For long freedom fighters in thousands sacrificed all
Mahatmaji gave guidance and inspiration tall
All parts of the country contributed in great measure
Not a little of grudging and grumbling with pleasure!

From the South was born a soul noble known as V O C
On fifth of September eighteen seventy two-crazy
Disciple of Bal Gangadar Tilak—great leader
VOC known as Kappalottiya Thamizhan!

First to launch a shipping service – Tuticorin-Colombo
A member of the Indian National Congress
Later charged with sedition, sentenced life imprisonment
Barrister he was and his license was revoked with contempt!
