1/15 In today's thread I would like to focus on the grand Dravidian deceit on Tamil culture and Civilisation with the agenda to hide the Hindu identity of Tamil Nadu! Its about #Keeladi #Keezadi #Excavations

2. .How many of us do really know that #Keeladi , a recent panchayat, is originally identified as a part of another adjacent village #Kondhagai? This beautiful village has 2 temples. Archaeologists knew about this village and its ancient history for a very long time.

3. #Pandian King’s stone inscriptions of 12CE has been excavated which was gifted to #Brahmins as Kunthidevi Chaturvedi Mangalam. Adjacent to this is another urban settlement called Kunthadevi Chaturvedi Mangalam.

4.#Konthagai is the birth place of noted Sri Vaishnava Saint #ThiruvaimoziPillaiAlwar . We get to know more about this village through Meikattita padalam of #Thiruvilayadalpuranam, which narrates a chieftain & a Shiva devotee

5. According to this narrative, #SedhibarKoman was planning to invade the Pandiya Kingdom from north. Upon hearing this news, the king instructs #SundaraSambandhan, his chieftain, to prepare an army to counter the invaders.

6. Unfortunately, this chieftain spends the money for the welfare of people. As the war approaches, he prays to the Lord who in-turn creates a "Mirage" through which the invaders perceive the presence of huge army. It deters #SedhibarKoman who avoids waging war there

7. Even today the progeny of Kondhakulathu #SundaraSambandan survies as Kondhagai Vellalar (as recorded in 6 nattar pattayam). But Who is this #SedhibarKoman? Is he a fictional character? Where is he from?

8. Apparently, he belongs to the lineage of Sisupalan (Ref: Mahabaratha). His kingdom was in Orissa in a place called Sisubalgarh (outskirts of Bhubhaneshwar). In its hey days it must have been a big city with over 25000 inhabitants.

9.There is a stone inscription dated 172BC which mentions a King, Sedhibar Kaaravelan, which says he broke a grand alliance (Thamiradesasangadham) of Tamil Kings and took jewels of about on lakh worth of Pearls & gem stones (muthu mani rathinam anekani lakhani)

10.This king is proud of his victory as even mighty Mauryas couldn’t break. Purananuru and Ashoka’s inscriptions confirms this fact. With this it becomes clear that Sedhibar Karavelan invaded Kondhagai after Maurya’s era.

11.The current narrative is that Keeladi is a totally secular state with no relation with Hinduism. Keeladi/Kondhagai has been an urban settlement through out the ages with strong Shivaite and Vaishnavaite link. Why this truth is hidden from general public?

12. Have you seen any archaeologist participating in TV debates that surrounds Keeladi? Why “secular” film directors are more concerned than archaeologists? What is their agenda? Do we get to see the truth of “Hindu” identity of this village?

13. Dravidian parties have been ruling Tamil Nadu since 1969. What did they do to develop Tamil or to identify significant archaeological sites? If any thing happened, it was during K. Kamaraj rule.

14. This careful deception is planned by DMK to hide the Hindu identity of Tamils so that they can keep deceiving ignorant masses through false emotions that Tamils are secular and Tiruvalluvar is a Jain thus effectively erasing Valluvar’s own Hindu identity.

15.It’s a shame that many Tamils are sucking-up to this false narrative, purely on emotions with out thinking or asking for evidence. Wakeup friends! Smell the Sambar!
