In the beginning of the 20th century, the great Nationalist leader Subramania Siva of Tamilnadu contributed immensely to the movement for the liberation of Indians from the slavery of the British rule. He was on of those selfless patriots who sacrificed their lives for the cause of the national movement in Tamilnadu under the leadership of Tilak. The others were poet Subramania Bharathi, V.V.S.Iyer, V.O.Chidambaram Pillai and Vanchinatham. Poet Bharathi described Subramania Siva as ‘Shivaji’1. He was a very close associate of V.O.Chidambaram Pillai, founder of Swadeshi Steam Navigation Company at Tuticorin. Siva inculcated a sense of nationalism and patriotic fervour to the people of Tamilnadu which played a great role in the National movement.
