It is always remained not only our desire but also earnest effort to present, consistently one Barkurian as 'Personality of the Month'. The team short listed a dozen deserved men and women, but most of these great men / women hesitant, rather so humble, feel they hardly deserve such recognition / publicity. It become very difficult to extract primary data from these people, hence Host of this site find it difficult to keep these widely read web pages vibrant and live. To-days world crave for name and fame but we the Barkurian's shy away from any sort of propaganda for themselves!

We would like to make a point here, it is not for the sake of these outstanding people we honor them, but with a larger objective to know our own people, their special achievements and contribution to the society and thereby to be role model and inspiration to the coming generation.
