Our Founders

Since our company’s establishment in 1980, we at Vaighai Agro have witnessed a spectacular rise in our business, profitability,
accolades, and worldwide recognition, thanks to our founders’ commitment and vision. Coupled with a passion for working diligently
with the knack of spotting a good business potential, our founders – Shri K. Periyasamy Nadar, Shri S. Varadarajan, and
Shri S. S. V. Chellakani Nadar – went on to create a rice bran processing superpower. The business continues
to build on its predecessor’s successes to propel the organisation ahead and add to India’s economy.

Shri K. Periyasamy Nadar

Shri K. Periyasamy Nadar hailed from a poor family in a tiny village called Karisalkulam. He came to Madurai to seek his fortune at the age of 13, and began by working at a grocery shop. He started trading in cattle feed, travelling from place to place on a bicycle. Diligent and meticulous, he was a man with tremendous foresight. He went on to trade in textiles, blue metals, fireworks and matches, set up a printing press and was instrumental in setting up the Cattle Feed Association in Madurai. He played a major role in bringing up the Sivakasi Nadar Wedding Hall.

Shri ‘Annabathi’ S. Varadharajan

Shri S. Varadarajan, equipped with nothing but a middle school education, travelled on foot to Madurai from his village when he was only 7 years old. A visionary and a leader, he had an innate perception of how to do business. He began by making camphor at home, and later saw huge success in the incense sticks business – he marketed “Annabathi” to 8 states all over India. He visited Europe and the USSR – he had gone a long way indeed from his tiny village in South India. After a successful stint in construction, he started Vaighai in 1980 with his friends. He was fascinated by football, and sponsored the Annabathi Football Match and the 100-sovereign Gold Cup.

Shri S.S.V. Chellakani Nadar

Shri S. S. V. Chellakani Nadar was a freedom fighter in the Indian struggle for independence. After independence, he was affiliated to the Congress Party and was close friends with prominent politicians like Mr. K. Kamaraj, Mr. P. A. Ramchandran and Mr. M. S. V. Chitan. An eminently successful man, he did very well in a multitude of areas from printing to the manufacture of fireworks, grease and cement. A simple man who valued integrity above all else, he was passionate about business and worked industriously right until his demise in 2005 at the age of 85.
