Bala Guru Kamala Devi Mahal is an original creation of a famous entrepreneur Sri Sv.V. Bala Guru. He is a self-made person man of simple living, high thinking and creativity. He had an excellent family with his wife Kamala Devi. He started his carrier as a worker in a Grain shop. He had a major setback when he lost his loving first Son Master Siva Sundar (aged 10). He picked up courage and hopes from within and started a Dhall manufacturing business using Grinding stones. Through his hard and creative work his business grew and then he established a mechanized Dhall manufacturing unit at Tirumangalam, Madurai District with his two brothers. This was the first unit in Tirumangalam which supplied dhall to this town. He expanded his whole sale Dhall business in and around Madurai region with the reputed name ‘Sinavana’. His family is called by the community as “sinavana”. One unit gave birth to three more dhall manufacturing units owned by his brother.
He vision and dream expanded after the birth of his Son B. Paramesh at the age of 52 and his grandson J. Rajarajan. His spirit was raising up and it actualized itself by ascending peaks of excellence. He accumulated wealth and got good name from his community. His wife including his family (eight daughters) supported him in all aspects of his life. Apart from the manufacture of dhall and sales, he was a talented traditional formed.
He visualized a MahaMandapa at the age of 83. He transcended several obstacles and constructed this mandapa. It took five years (2003-2007) for him to finish the construction.
During this period he was suffering from A Plastic Anemia. Yet he continued construction with determination and achieved success. He had strong mind and determination to continue this project despite his ill health. He did blood transfusion 80 times during this period to restore his health. This could be the gracious period given by God through his family doctor Dr. Chandra Bose. He liked to name the Mahal along with his name and his wife’s name (Kamala Devi). He liked to give meaning and purpose to life. He enjoyed each and every moment of his life with happiness. For him sufferings and obstacles are part of his life and he always more forward. He wanted to leave something in this Earth to be recognized. Hope this Mahal would be a monument left by this beautiful couple Bala Guru and Kamala Devi.
He lost his wife (4th Aug. 2007) before the inauguration the Mahal. The inauguration was done with a simple lighting ceremony and Prayer on April 20th 2008. The driver Mr. Ramachandra service to him at his last days was in laudable. He lost his breath on May13th 2008 with full life at the age of 87. Still he had an insight to build another Mahal adjacent to this. His last dreams would be fulfilled.
Final finishing work was completed by his son Mr. B. Paramesh and he is now managing this Mahal with his family.
