About the Founder & Family - T.V.Ramasubbaiyer, the founding pillar of Dinamalar, was born in Nagercoil in a village named 'Thazhuvia Mahadevar Koil'. Even as a school boy, T.V.r. was a socially concious lad who survived for the uplifment of the weaker sections of the society.

In September 16, 1951 T.V.R. started the tamil daily, DINAMALAR in trivandrum to protect the rights of Tamils and to unite 'Nanjil Nadu' with Tamilnadu. Through trials and ordeals that he faced in this endeavor, TVR held steadfast in his conviction and prnciples in order to protect the Tamils and voice their hardships, always caring for their welfare and uplifment.

TVR a great and noble philanthropist equally loved by eminent persons as well as the common masses passed away on July 21, 1984.

But, to this day, the light that he lit is glowing ever so brightly and DINAMALAR marches ahead in the path of his immortal vision.
