Kunjan Nambiar was, no doubt. a poet of great repute and versatility, an excellent story teller of Kerala. His guru was a famous story teller Pothiyil Rama chakyar. Pothiyil was an expert in the art form called Chakyar Koothu in Kerala.This koothu- entertainment is quite popular across Kerala, involving story telling on the stage before the audience, profusely using Sanskrit slokas. They were also allowed to tease the audience and even the king. The satirical contents make such koothus interesting to watch. A fair knowledge of Sanskrit and good pronunciation of Sanskrit words is an added advantage.
