He was born in Kolattupettai near Thiruvottiyur in Tamil Nadu in 1876. He was an eminent scholar but because of his parents objection he couldnt make music as his career. He became disciple of Pattanam Subrahmania iyyer. He became famous in Mysore palace also and got the title Tiger from there. Though his voice was not that good, he was proficient in performing certain nuances (bhrugas, gamakas and sangathis). He was appointed as the first principal when the college for music teachers was opened in Chennai.
I couldn\\\'t find any obvious connection between Thyagaraja swami and Tiger, except the fact that there is a Thyagarajar temple in Sri Varadachari\\\'s birth place and the fact that \\\'Nidu Charanamule\\\' (Simhendramadyamam) under the signature of Tyagaraja is actually a composition of the \\\'Three musketeers of Kaladipet\\\', the Tiger Brothers (Varadachari got two brothers).
