  • Before invasion of Moghul, Chola King invited Turkish of the Seljuk Turks from Ottoman Empire from the factions of Hanafi school (Known as Rowther in Tamil Nadu) for trade link in 1212 AD. A biggest armada of Turks traders and missionaries settled in Tharangambadi, Nagapattinam, Karaikal, Muthupet, Koothanallur and Podakkudi. Turkish Rowthers were unable to convert Hindus in Tanjore regions since Hindus were very stubborn in their belief, so the Turkish mission and traders settled in this area's with their armada and expanded to a moderate size of Islam community. These new settlements were now added to the Rowther community. Hanafi franctions have a mix of fair and darker complexions because they were more closely connected with the Turkish than others in South, they also follow purdah same as Turks and Iranian compared to Marakkars who just wear sarees. There are some Turkish Anatolian and Turkish Safavid Inscriptions found in wide area from Tanjore to
    Thiruvarur mainly in Koothanallur Big Mosque and Chinnapalli and in many villages. These inscriptions seized by Madras Museum and are available for public viewing. Contact Archeologic Division at Madras Museum, for viewing and further research. Some Turkish inscriptions also stolen from Big Mosque of Koothanallur in 1850.
    There are two factions of Rowthers in Tamil Nadu, Sultan Ala-ud-din Khilji's (Moghul) clan covers majority of Tamil Nadu while Turkish clans remains in Tharangambadi (Nagapattinam), Karaikal, Muthupet, Koothanallur and Podakkudi until now. Both Moghul and Turkish Hanafi expanded with population of almost 1 million Rowthers.

  • Dear All

    Here I want to highlight One more atrocity by Hindu Media itself.

    Groups like Kumudam, Anadavikadan etc have now multiple magazines coming out from their group to cater various sections.

    1.In Kumudam Reporter . Articles will come bashing Hinduism, Kanchi acharyas, Beliefs etc
    2. Kumudam Bahthi will glorify hinduism
    3. Kumudam Jyothidam will critisise magazines writing against Hinduis and cry the greatness of Hinduism.Kumudam family donating 1008 gold coins for Paramacharya.

    All printed by the same machines.

    In Junior Vikadan Agnihotram thathachariyar will write that there is no ram setu and in Sakthi Vikadan Seshadrinada swamigal will write the existance of Ram setu.

    In Junior Vikadan will write all stories about kanchi mutt and Sakthi Vikadan on Kanchi Paramacharyas greatness.

    Simillarly Arasiyal/Trisakthi.

    Waht should we call these magazines run by hindus?

    This is the problem with the present day level of people.

    There are confused between the meaninful system which was existing several centuries ago and the present day to day activities

    Earlier dhoti was the main dress of the males in south india. Now it is mostly incovenient. Will you again call saravanan for these changes?

    When I was reading PS for 7th time, this thought came, if Ponniyin Selvan is to be made as a movie, which actors will suit the characters aptly....
    To begin with...
    1. Sundara Cholan - S V Ranga Rao
    2. Chinna Pazhuvettarayar - Balayya
    3. Vandiya Thevan - Surya
    How about ur choices ?

  • A Kalki fan since ‘Sivakamiyin sabatham’

    Sivakamiyinsabatham as it was serialized in Kalki ( 1944-46) was received by
    the readers with ovation. It was a fullfledged Romantic fiction of Mahendra’s
    love with Sivakami.
    Ayana Sirpi ( sculpturer), father of Sivakami and and Naganandi adikal were also
    fiction created by Kalki. Kalki conceived Naganandi adikal as a Buddha bikku in
    disguise. but a brother of Chalukya, a spy.

    Romance and Kalki’s ideology was clearly delineated. I still remember Kalki
    fantasizing an imaginary conversation about Narasimha telling his audience at
    the Mamallapuram site,that one of the “Pancha Rathas” was provided for a new
    sage who has a great following , who has sacrificed himself for the sake of
    Mankind, implying Jeses.

    Besides Kalki’s enchanting story telling skil, Maniyam, the the most eminent
    Artist of not only his his time ,but even today his work is yet to be surpassed,
    ( I hope Maniyan selvam would not object) He was an inspiration to many art
    enthusiasts. His ornamentations and architectural surroundings, with human
    charecters walking alive as sketched by him brought Kalki’s story to a make
    believe , reality. I was told by those who new him , that he used to travel a
    lot along with Maniyan, to survey the Pallava relics. If I could, I would like
    to browse and catch up more interesting features

  • Dear Jeeva,
    The URL referred below is about the pantings or sketches by an artist ' Blind fold'.  I posted  it to my e-mail circle. But the URL does not open.
    I tried to go back to your Face Book list. But it has disappaeared. I am forwardind a copy the mail from Madam. KathieBrobeck Which explains her keen interest for art. She is an US citizen, She travels very widely and more do in South-india. She has her own website and  own collection  and  albums  suth india architechture. You can refer to her Intrviews eith Times of India and Hindu. I suggest you make her your FB friend,

    Remember to send her a with a copy to me of " The Work of the blind fol artist"
  • I am not sure if we have discussed this in the last 10 years....but what was striking me as I was reading PS yet gain....was the vivid potrayal of dreams by Kalki....
    any favorites folks...
    mine are Vandhiyadevan's dream in Kadambur....and after his return from srilanka

    If I can stop one heart from breaking,I shall not live in vain;
    If I can ease one life the aching,Or cool one pain,
    Or help one fainting robin, Into his nest again,
    I shall not live in vain.
