Sri. T K Madhavan (1885- 1930) is the one who fought for the human rights in such a brave way that Kerala had ever seen. T K Madhavn was closely related to the activities of Sree Narayana Guru. T K Madhavan realized that the castism and religious problems should be solved not only in Kerala but also nation wide.
Even though he had only high school education he gained good skill in speaking and writing in English language by his own hard work. In the age of seventeen he made a spell binding speech at ‘Sree Moolam Praja Sabha’, the subject was ‘Disabilities of Ezhavas in Govt. service’ . Everyone in that sabha including Divan V P Madhavaravu, appreciated him for the great speech.
T K’s first struggle was for ‘Human Equality’. Those days the ‘Avarnas’ , Christians and Muslims were not permitted to join in govt. jobs like revenue, army etc. T K started fight against it. He coordinated people and conducted meetings in every place like Kottayam, Thiruvananthapuram etc. By his continuous effort, at last govt. permitted them to join in revenue services.
With support of SNDP Yogam, T K coordinated a strike against liquor. This strike got very historical importance, and in 1906, Sree Narayana Gurudevan gave a famous and important message against liquor ‘ Liquor is poison, do not make it, do not give it and do not have it’. After continuous strikes and meetings conducted everywhere in Kerala, the govt. promised him to stop liquor business within few years.
R. Sankar (1909–1972) was an Indian politician and the third Chief Minister of Kerala. He was born on April 30, 1909 to Raman and Kunchali Amma in Kuzhikkalidavaka village in Kottarakkara. Though born in a large family and despite the not so favourable conditions, he was fortunate enough to get good education. His formal education began in the Puthoor Primary School and later continued in an English School in Kottarakkara.
In 1924, he joined Maharajas College (present University College), Thiruvananthapuram, with the help of a wealthy and benevolent relative, as his father could not afford the expenses for his education.
After graduating from Maharajas College, he joined Law College, Thiruvananthapuram in 1933. After studies, he took teaching as his profession. He joined Sivagiri High School as Principal. It was during those days, that he associated himself with the activities of the SNDP Yogam. A very good orator, he impressed many with his inspiring talks on the social injustice prevalent in those days, particularly the discriminatory attitude shown towards backward class communities. He also raised his voice for equal opportunities for backward classes, in all sectors. He studied Kumaran Asan’s poetry deeply and attended many literary meetings throughout Travancore.

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 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 (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.
