Some fifteen kilometers from Calicut Kozhikode is a place called Kunnamangalam..which would translate into a hamlet with hills..in Malayalam. Karanthur is adjacent to Kunnamangalam towards Calicut (Kozhikode) and Koduvally adjacent to Kunnamangalam towards Wayanad. Kunnamangalam is on the kozhikode-wayanad road.
Kunnamangaslam has a theatre called Sindhu theater which we students used to frequent.IIM Kozhikode is in Kunnamangalam.
There was no full fledged bus-stand in Kunnamangalam prior to 1984 and the first moffusil bus stop came at this place around this time and presently there are two such stands.
As we proceed from Calicut (Kozhikode) towards wayanad the road at Kunnamangalam branches into another that goes towards the right to Chatamangalam where NIT Calicut is located some eight kilometers ahead .At Chatamangalam there is a river which has to be crossed and the location presents an excellent view a combination of water-ways and hills.
One of the shorter routes to Calicut (Kozhikode) from this place is via Karanthur through the Medical College Calicut.
Kunnamangalam must have changed a lot by now and must be in the memories of NIT Calicut alumni and IIM Kozhikode alumni as well.
