Aryans in South India
As early as 600 BC the Aryans of North India during their exploratory travels down south of the Vindhyas decided to settle in the area known today as South India. The Process of cross cultural fertilisation and interminglign with the original inhabitants resulted in the birth of the Nambudiris, a high caste community found largely in Kerala State. Against the backdrop of the Aryan drama is traced the history, social structure and culture of the Nambudiris; also their inestimable valuable contributions to Hindu civilization and culture. Concerned largely with the birth, rise, decline and rise all over again of the Nambudiris, this honest and dispassionate study by a Nambudhiri himself, traces lucidly their unique social divisions, their important and valuable contributions to religion, literature and language and their pioneering promotion of the Indian system of medicine.
