Ritual, Caste, and Religion in Colonial South India

Otto Harrassowitz Verlag, 2010 - Religion - 386 pages
The volume "Ritual, Caste, and Religion in Colonial South Asia" edited by Michael Bergunder, Heiko Frese, and Ulrike Schroder focuses on South India during the colonial period in the 19th and 20th century. The study's purpose is to explore the impact that notions of ritual, caste, and religion had on Indian society during the time. The various authors give detailed analyses of Tamil and Telugu sources, emphasizing the historical background by accenting the newly established print media of the time. They show how these concepts played a crucial role in the formation of social, cultural, and religious identities, and with this vitally contribute to the history of colonisation in India.

Nattar (Not Nadar) , Nadalvan are administrative titles only this has got nothing to do with the present days nadar or the shanna's or the so called shandalan's, this titles were given to many castes in tamilnadu i.e Vellalar, Mukholathor, Palli, even some pulayars were given this title, hence it is totally wrong or irrelevant to claim the Nattar and Nadalvan as shannar's
