Over past few years this family had grown rapidly with lots of eminent persons. In this diversified world of different life styles, and varied national aspirations, many family members are now in developed countries of America, England, Australia, etc. and few are in the process of bringing up a new generation of individuals who are unaware of their own roots and even their mother tongue.


Years ago Christianity was brought to the land of the Hindus, known as India at that time. A few started to follow the path of Jesus Christ and had spread all over the world. Their forefathers were among them. Almost 500 years back, 7 forefathers came from Kuravilangad and settled in Eraviperoor. One each from them had settled in Niranam and Ayiroor and the rest settled permanently in Eraviperoor. The son of one of these forefathers decided to shift to Puthupalli. Thus the families Kodumthara, Altharackal, Kurunthodathil, Edackamannil Parambil, Thevarkattil, Kodippara, Thazhathekuttu and Plavelipparambil started living in Eraviperoor and Kumbanad. Besides these families, Niranam, Ayiroor, Meprathu and Puthuppalli have also spread reasonably from the past. Reunions are conducted for these families too. From there many of the members have spread their settlements along with their rising prosperity.

Why 'Family Reunions'?

By the beginning of 1900, when one of the members became a highly educated scholar, most of the family members decided to take teaching as their profession in big institutions. Many others became business men all over the Globe. Thus decides to conduct ‘Family Reunions' every year in order to keep a good relationship with each other and let the new generations know about the facts and history of their family. During the Second World War (1938-45), ‘Family Reunions' were not held due to many reasons. But by 1980, due to the political and social changes that had happened in our country made all the families to grow up steadily. Along with this rapid progress, Kodumthara family started to gather all their members. As a result of some dedicated and talented members, the family is now able to reunite not only in Eraviperoor but also in Thalavadi, Niranam, Meprathu and Ayiroor. Once in every 5 years, reunion of families Ayiroor and Niranam are conducted in Eraviperoor.

    For past few decades, the Christian ethics and values that forefathers established is gradually fading off. Paul teaches about the essential aspects for a Christian family life. The Ephesians Chapter 5 deals with the scriptural bedrock of the christian faith and deals with the practical suggestion for daily living if we honestly adopt Christ's perspectives in our culture. The Apostle then applies this to the church and calling the believers to realize that they are the members of the body of Christ and to love each other by living in the spirit of Christ. Families, parents and children were to integrate these basic principles. Be a good model to the community and nation and be a good testimony of God's mercy, grace, power and true Christianity.
