Kumaresan, better known as Napoleon, was born on 2nd December, 1963—the fifth of six children. Hailing from a middle class family, Napoleon was well acquainted with hardship and hard work from a very young age. His father, an agriculturist, worked hard on his farm while his mother busied herself with bringing up 6 children.

The humanitarianism embodied by the party struck a chord in the idealistic youngster and he decided to join the party under the wing of his uncle, K.N. Nehru, a great leader and the Public Welfare Minister at that time.
Politics gave Napoleon ample scope to develop his leadership skills and extend help to the masses. Identifying himself with the common man, Napoleon was soon hailed as a people’s leader.
