    *Nayagan style* theriliyaeppaa!

    Gave up after spending some time on google which spat out pages that linked to University of Manitoba faculty of Arts and some “Find restaurants” site.

    Neat idea to ask questions with historical references. Don’t keep us waiting for long. illaatti kanna pinna nu guess panna vaendiyirukkum!

    The bridge is named after T. V. Kalyanasundara Mudaliar(Thiru Vi.Ka).He was involved in the labour movement.
    I guess thats the connection you are looking for.

    Bharat – I try to get non googlable questions :-)

    Arvind is right. The bridge is named after Thiru. Vi. Kalyanasundaram, who was the one of the founders of the first Labour Union in India (the B&C Mill Labour Union in 1918)
