Essay

Why do late muthuramalinga thevar, one of the Indian freedom fighter is so popular in tamil nadu?what's so special about him?

With due respects to him, he wouldn't have liked the way his name is being used/exploited now. He was just a local leader with limited influence in a particular area, more known as a caste leader for a particular group (Thevars)  but now equated with God. In his lifetime he was popular across the castes, done many good things for people, irrespective of their castes but known for his proudness being a Thevar . He had his share of spat with a Dalit leader and even was accused in his killing. His memory was fading away after his death, but somehow resurrected by the community groups belonging to his caste. He is now the symbol of "Thevars", the dominant upper caste Hindu group in the southern districts. Some of the members of this caste are blatantly anti-Dalit and maintain/promote caste feeling in their area.His birthday is being celebrated as Thevar Jayanthi. One of the main roads in Chennai was renamed as Pasumpon Thevar road violating the convention of not naming the roads with caste names.  Popular political parties played their card, without annoying their group by glorifying him.

In short, he is not as great as he was made to be (when compared with other tall leaders from TN like Periyar, Rajaji, Kamaraj and Annadurai) but just being promoted/hyped by a particular caste group. Of course he is not be blamed for that. If he has been alive he wouldn't have liked this a bit.
