The ancestral house of Swadeshabhimani Ramakrishna Pillai, which was in a dilapidated state, has found an unexpected well-wisher.

Actor Suresh Gopi has come out offering support to take over the house and protect the same.

On Tuesday, Suresh Gopi visited the house of Swadeshabhimani Ramakrishna Pillai near Neyyattinkara, after he came to know about the issue through media. The house got damaged in the recent spell of rain. Later, speaking to Express, Suresh Gopi said he’s ready to support any initiative to protect the historical monument if the State Government or the Department of Culture comes forward for the same.

He expressed his willingness to protect the birth place of Swadeshabhimani Ramakrishna Pillai, one of the most fearless journalists of modern Kerala.

He also expressed a wish that the place can be brought under the Press Club.

“If this place comes under the Press club, then it would prove beneficial to the upcoming generation of scribes,” the actor said.

The house which is situated in 30 cents of land in Neyyattinkara is now under the ownership of five persons who are the relatives of Swadeshabhimani.

The old house made with mud and roofed with coconut leaves, got completely damaged in the recent rain.

According to reports, the State Government had earmarked some funds for protecting the house in the last budget.

However, apart from promises nothing happened.
