Book Description

A biographical account of our father Thanigaimani V.S. Chengalvarayan was written in Thamizh and published in the year 1972. The first part of this book constituted the authobiographical note written by him. The latter two chapters and the appendices were a direct compilation of the daily entries made by him in his diary.

For the benefit of those who cannot read the Thamizh script and as a tribute to his evergreen memory,

We thought of bringing out the contents of the same book in English, rearranged by theme, on the occasion of the 125th anniversary of his birth.

We would like to thank our families for their support and assistance in bringing out this book.
