Humour , culture and politics existed harmoniously in the thoughts and writings of one of Mathrubhumi’s best reporters C. Harikumar, who unfortunately passed away at the age of 52. He belonged to Adoor, and was related to well known humour writer E.V.Krishna Pillai and comedy actor Adoor Bhasi. Harikumar’s humour column earlier in Mathrubumi weekend edition gave a hint of the relationship.
Born on March 16, 1961 to R Chandrashekaran Nair P R and Bharati Amma C K, Harikumar worked in Mathrubhumi's various units of Kozhikode, Thiruvananthapuram, Kottayam, Pathanamthitta and Alapuzha. He was well noted for his assembly reports.
