Thiruvananthapuram: As the iconic Malayalam revolutionary figure, VS Achuthanandan, approaches his centenary milestone on October 20, 2023, Kerala is gearing up to commemorate the life and legacy of a man whose contributions have indelibly shaped the Communist Party of India. Born on October 20, 1923, into a humble family in Alappuzha, VS Achuthanandan has been a towering figure in the political landscape, championing the causes of the underprivileged and marginalized throughout his life. His journey from obscurity to becoming a prominent leader, advocating for environmental concerns, employment opportunities, human rights, and women's empowerment, is a testament to his unwavering commitment and his self-made leadership.

In recent years, VS Achuthanandan has been leading a quieter life due to the effects of age. Family members and close associates are expected to participate in the celebrations to mark his 100th birthday, as per the doctor's recommendations, which advise against any external visitors.
