Dheeran Chinnamalai, Kongu Chieftain born on 17/4/1756
Indian freedom did not fructify overnight
It was indeed a long drawn battle for decades tight
Hundreds of thousands sacrificed their life, wealth and all
Under great local and national leaders quite tall!
Local chieftains many, many worked in unison
Fought with the outsiders with all their might as bright sun
One such was Dheeran Chinnamalai Kongu chieftain
Born on this day in seventeen fifty six to maintain!
Born as Theerthagiri Manradiyar in the South
A Kongu chieftain rose up against The British East
India company and along with his army
Along with Mysore Tipu Sultan and made history.
