தோற்றம்:

வன்னியர் என்ற சொல் "வன்மை" என்ற தமிழ் சொல்லிலிருந்து தோன்றியதாக கருதப்படுகிறது.வன்மை என்ற சொல்லுக்கு 'வலிமை நிறைந்த' என்பது பொருளாகும்.வன்னியர் என்னும் சொல்லுக்கு நெருப்பிலிருந்து பிறந்தவர்கள் என்றும் வன்னி மரங்கள் அடர்ந்த பகுதிகளில் ஆட்சி செய்தவர்கள் என்றும் இரு வேறு விதமான கருத்துக்கள் நிலவுகின்றன. வன்னியர்கள் தென்னிந்தியாவில் பெரும்பாலும் அதிகமாக காணப்படுகின்றனர்.இவர்கள் ஆரியர் அல்லாத திராவிடர் இனத்தை சேர்ந்தவர்களாவர்.ஆந்திரா மற்றும் கர்னாடகாவில் இவர்கள் அக்னிவம்சி என்றும் அழைக்கப்படுகின்றனர்.


சீர்காழி வைத்தீஸ்வரர் கோவில் வளாகத்தில் காணப்படும் கல்வெட்டுகள் கீழ்கண்ட செய்திகளை தெரிவிக்கின்றன: புராணகாலத்தில் அசுரர்களான வாதாபி,மஹி என்பர்கள் பிரம்மனை நோக்கி தவம் செய்து சாகாவரம் பெற்று உலகையே துன்புறுத்தி,கொடுஞ்செயல்கள் செய்து வந்தனர்.அவர்களை அழிக்க வேண்டி ஜம்பு மகாமுனி ஒரு யாகம் செய்தார்.அப்போது அந்த யாககுண்ட நெருப்பிலிருந்து வாளுடன் தோன்றிய வீரனொருவன் அந்த அசுரர்களை அழித்தான்.அவனின் வழிதோன்றல்கள் வன்னியராவர். இந்த வம்சத்தில் தோன்றிய ருத்ர வன்னிய மாகாராஜா தென்னிந்தியாவை ஆட்சி செய்தான்

திருவள்ளுவர் காலத்தை சேர்ந்த கல்லாடம் என்ற நூலில் வன்னி என்ற சொல் அரசன் என்ற பதத்தை குறிக்க பயன்படுத்த் ப்ட்டிருப்பது குறிப்பிட தகுந்த ஒன்றாகும்.

வரலாற்று நோக்கில் வன்னியர்:

படையாச்சி,கவுண்டர்,நாயக்கர்,சம்புவரையர்,காடவராயர்,காலிங்கராயர்,மழவரையர்,உடையார்,சோழிங்கர், போன்ற சாதியினர் வன்னியரின் உட்பிரிவுகளாக கூறப்படுகின்றனர். வன்னியர்கள் பல்லவ வம்சத்தை சேர்ந்த்தவர்கள் என்றும் பரவலாக கருதப்படுகிறது. ஆதாரம் இந்த கருத்தை உறுதியாக்கும் வகையில் பல‌ சரித்திர ஆதாரங்கள் கிடைத்துள்ளன. இலங்கையின் பல பகுதிகள் வன்னியர்களாலும்,வன்னியச்சிகளாலும் ஆட்சி செய்யப்பட்டது. வன்னியர்களின் அடையாளமாக வன்னி மரம் கருதப்படுகிறது.

History

The Vanniyars known as Pallis became soldiers and commanders during the medieval Pallava rule came to be known as Padayatchis.[1] Padayatchi also were known to possess an army of their own and this is evident from the inscriptions mentioning some pallis as "Nalyayiravan" (head of an army consisting of 4000 soldiers). Some Padayatchis retained their rule as chieftains and Poligars after the downfall of the Tamil kings.[2]

The Kachirayars of Vilandai and Mukasa parur are related to padayatchis. Only the Padayatchis have different caste titles. Vanniya Gounders or Vanniya Nayakars were known to have "Gounder" and "Nayakar" title respectively.

