Ancient rock art found in T.N. village




Rock art found in Theni district depicts a group of hunters in celebration mode after their job is over and (right) paintings of bulls with and without humps.— Photo: P. Balamurugan

Quote:
The paintings were done by prehistoric man with white kaolin

Rock art showing bulls with humps and without humps, deer, line drawings of a human being and jungle fowl and men celebrating perhaps after a successful hunt or a cattle raid have been found in two rock shelters in Tamil Nadu.
Prehistoric man did them with white kaolin.
Manjubhashini fell in love with Gandhiji’s principles as a young girl. She shook off the comforts of a wealthy life to join his fight for freedom. She burned foreign goods on Thambu Chetty Street in the city with Durgabai Deshmukh, rehabilitated Indians forced out of Burma in a camp in Madras in the early 1940s…Courting arrest for the country was nothing new for her. N. Gandhimathi, who knew her from the time she was eight, recalls how ‘Manjuma’ was like Gandhiji to her. “She was responsible for all the arrangements for Gandhiji’s prayer meeting held at Hindi Prachar Sabha during 1942-43,” she says. Manjubhashini worked meticulously to create a home for abandoned children in the city. Called Bala Mandir, she got it registered with the encouragement of K. Kamaraj in 1949. Even today, the home runs successfully in T. Nagar. The bust of Manjubashini can be seen on the premises of Bala Mandir.



While one group of paintings can be dated to the Iron Age (circa 1500 BCE to circa 500 BCE), the second one may belong to the early historic age (circa fifth century BCE to circa third century CE).

P. Balamurugan, research scholar, Department of History, Pondicherry University, discovered them in March.
There was something terrible in store for Sornathammal on the night of October 2, 1942. She, along with fellow freedom fighter Lakshmi Bai Ammal, organised a women’s march in Madurai shouting the ‘Vellaiyane Veliyeru’ (Quit India) slogan. The women were arrested by the police and beaten. They were stripped and left outside in the dead of night near Alagarkoil. But Sornathammal was a woman with a heart of steel — the episode failed to shake her resolve to fight for the nation. She participated in Individual Satyagraha and was jailed for three months in 1942. Ever the patriot, the book Madurai Mavatta Sudhanthira Poratta Varalaru by S. N. Somayajulu mentions that Sornathammal spent long hours at the charka spinning khadi.

He found them on the right bank of the river Vaigai, near Arugaveli village, seven km east of Mayiladumparai, in the Kadamalaikundu region of Andipatti taluk, Theni district. The two rock shelters are in different locations on a small hill, forming part of the Western Ghats.
Ambujammal was 36 years old when she received this letter. As the daughter of advocate Srinivasa Iyengar, Ambujammal led a privileged life. But she gave up all material comforts because of one man — Gandhiji. Born in 1898, Ambujammal became his follower ever since she met him when he came to Madras in the 1920s. “She gave away her diamonds and silks for the Harijan Welfare Fund when she visited Sevagram,” recalls Sarojini Varadappan, for whom Ambujammal was a ‘mentor’. Over 90 years old, the ailing social worker recalls how she, along with Ambujammal, gave free Hindi classes in a tiny room off Royapettah High Road before Independence.



K. Rajan, Professor of History, Pondicherry University, said the two rock shelters are called “Chitrakalpudavu” in Tamil. ‘Chitram’ means painting, ‘kal’ is rock and ‘pudavu’ means shelter, he explained. On the ceiling and inner wall of one shelter are painted bulls with and without humps, a bull lying on the ground, deer and jungle fowl.
Padmasani Ammal delivered a baby girl in the village of Papparapatti, Dharmapuri District, when she was participating in a Cauvery yatra. But the baby didn’t survive. Again she was three months pregnant when she was imprisoned for speaking against the police at a campaign in Madurai, which resulted in a miscarriage. But nothing, not even the death of her two sons, came in the way of her fighting against the British. Known for her fiery speeches, Padmasani sent off her husband with a garland and tilak when he went to prison for picketing toddy shops. She offered her jewellery to youngsters led by S. N. Somayajulu who wanted to bring down British colonel James Neil’s statue on Mount Road in 1927 — the agitation was known as ‘Neil Statue Satyagraha’. Viduthalai Velviyil Thamizhagam mentions that she set up a school at Manamadurai for the less-privileged in 1935, on the insistence of Gandhiji.

They have been depicted in a circular manner around a human figure. While the bulls have been fully painted with white pigment, the human being and the jungle fowl are line drawings. Dr. Rajan estimated that this group of paintings belong to the Iron Age.
The Alumni Association works as an interface for maintaining the relationship with the alumni and to involve them in the development and growth of the institution.



