Editorial Comments[edit]

Some details of his life story read like a CV or diary. I have rewritten them to read as cogent sentences to fit in with the bulk of the prose and make it easier on the (especially English) reader's eye.

The article deserves closer inspection as there are apparent repetitions. The paragraphs on his contribution to Malayalam literature and Kerala life (particularly following the mention of his death) ought to be examined for any scope for blending and condensing the information.

I have re-expressed the repetitive "B.Bailey" simply as Bailey, common Wikipedia usage.

English readers may be baffled at the expression "cent per cent" relating to the literacy of his adopted town. Does that mean 100 per cent, ie total literacy?Cloptonson (talk) 20:29, 16 June 2014 (UTC)
