    Thank you for sharing this piece of information. I believe INS Kattabomman, an Indian Navy establishment, located in Tamil Nadu, is named after this great freedom-fighter.

    A good information about the Veerapandi Kattabomman. In one of the Telugu movies, NTR played the role of this man for a few minutes in a song sequence in which freedom fighters like Alluri Sita Rama Raju, Kattabomman and another twp freedom fighters were shown. Kattabomman refused to pay tax for the crop and questioned the British rulers why we should pay tax? he troubled the Britishers and finally, they have killed him. Many such people suffered a lot to protect the interest of our country and the fellow people. It is really good to remember such a great person on his birthday. Today India is a free country due to the sacrifices made by people like him for obtaining Independence.

    Though I have written an article on Veerapandia Kattabomman, I failed to get his date of birth right. Members can refer my ISC article to know much about the great warrior of the South.

    Juana, you are right.

    The most tallest and inspiring warrior of Tamil Nadu Veerapandiya Katta Bomman was the terror to those who were against his attitude. The legend says that even Britishers respected this great warrior for his courage to stand up against the British regime for freedom cause.

    Mr.SuN a good article with details of this great hero, Veerapandi Katabomman who stood against the British, right up the very end where he is hanged by Major Bannerman.

    The Tamil movie (1959) by the same name portrayed Shivaji Ganesan in the lead. The film's premiere was held in London and later in TamilNadu achieving a cult status. Shivaji Ganesan won an international award of the Best Actor at the 1960 Afro-Asian festival in Cairo wherein he received a standing ovation for 5 minutes. After this the movie was dubbed in Telugu and Hindi.
