Periyar – The Agitating Face Of Unbelief
Prof. John Raihly, an American historian of international repute, has pointed out that a great social revolution had taken place only in Tamil Nadu. But it had not occurred anywhere else in India during the last 2000 years. It was Periyar, the leader of the Dravidar kazhagam, who engineered that revolution.
The Socrates of South East Asia.
Father of the social reform movement
and arch enemy of ignorance;
customs and base manners.
