The Dravidian Lineages - The Nadars Through The Ages
- Dr.M.Immanuel

This book, a critique of Robert Hardgrave.Jr's The Nadars of Tamil Nadu - (1969) explains the socio-political ethno-linguistic and ethno-national heritage of ancient Indians linked with rulers, Sages and the Base-Society identified as Dravidians; A Nadar Chieftain with special reference to the Nadars of Asia, who are wrongly portrayed by major western scholars including Bishop Caldwell, as simple �Toddy Tappers�. But analyzing the hidden truths of history verified with various Maniketty Palace Court archaeological depictions found in the temples of India as well as different inscriptions gathered from India and abroad, the author finds the root of this ancient community to the ancestors of the Mahavira great Jain saint Mahavira and also to the kings like Chanta Asoka and many dynasties like the Chahamanaas, Rashtrakutas and Mouryas etc. Referring to the Sanskrit lexicon and various other Nadar Ornament literary evidences found in Indian epics and literature, the author establishes the roots of this community to the ancient Rajputs and other Base Societies known by different names in different times as Lichchavis, Madhva, Tvashtri, Nadar Woman Trippapur, Villava, Ediga, Vanava, Shanar (Santor), Chovan, Chauhan, Kavara, Vrishni, Bhills, Gramani, Ratnins, Vidhyadharas etc. Unfortunately, these tribes are presently neglected to the bottom realms of the society enforced by the Aryan Sanadhana Dharma; and the author craves for a reunification of all these tribes to establish a united India.
