uthama chola and sendan amudhan

October 16, 2008

a novel that was read and re read over half a century develops a aura around itself and along with it arise many pet theories

kalki was not a history writer. he was a writer of fiction. he asserted his right by  making a flower boy the real heir to the throne. it was often considered his masterpiece so reminescent of his favourite french authors. the true heir hidden amongst the masses by a quirk of fate.

it was widely beleived that Initially Senthan Amudhan was not intended to be converted to Mathuranthaka by Kalki. The reasons for this sudden change of mind on Kalki’s side is explained by  somebody who was close enough to have observed it.
Kalki’s son Mr.Rajendran narrated the exact incident as wrote:
One day Kalki was doing Yogasana, every morning he had the habit of doing that. (Remember that Yogacharya Sundaram’s widely acclaimed series on Yoga featured as a series in Kalki in those days.) And it was boy Rajendran’s duty, every day to count numbers for his father when he was doing Sirasasanam, a posture of standing upside down!

On the given day after recovering from asana posture Kalki suddenly asked the boy : Senthan Amudhan|Senthan AmudhanayeRaja Aakki vittal enna ? (Why not make Sendhan Amudhan a king ?)

could this be true.???????

kalki in ponniyin selvan never wrote about a needless charecter. each had its role to play.

here are some likely evidences that point otherwise.

A M U TH- A is an anagram of  U- TH- A -M A

pungkuzhali always insists she will marry an emperor only. none but kalki knew that senthan amudhan would succeed in marrying her at the end.

the favourite song that amudhan sings is about the mazhapaadi temple- ponnaar meniyanE…..  a temple of mathuranthaka’s maternal kingdom malpaadi. a temple that is always associated with uthama sola.
