I wish I could reply ‘Why are you so loud and talkative’ to everyone who asks me ‘Why are you so quiet’, but it’s considered rude.

Thumbaippatti village of Madurai once had a fresh water pond “Oorani”. Only savarna people are allowed to enjoy water from this pond. So called lowborns had to adjust with the mucky water outside of the village. But one boy was not inclined to do the adjustment. One day he walk upright through savarna street and show his rage by drinking water from Oorani. Though they crucified him, this ruction handover the flame into nearby areas and created new dawn to the oppressed people. This boy was then renowned as a character of non-controversial honest staright-forward politics. His name is Kakkan.
Hunger for dalit freedom forge him to work for Harijana Seva Sangham from school days itself. Kakkan along with A Vaidhyanatha Iyer led dalits to enter inside Madurai Meenakshiamman temple in 1939 was a revolutionary event. Kakkan joined Indian National Congress at the time of National movement. He had met Gandhi during his visit to Madurai and accompanied in his travel. Kakkan was impressed by Gandhiyan ideologies and thereafter he identified himself as Gandhiyan. British arrested him for participating in the Quit India movement and beaten up in the lockup for five full days.
He was dying and taken to hospital in a mule charabanc along with dead bodies, fortunately succeeded death by margin of hair. But sooner he was send to Alipura central jail in Andra. Whip and hunger tested him. Two years of severe imprisonment straw his pulp.
He was elected from Madurai during the first general election of Independent India. Being the second self of Kamarajar, Kakkan becomes the precident of Tamilnadu congress committee after 1957 election. Kakkan becomes the first person from an oppressed community to become a precident in the history of congress. He was taken the charge of the police, electricity, welfare of sheduled caste and sheduled tribes, food and consumer affairs, Irrigation, alcohol prohibition and animal husbandry ministries. He build Mettur and Vaigai reservoirs. He played vital role in executing Kamarajar’s revolutionary midday meal scheme. He opened more than hundred schools especially in under developed villages. He started Tamilnadu Agricultural university. He economically protected the agricultural societies of Tamilnadu. He was the first to give structure to Tamiladu vigilance and many more.
Success stories apart, after the defeat in 1967 election Kakkan had to vaccate from govt guest house and had to walk from streets to streets for a rented house. There was no surprice that he only posses two pair of khadar and a cheppal to his name since he gave all his salary to various welfare funds. He always refused to use ministerial luxuries for unofficial activities including party meetings. One day he was traveling through local bus to attend congress public meeting and he was the transport minister then. Unfortunately he didn’t had enough money to take the ticket. Even the bus conductor and passengers requested him to stay in the bus, but he travelled some distance corresponding to the money he paid and walked the rest!
After the death of Kamarajar, Kakkan was retired from active politics. Later he was diagnosed with arthritis and admitted in Madurai govt hospital. It was during that time MGR visited the hospital to seek the welfare of Madurai Muthu (Ex mayor) had also look over the fecilities in local ward. MGR was shocked to see Kakkan lying on naked floor. He immediately ordered doctors to take him to special ward and gave money for the treatment. But Kakkan kindly refused the money with a smile. It of no doubt that MGR who passed the bill for free transportation and free medical aid for ex ministers had seen Kakkan in his mind.
In 1983 december 23rd Kakkan passed away. In lot of ways I feel so guilty for not cherishing the valued contribution of Kakkan. This generation barely know his name. No one built memorial for him. Nither showered flowers on him nor recited poems…

We are somewhat happier than our ancestors, the increase in our well-being is far less than we might have expected. In the Stone Age, the average human had at his or her disposal about 4,000 calories of energy per day. This included not only food, but also the energy invested in preparing tools, clothing, art and campfires. Today Americans use on average 228,000 calories of energy per person per day, to feed not only their stomachs but also their cars, computers, refrigerators and televisions. The average American thus uses sixty times more energy than the average Stone Age hunter-gatherer. Is the average American sixty times happier?
In ancient agricultural societies human violence caused about 15 per cent of all deaths, during the twentieth century violence caused only 5 per cent of deaths, and in the early twenty-first century it is responsible for about 1 per cent of global mortality. In 2012 about 56 million people died throughout the world; 620,000 of them died due to human violence (war killed 120,000 people, and crime killed another 500,000). In contrast, 800,000 committed suicide, and 1.5 million died of diabetes. Sugar is now more dangerous than gunpowder! So are we still happy?
The glass ceiling of happiness is held in place by two stout pillars, one psychological, the other biological. On the psychological level, happiness depends on expectations rather than objective conditions. We don’t become satisfied by leading a peaceful and prosperous existence. Rather, we become satisfied when reality matches our expectations. The bad news is that as conditions improve, expectations balloon. Dramatic improvements in conditions, as humankind has experienced in recent decades, translate into greater expectations rather than greater contentment. If we don’t do something about this, our future achievements too might leave us as dissatisfied as ever.
On the biological level, both our expectations and our happiness are determined by our biochemistry, rather than by our economic, social or political situation. We never react to events in outside world, but only to sensations in our own bodies.
You don’t have to score the winning goal in the World Cup Final to feel such sensations. If you receive an unexpected promotion at work, and start jumping for joy, you are reacting to the same kind of sensations. The deeper parts of your mind know nothing about football or about jobs. They know only sensations. If you get a promotion, but for some reason don’t feel any pleasant sensations – you will not feel satisfied. The opposite is also true. If you have just been fired (or lost a decisive football match), but you are experiencing very pleasant sensations (perhaps because you popped some pill), you might still feel on top of the world.
The bad news is that pleasant sensations quickly subside and sooner or later turn into unpleasant ones. Even scoring the winning goal in the World Cup Final doesn’t guarantee lifelong bliss. In fact, it might all be downhill from there. Similarly, if last year I received an unexpected promotion at work, I might still be occupying that new position, but the very pleasant sensations I experienced on hearing the news disappeared within hours. If I want to feel those wonderful sensations again, I must get another promotion. And another. And if I don’t get a promotion, I might end up far more bitter and angry than if I had remained a humble pawn.
This is all the fault of evolution. For countless generations our biochemical system adapted to increasing our chances of survival and reproduction, not our happiness. The biochemical system rewards actions conducive to survival and reproduction with pleasant sensations. But these are only an ephemeral sales gimmick. We struggle to get food and mates in order to avoid unpleasant sensations of hunger and to enjoy pleasing tastes and blissful orgasms. But nice tastes and blissful orgasms don’t last very long, and if we want to feel them again we have to go out looking for more food and mates.
The biochemical pursuit of happiness is also the number one couse of crime in the world. People drink alcohol to forget, they smoke pot to feel peaceful, they take cocaine and methamphetamines to be sharp and confident, whereas Ecstasy provides ecstatic sensations and LSD sends you to meet Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds. What some people hope to get by studying, working or raising a family, others try to obtain far more easily through the right dosage of molecules. This is an existential threat to the social and economic order, which is why countries wage a stubborn, bloody and hopeless war on biochemical crime.
If I identify happiness with fleeting pleasant sensations, and crave to experience more and more of them, I have no choice but to pursue them constantly. When I finally get them, they quickly disappear, and because the mere memory of past pleasures will not satisfy me, I have to start all over again. Even if I continue this pursuit for decades, it will never bring me any lasting achievement; on the contrary, the more I crave these pleasant sensations, the more stressed and dissatisfied I will become. To attain real happiness, humans need to slow down the pursuit of pleasant sensations, not accelerate it.
