Sengam Padaithan Kaadu, as Pattukkottaiyaar liked to call it, was the village that gave rise to Pattukkottai Kalyanasundaram, who in turn, left behind a wealth of simple but immortal lyrics to the world. His beautiful village, now being called in a corrupt form, Sengappaduthan Kaadu, is located Southeast of local revenue head-quarters, Pattukkottai (10°15'36'' North / 79°19'37'' East), in Thanjavur District of Tamil Nadu, India.
Kalyanasundaram was born to Arunachalanaar and Visalatchi Ammaiyaar in a humble farming family on April 13, 1930. Nobody witnessed any sign of a poet-in-the-making in young Kalyanasundaram. Neither did he have a formal education, nor did he complete his schooling. However, as it may be unfair not to expect a poet from a family that had a tradition of poets, Kalyanasundaram will transform to be a poet and will come to be known as 'Pattukkottai Kalyanasundaram'. Kalyanasundaram's father is known to have written a treatise called Musukundanaattu Vazhinadaik Kummi. This book was written in traditional Kummi, a distinct Tamil poetical style. His surviving brother Mr. Ganapathisundaram, a poet and a playwright, played the role of a constructive critic and helped Kalyanasundaram grow into what we know him as today. Therefore, it may not be inappropriate to say that young Kalyanasundaram was basically 'equipped' with talents and expressed them at his earliest opportunity.
Kalyanasundaram soon grew into a tall handsome young man. His family was not an influential one and he had only limited alternatives to contemplate. He himself did not seriously consider poetry for his career. His attention turned towards acting. Yes, acting, indeed! In the mean time he had many opportunities to learn first-hand, the sufferings of common folk, who toiled dawn to dusk tilling their tiny pieces of lands. He himself worked alongside them. His labors and struggles were not just physical, but a kind of resource that enriched his thoughts, which will later transform into immortal lyrics. It may be a wild guess, but what if Kalyanasundaram had been born in a wealthy family in the same village and educated in formal Tamil literature? Perhaps, a typical feudal lord or a poet of higher order who never cared for common folks' miseries!
He had an inclination for the 'Self-respect Movement', which was storming across the length and breadth of the extreme south of the erstwhile Madras Presidency and was spearheaded by the legendary EVR Periyar. Young men were gravitated towards Periyar's thought provoking speeches, which did make sense to those who had been let down for too long in the name of destiny. No wonder then that Kalyanasundaram too was attracted by it. During this time he also had opportunities to listen to the fiery speeches of Self-respect Movement's indisputable pillar, Pattukkottai Azhagiri.
Also, miseries of his childhood made him pay special attention to Communism. Local Communist revolutionaries like Iraniyan, Sivaraman, Kalappal Kuppu and Ambalapattu Arumugam were almost a mythical inspiration for the younger generation in Pattukkottai area in 1940s. This was the time the British were savagely hunting down Communists. The trend continued even into post-independence India as socialists were taking control of the administrative and political machineries at the higher echelons. The revolutionaries were shot down successively in villages surrounding Pattukkottai in 1951. This had an impact on Kalyanasundaram and pushed him towards Communism. He was, in fact, an emerging politician!
It appears that Kalyanasundaram had sung several stimulating songs in the public propaganda meetings of both Self-respect Movement and Communist organizations. As the Indian government was tightening its noose on Communists, several of them went underground. Perhaps, this might have been one of the reasons why Kalyanasundaram opt for an alternative career.
An actor from Pattukkottai named T. S. Durairaj was then with Modern Theaters, a movie making company in Salem (This Company used to make cowboy-style movies as late as 1970s. The Eastern Ghats around Salem was well suited for this kind of movies). Upon approach, Mr. Durairaj suggested Kalyanasundaram to join drama before attempting for movies and sent him to 'Sakthi Naataka Sabha' in Madurai. He started out not as an actor, but as a crew member. One of his earliest dramas was 'Kaviyin Kanavu'. He played the role of Rajaguru in Kaviyin Kanavu. This was in October 1951. It is not clear what his first drama was, as this company was managing quite a few dramas around that time, such as, 'D.S.P.', 'En Thangai', 'Muthal Rowdy'. During this period he was known as A.K. Sundaram, a shortened form of his lengthy name - Arunachalam Kalyanasundaram! He also played comedy roles. The drama troupe moved from place to place. Thus Kalyanasundaram came to Pondicherry along with the troupe. His moving to Pondicherry would have bearings in his future endeavors.
He had a chance to meet 'Paavendhar' Bharathidasan in Pondicherry, during the first half of 1952 and became well acquainted with him. During his association with Bharathidasan, copying his poems and documenting them properly were his chores. In other words, he was a student of Bharathidasan. Kalyanasundaram even wrote poems with the pseudonym 'Akalya', an acronym coined from his lengthy name! Bharathidasan was then writing dialogues and lyrics for Modern Theaters. This enabled Kalyanasundaram to visit movie production companies along with his mentor. Later Bharathidasan quit writing for Modern Theaters, but Kalyanasundaram stayed on for a while. However, the latter himself does not appear to have written songs for movies at this juncture. For a while, he also worked for Bharathidasan's magazine 'Kuyil'.
His sojourn with Bharathidasan sharpened his poetry skills. Though both were poets, technically Paavendhar and Kalyanasundaram were poles apart. Bharathidasan was known for handling sophistication, in the modern tradition of Bharathiyar, while Kalyanasundaram was interested in simplicity and incorporated plenty of dialectical Tamil words. Though their styles differed, their works cater to the demands of both common folk as well as literate Tamils.
