Abstract: Charles Tilly (2004) explained that social movements could make constant campaigns for and by people to reach their proper needs and rights. People may forget the rights they enjoy now are fruits of social movements. The rights are not directly and willingly given to the people but the influence of social movements causes them to reach every ordinary men and women. If there is slavery in the society that one suppress the other in the name of caste, money, status, etc then we cannot claim there is sustainable development. The riches, the advancements, the merits of any systems remind everyone that there are social movements which could render selfless services towards this attainment. Kanyakumari is one among the districts of Tamilnadu, where the contribution of social movements towards the development is high that this district stands first in education. Not only in education but also in every walks of life the leaders and members of various social movements set standards and worked for it continuously. This paper analyses how far the social traits of leaders and members of today’s social movements in Kanyakumari district make impact for the sustainable development in the district. It is thus witnessed that the social life in the district is empowered by the social movements and even the ordinary fishermen, masons, farmers and gardeners could get a decent life.