At present, humankind has far greater interest in the biochemical solution. No matter what monks in their Himalayan caves or philosophers in their ivory towers say, for the capitalist juggernaut, happiness is pleasure. Period. With each passing year our tolerance for unpleasant sensations decreases, and our craving for pleasant sensations increases. Both scientific research and economic activity are geared to that end, each year producing better painkillers, new ice-cream flavours, more comfortable mattresses, and more addictive games for our smartphones, so that we will not suffer a single boring moment while waiting for the bus.

Life in it’s evolutionary perspective is an incomplete measure of success. It judges everything by the criteria of survival and reproduction, with no regard for individual suffering and happiness. Like humans, domesticated chickens and cattle may well be an evolutionary success story, but they are also among the most miserable creatures that ever lived. The domestication of animals was founded on a series of brutal practices that only became crueller with the passing of the centuries.
The natural lifespan of wild chickens is about seven to twelve years, and of cattle about twenty to twenty-five years. In the wild, most chickens and cattle died long before that, but they still had a fair chance of living for a respectable number of years. In contrast, the vast majority of domesticated chickens and cattle are slaughtered at the age of between a few weeks and a few months, because this has always been the optimal slaughtering age from an economic perspective.
Egg-laying hens, dairy cows and draught animals are sometimes allowed to live for many years. But the price is subjugation to a way of
life completely alien to their urges and desires. It’s reasonable to assume,
for example, that bulls prefer to spend their days wandering over open prairies in the company of other bulls and cows rather than pulling carts
and ploughshares under the yoke of a whip-wielding ape. In order to turn bulls, horses, donkeys and camels into obedient draught animals, their natural instincts and social ties had to be broken, their aggression and sexuality contained, and their freedom of movement curtailed. Farmers developed techniques such as locking animals inside pens and cages, bridling them in harnesses and leashes, training them with whips and cattle prods, and mutilating them.
Cows, goats and sheep produce milk only after giving birth to calves, kids and lambs, and only as long as the youngsters are suckling. To continue a supply of animal milk, a farmer needs to have calves, kids or lambs for suckling, but must prevent them from monopolising the milk. One common method throughout history was to simply slaughter the calves and kids shortly after birth, milk the mother for all she was worth, and then get her pregnant again. This is still a very widespread technique. In many modern dairy farms a milk cow usually lives for about five years before being slaughtered. During these five years she is almost constantly pregnant, and is fertilised within 60 to 120 days after giving birth in order to preserve maximum milk production. Her calves are separated from her shortly after birth. The females are reared to become the next generation of dairy cows, whereas the males are handed over to the care of the meat industry.
A modern calf in an industrial meat farm. Immediately after birth the calf is separated from its mother and locked inside a tiny cage not much bigger than the calf’s own body. There the calf spends its entire life – about four months on average. It never leaves its cage, nor is it allowed to play with other calves or even walk – all so that its muscles will not grow strong. Soft muscles mean a soft and juicy steak. The first time the calf has a chance to walk, stretch its muscles and touch other calves is on its way to the slaughterhouse. In evolutionary terms, cattle represent one of the most successful animal species ever to exist. At the same time, they are some of the most miserable animals on
Today these animals are often mass-produced in factory-like facilities, their bodies shaped in accordance with industrial needs. They pass their entire lives as cogs in a giant production line, and the length and quality of their existence is determined by the profits and losses of business corporations. Even when the industry takes care to keep them alive, reasonably healthy and well fed, it has no intrinsic interest in the animals social and psychological needs.
They feel strong urges to scout their environment, forage and peck around, determine social hierarchies, build nests and groom themselves. But the egg industry often locks the hens inside tiny coops, and it is not uncommon for it to squeeze four hens to a cage, each given a floor space of about twenty-five by twenty-two centimetres. The hens receive sufficient food, but they are unable to claim a territory, build a nest or engage in other natural activities. Indeed, the cage is so small that hens are often unable even to flap their wings or stand fully erect. Male chicks and imperfect female chicks are picked off the conveyor belt and are then asphyxiated in gas chambers,
dropped into automatic shredders, or simply thrown into the rubbish, where they are crushed to death. Hundreds of millions of chicks die each year in such hatcheries.
Pigs are among the most intelligent and inquisitive of mammals, second perhaps only to the great apes. Yet industrialised pig farms routinely confine nursing sows inside such small crates that they are literally unable to turn around (not to mention walk or forage). The sows are kept in these crates day and night for four weeks after giving birth. Their offspring are then taken away to be fattened up and the sows are
impregnated with the next litter of piglets.
They diary cows live almost all their allotted years inside a small enclosure; standing, sitting and sleeping in their own urine and
excrement. They receive their measure of food, hormones and
medications from one set of machines, and get milked every few hours by another set of machines. The cow in the middle is treated as little
more than a mouth that takes in raw materials and an udder that produces a commodity. Treating living creatures possessing complex emotional worlds as if they were machines is likely to cause them not
only physical discomfort, but also much social stress and psychological
Just as the Atlantic slave trade did not stem from hatred towards Africans, so the modern animal industry is not motivated by animosity. Again, it is fuelled by indifference. Most people who produce and consume eggs, milk and meat rarely stop to think about the fate of the chickens, cows or pigs whose flesh and emissions they are eating. Those who do think often argue that such animals are really little different from machines, devoid of sensations and emotions, incapable of suffering. Ironically, the same scientific disciplines which shape our milk machines and egg machines have lately demonstrated beyond reasonable doubt that mammals and birds have a complex sensory and emotional make-up. The conclusion was inescapable: animals must have psychological needs and desires that go beyond their material requirements, and if these are not fulfilled, they will suffer greatly!
Around the time that Homo sapiens was elevated to divine status by humanist religions, farm animals stopped being viewed as “life” that could feel pain and distress, and instead came to be treated as machine.

If you were an eighteen year-old youth in a small village 5,000 years ago you’d probably think you were good-looking because there were only fifty other men in your village and most of them were either old, scarred and wrinkled, or still little kids. But if you are a teenager today you are a lot more likely to feel inadequate. Even if the other guys at school are an ugly lot, you don’t measure yourself against them but against the movie stars, athletes and supermodels you see all day on television, Facebook and giant billboards.
What is happiness for you?
Winning a lottery? Buying new house? A promotion? True love?
Let me clarify this for you, Nobody was ever made happy by winning the lottery, buying a house, getting a promotion or even finding true love. People are made happy by one thing and one thing only – pleasant sensations in their bodies. The complex system of nerves, neurons, synapses and various biochemical substances such as serotonin, dopamine and oxytocin!
A person who just won the lottery or found new love and jumps from joy is
not really reacting to the money or the lover. She is reacting to various
hormones coursing through her bloodstream, and to the storm of electric signals flashing between different parts of her brain.
Evolution has moulded us to be neither too miserable nor too happy. It enables us to enjoy a momentary rush of pleasant sensations,but these never last for ever. Sooner or later they subside and give place to unpleasant sensations.
