Cherukad Memorial Trust

Established at Thiruvananthapuram in 1978, the Cherukad Memorial Trust later shifted to Perinthalmanna in Malappuram. A memorial trust developed to commemorate the great novelist, dramatist and short-story writer, Govinda Pisharay, who is better known as Cherukad. The trust observes his death anniversary on October 29, as Cherukad day and also gives away an annual literary award (Cherukad Puraskaram) in his name for outstanding works either in drama, novel, short story or children’s literature.
