My grand-father Dr.S.Selvarajan was born on 16.01.1916, along with four brothers and four sisters. Among them, he was the only one who learned Siddha from his father Late Subbarayalu Naidu. Though my great grandfather was a diamond merchant, he was practicing Siddha at free of cost to the patients.
However, my grand-father Late Dr.S.Selvarajan was practicing Siddha as his profession at Erode. He was one of the Siddha Consultants to our Late Chief Minister Mr.M.G.Ramachandran. After his demise on 29.10.1983, his only son, that is, my father Mr.S.Ravichandran who learned Siddha from my grand-father, was forced to practice Siddha.
