    கண்ணகி என்ற ஒரு கற்பு இயந்திரம்.


    0 Not allowed!
    சிலப்பதிகாரத்தைப் பற்றி ஒரு மிகப் பெரிய தமிழ்ப் பேராசிரியர் எழுதிய கட்டுரை ஒன்றை மாணவர்களுக்குச் சொல்லிக் கொடுக்கும்படியான சோதனை எனக்கு ஒரு தடவை ஏற்பட்டது. அவர் எழுதியிருந்தார்: 'கண்ணகி பழங்குடிமகளிர் வழி வந்த பச்சைத் தமிழ்ப்பெண். மழலைப் பருவத்திலேயே தமிழிப் பண்பாம் கற்பு நெறி உணர்ந்த பொற்பின் செல்வி. எல்லாக் கலைகளிலும் தேர்ச்சி பெற்ற ஆரணங்கு..... '

    'மழலைப் பருவத்திலேயே தமிழ்ப் பண்பாம் கற்புநெறி உணர்ந்த பொற்பின் செல்வி ' என்ற வரிதான் எனக்கு மிகவும் தொந்தரவு கொடுத்தது. பச்சைத் தமிழ்ப் பெண் குழ்ந்தைக்கு மழலைப்பருவத்திலேயே கற்பைக் காப்பாற்றிக் கொள்ள வேண்டும் என்ற எண்ணம் ஏற்பட்டால், ஃப்ராய்ட் இதைப்பற்றி என்ன சொல்லுவார் என்று சிந்தித்துப் பார்த்தேன்.... மேலும் கற்பைக் காப்பாற்றிக் கொள்ள அக்குழந்தை என்ன நடவடிக்கை மேற்கொள்ள முடியும் ? இருபத்திநாலு மணி நேரமும் ஜட்டியைக் கழற்றாமலிருக்கலாம். கண்ணகி காலத்தில் ஜட்டி இல்லை என்றால், அரசியலை தவறிப்போய்க்கூட ஒதுங்கக் கூடாது என்று கவனமாக இருக்கலாம்.... நான் என் சிந்தனையை மாணவர்களுடன் பகிர்ந்து கொண்டபோது, அவர்கள் சிரித்ததுதான். பழைய இலக்கியங்களைப் பற்றித் தமிழ்ப் 'பைத்தியக்காரத்தனம் ' ஏதுமில்லாமல், நல்ல இலக்கியக் கட்டுரைகள் எழுதினால், இதற்கு வரவேற்பு இருக்கலாம் என்ற நம்பிக்கை எனக்கு ஏற்படக் காரணமாயிற்று.

    Being a tamil teacher having to undertake to lecture on silappadikaram to modern boys and girls could be a demanding exercise.

    Having known of EEPA and his ways[he was a tamil teacher in my tamil school in delhi], it should not have been a pleasant task for him

    Most of his novels have been controversial for one reason or the other.

    He was awarded Padmashri for his works in tamil some years back.

    Indira Parthasarathy is a gifted writer. His writings are refreshingly modern and bold. Some would call this controversial. I have read his novels. He was a leftist intellectual like my another favourite writer Jayakanthan. I like Parthasarathy's works. When he wrote about the Kilvenmony massacre in one of his novels, it made several people sit up and take note. Because people who knew the caste conflicts in TN only in the binary logic of brahmins and non brahmins were made to take note of the more dangerous and more vicious dalit agri labour versus the village land owner middle castes conflicts.

    The OP is interesting to read. It gives a different interpretation of the contents of Silappathikaram. I enjoyed reading it. There is substance in this new interpretation of Silappathikaram.

    By the way EEPA is a tamil vaishnavite brahmin.He has spent years away from tamilnadu in delhi and abroad

    His writings are typical of brahmin writers of fiftees and early sixties untainted by dravidian thought.

    His language is also brahminical reflecting the thinking and way of life of brahmin families exposed to modern living of those days.

    Many brahmins seeing the hypocrisy of their own caste in religeous/caste matters became wedded to leftist ideology. His staying in socialist leaning atmosphere of

    delhi with Nehru promoting it vigorously drew many youngsters like him to it.

    I had the privilege of listening to his stories besides even watching school plays he had put up as tamil teacher with students as cast depicting his view of kannagi and

    silappadikaram. Very interesting human being.

