- Dr.A.V.Anoop had been the Secretary of The Malayalee Club of Chennai for four (4) consecutive years. What is significant is the fact that The Malayalee Club of Chennai is the oldest Malayalees’ Club outside Kerala. Dr.A.V.Anoop as Secretary Organised its Centenary Celebrations during 1997. It was he who took the initiative to hold the “SWATI SMRITI” Music & Dance festival during his Secretary tenure, which has now become an annual event. During the Swati Smriti festival eminent patrons of art are honoured, the very first receipient being (Late) Semmangudi Srinivasa Iyer.
- Another notable feature of his tenure at The Malayalee Club is the instituting of “National Harmony Programme” in which all the Association people from Kashmir to Kanyakumari speaking all the different languages of the country, in their language held music & dance programmes at The Malayalee Club, which too has been institutionalised as an Annual Programme.
