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 Kakinadaabout 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
Mulleinin 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 Indiato 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.
