Abraham John is also credited with playing a crucial role in the popularization of the Pettiyum Parayum, the traditional dewatering mechanism made of wooden planks, in Kuttanad. A Mr. Brunton is said to be the one who brought the device to Kumarakom but he was unwilling to share the technical details of the machine with anyone. Abraham John, apparently, spent an entire night in water in order to understand the design of the new device. Later, he sketched it in a paper and designed the device himself.
