Dear Editor

I have been reading the articles of Karpaga Vinayagam for a while and it seems he is hell-bent on distorting the facts everytime he pens something. His only agenda seems to be ‘Hindu-Bashing ‘ and his articles are of devoid of facts and full of empty claims.

For example, his contention of Mahakavi Bharathiar showing his brahminical leanings by writting ‘kadannaiyum, madanaiyum kumbidum moodargal ‘ and by this, Bharathiar has lowered the dignity of non-brahmins, cannot be more far from the truth. Malar Mannan gave a reply citing Chellamma Bharathi ‘s assertion that one of the ‘ellai deivams ‘ is the ‘Kula Deivam ‘ for Bharathiar ‘s mother and Bharathi has never ever belittled the so called ‘Kadans & Madans ‘. It is a classic case of using the phrases out of context which in turn would distort the facts. I am a Brahmin and my maternal Grand Father ‘s ‘Kula Deivam ‘ is a ‘Grahma Ellai kaval deivam ‘ called ‘Neela megam ‘ who can be equated to the ‘Kadans & Madan ‘s ‘. I know several Brahmin families whose Kula Deivams are these Grahma Devathais and for most of them the offerings are such as the Eggs and other non-vegetarian stuff which, are not normally consumed by the Brahmins. I have seen these offerings made by Brahmin family themselves through the ‘Poosari ‘s ‘.

Let this Karpaga Vinayagam learn the facts before he starts writting. He seems to consider the articles of ‘Viduthalai ‘, ‘Murasoli ‘ etc to back his arguements. If the so called news items / articles published in these newspapers becomes a recording in the history, then let Karpaga Vinayagam ‘s ‘God ‘, I am sorry, most likely the ‘Nature ‘ saves us.

Thanks