For example, evolution provided pleasant feelings as rewards to males
who spread their genes by having sex with fertile females. If sex were not accompanied by such pleasure, few males would bother. At the same
time, evolution made sure that these pleasant feelings quickly subsided. If orgasms were to last for ever, the very happy males would die of hunger for lack of interest in food, and would not take the trouble to look for additional fertile females.
Think for a moment of your family and friends. You know some
people who remain relatively joyful, no matter what befalls them. And
then there are those who are always disgruntled, no matter what gifts
the world lays at their feet. We tend to believe that if we could just change our workplace, get married, finish writing that novel, buy a new
car or repay the mortgage, we would be on top of the world. Yet when
we get what we desire we don’t seem to be any happier. Buying cars and
writing novels do not change our biochemistry. They can startle it for a
fleeting moment, but it is soon back to its set point.
Nothing captures the biological argument better than the famous New
Age slogan: ‘Happiness Begins Within.’ Money, social status, plastic
surgery, beautiful houses, powerful positions – none of these will bring
you happiness. Lasting happiness comes only from serotonin, dopamine
That’s one option. Another is that the findings demonstrate that happiness is not the surplus of pleasant over unpleasant moments. Rather, happiness consists in seeing one’s life in its entirety as meaningful and worthwhile.
Hence any meaning that people ascribe to their lives is just a “delusion”. The scientist who says her life is meaningful because she increases the store of human knowledge, the soldier who declares that his life is meaningful because he fights to defend his homeland, and the entrepreneur who finds meaning in
building a new company are no less delusional than their medieval counterparts who found meaning in reading scriptures, going on a
crusade or building a new cathedral.
So perhaps happiness is synchronising one’s personal delusions of meaning with the prevailing collective delusions. As long as my personal narrative is in line with the narratives of the people around me, I can convince myself that my life is meaningful, and find happiness in that conviction.
So I have two alternate happinesses with me.
One. If happiness is based on feeling pleasant sensations, then in order to be happier we need to re-engineer our biochemical system.
Two. If happiness is based on feeling that life is meaningful, then in order to be happier we need to delude ourselves more effectively.
This is quite a depressing conclusion. So let me conclude again. Happiness is no more than fleeting vibrations, changing every moment, like the ocean waves. If five minutes ago I felt joyful and purposeful, now these feelings are gone, and I might well feel sad and dejected. So if I want to experience pleasant feelings, I have to constantly chase them, while driving away the unpleasant feelings. Even if I succeed, I immediately have to start all over again, without ever getting any lasting reward for my troubles.
So why so struggle to achieve that disappears as soon as it arises??

“Politicians are all liars” is something what I’m suffering from my childhood. Apart from a twelve mark Mahathma Gandhi and Salt Sathyagraha in textbook, no one talk to me about good politicians. Why are we so forgetful??
Put aside the emotional hype their politics bringing in, we need to go back to what is important. We need to celebrate them for being morally upright and gentle in speech.
With hundreds of thousands of men away fighting during the second world war, labour shortages became acute and British were in need of Indian manpower. Mahatma Gandhi asked Indians to not cooperate with the English men. So Britain promote their biased war policies and British side of world war 2. They set up a British friendly drama in a local school of Tirunelveli. Nallakannu, the school boy entered in to the scene and protested against British imperialism with a earth breaking battle cry. The story of tozhar Nallakannu begins here.
As a adherent of Gandhi, he joined Tirunelveli Hindu college for higher studies, where he was brutally beaten by British sepoys and get dismissed from college for initiating “Vellayane Veliyeru” movement. The sixteen year old then understand that Gandhiism won’t give him the liberation he wanted; while Jeeva’s communism seemed to be ultimate adobe of just and best supported his revolutionary credos. This communism made him to work for suppressed people, had stayed with them, had food with them and taught them how to fight for their rights.
Independent India banned communism in 1948 in the name of revolutionary insurrections across the country. The leaders were hunted one after the other. Nallakannu went underground, holding his party in one hand. Nallakannu continue to speak communism to his people through red posters and rude wall drawings.
On 1949 Dec 30, cops arrested him from Puliankulam. Police boomed hundred questions one after the other. Patrol boots tasted his flesh, lathis soaked in blood. Nallakannu utter nothing. Provoked by this, an officer lit a cigar and started to burn his rugged brave mustache bristle by bristle and fumed Nallakannu’s lips. But he remain unshaked.
Finally he was given a life sentence of 14 years upon anti government activities. Imprisonment fueled socialist within him in the company of left books. Quoting his “Meesayai pudungiya pothilum..”, he challenged bourgeois – government monarchy by throwing myre of his mustache at it. There after he removed his mustache as a mark of his protest.
Released from jail, Nallakannu continue to revolt for temple entry, walking through public roads, land ownership and most importantly he restrained casteist fanatics of southern Tamilnadu. He is a great environmentalist, put an end to the sand mafia in Tamirabharani and Kaveri rivers through a 21 day hunger strike. In 1985 he single handedly abolished the horse race court plan in Coutralam water falls. His protest against CAA along with youngsters at the age of 94 was remarkable. He devoted his life for the unreserved and their fight backs.
This man who show up in old mucky getups, who gave all the money in his pocket to party and to farmer’s associations, who sleep in party office and bus stands, who do politics for poor strays refugees was given failure failure and failure only by his fellow people in every general elections.
In 2019, Nallakannu was asked to vacate the house he was living in and now reside with his daughter in a rented house. Among the corrupted politicians taking bribe and live with all luxury, Tamil people and communist party was failed to celebrate tozhar Nallakannu.

Why should we become addicted to another person?
Every addiction arises from an unconscious refusal to face and move through your own pain. Every addiction starts with pain and ends with pain. Whatever the substance you are addicted to – alcohol, food, drugs, or a person – you are using something or somebody to cover up your pain. That is why, after the initial euphoria has passed, there is so much unhappiness, so much pain in intimate relationships. They do not cause pain and unhappiness. They
bring out the pain and unhappiness that is already in you. Every addiction does that. Every addiction reaches a point where it does not work for you anymore, and then you feel the pain more intensely than ever.
On the positive side, you are “ln Love” with your partner. This is at first a deeply satisfying state. You feel intensely alive. Your existence has suddenly become meaningful
because someone needs you, wants you, and makes you feel special, and you do the same for him or her. When you are together, you feel whole. This feeling can become so intense that the rest of the world fades into insignificance.
However, you may also have noticed that there is a neediness and a clinging quality to that intensity. You become addicted to the other person. He or she acts on you like a drug. You are on a high when the drug is available, but even the possibility or the thought that he or she might no longer be there for you can lead to jealousy, possessiveness, blaming and accusing in the fear of loss. If the other person does leave you, this can give rise to the most intense hostility or the most profound grief and despair. In an instant, loving tenderness can turn into a savage attack or dreadful grief.
Where is the love now? Can love change into its opposite in an instant? Was it love in the first place, or just an addictive grasping and clinging
The reason why the romantic love relationship is such an intense and universally sought-after experience is that it seems to offer liberation from a deep-seated state of fear, need, lack, and incompleteness that is part of the human condition in its unredeemed and unenlightened state. There is a physical as well as a psychological dimension to this state.
