Welcome to TLPMS

Thyagi Leon Prouchandy Memorial Sangam(TLPMS) has been founded in Pondicherry in the year 2004, to perpetuate the memory of Thyagi Leon Prouchandy, who allied with the movement started in south-east Asia by Subhas Chandra Bose to free India from the foreign yoke in the 1940s. He contributed a lot to the success of the movement at Saigon in Vietnam and paid the price for it at the end of the Second World War.

This Sangam or Association has also the objective to perpetuate the memory of Darmanathan Prouchandy and Saverikannu Prouchandy of Pondicherry. The former was the first Tamilian to found a steam navigation line in French Indochina, much before the foundation of the Si.Vacompany and the Swadeshi steam Navigation Company, initiated by V.O.Chidambaram in 1906 in Tuticorin. He can be rightly called as the ˜Puducheri Kappal Ottiya Thamizhan. Savarikannu Prouchandy is the nephew of Darmanathan Prouchandy.
