Many people have played a role in the social and cultural history of Kerala in many ways and have contributed greatly to the struggle for freedom.
Kerala is proud of her immense contributions nationally and internationally. Listed below are some of the most famous activists and freedom fighters who have contributed in many ways. These are names we should never forget.
By the treaties of 1723 and 1795 between British East India Company and Travancore, Travancore accepted British supremacy and the company promised help to the State in case of external aggression.
A similar treaty was also made in 1791 among the British and King of Cochin. So for a decade or two later Tippu’s exit all Kerala fell under the political control of the British East India Company.
Then, in 180O, Kerala was divided into 3 political units namely Travancore, Cochin and Malabar. Later many thinkers and journalists of Kerala brought awareness among people how they are suppressed with their rights.
The people fought for their rights without considering any particular religion, caste or any discrimination, everyone set their goal to make India free from British.
