Sri Kodyamme Vishnu Irniraya
No More
Sep 5, 1933 - Mar 11, 2015

It is with profound regret that we inform the sad demise of Shri Kodyamme Vishnu Irniraya, Advocate, Kodyamme House, Koipady, near Kumbale, Kasaragod District, on March 11, 2015. He was 82 years and was undergoing treatment at a private hospital in Mangalore for a brief period for age related illness. He has left behind his wife Smt. Savitri, son Dr. Krishna Prasad, a noted cardiothoracic surgeon at Mumbai, daughter Smt. Indira and a large number of relatives and friends.

Late Shri K Vishnu Irniraya was born on Sep 5, 1933 and had his early schooling in Kumbla and later in Navajeevana High School, Peradala. After graduation at St. Aloysius College, Mangalore, he proceeded to Chennai for studying Law at Madras Law College and later practiced as a leading lawyer at Kasaragod for nearly three decades.

It was during his stay in Chennai in the early sixties that he was attracted towards the teachings of Mahatma Gandhi. He was deeply involved in the Sarvodaya movement and later dedicated his life for the propagation of Gandhian thought and ideals. He was also closely associated with several social, cultural and religious organisations and contributed his might in the renovation and restoration of several ancient temples in and around Kasaragod district. Apart from social work, his area of interest included agriculture and promotion of Carnatic music as President of Thyagaraja Sangeetha Sabha, Kasaragod.
