The Thalayal N.S.S Karayogam (No. 503) , started its functioning on the 8th September 1931. (Malayalam Era 23.1.1107). Its glorified history will be reached a remarkable milestone on the 15th Septemeber 2015, when it will complete its 84 th anniversary. From the very beginning, our Karayogam will always stand for upholding the principles shown by our founder Bharatha Kesari Sri. Mannath Padmanabhan.
Due to the absence of a centrally located office , and due to several other reasons , the central office was shifted many times and the Karayogam office was functioned from different places of Thalayal. The year 1960 was a prominent year in the history of our Karayogam. Smt. Lekshmi Bai, W/o Sri. Sukumara Menon of Kunchuveedu donated 27 cents of land including the Malottu Sree Bhadrakali Temple and another 27 cents of land by Sri. Chellappan Pillai of Valiyaveedu, Thalayal to our Karayogam. This is indeed the strong foundation of our present Karayogam. The Karayogam renovated the temple and it became the central office thereafter.
In the year 1962 our efforts to start an educational institution turned into a great success. The Devi Vilasam Lower Primary School commenced its functioning by leading the lamp into world of knowledge and culture. In this connection , the efforts of Sri. T. Thanupillai ( Thankappan Nair) , the then President of Karayogam was ever memorable. A lot of other eminent personalities were also contributed to a great extent for achieving this noble task.
Steps of progress were also in Malottu Sree Bhadrakali Temple. (Malottu Mudippura). “Paranettu Mahotsavam “ is conducted once in 6 years. “ Nithya Pooja” started in 1989.. There are other several holy and traditional customs were observed here. In the year 1990, Mannam Memorial Residential School started by the Karayogam.
The area of operation of our Karayogam covered a vast area from Balaramapuram- Kattakada Road (Thempamuttam ) to Poovangavilakam, Thalayal . For operational easiness and conducting the activities more smoothly, our Karayogam was divided and Thempamuttam Karayogam (Thempamuttam area) started functioning from its office located at Karathala Sri Bhagavathy Temple.
For coordinating the activities more efficiently and for working convenience, our Karayogam was divided into five segments. This is really intensified our active intervention among the society. A very strong Karayogam committee under the experienced leadership of Sri. N. Hariharan, indeed an asset to our Karayogam.. For the effective scrutiny and of accounts, a seven member audit committee also formed . Further, a very strong Vanitha Samajam, an active Youth wing, and an efficient Balasamajam also functioning under the leadership of Thalayal N.S.S. Karayogam. 18 Dhanasree units were also commenced its operation recently.
