Pillai mar.In this he said Mr.Jeyakanthan once said in a meeting if any
situation arises him to include any caste name after his name he will be
happily put "pillai ",His own caste.
  Also u included many of the names which I have sent earlier .But Mr.Nellai Kannan,Why.,
Also Mr.Jeevandham ,Great communist leader ,known for his simplicity and
dedication . Also if you can please delete " Makkal vazhi" pillai mar
from Nanjil Nadan's description.Because I am afraid he dislike this.

feedback: I searched VOC as "Kappalottia Tamilan" but all the sites returned correctly except your site http://www.geocities.com/tiruneelveli/Pillai/VOC.htm

showing "Kappalottiya vellalan". He was one of the leader accepted by whole Tamil people but you are making he was  vellalan. VOC worked for the whole Tamil and India. He represented Tamils respectedly in freedom struggle.

Other stupid caste leaders worked for their castes but VOC worked for Tamil and gained million years glory "Kappalottia Tamilan" for us.

Its very wrong that you confined him as vellalan and please change as Tamilan. Even VOC won't accept this and would go broader as Tamilan.

feedback: Dear Sir/Madam:

I have been an ardent fan of Jeyakanthan for the past several years. Although I do not agree with all his views, I have many of his books and still read them. To say the least they are thought provoking.

I would like to congratulate him with a personal note on his recent recognition by the academy. By any chance do you have his address (e-mail or postal) or his telephone number?

dear sir,
        nice to see your reply. thanks for your response. ofcourse,i would
have to ask my parents (they are in India) to send all photocopies, if you
like to add. i can also give you one suggesstion if you wants to look all of
our's great, u can read the book about freedom fighters in tamilnad, written
by sri chakaravarthy rajagopalachari @ rajaji, the great leader. in this
book they have mentioned about all community people, from this you read
about our people also. we do have  one copy at home, but it is oldest and
consists of more pages( i beleive hard to make all pages to be
photocopied)..but we can try. bcoz we really need that book. I will talk to
my father and let you know further.

yours truly,
Manikandan.S

feedback: dear,
thanks for your more positive response on my suggesstion. it shows how
great efforts you are showing on developing this site.GREAT! CHEERS UP!
I would like to request you one thing, do you have any total printed
editions of current varans.it might also be helpful for people who resides
in India too. Bcoz thats what every one is looking for.
thne one more about the Great pillai's... I will be happy if you
cateogrise as Legends from saiva like that....there you can also include
all personalities (even little )in all locations...it will also be helpful
on choosing varans from one to another region as to identify the group or
their culture...may i right? I am not very sure whether it will be helpful
or not...if u need any technical support pls let me know i can talk to my
guys or brothers who all are in software technology...for example, my
Grand father is a freedom fighter, who was well known in our region...that
could be easy for others to relate suitable varans to our people...

pls let me know your ideas, that will be fine.

thank you,

yours,
S.MANIKANDAN

Dear Sir,
 I have sent the copy of Nanjil Nadan's " Nanjil Nattu
Vellalar Vazhai" y'day  by Professional Courier.
It was delayed b'coz
Iwas out of station for the last few days .
Read the book ,I believe it
will be very interesting to u,Kindly feed back  ur idea about the  book
after u read.
with love
Ramalingam

Dear sir
Thanks for ur  efforts and it worked nice.
Thanks for your
feedback on Nanjil nadan’s “Nanjilnattu Vellalar  Vazkai”.I was
confident ,when I was sending it, it will be very interesting you as a
person who loves his society and continuously searching his root.
As I
know little about his writing activities he was not doing any further
reading or researching to evolve this book. He just recited what he
experienced, what he learnt,what he felt and what he concerned about his
caste. In most of his novels and short stories he invariably criticized
moneyed people, namely ‘Pannaiyars’of his own community .So that he
proved he is not a caste chauvinist, but some of his friends like
Mr.Sundaram Ramasamy pushed him write about Nanjil nattu vellalars,they
hide their identity with in Nanjil Nadu.They aware he is the only
eligible person can write about this community. In his stories what he
spoke through his characters were composed in this book.
        
Since their childhood days he and my father has been friends, they, both
were economically depressed .So that they face inequality with wealthier
people of their own caste. It hurt their heart in their tender age that
still show it’s face in their expression. Nanjil Nadan’s most of the
books are based on his own story or his people ‘s story. So that
Kalyanji once said” Nellai thandia manidharkal Nanjil nadan kadhaikalil
ulaviyavrgali pola veru engum kana kidapathillai”.Using his book we can
visualize what was his attitude towards our own community
“Pannaiyars”.They not only cruel against Dalit or other caste people
also their own caste poor people .Fortunately that period was over
because diminishing agricultural income. The modernization and
industrialization gave more opportunities to other district people but
not Kanyakumari district. This depressed vellala people moved to other
professions and some moved to other places to find opportunities, the
pannaiyars and their family spend money by selling their properties.
Some KK dist people still run their life by little wages from farm
activities. They can’t leave agriculture because it is in their blood.

 If a community wants to rebuild or uplift, most of its people should be
economically sound and having a mindset to help his own peolple. That
was happened in many other castes improvement but not ours.
The
current scenarios is lot more hopeful for our community .About 25 years
KK people not aware the avenues of opportunities even though they were
relatively literate than other caste ,place people .They denied
opportunities because of relocation from their nanjil.As a whole our
velalar community having uniques names like “PILLAI”or “Vellala” with
different prefixes ,but we differ in some kind i.e some times place ,or
culture,formalities etc.but I am sure major proportion of this people’s
root was to be unique.
This is the right time we have to unifies as
strong force in TN.It is not against other castes.History says only
Brahmins and Vellalars are not making much conflict between other caste
people.This unification  will only come from relationship among
subsects ,this come from inter caste marriages.In our Nanjil nadu Makkal
–Marumakkal inter sub caste marriages are acceptable in many families
.Which was strongly forbidden in earlier.There was a time when these
people tolerate other caste marriages but not makkal-marumakkal.The
mindset to accept inter caste marriage is a time consuming but inter
vellala will be common in other 10 years ,if some initiatives taken by
people like you through matrimony sites.Never doubt that a small group
of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world.
