Diarists of Tamilnadu : Pondicherry during French Rule
Ananda Ranga Pillai,
Maria Das Pillai :
Thanks Mumbai Mirror site
article in Indian Literature, a Sahitya Akademi journal,
on Tamilians who kept diaries and commented on politics, wars,
deaths, marriages, natural calamities, society, culture and the
economy in the 18th century in Pondicherry.
The author of the article, S Jeyaseela Stephen, has translated
some of these diaries and he gives us a number of interesting
facts. He also mentions other writers of the period who were
influenced by the French, among them Maria Das Pillai who knew
Tamil, Sanskrit and French, and translated the Bhavagata Purana
from Sanskrit to French in the 18th century.
Guruvappa Pillai is considered the first of these diarists. He
travelled to France via England to get justice for his father
who had been wrongly imprisoned. In France, he became a
Christian in 1720 and his baptism took place in the palace of
King Louis XV. The King himself was his godfather, and the
convert?s name became Charles Philippe Gourouvapa. He was
appointed head of the Indian subjects at Pondicherry when he
returned in 1722. Guruvappa?s first cousin Ananda Ranga
Pillai, and Ananda?s younger brother, also maintained
diaries and the latter recorded events during the siege of
Madras by the French in 1746.

Welcome all percussion lovers to the
community of the greatest mridangist that india has
ever produced. A person who used to concentrate only
in intricate laya patterns during the early stages
of his career. But thanks to the redoutable chembai
who first brought out the aesthetism which was
within him. From the forties his way of accompaning
totally changed. The new palani was an epitome of
grace and his gumki is still unmatched by any
mridangist till date and would put the best of
tablists to just stop playing and wonder in
amazement. Curse the cruel fate which snatched him
in his fifties otherwise we would be fortunate
enough to have more recordings of his especially for
gnb & madurai mani iyer, both of whom brought out of
him the best sarvalaghu patterns. The thani for
g.n.b's concert under the auspicies of all india
radio for brocheva is still raved by his rasikas and
musicians. I invite each one of u to share more
thoughts about this great percussionist.
thanks to :
His capital Sendamangalam
is also stated in the same prasasti
to have been protected by strong fortification. He was
served by a faithful band of warriors, chief among whom were
alias Perumal-Pillai of Arasur, the latter?s younger
and Pillaiyar Nilagangaraiyar. read
