Future plans to add more member services.
Hold Annual General Body meetings
Hold birthdays and death anniversaries of prominant forefathers of the Parivar on sponsorship.

The Parivar is an opening for contacts by the members with each other for any or all reasons, but mainly to keep in touch with their cousins.This club can be used for other activities including sports events, theatre events, dance programs, dinners, etc.

The members can use this club to contact other members and avail of the pleasure of knowing their cousins.The club will maintain a directory of the members with their postal addresses and telephone numbers which can be used by the other members to contact them and meet them.

What do you see in this website?

This is a website of the extended family of a man who lived in the 20th Century in Mangalore. His name was Gopalakrishna, aka Gopal. He was born in Adyar village now within the Mangalore City Corporation. In short this extended family consists of stories of the ancestors and descendents of Adyar Gopal. I am a son of Adyar Gopal.

Adyar Gopalakrishna Shenoy had three sisters and two brothers.  His grandfather and father, both died in the small-pox epidemic that devastated Adyar village in 1909. Apart from the descendants of Gopalakrishna and his brothers and sisters, there are no other survivors in the Adyar family of Adyar village.


Adyar Gopal Parivar has members who are as old as 70 and even 80 years but this club is just born on the 23rd September 2007 by being inaugurated by one of the active members, viz. Sri Manchakal Mohandas Kudva.

The Aim of the Parivar is to unite the members of these families into one cultural and social groupNow it is considered necessary to set up a website for publishing the activities of the Parivar, and therefore this website has come into existence.
