Late Thiruvengadam Veluppillai

Thursday the 6th of January 2011 marked the first death anniversary of Mr. Thiruvengadam Velupillai, the octogenerian father of LTTE leader Mr.V. Prabhakaran.

Mr.T. Veluppillai breathed his last on the night of Wednesday the 6th of January 2010. The 86 year old retired government servant’s birthday was on January 10th.

The sad thing is that his body was cremated at the central cremation grounds in Oorani, Valvettithurai on the same day of his birthday.

Valvettithurai (VVT) is a littoral town along the coast of Vadamaratchy in the Jaffna peninsula which is in the northern part of Srilanka.

The fact the world should know is that his youngest son was the leader of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) organization that fought a secessionist war with the Sri Lankan government for a period of more than three decades.

This writer, who is also from VVT as that of the great soul, pays his homage to Late Thiruvengadam Veluppillai.

I salute you great father !
