Message from Principal


Dr. G. Girija Devi
Principal, MMNSS College Kottiyam

“Education without character is like a flower without fragrance. An education system that doesn’t recognize this can be self-defeating”. This statement of the world renowned spiritual genius, Swami Vivekananda, conveys the importance of education in the progress of mankind. From the days of supremacies of the affluent and suppression of the depressed, the country underwent sea changes through social and political reformation. Of the many leaders who championed the cause of independence and social reforms in Kerala was the father founder of the Nair Service Society, Bharathakesari Mannathu Padmanabhan. His dream to enable even the distant villager to study and learn got realized through the setting up of the Nair Service Society, which had with public contribution and participation set up a vast network of educational institutions across our State. This heralded the popularization and democratization of learning resulting in improving the education and life styles of people.

Mannam Memmorial N.S.S. College in Kottiyam has this legacy weaved with sacrifice and unstinted hard work and contribution of the local community. Hence it is our responsibility to fondly carry forward the rich tradition to impart and gain knowledge for the betterment of society and the country. The College is committed to take care of its students in providing the very basics for life and lead them to become responsible citizens for a better tomorrow.
