Shree Vengalil Krishnan Krishna Menon
(3 May 1896 – 6 October 1974)
The idea of establishing a chain of Sainik Schools in the country was conceived by late Shri V.K. Krishna Menon, the then Union Minister of Defence, in the year 1961.
Menon was an Indian nationalist, diplomat and statesman. He inspired widespread adulation and fervent detraction in both India and the West; to his supporters, he was an unapologetic champion of India in the face of Western imperialism.
