The rise from covetous/cunning act of poonulkaran/parppanan and other idiotic pillaimagangal were not
written by the idiotic british writers. All the groups are once were rulers of tamil kingdoms
. These facts were willingly hiden by the writer. They are always NADAARS. Which mean they were not usurping money from other weakers sections like kallans and traditional hooligans

I have read the Tamil translation of the book "The Nadars of Tamilnad" by Robert L. Hardgrave a political historian of USA. It is more informative and makes me understand the caste system ...P.Sermuga Pandian
