Kalpathy Village - kindling fond memories of the past

Kalpathy has been a change-agent in the lives of its residents, for over six centuries. Several of them are living away, for compelling reasons. A few manage to attend the Car Festival and other such occasions, kindling fond memories of the past.

The Village has been unique, primarily, because of its many past residents, who were scholarly in the Vedas, Rituals, Priest-craft, Astrology, Music, Teaching etc. They have left lasting impressions and a tradition we are proud of.

Memories flash back, of the Sarani Deekshitar family which performed the Soma Yaga and other major rituals, Appai Master who started the first Higher Secondary School, Institute Ganapathy and K.K.Rama Iyer, both of whom made most Village boys proficient in Stenography and Type-writing, enabling a secure and progressing career in life for them. These and many others enriched the village.

To-day, the village is comprised mostly of people who have come from elsewhere. They have been participating so actively and purposefully and ensured that our traditional values and customs are continuing, consistent with modern life-styles. The material and other support pouring in from our people, living all over the World, is also overwhelming.

The Kalpathy Grama Jana Sammoham Committee feels that it would be good if we recalled, formally, memories of these families, by honouring their living descendants. They will be invited, specially, for the Car Festival and honoured in a temple-assembly, immediately after the Deepa Aradhana at about 8 P.M on Kuthirayottam Day ( 13 November 2013).

This year, for a start, we are inviting the scholarly Saranya Deekshitar family. The family descendants Sri.K.S.Viswanathan and Sri.K.S.Venkataramani have agreed to come.
