Padma Shri P. Parameswaran, one among the senior Pracharaks of RSS and the Founder Director of Bharatheeya Vichara Kendram, the centre of research for national reconstruction is an authority on ancient Indian wisdom, a prolific writer, researcher and a visionary committed for the cause of national resurgence. He was the General Secretary and National Vice President of Bharariya Jan Sangh and former Director of Deendayal Research Institute, New Delhi. Born in 1927 at Alappuzha District in Kerala, he had his Bachelor’s degree in History (Honours) with Distinction from Kerala University. Then he dedicated himself for the cause of national reconstruction by joining the RSS as a Pracharak and during the days of draconian emergency he was deprived the freedom of speech and letters and was imprisoned for 18 months.
Being an intellectual warrior, P. Parameswaran had the instinct and insight to identify and fight the anti-national, negative, divisive, onslaughts unleashed by the Left intellectuals and he succeeded in creating an atmosphere of awareness at the national level to resist the left waves and fill the national consciousness with Swadesi Spirit for the reconstruction of our great nation. Bharatheeya Vichara Kendram was established in 1982 by Parameswarji to promote Nationalist thoughts among the Keralites. It was followed by a compendium of research projects, National and International Seminars, Publication of Books and Journals. He was always happy to meet and exchange ideals of difference with eminent persons like Sri E.M.S. Nampiithiripad (First Chief Minister of Kerala), and Sri P. Govinda Pillai.

His intelligent expedition on the life and works of Swami Vivekananda and Karl Marx titled ‘Marx and Vivekananda’ is an excellent example of his insight and clarity of expression. His books like ‘Aurobindo the Prophet of Future’, ‘Sri Narayana Guru The Prophet of Renaissance’, ‘The Changing Society & Changeless Values’ etc. show his deep rooted stature in the national consciousness and commitment to the cause of national reconstruction. He was prophetic in exposing the hollowness of the constructed concept of Kerala Model and later his exposition was shared by eminent economist Dr. Amartya Sen. Considering his erudite scholarship in the ‘Life and Works of Swami Vivekananda’, he was invited to participate in the Centenary Celebrations of Swami Vivekananda’s Chicago address held in 1993. He is also the President of Vivekananda Kendra, Kanyakumari.

To crown all of these, considering his enthusiasm and endless efforts to reconstruct India on the traditional wisdom, the Nation honoured him with Padma Shri in 2004.
