    Hi,

    I'm writing an essay on Tamil war heroes or Tamil who showed extreme acts of bravery - past and present. Can someone please provide me with a list of names?


    I have the following: Kattabomman, Chinnamalai, Madurai Brothers (spelling) and few others who fought British. From ancient time, I have Elara (SL king), Raja Chola and Karikalan.


    Any more?


    Finding heroes from the modern period is tough - there is Saravanan who fought in the Kargil wars but the rest are Tamil Tiger fighters and Im not sure if it would be right to include them.


    Any help would be appreciated.

    I understand why some racist, casteist, anti dravidian imperialists hate some Dravidian leaders.

    The same kind of bigots were licking colonial arse and after they left wanted to have it all for themselves and wanted to dominate everyone else.Could not stand someone who stood up to them

    Some people are a disgrace to mankind.