On the physical level, you are obviously not whole, nor will you ever be: You are either a man or a woman, which is to say, one-half of the whole. On this level, the longing for wholeness manifests as male female attraction, man’s need for a woman, woman’s need for a man. It is an almost irresistible urge for union with the opposite energy polarity. The root of this physical urge is a spiritual one: the longing for an end to duality, a return to the state of wholeness. Sexual union is the closest you can get to this state on the physical level. This is why it is the most deeply satisfying experience the physical realm can offer.
But sexual union is no more than a fleeting glimpse of wholeness, an instant of bliss. As long as it is unconsciously sought as a means of salvation, you are seeking the end of
duality on the level of form, where it cannot be found. You are given a tantalizing glimpse of heaven, but you are not allowed to dwell there, and find yourself again in a separate
On the psychological level, the sense of lack and incompleteness is, if anything, even greater than on the
physical level. As long as you are identified with the mind, you have an externally derived sense of self. That is to say, you get your sense of who you are from things that ultimately have nothing to do with who you are: your social role, possessions, external appearance, successes and failures, belief systems, and so on. This false, mind-made self, the ego, feels vulnerable, insecure, and is always seeking new things to identify with to give it a feeling that it exists. But nothing is ever enough to give it lasting fulfillment. Its fear remains; its sense of lack and neediness remains.
But then that special relationship comes along. It seems to be the answer to all the ego’s problems and to meet all its needs. At least this is how it appears at first. All the other
things that you derived your sense of self from before, now become relatively insignificant.
You now have a single focal point that replaces them all, gives meaning to your life, and through which you define your identity: the person you are “In Love” with. You are no longer a disconnected fragment in an uncaring universe, or so it seems. Your world now has a center: the loved one.
The fact that the center is outside you and that, therefore, you still have an externally derived sense of self does not seem to matter at first. What matters is that the underlying feelings of incompleteness, of fear, lack and unfulfillment so characteristic of the egoic state are no longer there or are they? Have they dissolved, or do they continue to exist underneath the happy surface reality?
If in your relationships you experience both “love” and the opposite of love. Then it is likely that you are confusing ego attachment and addictive clinging with love. You cannot love your partner one moment and attack him or her the next. True love has no opposite. If your “love” has an opposite, then it is not love but a strong ego-need for a more complete and deeper sense of self, a need that the other person temporarily meets. It is the ego’s substitute for salvation, and for a short time it almost does feel like salvation.
You are a human mind again, pretending to be a human being, interacting with another mind, playing Love..

“O God my enemy is superior, has advanced knowledge, has advanced cultivation method, has advance architecture, I can not fight and win them completely. So please help us to defeat them”
This was one of the hymns in Rigveda, a call on god to defeat the advanced civilization. This battle for supremacy went for centuries. Slowly Jewish Brahmins triumphed the Tamils and drive them to the south of the Vindhyas.
The Jews coming to Tamil land as traders always wished to have a control over this highly prosperous soil. But that was not easy even for the cunning Jews that the social structure of Tamil society was so strong, build in gurukulam by great preachers (Aaseevaga Siddhars). All Tamil rulers were inspired of Aaseevagam and they are scientifically awakened by gurukula education. So obviously Jews hate gurukulam and Aseevagam. Thus Jews master planned to loot the basics of Aasevagam and form a new religion that can protect their masked Jewish interests and hammer Aaseevagam away.
Jews did two things. Firstly, they do not mingle with the local people, there by keep themselves hidden to Tamil people. Secondly, Although they’re not mingled, they closely observed every aspects of Tamil culture and pursue advanced knowledge through Aaseevaga siddhars. The Transformation period was long, the process continued for centuries and finally Jews emerged as a alternate community for Aaseevagam. During this metamorphosis process, Jews change their Jewish traits and encultured with monarch pleasing attributes to please the ruling class. Their actions nearly copied the impressions of Aasevaga siddhars and titled themselves as “Brahmins”. Sooner or later they ended up being the Looted Poonoolassossiates of rulers; but looking for a opportunity to terrorise the monarchy at the same time.
Now I will tell you how the epic Brahmins looted Aaseevaga concept.
One who complete eighteen stages of gurukula education is known as periya amanar.
Periya amanar -> Peraamanar -> Pramanar -> Brahmanar
Even though the early Jews pursue skills through Siddhars, they completely stop this once they become Brahmin titled themselves. That is Jews then started to misuse the title of ‘Periya amanar / Brahmanar’ without practicing gurukula education. Since Aaseevagam consider white as a colour of wisdom, Jews make it favourable for them by claiming that they are wisdom people by birth. Though people might not accepted this initially, Jewish Brahmins repeat the lie wherever they go and it is fabricated into a faithful thing by the time under favourable rulers.
We have discussed about the poonool wearing custom of Tamil technocrats in the previous chapter. Poonool is awarded by Aaseevaga siddhars to one who complete eighteen stages of gurukula education (Periya amanar). The guidelines followed by them are aasaaram.
Jews also looted the poonool culture from aasevagam along with the Brahmanar title and claimed that they’re chosen people of god. Thus the sacred poonool of Tamils become Brahmin birth right. Thus they fabricated a new custom of upanayam to award poonool to every Brahmin boy who attains age of thirteen. Afterwards the Brahmin boy perform aasaram rituals.
With their cunning moves one after the other, the local rulers become puppets of Brahmins who openly supported newly born Jewish-Brahmin community.
Jews did not come here with any proper language, they should have spoken a minor dialect with no script. At the same time, Tamil (Tamili) was found to be a highly developed language which is spoken throughout from Baluchistan to Lanka. Over a period of centuries Jewish dialect appropriated many Tamil words, altered a bit phonetically and made it as Sanskrit.
The oral language of Sanskrit is derived from Tamili with the influence of Jewish words. But still Sanskrit can not able to develop any script to write it down. They continue to write Sanskrit in Tamili script till 4th century CE. Through years of evolution, over thousands of scholars, it is refined and upgraded to Devanagari script in north India by 4th century CE and Grantham script in south India by 5th century CE.
Dr. Vincent Smith (Irish Indologist) in his book on “The Early Indian History“, refers to the contribution of Tamil, especially words borrowed by Sanskrit. Tamil had developed advanced grammar, as proved by the great grammar treatise ‘Tholkappiam’. Later, Panini’s Sanskrit grammar, has borrowed heavily from ‘Tholokappiam’ including ‘Sandhi rules’ of sentence construction.
He indicate that the very word ‘Sanskrit’ appeared much later and means ‘refined script’. The word is derived from two Tamil words ‘semmai‘ meaning ‘refined’ and ‘kirukku’ meaning ‘scribble’. Most of the important Sanskrit words have their etymological roots clearly linked to Tamil. All spiritual words like veda, puja, guru, vigyan, atma, homkund etc are all Tamil words slightly altered phonetically and so ,it sounds different. That is, they are Tamil words which written in devanagari script (Sanskrit script) that only describe the sound with out any dictionary meaning.
For example, let us consider the Sanskrit word puja and Tamil word poosei. The Tamil word is again split into poo (flower) and sei (perform). This point to Tamil ritual of worshiping by showering flowers. Where as in Sanskrit, puja is a single word means ‘to worship’ and this inference has no basis. I can come up with a number of similar words which can substantiate that Sanskrit etymology is uncertain and untenable.
Since Sanskrit is not a naturally evolved language, It was never a language for mass. It is mainly used by Jewish Brahmins as a court language and widely used only for vedic rituals.