The paintings in the other shelter show men with upraised hands, as if they are celebrating after a victorious hunt or a cattle raid. Among the paintings here are a deer and an animal with a long tail.
Since Continuous interaction with Alumni is expected to increase the placement opportunities of the students, AAMEC Alumni association makes earnest attempts to strengthen the bonds between the alumni and AAMEC.

This group of rock paintings could belong to the early historic period, he said.

An Iron Age habitation mound, littered with black and red ware, is situated at the foothill of this site, suggesting that these paintings could have been executed by a proto-historic community, Dr. Rajan says.

Rock paintings were found during a recent field work in a rock shelter, Kutiraikattiputavu, that is, a shelter where horses are tied. There are more than 120 rock art sites in Tamil Nadu.
Anjalai Ammal was a prominent freedom fighter in the Indian struggle for independence. She was born in 1890 in a simple town called Mudhunagar which is located in Kadalur. She was born in a simple family. She started her political life by joining the Non - Cooperation movement of Mahatma Gandhi. She participated in a lot of struggles and also suffered many years in the prison. She was pregnant when she was arrested and sent to Vellore jail. Due to this reason she was released and after childbirth she was sent to Vellore jail again. She sold her family lands, her house and spent the money for India's struggle for freedom. She also made her nine year old child to participate in the struggle for removing Neelan's statue and went to jail along with her daughter. Once Gandhi came to Kadalur, but the British government prohibited him to visit Anjali Ammal. But Anjalai Ammal came in a horse cart wearing burqa and visited him. Due to her courage, Gandhi called her as South India's Jhansi Rani.

If this is in US/european countries it would be marketed and visited well.

St. Augustine near Jacksonville is historic(oldest) district in US that is only 450 years old.

Discovering Trichy's Madras connections
- with Sriram V.

Quote:
"Come, O ladies, let us go see the Lord of Srirangam," sang Tyagaraja when he visited Trichy in 1836. I should have known that he was predicting a heritage tour of the area and, sure enough, did one recently with an all-woman audience.
Ambujammal actively participated in the Non-Cooperation Movement and boycotted foreign goods and clothes — she was even imprisoned twice for six months in 1932. She dedicated her life to the cause of India’s freedom and inspired several women to do the same. Women’s welfare was at the top of her agenda. She set up the Srinivasa Gandhi Nilayam in 1948 at Teynampet where free milk, medicines and kanji (gruel) were given to the needy. Ambujammal was known for her simplicity. Akkamma, as she was lovingly called, dressed in khadi and wore nothing but a strand of beads around her neck.



AURA is a women\'s association in Trichy which does much by way of social causes. It also invites speakers to address its members. I had done so in 2009. That year they decided that I must lead them on a heritage tour of Trichy. I was most reluctant. My knowledge of the town was limited to my going there on holidays. But it had a history that would make any enthusiast\'s mouth water.
Whenever Gandhiji visited Tirupur, he stayed at the Asher household. Padmavathy Asher, the woman of the house, was a genial host. According to Viduthalai Velviyil Thamizhagam, during his first visit to Tirupur in 1925, Gandhiji invited Padmavathy to join the Congress. Thus began her journey with the Freedom Movement. She went on to become an All India Congress Committee member and the treasurer of the All India Mahila Congress. Padmavathy first courted arrest in 1930 for participating in the Salt Satyagraha Movement. She was later jailed for a year for taking part in the Civil Disobedience Movement. Padmavathy fought against untouchability and alcoholism, and spread Gandhiji’s message and helped propagate the Khadi Movement among the people in Tirupur.

And so, as it always happens when I try to get women to see my point of view, I ended up being convinced instead and committed to the tour.


Rock Fort from Theradi Bazaar

As Trichy has a story to tell at virtually every corner, keeping time, traffic and temperature in mind, we decided to restrict the tour to the Rock Fort and its environs and within that space to a select dozen locations that would give an idea of what Trichy\'s heritage was.
They fought against the British, went to prison, instilled new energy in the nation through their songs and words… Sadly, the women who participated in the Freedom Movement are not well-known. Engammal from Tirunelveli, Kaliammal from Madurai, Kuppammal from Tiruchi, Kuttiammal from Coimbatore…the list is endless.

As I set about researching the locations to visit, I was helped by numerous people, including my parents ("How can you not visit Coronation Park?"), Karthik Bhatt ("What? A tour of Rock Fort without Tawker Lane?") and Dr. Chithra Madhavan ("There are two caves and not one Try and see the Pandyan cave temple also").

