    We called him Kurur as Arun shankar was too long for school buddies to quickly call out. In addition to being batchmates, classmates and schoolmates, we were also statemates. Two guys from Kerala who used to exchange notes on Kerala food, the only other guy in class who used to bring iddlies in his lunch box resulting in both our lunch boxes being ransacked well before lunch time.

    He was talented. We also acted in a school play. He also played the sitar if I remember this right. Bu that was not what he was made for. So he made it straight to the NDA when many others went their own ways. Tough guy who probably was rearing to get into the battle right away.

    Today 20th July 2018 is his 56th birthday. I did not get to meet him after we left school, for he made the supreme sacrifice for the motherland well before we the rest could even settle down in our lives.

    We salute you and your supreme sacrifice for us. We live in peace because of you and your likes. Be happy wherever you are Kurur and lets catch up again.

    Jai Hind

    I remember him. We used to hang around in Delhi when he used to come on vacation from NDA, if we are talking about the same person. His parents used to stay in R K Puram. Salute to him, he was too young and brave!!

    Arun sir was brother in-law of my close friend TK Narayanan who lives in Indore MP.
    I have relationship with TKN for over 2 decades and we are like family but neither TKN nor Bhaibhi Vinita Kurur Narayanan revealed about CAPTAIN Karur, the father of Capt.Kurur, Shri Vasudevan Kurur sir passed away on 16.09.2020 at INDORE and vide an information message from TKN we got to know that UNCLE was father of Capt. Arun who sacrificed his life for our mother land.
    I appreciate and salute the way both TKN and Bhabhi cared for uncle. I had privilege to attend funeral of Vasudevan sir and I am feeling so lucky.
    Jai hind.
