sections would also be completed soon. The B&W photos truly brought to life another age. Incidentally I worked in a newspaper which was once edited by Pothan Joseph as its founde editor (Deccan Herald of Bangalore). Never thought that members of this website would be related tohim.
