    hi hello,

    can you please tell us a bit about yourself. you are approaching a subject with various possible viewpoints, judging from the philosphical outlook of folks from here.

    it might be of use to you, to tell us what you are, and what you wish to be, why you want this question to be answered in this forum and what you intent to make of it.

    i can ofcourse understand that this query might be one of esoteric curiosity. just like imagining what would have happened to this world, had not the apple not fallen on newton's head but on his shoulders!!

    there may be some members here, who feel ownership to the process of upanayanam and consider it a sole prerogative of the brahmins. others may look at this cross belt more eclectically, and desire it to be worn, on anyone who is of sincere thought to study the adages of hinduism with seriousness and with effort. which is why, i wish you to let us know of your own antecedents and expectations.

    i am quite sure, that you are not one of those 'one time visitors', provoking the crowd here with a tantalising question, sitting aside and watching the ensuing fish-market quarrel.

    please let us know..thanks.

    Hello tbs,
    Thanks for your valuable comment.
    I just had a doubt. Thought the scholars of this forum would clear it. I didn't really thought in such a crucial way. Actually Chettiayars falls under 'kshatriya'.
    Could you pls tell me why should this situation provoke to a quarrel?
    Is there any wrong in my query? could you pls clear it?

    Hi kunjuppu,
    Thanks for your valuable comment.
    I just want to clarify my doubt thats all I have in my mind.
    I didn't thought abt quarrel or something else.

    My intention is to know whether Chettiyar Bachelors can wear Poonal.
    Why asked because many Chettiyars are strict veg and they do follow all the rituals as like brahmins.
    Also I saw some ppl wearning Poonal after marriage. But I didnt heared abt the Upanyanam for them. Thats
    why I asked this question.

    Could you pls tell me whats wrong with my question?

    It will be better if you approach some elder members of the community you are referring to, to get your doubt clarified. Why should someone here speak on their behalf?

    Hello Hello,

    Sri.Pannvalan is right. I too think, you should direct your enquiry to the elders of the Chettiar community. They would know the traditions much better than any of the caste brahmin members here. Wish you all the best.

    Cheers!
