Ondiveeran Pagdai was a Commander-in-Chief of India who fought against the British East India Company from the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. Ondiveeran belonged to an Arunthathiyar community and is seen as a hero among us. Due to pressure from the Arunthathiyar community, the Tamil Nadu government laid the foundation stone for a memorial to Ondiveeran in Tirunelveli district in 2011. To commemorate the sacrifice in contribution to the nation, the Indian Postal Department issued the Ondiveeran India stamp. Ondiveeran was born in Sankaran Kovil (presently known as Thenkasi district) as the eighth son of his parents, who was known as Muthuveeran in his childhood. The family of Sri Ondiveeran lost their headship because of the revenue collection officers of the Arcot Nawabs.
