He has represented Tamil Nadu at numerous National Level tournaments and has won hundreds of prizes. He is deaf and that has made a huge difference. He started identifying with the deaf community and founded the Tirupur Deaf Association – 1986.

Mr.Murugasamy started helping out fellow deaf persons. It included getting them jobs, helping hundreds of deaf persons to get legal support at all.
