Velu Nachiyar

Rani Velu Nachiyar, was a queen of Sivaganga estate in 1760-1790. She was the first queen to fight against the British colonial power in India, even long before the famous Rani of Jhansi.

In the long and arduous journey to Indian Freedom
Many places and persons from this holy Indian soil
Played  role very important worthy of remembrance-their toil
For all the times to come -none can erase their fame or spoil!

In the far south of Tamilnadu valiant people
From places deep stood firm fought the British tooth and nail
One such was the valiant lady VELU NACHIYAR -queen
Of Sivaganga, first to fight before Jansi Rani-keen!

Independance day seventy second shortly arrives
On this happy and holy occasion- the patriotic
Citizens of our Motherland India that is Bharath
Offer homage to Velu Nachiyar and her clan as wealth!

  1. It is interesting to note the JOURNEY TO FREEDOM Part 20 carries the news of “VELU NACHIAR” of Sivagangai. I came to know she was well ahead of Jhansi Rani in the fight for Freedom. Nowadays there is an increasing talk of Woman’s rights. From the history it is known that woman also equally played a major role in power share.

    Even now we can see the traces of the palace in Sivagangai. We may also note the famous quotes ” SIVAGANGAI SEEMAI” and “MARUTHU SAHOTHARARGAL” of Sivagangai.
    It is our duty to remember and honor “VELU NACHIAR” for her brave fight.

    The reading of the Journey enriches my knowledge of our freedom struggle. Thank you Sir.

    Let us celebrate this birthday of our nation with full of pride and honor.
