NEW DELHI: Tarun Vijay, President of Students and Youth for Thiruvalluvar and former MP, presented the magnificent portrait of Rajendra Chola, the great icon of India's maritime power and naval empire to Union defence minister Nirmala Sitaraman at her south block office on Wednesday.



Emperor Rajendra Chola is considered to be one of the greatest rulers and military generals of India. He succeeded his father Rajaraja Chola I in 1014 CE. During his reign, he extended the influence of the Chola empire to the banks of the river Ganga in north India and across the Indian ocean to the west, making the Chola Empire one of the most powerful empires of India.






It is noteworthy that Rajendra Chola's millennium was celebrated by the Indian navy and govt of India issued a postal stamp dedicated to him.



The portrait presented to the Sitharaman shows the naval ships used in Chola period to establish an invincible maritime empire.



"We must not forget the great military powers that helped build India," Tarun Vijay said. He lamented that the southern India's military powers have been long neglected. It is only in Modi era that the southern glory and powers have been honoured and respected more than ever.
