VOC Pillai Photos - Date unknown

I am proud and honoured to post the photographs of Sri. VOC Pillai, one of our great Freedom Fighters from South India. Most of us probably wouldn't have seen photos of Sri. VOC Pillai.

Until yesterday, It was Sivaji Ganesan..in my mind, whenever I thought about Sri. VOC Pillai......thanks to his Wonder role in the movie "Kappal Ohttiya Tamizhar".

These photos are courtesy of my good friend Chidambaram ( VOC's grand son ). Thanks Chidambaram !

Excellent...Thanks for sharing...Great souls, who fought for our country.......yes, if we think of VOC, Raja raja chozhan, kattabomman...we visualize Sivaji as he brought life to those great characters to current generation....Current so called leaders talk tamil tamil..and construct statues for themselves...But forgot our REAL TAMIL LEADERS LIKE VOC.........
