The President, SNDP Yogam ( 1933 – 1938 )

C. Krishnan (1867-1938) played a key role in bringing out radical social transformation in Kerala society which was steeped in ignorance, superstition, casteism, poverty, untouchability and other evils. A defender of human rights, he propogated the ideals of humanism, social justice and democratic values. He was called ‘Mitavadi’ C. Krishnan after the newspaper that he published from 1913 to ’38 from Calicut for spreading the message of the reformatory movement.  The Government of Kerala states “The Mitavadi was in the forefront of the movement for social reforms and the uplift of the weaker sections of society”.

Sahodaran Ayyappan

Sahodaran Ayyappan B.A

President- SNDP Yogam – 1940-1943

Sahodaran Ayyappan was born into a traditional Ezhava family of Cherai in Ernakulam district as the son of Kumabalathuparambil Kochavu Vaidyar and Unnuli on 21 August 1889. He lost his father at an early age and was brought up under the guidance of his elder brother Achuthan Vaidyar. After having his school education primarily in Cherai and North Paravoor, Ayyappan did his pre-university course at the Malabar Christian College, Kozhikode. He had to discontinue his further education for the time being while at Madras due to ill health.

While at Kozhikode he began speaking in public platforms stressing the need for social reforms. It was at this time that he had the opportunity to interact closely with Sree Narayana Guru at whose encouragement he decided to continue his studies and took B.A. from Maharaja’s College, Thiruvananthapuram in 1916. He also met the poet Kumaran Asan during this time. By this time the social revolutionary in Ayyappan had come of age and was ready to fight against the social evil of caste system.

C. R. Kesavan Vaidyar

C. R. Kesavan Vaidyar (August 26, 1904 – June 11, 1999) ,  President SNDP Yogam (1966- 1970)

Vaidyar was a social worker, industrialist and traditional Ayurvedic Vaidyar and a great follower of Sree Narayana Guru. He was born to Chulikat Raman and Kunjalichi of an ezhava family in Kondad Village, about 2.5 KM from Ramapuram Town Meenachil taluk in Kottayam District. He was an active participant in the historic, social reform movements such as Vaikom Satyagraha and Guruvayur Satyagraha. He studied the traditional Indian system of medicine and was awarded the Vaidyaratnam title by K.C. Manavikraman, the Zamorin of Kozhikode in 1953.

He started manufacturing an ayurvedic soap called Chandrika, from Irinjalakuda near Thrissur in Kerala. When he first made Chandrika Ayurvedic Soap, Ayurveda was not very well known or used in non-medicinal products. In the beginning Kesavan Vaidyar travelled on foot or by bus carrying the wooden case all by himself. There were harsh times when he even travelled by holding onto the ladder on the back of the bus and slept outside shops waiting for them to open, so that he could sell his product to them. Now the soap is exported to several western, Middle Eastern and far eastern countries.