We must understand that vedas are vital part of Tamil gurukula education which is passed from generations to generations through orally.
Vedam means science in Tamil. Four Sanskritised vedas ( Rig, Yajur, Sama, Atharva ) are four major disciplines of science. It was preached by Shiva in gurukulam.
Vurukk means smelting in Tamil. Vurukk vedam explain scientific and technological information on smelting. It is also interesting to know that, the Sanskrit rig veda considered for praising gods has reference to many metals, their availability, refining process and products made out of them etc. For example, Rig veda 8.26.18 : hiranyavartanih – gold metallurgy
Yasur means southern king in Tamil. Yasur vedam considered as veda of rituals, deals with miscellaneous science including Yoga, Siddha vaidtam, Political science, military science, architecture etc other than the one explained by other three vedas.
Yamam or samam denotes a midnight period which is the best time for astronomers to observe celestial bodies. Sama veda define the science of astronomy. For example, sama veda 1.9.1 : Udgitha – space
Atharvanam means vibration in Tamil. Atharvana vedam is the study of effect of waves or vibrations on human body in both physical and emotional levels. Shiva might do his research based on the sounds of percussion instruments such as udukkai, parai which is adorned to him in later period.
Hence four Vedas are actually four sciences in corroborating with relevant historical and traditional information about Shiva. Although they’re science, Sanskrit vedas are recited with more godic interest and believed to be evolved from four faces of Brahma.
Jewish Brahmins named this early Tamil siddhars as Suthirar. Because Tamil aaseevagam has set up formulas (suthiram) for every science or vedams. Meanwhile Brahmins understood all formulas of aaseevagam, Tamils were relegated to lowest position of the society by diabolic ways and suthirar changed to sudra meaning low class.
Tamils do not believe in any deities, instead they only followed their ancestors out of respect. People follow great siddhars of their clan which includes Shiva (Adinathar), Murugan (Seyon), Krishna (Mayon), Vishnu (Parsuvanathar), Indran (Vendon), Ravanan, Ayyanar/Ayyappan, Agathiyar, Valluvar etc and their other ancestors through conceptual Vinayaka (Pillayar). They worshiped these siddhars in the name of munnor vazhipadu (Ancestral worship).
Where as Jews worshiped modified Abram in the form of Brahma. But the concept of Brahma was inadequate to promote and please the rulers. Thus Jewish Brahmins master planned to steal important Tamil ancestors and recreate them with a god image to make use of their eminent glory. At the same time they affixed tons of fancy sensual tales to these new born Brahmin gods as a part of their hidden agenda.
Indiran is mentioned as siddhar who is a specialist of warfare according to sangam literature. He is praised as withdrawer of five senses with his strict yogic life. He is named as Kannayiram (possessor of thousand eyes) to dignify his vigilance. Indran was the first Tamil god to get sacred position in vedic literature. Rigveda praises Indran as a great warrior who won ninety six towns by killing fifty thousand black dasars and gift their mother tongue to Brahmins. Even though rig veda glorifies Indiran on their suitable way, same people project Indran as a womaniser with many erotic purana stories. Indiran get excited by the beauty of Agalikai (wife of Gautama maharshi) wanted to unite with her. Indiran change himself into Gautama maharshi and unite with Agalikai. Provoked by this, Gautama maharshi cursed as possessor thousand vagina. Well, that is how they manipulate Tamil gods.
They falsify Adinathar or Shiva from Yajur veda itself. They toxify ‘Shivalingam’ with a story. While maharishi Brihu (Brahma’s son) pay a visit to Kailasam, Shiva and Parvathy, both were mated in love with out knowing his arrival. Thus, angry Brihu cursed Shiva that people will only worship him upon this penetrative penis position. Another story says that, the aroused Shiva continuously raped muni patnies (wives of Brahmin maharishis) and hence angry Maharishis cursed Shiva that his organ will slashed to earth. But Parvathy resisted it by holding it on her vulva. There were hundreds of similar sick stories which I can not able to explain!
Brahmins distinguish Murugan as the son of Shiva. The renamed him as Karthikeya in skanda puranam. According to them, while Agni (fire god) pay a visit to Kailasam, Shiva and Parvathy, mating in love get disturbed and Shiva’s ejaculation fall on the earth. Angry Shiva command Agni to swallow it. Agni obey the order and later spit it on Gange river. Thus Karthikeya is born to Ganga devi and raised by Karthikai star. The purpose of his birth was to kill Surapadma and Tarakasura, another strategy to toxify aaseevaga siddhars by framing imaginary story of killing them by Brahmin hero gods.
Bhramins devote Vishnu along with his ten avatharams (incarnation) by proposing that the ten principal avathars were raised for the welfare of mankind. But they were truly ten hoaxes created only for the welfare of Jewish Brahmins. Matsya avatar to establish manusmrithi, Kurma avatar form mohini story with multiple benifits, Varaha avatar and Narasimha avatar to frame Asura as a hazard to mankind, again Vamana avatar to ruin generosity of Mahabali, Parasurama avatar to fix Kshatriya dharma as a protector of Brahmins, Rama avatar to end the legacy of Ravanan, Krishna avatar to distort mahabaratha war, Buddha avatar just to toxify Buddhism. There are hundreds of biologically impossible stories related to these avatars, each of them created only for the profit of Jewish Brahmins.
Brahmins personify different aspects of Tamil siddhars into different incarnations and asuras, make them fight against each other and destroyed Siddhar history. This list continue to Vinayaka, Krishna, Ayyappan, Kali etc with similar stories, either as the protector of Brahmin ideologies or as a demon.
All the evil characters of Brahmin puranas were non Brahminised Tamil siddhars or kings who were killed at the end of the story by a Brahminised Tamil Siddhar in the name of securing justice. Thus Brahmins coined a new word – ‘Asura’ meaning coward in Sanskrit in order to generalise their evil characters. Sadly this fictitious death Asuras is the base for ever popular Indian festivals from Diwali, Holi, Dussehra, Durga pooja, Onam etc.
Every time it was triumph of good over evil, at the centre of which is a demon (Asuran) who is killed by an armed divinity (Aryan). Ravanan (king of Lanka) was killed by Rama, Mahisasuran (king of Mahisur) killed by Durga (Brahminised Kotravai), Naragasuran (king of kamarupam) killed by Krishna (Brahminised mayon), Soorapadman and Tarakasuran (kings of Mehendrapuram) killed by Karthikeyan (Brahminised Murugan), Hiranyakshan and Hiranyskashypu (Kings of Agobilam) killed by Varaham and Narasimham (mythical reincarnation of Brahminised Parsuvanathar) and so on. Not to forget, every time it will be fleshy, dirty pool and double dealing.
Brahmins declared that Asura are cursed ones and are not qualified for the act of worship. Since the entire characters are looted ones, Jewish Brahmins are not able to fully neglect the worship of Asuras, peoples did worship them as their ancestors. Thus Brahmins inculcate local rulers that their worship within village is evil. Hence the real ancestors of Tamils are transformed to guardian god figures like Ayyanar, Karuppan, Mundan, Chudalaimadan, Muni etc and are thrown to village borders.
Manusmrithi is created by Brahmins as a part of divide and rule policy. It is actually a Brahmin civil law book, contain some of the most disturbing and discriminatory material which offended the compassionate Tamil society. They divided people based on their birth as Brahmins from the mouth of Brahma, Kshatriyas from chest, Vaishyas from Thighs, Sudrars from foot and fifth category untouchable chandalas from nowhere.
