As a keen lover of pigeons, I started my pigeon sports at the age of 17. In the year 1974 at the age of 18, I had become the Club Member of Madras Homing Pigeon Association and became the Champion by 1979. I have laid the foundation of New Madras Racing Pigeon Association at St. Thomas Mount in the year 1984 with the strong support and Co-operation extended by Mr.P.Casey and other inmates of the pigeon association.
We started South Indian Racing Pigeon Society in the year 2009 mainly to unite all the pigeon fanciers under a single banner and to further improve the sport of pigeon racing in India.
