Vailoppilli Sreedhara Menon was a dedicated teacher at Kerala and equally renowned poet. Vailoppilli‘s poem “Mambazham” touched human hearts in depth.

Mambazham in Malayalam language translates to “ripe mango”. The poet depicts memories of an unfortunate mother who just lost her child. “Mambazham” begins with a mother weeping when she notices a ripe mango fruit falling from the tree in her courtyard. She regretfully remembers an incident, when she scolded her child for plucking the mango flowers. She warned him that, if he plucked the flowers it would never yield fruits. The child felt disheartened and sad. He threw away the mango flowers, which he plucked from the tree and arrogantly declared that he would never go near the tree again, even for picking the mangoes. The poet reminds us that children are like GOD and their words could come true.

Vyloppilli Sreedhara Menon was a renowned Indian poet of Kerala. He was born on 11 May 1911 in Kaloor in the Ernakulam district. After taking his bachelors degree in science he took B.T. and joined as teacher in government service in 1931.
He started writing under the pen name 'Sree' and his very first collection 'Kannikkoythu' (Maiden Harvest), which came out in 1947, attracted the attention of critics by its innovative style free from the clutches of the Romantic tradition. He was associated with Samastha Kerala Sahithya Parishath the biggest forum for Malayalam writers at that time, for more than 10 years. He represented Kerala in the national poets' meetings held at Delhi (1951 and 1969) and Bangalore (1965). In 1970 he toured the Soviet union. He was the first President of Purogamana Kala Sahitya Sangham, a forum of progressive writers led by leftist intellectuals and artists.
He is considered by literary historians as one of the major voices in Malayalam poetry who marked the transition from the Romantic to the modern era. A scientific insight into the historical roots of social evolution and a deeper understanding of the psychological undercurrents of the human mind characterise his poetry. His mastery of the medium is evident in all his poems both lyrical and narrative.
Many critics consider the long poem Kudiyozhikkal (Eviction of the tenant) as his magnum opus. In the prefatory lines to the poem the poet says: 'Punchiri! Ha, Kuleenamam kallam. Nenchu keeri njan nerinekkattaam' (The smile! Oh, It's but a noble lie. Let me tear open my chest and show you the truth). The poem is a ruthless self-examination of a middle class land owner who realizes that the future belongs not to himself but to his poor tenant whom he despises at heart.
He died on December 22, 1985 and his body was cremated on the banks of river Bharathappuzha (also called 'Nila'), as he had wished.