I sent the list of places in advance to the club and the members, together with local enthusiast and trekker Sridhar Bharati, set about identifying them so that we did not have to search for them during the three-hours\' morning tour by van and foot.
It promotes and encourages the alumni to exchange professional knowledge by organizing conferences, seminars, lectures and meetings amongst alumni, students, faculty and others.




Natharvali Dargah

At 6.30 am we were at the Natharvali Dargah. This historic shrine, said to be 1100 years old, is just outside the Rock Fort area. It is the burial spot of Hazrat Dada Nathar Auliya, one of the great Sufi saints. He came from Istanbul and settled in South India, dying in Trichy in 1069 CE. The Nawabs of Arcot particularly venerated Nathavali and there was even a move in their time to rename Trichy as Nathar Nagar. It is significant that three personages from the family - Chanda Sahib, Mohammad Ali Wallajah and Umdat-ul-Umrah - the latter had spent much time in Madras - are buried here.

The next stop was in the shadow of the Rock Fort, this being Nadu Guzili Street. This was the old Gujarati quarter and their connections with the town go back almost 600 years. Close by is Diamond Bazaar, where most of the Gujaratis made their fortune. A lane off Nadu Guzili is Tawker Chattram Lane. This commemorates one of the best-known Gujarati families of Trichy. The Tawkers, almost all of whom had the initial T to indicate that they came from Trichy, were one of the oldest Gujarati families to come South. They were known for their success in the trade and their acts of philanthropy. One of the latter was the Tawker Chattram which stood till recently by this lane. The Tawkers were to establish a powerful presence in Madras by the close of the 19th Century. Their showroom on Mount Road, their residence on Peter\'s Road (now New College) and their sensational collapse following a sale on credit to the Nizam of Hyderabad in the early years of the 20th Century are all the stuff of legend. Interestingly, a Tawker Chattram still survives in Ayanavaram, close to the Kasi Viswanatha Swami Temple, also built by the Tawkers. As I was relating the story, a middle-aged man joined in to listen keenly. At the end of it he shyly introduced himself. He was Shankar Tawker. That was too good a photo-op to miss and we all posed with him.

From here we walked through streets with names such as Periya Chetty, Sourashtra, etc., and came to Theradi Bazaar Road. The Rock Fort loomed large at one end of it. Here, completely lost among a warren of shops stands Coronation Park, an unbelievably sylvan oasis. Sponsored by the plantain brokers of the Teppakulam area, it is a tree filled park whose foliage is so dense that it remains dark for most of the day. In the evening, birds in their thousands come to roost and the music they make is to be heard to be believed. Strewn about in the park are vestiges of past grandeur - derelict fountains, broken ornamental lights and dried up tanks. In the middle, standing beneath a bower, is a statue of Queen Victoria, which from its floral garlands of recent vintage appears to be in worship! Below the statue is a plaque that states that the park was inaugurated in 1901 by R.H. Shipley, the Collector of Trichy.
College day and Founder's day Celebrations - 2017 held on 25.03.2017 ...

The park commemorates the coronation of King Edward VII which took place that year.

Just behind the park stands Mangammal\'s Durbar Hall. An ornate octagonal Indo-Saracenic marvel inside, it is completely hidden by later British additions. This is the Government Museum now. It was yet to be opened for the day when we got there, but a look at the environs gave a hint as to the level of upkeep inside. A long lane separated the Hall from its more modern neighbour and this passage doubles up as a local latrine.
It maintains separate collection of reference books bound volumes of back journals, Technical reports and compact disks stacked in the library first floor. The house keeping operations of the library is fully automated with AutoLib version 6.0 Library Automation Software.

We braved it in the hope of seeing the Hall from the rear. But we were in for a disappointment as high walls at the rear hid the Hall from view. A plaque, put up during the Raj and akin to what we see on Chepauk Palace and Clive House (in Fort St George), stated that this had been the Durbar Hall of Mangammal of the Naik Dynasty, circa 1700.

