There were no memorials, epitaphs or memorabilia for Naresh, but for a passport size photograph, still held with his mother, Smt. Subhadramma. The valiant soldier’s deeds went unsung, except at Sainik School, Kazhakootam, Kerala, where generations of cadets remembered him with pride and reverence. For he was the first of several alumni from the school, who laid down their life for the country. Colonel NJ Nair, Ashok Chakra, Kirti Chakra the highest decorated Soldier in the Indian Army till date, Major Harshan Ashok Chakra and several other Martyrs from Sainik School Kazhakootam followed Second Lieutenant Radha Mohan Naresh’s resolute footsteps into heroic martyrdom .
Honouring Martyrs from the school during the ongoing Golden Jubilee celebrations of Sainik School Kazhakootam was weaved in as one of key programmes by the Old Boys Association of the school. Captain Ramesh Babu (Retd) a member of the Old Boys Association is the architect of this unique but meaningful venture. “There is no better way and occasion to honour the Heroes and inspire the present generation” said Captain Ramesh Babu (Retd). For Dr Gopi Mohan Naresh and Mr Praveen Naresh, who were 17 and 5 years old respectively, when their brother fell in battle, it was a very emotional, proud and private moment, as they lit a flame at the precise spot where their brother died. A bust of Second Lieutenant Radha Mohan Naresh contributed by the family of the brave officer will be unveiled at his Alma Mater in January 2012, during the culmination of Golden Jubilee celebrations.
