    An Institution called Sourashtra
    Samuha Nalapperavai started with the objective of serving the society with
    selfless service for upliftment of Community with a view to awaken the people,
    celebrated its first anniversary clubbing with a function to honour
    the various outstanding personalities in Sourashtra Community
    who have done selfless service, is itself praiseworthy, as observed by Sri
    T.V.Kubendran, the Editor of the Journal Bhashabhimani

    The audience disappointed by the
    absence of the following personalities:

    Sri V.P.Ramamoorthy, Dr.R.H.Ravindranath
    Babu, Sri Raya R.Govindarajan,

    Sri T.A, Ramanathan, Smt. Kamala
    Rajendran, Sri T.M.Soundararajan, Sri S.A.P. Varadan and Sri T.G.Premkumar.

    All the outstanding personalities
    present were presented with a ‘ponnadai’ and a Medal with the title “Sourashtra
    Sri”

    Many people who were honoured
    appreciated the services of Sourashtra Samuha Nalapperavai.The Nayaki Mandir
    was fully crowded and people were standing to listen the address by the various
    outstanding personalities.

    It was quite but natural, many could
    not get ample time to deliver the message they contemplated thanks to the
    paucity of time.

    I wonder how the organisers decided to
    honour all the 34 personalities on one particular day within a short duration
    of 3 hours. While they have removed the name of the persons who could not
    accept their honour because of humility, yet they printed the names who could
    not find convenient to attend the function.

    They should have given sufficient time
    to deliver their reply to the honour they were conferred. It was expected that
    such functions boost the morale of our community to induce a number of people
    to come forward to render selfless service to our community. After vote of
    thanks and National Anthem, the audience were fed with pongals in our own
    traditional way!

    UPAMANYU.

    A Poet’s Poetry (for T A Ramesh)

    My offering to T A Ramesh

    Is to an award winning POET!

    He is going to enjoy reading this,

    I really hope… it’s from the heart!

    A poet of such degree

    Is our dear Ramesh!

    He really inspired me

    Of this I will attest!

    English not his first language

    But he writes so much

    With an artist’s challenge

    His poetry can touch!

    He writes with great wisdom

    For he understands

    His work like a prism

    Shining from his land!

    He writes of love of nature

    His people and the place

    I’d love to go to his homeland…

    … because of Ramesh’s grace!!!

    To my poet friend Ramesh

    From

    The Fate of Ancient Sourashtra Language!

    Greek, Latin, Sanskrit and Tamil are

    Top, independent world languages..!

    Prakrit is known as common man’s

    Language or formative language….;

    But Sanskrit is well made language

    Used, developed in writing classics

    Just like Greek, Latin and Tamil….!

    All well developed languages are

    Formed out of Prakrit languages!

    Maharashtri, Magathi, Goudi,

    Ladi and Sourashani are five

    Basic Prakrit languages of India!

    Sourashtra is formed out of the

    Sourashani Prakrit language….,

    Which is the central language of

    All the five basic Prakrit languages!

    Sourashtra language was believed

    To be the language of Harappa

    And Mohenjodaro civilization time

    And is also supposed to be the

    Language of Rig Veda era of India!

    Abode of Sourashtra language

    Before the independence of India was

    Flourishing in Sourashtra province;

    After independence of India it has

    Shrunk as an oasis of desert in

    The western part of Gujarat State!

    But due to Mohammedan invasions,

    Sourashtra language has gone with

    The migrating population mixing

    With Marati, Kongani, Kannada,

    Telugu and Tamil languages to the

    Southern tip of Indian peninsula…!

  • rameshta

    The Status of the Sourashtrian Community!

    “We salute to agricultural and industrial entrepreneurs;

    But we scold those who eat and enjoy pleasure uselessly!”

    This is the motto of a community that has migrated

    From the North-West to the South of Indian nation!

    Spinning and weaving thin silk like cotton cloth long….

    They had been living in the Sourashtra province of India!

    Often disturbed by the Mohammedan invasion from West,

    They decided to move to a peaceful place to do their business!

    They first moved to the North, the Centre and the South of

    India, the land of beauty and greatness that conquered invaders

    By its high culture in the world since thousands of years ago,

    In search of suitable place to settle and do their traditional job!

    Wherever they went, they earned the encomiums of all royalties

    And were welcomed to many royal families to make dresses

    Only they could make to the enjoyment of royal people in places

    Down the South of the nation and settled for many centuries now!

    Not knowing the script of the Sourashtra language they cannot

    Read and write in that language being spoken only at home

    For many centuries, they now try to rectify the long mistake

    To have their identity and pride as Sourashtrians everywhere!

  • rameshta

    Sourashtra!

    Soura is a Sanskrit term meaning flame or dawn of Sun

    And the people worshiping Sun are called as Sourashtrians!

    It is presumed that even Adi Shankara learnt the Mantra

    Called Gayathri from the Sourashtrians visiting Gujarat!

    Many Sanskrit words are coined from the basic Prakrit

    Language of Souraseni now called as Sourashtra sure!

    That language, which was in practice in Sourashtra province,

    Can be heard only among the Sourashtrians of Tamilnadu!

    It’s a miracle that an oldest language without script sure

    Is still in practice with the mixture of Aryan and Dravidian

    Languages of North and South of India in the South now!

    With the Tamil or English script, Sourashtra is being written!

    When Sanskrit, Latin and other ancient languages have extinct,

    Sourashtra language is still in use with the migrated Sourashtrians!

  • rameshta

    Limitation of Sourashtra Language!

    Great epics like Ramayana and Mahabharata

    And classics of literature were orally passed on

    From generation to generation in India before

    Sanskrit language was developed to write those

    Epics around 500 BC borrowing terms from

    Sourashtra being derived from Souraseni,

    The central Prakrit language of ancient India.

    Perhaps Sourashtra was in Devanagiri script,

    Which was not developed by Sourashtrians

    As they were in a state of panic and chaos

    When they were migrating from place to place!

    As they were ever engaged with weaving works

    They did not find time to write literary stories

    And Ideas or record their history for posterity!

    Despite those drawbacks, preserving the oldest

    Language of India as spoken language, Sourashtra

    Indeed is a miracle language in the whole world!

    Even if Devanagiri script is adopted to write all’

    In Sourashtra language, it looks bleak literature

    Will develop as it cannot be used among people

    They are moving with in a State not of their own!

  • rameshta

    The Great Migration of Sourashtrians!

    Like the exodus of Jews from Egypt to Promised Land,

    Like the ouster of Kashmir Pundits by Islamic extremists,

    Due to inevitable historical reasons, the great migration of

    Sourashtrians to South India took place around 8th century!

    Losing and leaving behind their houses, properties, valuables

    And everything to escape from the looting of Mohammedan

    Invaders from the West, Sourashtrians migrated from place

    To place relying only on their working skill as weavers ever!

    Sourashtrians are invited by Emperor Krishnadevaraya to

    Make silk dresses for Royal families in his capital in Hampi

    Near Bellary district of today after they had worked in

    Maharashtra and Karnataka States for two centuries in each!

    When the Krishnadevaraya Empire came down, Sourashtrians

    Received the patronage of Madurai Naick Kings in 16th century

    With their families settling around Thirumalai Naicker Mahal

    And the Meenakchi Temple as Royal guests to make dresses….!

    The survival, sustenance and success story of Sourashtrians is

    Quite amazing though they have not developed their script

    And maintained any record or history of their migration long

    Staying and developing places like Madurai, Trichy, Tanjore!
