ACK-079 : Tachcholi Othenan

An out of print ACK #109

Thacholi Meppayil Kunjhu Othenan (Udayana Kurup of Thacholi Manikoth House) or more popularly Thacholi Othenan or Tachcholi Othenan was the legendary hero of North Kerala, who is thought to have lived 500 years ago. He was born in the family of ‘Manikkoth’ in Thacholi, near Vadakara, located 48 km north of Kozhikode. Highly stylised songs and stories of his valour and chivalry abound. His real name was Udayana Kurup. He is praised about in vadakkanpattu (ballads of North Kerala).

Othenan was known for his dignified and fearless behavior even when he was a boy. He was a very helpful friend to all, but merciless to enemies. He was respected by all, including the Zamorin of Calicut. He defeated Mathiloor Gurukkal, martial art expert, and killed him. Othenan, the legendary warrior of Kerala, was killed at the tender age of 32 by one of the Gurukkal’s disciples.

Thacholi Manikkoth, the kalari center, where Thacholi Othenan practiced Kalaripayattu is a place worth visiting. Thacholi Manikkoth Temple, dedicated to Thacholi Othenan, situated in Vadakara, organizes a martial arts festival during March or April, which draws a large number of people from far and near.

Sridhar said...

even as a kid, i despised this character.. seemed to be a fight-monger; don't see an iota of valour/chivalry in any of what he did, at least not from what I've read about him (both through the ACK and other sources)

But thanks as always Prabhat for the ACK :-)

error "This file is currently set to private. If this problem persists or you need further assistance, contact support."

I think this is the problem :

For free accounts, there is currently no time limit on how long uploaded files will be stored as long as you access your account (i.e. login to your account) at least once every 60 days OR at least one of your files is accessed (i.e. downloaded) every 30 days.

Please help.

Hi,

Thanks for the books. I used to have whole lot of books back home but not anymore. Maybe when I go back, I can scan some.
Some of the books are set to private when trying to read/download it. Can we do something about it?
Thanks again!