According to local tradition, the Durbar Hall is but a small remnant of what was a much larger palace built by Mangammal\'s husband Chokkanatha Nayak. The construction was made possible by cannibalising the Tirumalai Nayak Mahal in Madurai when Chokkanatha shifted his capital to Trichy in 1665. When Chokkanatha and his son Rangakrishna Muthu Virappa died in quick succession, it was left to the former\'s wife, Mangammal, to steer the kingdom through a tough period of 12 years when her grandson Vijayaranga Chokkanatha was a minor. Her diplomacy and determination saw her through several attempted invasions. Sadly, her grandson did not have her vision. His coming of age in 1704 saw Mangammal vanish and it is rumoured that she was starved to death. The grandson did not do much beyond composing songs on Ranganatha in a long reign till 1731. His death saw his wife Meenakshi attempt a Mangammal-like act but that was not to be. Chanda Sahib took over in 1736 and Meenakshi\'s suicide saw the end of the Nayaks. From then on what happened and how Trichy, along with the rest of the Carnatic, became a part of the British empire is well known.


Clive Hostel Faзade



Clive Hostel Passage



The plaque marking where Robert Clive stayed.

The town was to, however, play a key role in this takeover, for the siege of Trichy in the Carnatic wars was when Robert Clive displayed his mettle. Clive Hostel, nestling at the foot of the Rock Fort and facing the Nayak-built temple tank, is today synonymous with a warren of shops long straggling neo-Gothic facade fronted by it. A marble plaque, similar to the one at Mangammal\'s palace, says that Clive lived here in 1752. What is clear, however, is that Clive must have taken over a Muslim nobleman\'s residence when he came to Trichy.

The shopping arcade can be architecturally divided into two parts. The lower level is a series of arches in Islamic style, with a central passageway that leads to a vast open courtyard.
Inaugural ceremony of AAMEC - ANSYS Centre of Excellence on 07.01.2017, Saturday @ 10.30 a.m. ...

A Naubat Khana as in Amir Mahal would have probably topped this structure, and drums would have been beaten there on ceremonious occasions. This upper storey must have later made way for the Gothic structure that was later commercialised. All this is the property of St Joseph\'s College, whose church dominates the skyline on the other side of the tank. When the college moved to Trichy from Nagapattinam in the 1880s, Clive House became the hostel for its students.

It still remains one. Inside, on three sides of open courtyard are the hostel buildings. The ones on the left and right are new additions. The building at the far end is of earlier vintage. We were assured that this was where Clive lived. But alas, a plaque there gives the date of construction as 1913. There must have been an older structure here that had served as Clive\'s residence and, no doubt, it was demolished to make way for the hostel a century ago. Whatever be the case, the upkeep of the premises is shocking and even the sole plaque commemorating Clive is ready to fall off, being kept in place by an air-conditioner that hides it from view.



Schwartz\'s Christ Church

On coming out of Clive Hostel, if you walk to your right along the tank, you reach Nandi Koil Street. Here, exactly opposite the Naganatha Swami Temple, is Christ Church, built by the Rev Christian Frederick Schwartz in 1766. It lays claim to being the second oldest Anglican church, built east of the Suez, after St Mary\'s in Fort St George. The Rev Schwartz is a legend in South Indian history. Known as Schwartz Iyer owing to his piety and learning, he is best remembered as the guardian of the young Serfoji and for waging a ceaseless and ultimately successful battle to get the latter recognised as the rightful Raja of Tanjore.

Schwartz came to India in 1750 as part of the Danish Mission and then moved to Trichy where he set up home in the same premises where Christ Church stands. His home, a single storied building mounted on a high plinth which accommodates subterranean chambers, can still be seen on one side. It was in this house that Schwartz first thought of the Vestry School for the children of officers killed in a magazine explosion in 1763. The Nawab lent a hand in funding it. From 1766, the school functioned from the vestry of Christ Church and became the Vestry School. In 1812 it moved to St John\'s Church built in the newer cantonment area of Trichy where it still functions. 2013 is its 250th year.

Christ Church has a marble plaque too and it records its date of consecration and also states that the land for the church was donated by the Nawabs of the Carnatic (rather like the way they donated the land for the Kapaliswarar Tank). It is, however, in St.Mary\'s in Madras that Schwartz is remembered in a huge bas-relief.

The church though kept well, has seen renovation that can only be termed as ill-advised. Polished granite has replaced the old flooring.
An excellent collection of books, Journal s and non book materials in the field of science, engineering, technology, Humanities, Social sciences ,Management and General books staked in the ground floor.

The memorial stones that lined the floor are now permanently buried underneath. The new granite floor has markings and inscriptions reproduced to indicate whose memorials lie below, but it is just not the same is it? The old wagon-vaulted ceiling (on the same lines as the Mangammal Durbar Hall) has been dismantled and replaced with a flat roof. A false ceiling hides whatever there is on top. A metal spire now tops the church that probably had none to begin with. The stained glass fanlights over the doors have survived intact, thankfully. The altar has been given a new coat of gold paint.

