Life and works
In 1908, he was arrested by the British and was the first political prisoner in Madras jail. While serving a prison term, he was afflicted by leprosy and was shifted to Salem jail. Since leprosy was regarded as a contagious disease, the British authorities forbade him to travel by rail after his release and hence he was forced to travel on foot. He continued to fight for independence and was incarcerated many times until 1922. He eventually succumbed to leprosy on 23 July 1925. He was the author of the journal Jnanabhanu and books Ramanuja Vijayam and Madhya vijayam.
