Title

KAMUDI TEMPLE ENTRY CASE - A STUDY

Abstract

In November 1985, the Nadars of Kamudi petitioned to the Meenakshi Sundaraswara temple of the town, a temple under the trusteeship of the Raja of Ramnad M. Baskara Sethupathi for permission to conduct a ritual feast. Their petition was approved but it should be conducted so as not to contravene the custom and that Nadars should into enter into the temple. The Nadars asserted that it was the ancient privilege of the Nadars to worship in the temple. Vellasami Thevar, a hereditary ruler of a vast estate under the Raja of Ramnad formed an anti-Nadar combination to prevent the Nadars from exercising their rights. From his village of Pasumbon, two miles from Kamudi, he commanded the loyalty of the Marava community and demanded the difference of all classes. The Nadars refused to humble themselves before him with a tightening economic hold over the area. To bring the Nadars into line, under his leadership, the Maravars of the surrounding villages and the caste Hindus of Kamudi entered into a confederacy against the Nadars and covenanted themselves not to buy things from or sell things to them. The confederacy ended only with the arrest and five year imprisonment of Vellasami Thevar, who was the grandfather of the late Muthuramalinga Thevar, leader of the Maravar dominated Forward Block.1 This incident kindled the spirit of the Maravara against Nadars.
