Ulloor S. Parameswara Iyer, best known for his classical style of poetry in the 20th century, is one of the greatest contributors to Malayalam literature. Ulloor, Mahakavi Kumaran Asan and Vallathol Narayana Menon are the triumvirate poets often referred to as the pillars of modern Malayalam poetry.
Though he used scholarly language while writing, Ulloor’s poems have been widely accepted because of the way they resonate with the common man. In his works, Ulloor gives importance to both classical literature and Indian culture. His poems comprise Sanskrit words, stories from mythology, and unusual satire. His writings also reflect a blend of emotion and inquisition.
On this day, which marks the 67th year of his remembrance, it is important to acknowledge Ulloor and his immortal works.
