Inspiration is like a spark. It can light the whole city. One frail lady with strong conviction has motivated thousands of others to have good education and be proud citizens. One Velammal has kindled the spirit of thousands of Velammalians. A very humble, rustic lady with rural background and an unassuming attitude was how one described Smt. Velammal. when they met her for the first time. But this frail lady, with her conviction and determination inspired the society and transformed it through her devoted son, Shri M.V.Muthuramalingam like Jeeja Bai influenced Chatrapati Shivaji centuries ago. Her Philosophy was quite simple, She used to say, " You take care of the society and the society will reciprocate. You are not in isolation nor is your family. It is all a part of the society and the growth is interdependent ".
