Venkataraman Madhuram family

Pithru Vargam

Father: Trichy Venkataraman [13 December 1907 -13 June 1980]
Teacher at St. Josephs, Trichy (1925 – 1967); Spent 65 years in Trichy

My father studied and worked at St. Josephs Trichy for 40 years as teacher. When he was 60 and he was retired, myself, my elder brother and my two sisters were all studying. My father lived with no insurance plan, and no land property. Eldest sister was only earning as a teacher. Even after retirement, he used to teach and earn. In our culture, people are not evaluated for what they own but how they earned it and use it. The culture that my father inculcated in me, simple and content life is the best. Working at Catholic school and still keeping his traditiona and views, “We are good in our own way, others are also good too, so live your life with others”.

We are Smartha Brahmins, who are followers of the Advaita philosophy propounded by Adi Shankara. Tamil Brahmins speak Tamil (although it is interspersed with Sanskrit words). Brahmin Tamil is highly Sanskritized sub-dialect. Tamil Brahmins culture is very much influenced and integrated with other Tamils like follow festivals like pongal and also follow only the Tamil calendar. They revere Sangam classics and divine works of Alwars and Nayanmars.

Vadama meaning "Northerners" Tamil term 'Vadakku' are a sub-sect of the Iyer community of Tamil Brahmins. They follow the Advaita philosophy propounded by Adi Shankara. A significant proportion of the Vadama community converted to Vaishnavism, and are thus believed to have given rise to the Vadagalai Iyengar community (muthina vadaman vaishnavan). There is also a "migratory view", that Vadama Brahmins are from Kashmir, migrated after after the age of the Gupta Emperors as indicated by the legend of the sage Agastya and Tolkappiyar.
Vadadesa Vadama (Vadamas of the northern country) is one type. Prominent persons are: Ramanujacharya of Sriperumbudur, C. P. Ramaswami Iyer - Dewan of Travancore, Syama Sastri of Carnatic Music, Gopalakrishna Bharathi, Muthuswamy Dikshitar, Appayya Dikshitar and nephew Neelakanta Deekshitar legendary scholars of Advaita philosophy, Swami Sivananda of Divine Life Society. Brahmins were invited by Chola kings to "chola regions". Vadamas of the Chola country are known as Choladesa Vadama.