Manusmrithi specifies occupation, laws and punishments for each varnas. That is for the same crime, punishment given to Brahmin is cutting off his hair and punishment given to sudra is cutting of his head. Thus Manusmrithi recited to put an end to the educational, occupational and marriage freedom provided by aaseevagam to Tamils. They denies education to all, only Brahmins has the right to learn all the skills. Kshatriyas are allowded for basic education. All other groups are punished severely when they attempt to pursue knowledge.
Sangam literature mention about fifty seven women preachers; the number of goddess worshiped by Tamils indicate that, these preachers might be worshiped by their clan members. But Manusmrithi denies education to women, they’re treated as minions of men. They introduce sati. They saw women as a sexual material. They fabricate sensual purana stories to support this.
The laws are made such that, the non Brahmins and women are tricked to believe that the only way to attain salvation is to serve Brahmins without any resistance. There by establishing Manusmrithi, Brahmins controlled the society with their cunning rules and resisted the possible social reforms.
It is a fact that vedas has no references to temple like worship system. It is joined to Brahmanism by the decline of Budhism, Jainism and Samanam. Their meditating shrines, monasteries, academic houses were demolished by Brahmin pulled rulers and fixed as temples venerating neo Brahmin gods. They install idols of their new gods and practices Sanskrit as a medium of worship. More importantly, Brahmins wrote thalapuranam (temple’s legacy) for every temple by quoting the crocked tales they stated for the ownership of Tamil gods.
The emperor Ashoka was a patron of Buddhism who supersized Buddhist stupas in to Buddhist temples as idea of reverence to Buddha. The Puri Jagannath temple, Kasi Viswanath temple, Kedarnath temple, Badrinath temple, Amarnath temple, Mahabodhi temple, Bodh Gaya, Mathura, Ayodhya, Saranath, Srisailam, Nagarjuna Konda etc of northern India were some of the prominent hijacked Buddhist temples. The Brahmin stalwarts like Kumarila Bhatta and Shankaracharya asurped these temples and converted stupas into lingams.
he rest of Jain and Samana temples were converted during the bakthi movement of medieval era. Bakthi movement was a rework of ancient vedic tradition into Shaivism (Shiva) Vaishanavism (Vishnu) to encounter new political scenario. During bakthi movement more than thousand Tamil Samanar pallis were hijacked by Adi Shankara, Ramanuja, Madhavacharya and other Brahmin syndicates with the help of local rulers and converted to Tirupathi, Kamakshi, Meenakshi, Varadaperumal, Arunachaleshwarar, Kapalishwarar, Nellaiappar and many more temples with fancy names, again invent stories of reincarnation of their imaginary hero.
Tamil has its own music called Tamil pannisai mentioned in sangam literature. Silappathikaram clearly mention the system of music notes, Brahmins renamed this in the name of karnatic music and owned its legacy. Abraham Pandithar (musicologist) was an underrated researcher who done influential studies concerning the origins and evolution of traditional Tamil music and locate Karnatak music in the realm of Tamil with evidances in his book Karunamritha Sagaram.
Silapathikaram explain about verities of musical instruments which is now used along classical artforms includes kuzhal, Yaazh, veenai, mrithangam, nathaswaram, thakil etc. It mention Tamil musical troops like Urumi melam, Mangala vathiyam, Pandi melam etc and Tamil dances such as Karakattam, Koothu, Kaliyal, Silambattam,Sadirattam, Devarattam, Paraiyattam, Kummiyattam, Kavadiyattam, Bommalattam, Mayilattam, Oyilattam, Puliyattam, Pampattam, Poikal Kuthiraiattam, Purattu, Theyyam, Aivarkali, Kurathiyattam, Urumiattam, Villupaatu etc. Koothar, Viraliyar, Kodiyar, Vayiriyar, Paanar were the group of people who were practicing and propagating dance in the Sangam age.
The Jewish Brahmins know the importance of arts when it come to impose their ideologies into others, especially into rulers. So they copied Tamil art forms and created new art forms for the purpose of escalating their mythological stories on Tamil gods. These new art forms are strictly performed inside the temple and considered to be sacred. It includes Kathakali, Bharathanatyam, Mohiniattam, Kathak, Kuchipudi, Thullal etc. Brahmins claimed Natyshastra as a base for this.
The scholars P V Kane (Indologist) and R Nagaswamy (historian) do their research on Natyasasthra and concluded that it was a looted concept from Puhar Kandam of Silapathikaram, Natya Nannool and Tholkappiyum respectively. Modern studies proved that Bharathanatiyam is derived from Sadirattam of Tamils.
The Aaseevaga siddhars resisted vedic Brahmanism by constructing their theologies in the form of Buddhism, Jainism and Samanam. But Brahmins responded by reconstructing their vedic concept in the form of Shaivism and Vaishnavism which provoked some brutal genocide.
The bakthi movement of medieval period is a storm that converted almost every rulers of this land into Shaivism, Vaishnavism, Shakthism, Kaumaram, Ganapathyam etc. Prominently, the twelve Vaishnava azhwars and sixty three Shaiva nayanars (Tamil poet saints) spread Brahminic philosophy of Sanathana Dharma through devotional outpourings. They go in for debate with siddhars of other religions and successfully win most of them. The losers must convert themselves into Bakthi religion, otherwise they’re deported and brutally impaled with the help of rulers. The Periyapuranam and Tirunjanasambandam reflects a massacre of eight thousand Samanars by Koon Pandiyan when they were defeated to Thirugnana Sambandar. The present day villages of Kazhuvetram, Ennayiram, Samanatham near Madurai were named after this massacre. Similarly stubborn Shaivist king Kulothunga Cholan2 killed Samana siddhars by rolling them from the top of mountain. This mountain is now known as Aalurutti malai.
According to Vincent Smith (Historian), Adi Shankaracharya was the director of distroying Buddhism in India. He travelled entire India to defeat and convert Buddhists monks in debate with his dialectical skill and irrefutable arguments is one thing. But he was so ferocious that he led on rulers to cut down Bodhi tree (Buddhist meditating trees) drastically, organised Campaign of hatred and persecution against the Buddhists, propagate the myth that the Buddha was merely another incarnation Vishnu, divide Buddhism as Mahayanam and Teravadam to break their unity and so on. Sasanka, Mihirakula, Toramana kings follow Shankaracharya to murder Buddhist monks in masses and demolished 3000 Buddhist shrines and converted to Brahminical temples.Kumarila Bhatta, Ramanujacharya, Madhavacharya were also important proponents of Bakthi religion with ultimate aim of thrashing other religious philosophers. Although they were considered as godly figures in Hinduism, Their oppression was well explained by Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar (The Untouchables), Jawaharlal Nehru (Glimpses of World) and Thunjath Ezhuthachan (Keralolpathi).
That is, by the end of medieval period, we are ultimately came under the control of Jewish Brahmins and still continue to be in many ways. Being treated worse that beasts of burden and forbidden to receive any education, these people gradually lost touch with their true identity and finally fully reconciled themselves to the Brahminical order. There by they gladly embrace pursuit of Hindu identity.
