The Thunchan Smaraka Samithi is a cultural organization which was established in 1967 in commemoration of the universally renowned poet Thunchathu Ramanujan Ezhuthachan, the father of Malayalam language and literature. The Trust is committed to encourage culture, literature and tradition. The trust has an educational and cultural wing. Efforts are being made to help the raising of the intellectual and analytical skills of the young generation and equipping them to take on challenging as outside. The fully equipped faculty has taken this up as their primary goal. The system we have developed and are following in TSEMHS ensures that the students gain not just depth and breadth in their chosen area, but a holistic set of skills that will equip them to face the real world.
At every stage, there will be opportunities to expand their boundaries, platforms for responsibilities. Apart from its principal functions in the realm of education, the Samithi organizes various social and cultural events round the year throughout the region. Besides the English Medium High School the Samithi runs Higher Secondary Courses, a Pre-Primary Teacher Training Institute, two Teachers Training Institutes, a Health Inspector Training College, a Day Care Centre and a Printing Technology Institute in a traditionally built beautiful campus in the heart of the city of Thiruvananthapuram. The second campus is located in a salubrious environment at Marayamuttom, Neyyattinkara, which is home to the Pharmacy College imparting professional courses in Pharmacy (B.Pharm, D. Pharm) and Two Teacher Training Institutes.
In all its activities the Samithi strives to realize Thunchathu Ezhuthachan's dream of dissemination of enlightment, wisdom and ethical values. The cultural wing is entrusted with organizing the Thunchan Festival round the year and to conduct programmes like poets meet, seminars, symposiums and to arrange performances of traditional art forms of Kerala. On the Vijayadasami day the Trust organizes "Vidyarambham" the initiation of tinytots to the world of learning, wherein, thousands of children between three and five years of age are led by acharyas to the world of letters, music and the arts, irrespective of their individual religions affiliation. The Samithi aims to bring about resurgence in the usage of our wonderful mother tongue Malayalam. To this end the Samithi has started 'Mathrubhasha Padanakendras' all over Kerala. The Samithi also provide research facilities to students and scholars on art, culture and literature. Forty years of selfless & distinguished service to the society has earned the Samithi immense goodwill and social standing.
