newsimageChief Minister hands over bust to High Commission office The first Indian High Commissioner to the United Kingdom will now have a fitting memorial in London. Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan handed over a bust of V.K. Krishna Menon to officials from the Indian High Commission office in London on Saturday in Kozhikode, Krishna Menon’s home town. The bust created by artist Selva Rajan will be installed at the High Commission office soon. It was Asian Lite International, a London-based publication, which took the initiative in setting up a memorial for Menon in London considering the long-standing wish of Indian community there. Menon, who had lived in London for over 40 years before India’s independence, was instrumental in the formation of the Indian League which played a major role in the formation of opinion in the U.K. in favour of India's independence.