Historians now agree that the term Hindu was coined historically by Persians to refer the people living around the Indus river. For most parts of recorded history, the term Hindu has been used by outsiders as a geographical term and not a religious term. Hinduism is never a unified religion, it was an artificial bundling of distinct religions with related beliefs and philosophies mainly used by Europeans for documentation. In short, modern Hinduism is an adjustment religion set up by the combination of various looted forms of imposed Brahmin made religions for the welfare of Jewish Brahmin community only.
What bleeds our people today is this profound historical error. The error lies in the understanding of state and religion. The European term ‘Hindu’ we borrowed and applied unthinkingly to ourselves. Hinduism is modern-day invention by colonial powers who mapped the world on their will. Hinduism in India, Islam in middle East, Confucianism in China etc each constructed in the mirror image of Christianity. We are made to bought into this false map in the name of national identity and political democracy for the sake of Brahmins. Thus we drained our original spiritual creativity and emptied the true historically possessed philosophical traditions.

In simple words, Aaseevagam means Science. The literary works of second Sangam period [1500 BCE] in Tamilakam reveals that Tamils do not follow any religion or caste. Still they follow a scientific religion like system in which people are involved individually in a permanent body of association to develop a social and political security. This theology under which Tamil society function is called Aaseevagam.
Lord Shiva was the first theorist of Aaseevagam who bind the human life with nature. I repeat, Aaseevagam is not a religion, it is the science of living. How do I say that?
Let us consider the three important ideologies of Aaseevagam.
1. Anukolkaiyal : All living things including animals, birds, trees, plants are created by nature as a result of large evolution process. Everything in the nature was composed of atoms, qualities emerged from aggregates of atoms, but the aggregation and nature of these atoms was predetermined by cosmic forces.
2. Tharkkaviyal : Application of spiritual logical techniques to real world problems. You must combine the science searching outside of you, away from you with the spirituality searching with in you at the centre of your existence to find truth or solution.
3. Oozhiiyal : All beings, all that have breath, all that are born, all that have life, are without power, or strength, or virtue, but are the result of destiny, chance and nature, and they experience joy and sorrow. You can control your mind and hence your life by focusing on your own conscious presence.
The above mentioned details were the observations of A L Basham (Australian Indologist) who done a research on ” History and Doctrines of Ajivikas (aaseevagam)” and justified that Aaseevagam clearly explain concepts of astronomy, life science, metallurgy, psycho therapy, sidha vaidhya, atomism, mathematics about 20000 years ago.
But sadly all the primary texts of Aaseevagam was burned and destroyed during bakthi movement of medieval era and also lost by the ransack of Nalanda university. So A L Basham and other prominent scholars in religious studies research through the secondary materials in Buddhism, Jainism and Sangam literature.
Aaseevagam has been mentioned in Tripithaka text (Pali) and Mahayana suthras (Tibeten) of Buddhidm, Agam sutras of Jainism, Neelakesi, Manimeghalai, Sivanjana Sidhiyar, Ettuthokai, Pathupattu and Thirukkural of Sangam literature. You may think like why Aaseevagam is mentioned in Buddhism and Jainism?
According to research done by Dr. T V Mahalingam (Indian Historian), he proved that Aaseevagam is the mother for Buddhism and Jainism which get separated in 5th century BCE by Gautama Buddha and Mahavira Vardhamana respectively. Since Buddhism and Jainism is growing parallelly, there is a need for aaseevagars to resist them by constructing their philosophy in the form of religion. Hence Markali Gosala reconstruct Aasevagam theology into a religion.
According to the paper published by Fred W Clothy in Journal of Ritual Studies, Markali Gosala is a Sanskritized name of Tamil sithar. His authentic name is mentioned in third sangam as Saththan. He is a expert in marpor (wrestling), hence he also renowned as Markaliyan. Since he born in the ayar kudi of Tamils, addition of gosala (cow shed) in joined to his name while Sanskritisation. He was contemporary of Buddha and an intimate friend of Mahavira. After he reconstruct the Aaseevagam into a religion, people respectfully designate him as Ayyanar and worshiped him in the later period.
So after Ayyanar, Aaseevagam become a religion and is came to be known as Samanam. That is by 5th century BCE, three new religions derived to this soil from aaseevagam. Both Samanam and Jainism believed to have 24 thirtankara (theervu thantha karar – savior of dharma) for each cosmic half cycles, only difference is their 24th thirtankara. Jainism has Mahavira as their 24th thirtankara while Samanam has Markali Gosala. So people confuse themselves by thinking that Samanam and Jainism are same and unfortunately don’t even know about the existence of Aaseevagam.
One set of Ancestral worship is the vital part of Aasevagam. This type of ancestral worship is still followed by Tamils called as Kula Deiva Vazhipadu meaning clan deity worship. Dr K Nedumchezhiyan published his research works about Kuladaiva Vazhipadu in “Aasevagamum Ayyanar Varalarum”. According to him, there is no deities; they’re sithars (scientists) who attained wisdom through years of meditation, penance and observation. There were thousands of sithars in which few of them completely revolutionised Tamil society with their unimaginable celibacy.
Adinathar was the first sithar of aaseevagam who attained enlightment through years of yogic practices. He is a hunter gatherer (vedan) of submerged Kumarikandam who discovered yoga and hence called Adiyogi.
Adinathar was an important astrologist who studied the constellations of stars. He identified that star is made of fire and claimed that sun is a star. He nearly explained the Big Bang process of universe creation through explosion of fire and sound and thus depicted as holding fire and drum in the Nataraja form. His Nataraja dance is a yogic dance form that demonstrate the movement celestial objects in space.
The half-male half-female ardhanareeshwarar form well explain the duel nature of material nature. This concept of dualism, describing how seemingly opposite or contrary forces may actually be complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world, and how they may give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another.
Sudalaimadan (Digger of graves), he dug out corpses to analyse human anatomy and hence he is usually adored with human skull and skeletons.
2. Karuppan [Murugan]
Murugan was the first farmer of neolithic age who developed the agricultural techniques through strict observation of nature.
He abstracted Adinathar’s duality concept with shivalingam and six faced star, hence named Arumugam. He was an embryologist studies embryo formation through ovum-sperm fertilisation and development of fetuses. His weapon Vel representing male semen and hence named as Velen and Karuppan (Karu means embryo and uruppu means organ)
He developed metal smithy and metalworking for making farming tools and devices to aid in activities like clearing soil, tilling, harvesting, etc. and also martial arts weapons. He is the first warrior to initiate the martial arts tradition among Tamils.
He established the building science which help Tamils to settle down near their farmland and hence create villages. So he is regarded as the first architect by Tamils.
He is a excellent mathematician who invented a tropical calendar comprising solstices, equinox and four seasons to suit farming.
3. Parsuvanathan [Vishnu]
The Parsuvanathan was the 23rd thirtankara for both Samanam and Jainism who lived in 1000 BC. He is a aasevagam sithar who specialised in astronomy and astrology, designed 12 constellations to make Zodiac Wheel and create Panjaangam. Parsuvanathan was adorned by a five headed snake which denotes the five aspects of the Tamil almonac of panjaangam. The Tamil word for planets is Veedu. So Parsuvanathan is also known as Veetinan meaning possesser of planets.
