Kalari ace receives Padma Shri at 93!

Republic Day began like all other mornings for Sankaranarayana Menon, the 93-year-old kalaripayattu master who has been conferred the Padma Shri for his contributions to martial arts.

As has been the routine for as long as he could remember, he woke up at 5 am, bathed in the family pond, offered prayers at the courtyard temple and stepped onto the kalari (arena) in Kerala’s Chavakkad where his students waited for him, ready for three hours of gruelling training of body and mind.

There was a brief round of applause for his achievement, announced by the Government on Tuesday night, but no excess celebration. “I am obviously glad that the Government has recognised me. But it’s not the end. I will continue teaching students as long as I am alive. It’s my duty,” he says, in a soft but clear voice.

These days, his body can’t take the rigours of demonstrating the intricate steps (“adavu”) on a daily basis. Yet, Menon says he can still perform most steps without breaking a bone or pulling a muscle. The movements are no longer muscle memory, but memory itself. “I have been practising those moves since I was seven, so it has become a part of me, like my mind.” he says.
