A brief history of MALLADI SATYALINGAM NAICKER

Malladi Satyalingam Naicker belongs to the Agnikula Kshatriya Community (Pallava) He was born at Coringa, a small village near Kakinada about 1863. Coringa had at one time commanded an over-seas trade and was a prosperous place.

Satyalingam’s ancestors were in Foreign Trade and rich. This prosperous Foreign Business came to an end during Satyalingam’s Father's tenure. His ships were wracked in the sea, and was reduced to poverty.

Karri Narayana Swamy , his maternal uncle, who owned some ships and was doing Foreign Business took him and his Widowed Mother under his care. Instead of learning lessons, Satyalingam spent his time playing with other truants in the village. Satyalingam came to know that one of his Uncle’s ships were being fitted to set sail to Mullein in Burma. He requested his uncle to let him be a mate in the ship. The sympathetic uncle entrusted him to the care of the captain(Nakhoda) and thus Satyalingam’s life changed from India to Burma. The boy Satyalingam set sail lay anchored at Moulmein, city in Myanmar, a first rate port in Burma at that time. When the ship had reached the port and was at anchor,one night he gave them a slip from the ship and disappeared. The captain and his men searched for the boy for a month, but in vain. The helpless widow, the boy’s mother, died of a broken heart.

Satyalingam's integrity in business dealings soon won for him the respect and confidence of European business magnates in Rangoon. He undertake the business of supplying labour to the mill on contract basis. In two years, he amassed more than one lakh rupees. He used to lend up to Rs. 50,000 to the mill itself.

He purchased two steam launches and employed a number of clerks to assist him in his business.

Satyalingam, the good–for-nothing lad of Coringa became the master of Lakhs and returned to Coringa, married at the instance of his relatives and went back to Rangoon again. But some years later his wife died. He adopted a son known as Sri Subrahmanyam Naicker.

Satyalingam Naicker died in Rangoon on 29 January 1915 when he was about 75 years old. But whose benefactions have given bread and light to large number of people.