Veetinan -> Vettunu -> Vishnu
Vishnu is mentioned in vedas with Aananthasayanam, laying down with sky gazing eyes. But this was actually the position proposed by Aasevagam to observe celestial bodies. Every aasevaga palli has a nilakal at the top of near by hill up on which the students practice planetary science.
As admiration for his knowledge, his followers adorned him with a charkram representing cosmos spinning around his for finger. Similarly they adorned conch which produce cosmic sound.
4. Ayyanar [Ayyappan]
Ayyanar is a warrior who revered for his ascetic devotion to the ethical and right way of living. He deploy his military genius and daring yogic war abilities to protect peoples and trade routes from external threats.
He holds a whip or a scepter, as a show of authority and justice. He usually manifests in a squat position (Yogapattasana) with a meditation band known as Yogapattam around his knees and waist which depict his greatness in Yoga.
The other major sithars aaseevagam include Krishnan, Ravanan, Indran, Agathiyar etc
The gurukula education system was the vital part of Aaseevagam which is introduced by Lord Shiva 20000 years ago in Merumalai of Kumarikandam. Tamils consider education as fundamental, it is given to all, it is given free. Most important feature of gurukula system is that it is skill centered unlike the age based system of modern day. A student can pass to next stage of education only if he or she has full understanding of the concept. That is, a smart student can complete his education sooner than others. The age doesn’t matter, only skill is mattered. A child join gurukulam at the age of six, go through eighteen stages (six major stages with three sub stages each) of education to learn sixty four arts.
The one who completed six stages of education can add a title ‘asari’ to their name and awarded with a garland (poomalai) around their neck. The poomalai is a token of respect that signifies their responsibility to the society and it is considered to be so sacred. But many times, garland hinders during the work of asari, so the style of wearing garland is changed to wear across their arms. In course of time, the flowers in the poomalai is replaced by a simple white thread called poonool. Thus emerged the custom of wearing poonool among Tamil technocrats. Many people of viswakarma community still wear poonool as a token of respect for their esteemed profession.
The guidelines followed by this asari is termed as ‘asaaram’. Acharam is the corrupted version asaaram which is mainly misused by ‘pazhamakkar’ to win cheap arguments.
The preachers in gurukulam (Sithar) are not permanent peoples. They travel from place to place in search of them and to give spiritual lessons to people. The people and rulers are always welcomed this Samanar and do the needful, other wise they find their food through begging. Even today south Indian peoples refer beggar person as dharmakaran, which means person belong to dharmam (righteousness). The place choose by Samanar to give his lessons to people are named as palli. The samanar palli can be identified by a thirunilai silpam. Two elephants showering water on a girl sitting on a lotus flower. The other symbols of Aaseevagam includes elephant, horse, cow, dog, crow, lotus, Muruga star, mango tree, vagai tree etc. Today, the word palli denote ‘school’ in Tamil. The word aasiriyar means teacher is also derived from asari title.
The present town of Thiruchirappalli (thiru chirar palli – lesson giving place for children) is a place renowned for Samanar gurukulam.
The Bodhidharman (Bodhi sithar) was one of the best known example for a Samanar who travel from Thiruchirappali to China in 5th century AD. Thus Samanam is followed as Zen Buddhism in China.
Bodhidharman is expert in planetary science and Sidha vaidyam. He specialized in martial art called Silambam. In China he is worshiped as a creator of kungfu in Shaolin monastery. While closely observing the belt system of kungfu and karate, we can see the colour code of Aaseevagam in the reverse order from white to black. Since it is a martial art, black colour in karate black represent supreme bravery. That is, the service of Aaseevaga sithar is not limited to Tamils, they even traveled outside continent.
At the peak of Aasevagam, many native rulers initiated setting up Institutional idea in order to give education to every people. This highly formalised scholarship methods of Aaseevagam also helped to inspire the establishment of world’s first university in the later period. Nalanda university is actually a Buddhist monastery which is served as renowned learning centre for all set up by Magadha kingdom in 5th century CE.
That is, even a Tamil pottery man lived in the countryside was well literate enough to write down his name and the purpose for which pot is used long before 3000 BCE. Thanks to the Tamil tradition of inscribing the names of craftsman in their work. This widespread and early literacy shows how advanced was the Tamil society under gurukulam and Aaseevagam.
Western scholars in the colonial period concentrated almost wholly on Sanskrit based history studies. It is only from the mid-20th century, when Burrow and Emeneau published the Dravidian Etymological Dictionary, that interest in the Dravidian languages, especially Tamil, gained momentum. Those scholars who initially reluctant to admit that there could be early literacy in Tamil society now accept the reality in the light of sheer numbers of archaeologically established antiquity of Tamili pottery inscriptions. The pottery may be fragile, but evidence is firm.
The name of this ancient language is coined as “Tamili” in many stone inscriptions India starting from Buddhist inscriptions of 600 BCE. Major portion of stone inscriptions in India are Tamili inscriptions. Tamili is widespread in the world in form of stone inscriptions, coins, potteries etc.
However Europeans of 17th century used the word “Brahmi” or “Tamil Brahmi” to describe this Tamili script. The reference of Brahmi has no base. Since Sanskrit is celebrated like a cultural language of India at that time and it is used by elite group, with no shame, Brahmi replaced Tamili!

“Pakruli atrudan panmalai adukkath kumarikodum kodumkadal kolla vada disai imayavum gangayum konda thendisai aanda thennavan vaali”
The Sumerians were expert in warfare and the word sumeria was derived from the Tamil word ‘samar’ means fight. Sumerians were the first to bought agriculture to Mesopotamia. We know Murugan was the war god and invented faming technology. So the forefathers of Sumerians were probably one among who survived the deluge of Kumarikandam. The attributes of Ziusudra is also very close to the lessons of Murugan.
Ziusudra -> Ziu Sudra -> Seyo Sutra -> Seyon Suthra (Murugan)
The Sumerian hero Gilgamesh traveled the world in search of a way to cheat death. On one of his journeys, he came across an old man, Utnapishtim, who told Gilgamesh a story from centuries past. The gods brought a flood that swallowed the earth. The gods were angry at mankind so they sent a flood to destroy him. The god Ea, warned Utnapishtim and instructed him to build an enormous boat to save himself, his family, and “the seed of all living things.” He does so, and the gods brought rain which caused the water to rise for many days. When the rains subsided, the boat landed on a mountain, and Utnapishtim set loose first a dove, then a swallow, and finally a raven, which found land. The god Ishtar, created the rainbow and placed it in the sky, as a reminder to the gods and a pledge to mankind that there would be no more floods.
This story of Gligamesh is matched to Kumarikandam theory. The Gilgamesh could be a king of Babylonia, but he is named after Murugan and appended with Muruga’s attributes in the later era. Murugan asked Tamils to have more children which will helpful for them to do vast agriculture. So Tamils named murugan as Kameshwaran with his ‘vel’ representing male semen.
Gilgamesh -> Gil Gamesh -> Bel Kamesh -> Vel Kamesh (Murugan)
contain zircon, a tough mineral that doesn’t weather easily. If zircon older than nine million years was found on Mauritius, it would be good evidence of the presence of buried continental material. Finding zircons in sand is one thing, finding them within a rock is a more convincing evidence. This rock samples gave ages consistent with the ages of known continental rocks in Madagascar and India conclude that they’re once a tiny part of a much larger “supercontinent”.