Soon 'Sakthi Naataka Sabha' was dissolved. Kalyanasundaram moved to Madras and joined 'Sivaji Naataka Mantram' and continued acting. This was probably in 1953 (exact time is not traceable). After an initial phase of financial hardship, writing songs to this and other drama companies and acting, eased his monetary constraints.
Kalyanasundaram married to a wonderful woman, Gowravambal from Athikkottai (a village adjacent to Pattukkottai) at the age of 27. His mentor Bharathidasan preside over the nuptials on September 11, 1957 at Madras and it was well attended. In 1959, this couple gave birth to a fine baby boy. They named him Kumaravel.
In 1958 Tamil cinema magazine, 'Pesum Padam', chose Kalyanasundaram as the best lyricist of the year. The title 'Makkal Kavignar' was conferred on him by Coimbatore Labor Union (?) sometime in 1959. Poems reflect the principles held by poets. With Kalyanasundaram, sympathizing with the poor and the under privileged, and exposing those who predate on them, were the governing principles. There is a high frequency of such ideas, in the form of giving advice to the common man, in his lyrics. Thus he wrote and lived for common folk. He indeed deserves to be called 'Makkal Kavignar'.
Within five years (1954 - 1959) he made remarkable ascent in the filmdom of southern India. This may be termed as an accomplishment. His meteoric rise was not any chance, but his preparedness to make use of opportunities well. The candle was burning brighter as days passed by. However, nature had for him and the Tamil country an altogether different agenda. Yes, it all started with a minor headache that progressed into severe migraine. It was sometime around late September 1959. Pattukkottaiyaar underwent a surgery on his nose. It was supposed to have been a minor surgical operation. But the wind was determined to show its strength. Pattukkottaiyaar got into post-operative complications. Bleeding due to the surgery became more severe. It appeared he did indeed recover from bleeding shortly after, but a sudden massive bleeding took its toll on October 8, 1959. The bright roaring meteor went into tranquility at the same velocity that it came. The man, who was made to leave marks in history, did so within a short period of three decades and became immortal by his lyrics.
After the untimely demise of Pattukkottaiyaar, there were several movies released that had his lyrics, thus stretching his legacy for another half-a-decade. The last movie was 'Mahane Kel', released in 1965. In total he had written lyrics for 58 movies.
First compilation of Pattukkottai Kalyanasundaram's songs appeared in 1965 in print form. This was possible by the tireless work of P.E. Balakrishnan and his publisher 'NCBH'. Later various authors took up the cause and worked on it. Some of them were dedicated to bring out complete or near complete versions of Pattukkottaiyaar's works. P.E.B. and K. Jeevabharathi have done their best. Comparative studies and criticism have also been published in the form of books by several authors, like Irakuladasan, M.P. Manivel, Tha. Pandian, Su. Solamon Pappaiah, Ki. Sembiyan, Paa. Veeramoni, Paa. Udayakumar and others. Such books by experts are much needed. In such books, researchers weigh poets against other comparable poets and criticize their poems and bring forth justifications for it, which reveal hidden meanings of the poets' verses. In other words, poets and their poems are 'exposed'! A personal documentary with special reference to Pattukkottaiyaar has been published by 'Dilrooba' Shanmugam. This book provides insight into Pattukkottaiyaar's personal dimensions. Also, innumerable articles on Pattukkottaiyaar have been published, since his death, in various Tamil magazines. University of Madras has an endowment that funds research projects on Pattukkottaiyaar's works.
Tamilnadu Murpokku Ezhuthalar Sangam, Pattukkottai, brought out souvenirs on 50th, 56th and 60th birth anniversaries of Pattukkottaiyaar. A bronze statue was unveiled at a busy junction in Pattukkottai town and a special souvenir was released on the statue unveiling ceremony in 1995.
The Government of Tamil Nadu has fittingly done its part by recognizing Pattukkottaiyaar. In 1981, then Chief Minister of the state, Mr.M.G. Ramachandran conferred posthumously the prestigious Bharathidasan Award to Pattukkottaiyaar. Later in 1993, then Chief Minister Ms. Jayalalitha Jayaram declared nationalization of Pattukkottaiyaar's literary works. A memorial structure, Pattukkottai Kalyanasundaram Manimandapam, has been erected in Pattukkottai and was inaugurated by then Chief Minister Mr. Muthuvel Karunanidhi in 2000.

The Manora fort is situated 65-km away from Thanjavur (Tamilnadu / India). The fort was built by Rajah Serfoji in 1814 to commemorate the victory of the British over Napoleon Bonaparte at Waterloo. It is an 8-storied tower, which is 300-meter high from where one can have a panoramic view of the palm-fringed Bay of Bengal. The fort derives its name Manora from the word Minaret, which means a small minar.
Manora is a small tourism place for weekend holidays. There is a boating service available from Tamilnadu Tourism Department to go for a small ride for a fee. If this place around Manora is properly developed, will attract a many tourists who visits Tanjore. I visited Manora nearly 5 times (whenever I visit to Pattukottai or Tanjore/Thanjavur), atleast one time every year to see if there is any development. But nothing developed by the government. Even they don't care about.
Every year there was news about the development of the Manora Coastal area by the Tourism Department or by the Tanjore Collector, but nothing developed. See below the Reference Links for the details of announcements for development of Manora Coastal Area.
If you like to step-up the Manora Tower, you are not allowed and the way after 2 storey was closed few years back, stating that the building is weak. So you will miss exciting opportunity to see the panaromic view of the beautiful sea from the Manora Tower.