    And many brahmins who continued to grow with their thought processes, came out of the leftist ideology at some point of time after understanding the superior wisdom in their religion. Those who were stuck with the leftist ideology died as leftist intellectuals. Like Nehru. LOL.

    The lesson which stares at the common man without any "leanings" is that both the leftist leaner and the superior wisdom religionist die and vanish without any trace!

    In the final reckoning life is a zero!!

    Did you see his play Aurangazeb - How Aurangazeb character projected - Today Aurangazeb road becomes APJ Abdul Kalam Road - You think he would approve such acts? I think his Ramanujar is done with conviction rather than for conveniance like the one that is on TV now with election in Mind.

    Mr. Parthasarathy told The Hindu that his play was a psychological study of Aurangzeb and not a political analysis of his reign. “The play explores why Aurangzeb turned against his father. He was fond of music and Sufism as a child. The play depicts incidents that led to his alienation from his father and Dara… The play shows how he used emotional and religious slogans like a politician, even though he gave endowments to temples.”

    மேலும் கற்பைக் காப்பாற்றிக் கொள்ள அக்குழந்தை என்ன நடவடிக்கை மேற்கொள்ள முடியும் ? இருபத்திநாலு மணி நேரமும் ஜட்டியைக் கழற்றாமலிருக்கலாம்...
    This comment seems to be rubbish, though the author is an excellent writer!

    It is said that girl children should not be touched by any male, including her father, when she reaches the age of 5.

    And, usually girl children are always accompanied by one of her parents to provide safety to her.

    When a video comes in FB about teaching 'Good and bad touches to children', it will be appreciated!

    But, when kaRpu neRi is given credit by Tamil authors, people are ready to make fun of them! So sad!!

    RRji,

    I think you have misinterpreted by pulling out just two lines away from the context.

    The context is this:

    "அவர்(அந்தப் பேராசிரியர்) எழுதியிருந்தார்: 'கண்ணகி பழங்குடிமகளிர் வழி வந்த பச்சைத் தமிழ்ப்பெண். மழலைப் பருவத்திலேயே தமிழ்ப் பண்பாம் கற்பு நெறி உணர்ந்த பொற்பின் செல்வி. எல்லாக் கலைகளிலும் தேர்ச்சி பெற்ற ஆரணங்கு..... ' "

    அது என்ன பச்சைத்தமிழ்ப்பெண்? தமிழ்ப்பெண்களுக்குள்ளும் பச்சைகளுக்கு மட்டும் தான் கற்பின் பெருமை நன்கு தெரியும் போலும். மற்றைச்சிவப்பு, கருப்பு, வெள்ளை, ஊதாக்களுக்கு அதெல்லாம் தெரியாது போலும். அந்த வார்த்தைக்குப்பின்னால் இருக்கிறது மனதில் ஏற்றிக்கொண்டிருக்கும் ஏராளமான வெறுப்பும் காழ்ப்பும். சரி அதை விடுங்கள்.

    அது எப்படி மழலைப்பருவத்திலேயே கற்பு நெறி பற்றி அந்த மழலை தெரிந்துவைத்திருக்க முடியும்? கற்பு என்ன சாக்கலேட்டா இல்லை ஜவ்வு மிட்டாயா?

    அது என்னாய்யா அது "தமிழ்ப்பண்பாம் கற்பு நெறி"? தெலுங்கர் பண்பு, கன்னடிகர் பண்பு, மலயாளிகள் பண்பிலெல்லாம் கற்புக்கு இடமில்லையா? open house ஆ என்ன?

    கண்ணகி கற்பின் பெருமை உணர்ந்திருந்தாள்/இல்லை என்பது இங்கு வாதமல்ல.

    ஏதோ பிறக்கும் தமிழ்க் குழந்தைகளெல்லாமே கற்பை அறிந்து பிறப்பது போலவும், பிறக்கும் போதே, தாயின் வயிற்றிலிருந்து வெளிவரும் போதே "ஆண் வைத்தியரை வெளியேபோகச்சொல்லுங்கள். இல்லாவிட்டால் வெளியே வரமாட்டேன்" என்று சொல்வது போலவும் பெருமை பீற்றிக்கொள்வது முட்டாள்தனமாக இல்லையா?

    இதைத்தான் இந்திரா பார்த்தசாரதியும் சொல்லியிருக்கிறார்.
