People from various walks of life, including leaders from across the political spectrum, bid adieu to veteran RSS ideologue P. Parameswaran as his mortal remains were cremated at his native Muhamma village in Alappuzha district in Kerala on Monday.
The body of the 93-year old thinker and writer, who died on Sunday, was brought from Thiruvananthapuram to the sleepy Muhamma village where a large number of people and leaders of different political parties besides the BJP-RSS workers paid their last respects.
Full state honours were accorded as Parameswaran was a Padma awardee.
After the last rites were completed, the funeral pyre was lit by his nephew. Parameswaran was a bachelor.
Parameswaran breathed his last in the wee hours of Sunday at Ottappalam in Palakkad district where he was undergoing Ayurvedic treatment.
