The Mulakanadu Sabha was founded in Madras in 1936. The Sabha owes its existence today due to the great vision and commitment of our Pedhalus of yesteryears who shaped the destinies of this Sabha which has served the members of this community for so many years with distinction. We need to express our gratitude to all those who have been associated with the Sabha, as Presidents and Members of committees.

Brief life sketches of our stalwarts are given below, which could be a source of inspiration for the future generation and enthuse them to continue the wonderful service done by the earlier generation. The Presidents who have served this Sabha for the past 70 years are:
