K. Balakrishnan is best remembered as the editor and publisher of Kaumudi weekly, which was widely popular in the southern parts of the present Kerala state. A unique feature in the weekly, 'pathradhiparodu chodikkuka' (Ask the editor) in which readers can ask the editor about anything under the sky (but not a quiz session) was widely popular. Unfortunately, no information about the weekly, which was published during 1950s and '60s, s now found in Wikipedia