Not far from here is the Bishop Heber School. Established in 1826, it commemorates Reginald Heber, Lord Bishop of Calcutta, who that year died in Trichy while in his bath tub.

Looking down on all this recent history is the immense bulk of the Rock on which a Fort was built at 83 metres in height and said to be over 3.8 billion years in age, it is older than the Himalaya, The Fort is home to a small settlement and the historic temple to Tayumanaswami - Shiva who took the guise of a mother to help a pregnant devotee through her labour. The 100 pillared hall which is half way up has seen umpteen music concerts right through the 19th and most of the 20th Century. Mostly kept locked now and used as a wedding hall on hire, its pillars can tell us a lot of Carnatic music history if only they could. At almost the same level is a unique three-storied bell tower, 19th Century in vintage. It combines elements of Indo-Saracenic and is topped by a Dravidian Vimana!

A road originally used by processional elephants leads half way up to the Rock Fort. A village still exists here. On one side of it is lower Pallava cave, there being an upper one, much nearer the summit. The lower cave, dated to 580 AD is a typical rock-cut shrine with alcoves for deities facing the entrance and two empty sanctums on the extreme left and right. It is thought that these were Jaina caves built by Mahendra Varman which were later converted into Hindu shrines. This also gives credence to the theory that Tirucchirappalli gets its name from Tiru Jina Palli.

The Rock Fort area is in many ways like our George Town. Though a lot cleaner, it faces the same problems of over crowding, unregulated traffic (though a system of one-ways is in place) and rampant demolition of old structures to make way for crass modern showrooms. This \'retail-isation\' of the area needs to be stopped at all costs. A huge enclosure at the foot of the rock is said to be the future home of a retail giant in the region, an equivalent to the kind that dominates our T Nagar. There is no list of heritage structures and no protection is afforded to any bar those that are under the ASI. Nobody has any information on the historic buildings that still survive. The area has immense potential for tourism and it will be a pity if it all goes away. Hopefully the women who came on the tour will show the way.

Salt Satyagraha to be re-enacted at Agasthiampalli on Apr. 30

Tiruchiites who have been witnessing hectic electioneering by all leading parties were surprised to spot a small crowd of at the Vedaranyam Salt Satyagraha Memorial at the junction area on Sunday morning.

Clad in khadi and sporting Gandhi caps the crowd of mostly senior citizens have assembled their not for seeking votes for any party, but to pay respects at the memorial on the 85th anniversary of the famous Vedaranyam Salt Satyagraha.
Department of Training and Placement are organizing Soft Skill Training Programme and Campus Interview ...



The event was organised by Salt Satyagraha Dandi Yathra Committee.

It was at the break of dawn on April 13, 1930, the Vedaranyam Salt Satyagraha March, on the lines of the Dandi March, led by Mahatma Gandhi himself from Sabarmathi Ashram in Gujarat, commenced from the bungalow of T.S.S.Rajan, a legendary freedom fighter, in the heart of the city.

Late Rajaji, considered as Gandhiji’s ‘southern warrior’, led a group of 100 select Congress workers to Vedaranayam. Well-known Congress leaders Rukmini Lakshmipathi, Mattapparai Venkataramaiyar, A.N.Sivaraman, G.Ramachandran, Padmanabhan, Rajan, T.V.Swaminatha Sastri, G.K.Sundaram, and K.Santhanam participated in the march. The Sathyagrahis covered 16 km a day and stayed in camps at various places before reaching Vedaranyam on April 28. Sardar Vedarathinam Pillai, made secret arrangements for Rajaji to reach the Agasthiampalli salt pans before daybreak on April 30, when he was arrested.

D.Sakthiselvaganapathi, general secretary, Salt Satyagraha Dandi Yathra Committee, presided over the programme, when Puthur K.Dakshinamoorthy and Valangaiman Rasu Thenkondar, both freedom fighters, offered floral tributes at the stupi. They also took a pledge of following the footsteps of Gandhiji.

N.R.Sathiamoorthy, joint secretary of the committee, Siva Shanmugavadivel, vice presidentspoke.

A resolution urging the State government to introduce total prohibition in the State and also to convert the T.S.S.Rajan Bungalow, where Gandhiji used to stay whenever he visited Tiruchi, into a Gandhi memorial with immediate effect, was adopted on the occasion.

Mr.Sakthiselvaganapathi said that a group of members of the committee will proceed to Vedaranyam in vehicles on the same route covered by the satyagrahis on April 30 and will re-enact the satyagraha at Agasthiampalli beach.
