    In 1890, who among the following started "Indian Social Reformer"?

    A)  Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar

    B)  K. Viresalingam

    C)  K. Natarajan

But it shared with its eastern counterpart a willingness to create and catalyse controversy. On the burning social issues of the day (such as the Age of Consent Bill) it pressed the wavering nationalist to take a progressive stance. One of its early campaigns, oddly enough, was inspired by developments on the cricket field.
