Pathanamthitta: Mangattu Bhattathiri visited his beloved school teacher during his first journey to Aranmula Parthasarathy temple with the Onam dishes. Raveendra Babu Bhattathiri of Mangattu ‘Illam’ visited his school teacher Sarasamma of Idayaranmula on Monday.
She served as a teacher at Devivilasom school in Kumaranallur.