Some Padayatchis in Vallambadugai near Chidambaram have the caste title "vanatharayar" which is sometimes attributed to their root from Vaanar Kulam. Note that in the history based novel Ponniyin Selvan by Kalki, Vandhiyathevan is described to be an offspring of Vaanar. In a village called Vatharayanthethu near the Chidambaram town we find Padayatchis with titles like Gnaniyar, Pidariyar, Thondavarayar. Some Padayatchis in Chidambaram area have the caste title Padayandavar. Notable among them include Devadas Padayandavar who is an Ex-MLA from Chidambaram. Some Padayatchis in Buthangudi village near Sethiyathope were known as sethiyars.[3]. In the southern districts of Tamilnadu like Tirunelveli, Nagercoil the Paravars are also using the title Padayatchiers.

Padayatchis in turn use different titles such as Udayar, Thevar, Nainar, Pidariyar including Padayatchi title, which proves that they form a separate class. In the denotified list they are not mentioned as Vanniyars but Padayatchis which proves that it is more than a caste title. Nowhere in the Tamil Nadu backward classes list will you find the name Padayatchi among the non-Vanniyars. Most of the caste titles of the Vanniyars belong to the Padayatchis. If Padayatchi is merely a caste title then why do they use another title? They form a section among the Vanniyars.

Most of the Vanniyar Poligars (Palayakarar) were related to Padayatchis. There is a book called "padayatchi Pattapeyar Manjari" which mentions the different caste titles used by the Padayatchis. So when we say Padayatchi it naturally refers to a Vanniyar. Also a book called "sasana Tamil Manjari" refers to padayatchis. When the Chola rule started to decline the army commanders and ministers took the administration and formed their own rule. See the content of the book with the line "sanjala saritha naatinar manthirikumarar Padayatchigal". It may be a caste title to some other communities but it is a class and also a title for Vanniyars.

The life of the great Kadava ruler Kopperunjinga[4] is a good example for this proverb. They were hunters during ancient times and became land owners and farmers only after they became soldiers and commanders.[5]

A kadavaraya inscription found in Srimushnam in South Arcot registers remission of padikaval and other levies due to the donor from the devadana lands, for worship to the god at Tirumuttam in Vilandai-kurram, a subdivision of Merka-nadu Irungolappadi in Virudarajabhayankara-valanadu by Alappirandan Elisaimogan alias Kulottungasolak-Kadavarayan, a Palli having the kani-right in Urumur alias Solapandya-chaturvedimangalam alias Erumbur, for the merit of himself and his family.

This is the caste name of Vanniya kula Kshatriyas. Though this one is found as a title in some other castes too "Padayatchi" aptly refers to a large population of the Vanniyar or Palli Caste. In many parts of Tamil Nadu it is only the Vanniyars who were mentioned and called as Padayatchis.

Known divisions among Padayatchis

The Padayatchis had some internal divisions too which is not found among the rest of the Vanniyar caste. Some divisions are: Arasu, Pandal, Anju Naal,Kandar, and Panirendu naal.Jayamkondar angarayar kaggayam sub division name in vattathur village ie 20 km chidhambaram it is not sub caste,its like kuttam in kongu villala caste ie with in the division peoples are brothers and sisters

The distinct difference for padaiyatchi is that they have separate god for their clan("kula deivam") like warrior gods like karrupu , muniswamy,iyannar. One of the very important Kula deivam of Vallampadugai Padayatchi is Arulmigu Angala Parameswari. In Cuddalore ,Pondicherry area important Kula deivam for Padayaatchi is Arulmigu Muttaala Amman. Some other Kula Deivams of Padayatchi Caste are Periyandichi (Female God), periandavar (Male God), Muniyappan.

Padayatchi today

In some places like Ariyalur and in parts of Tanjore districts the Padayatchis still have marriage relations with Padayatchis only. Nowadays Padayatchis are found to marry among other Vanniyar divisions too. In Panruti taluk of cuddalore dist vanniyars called as padayatchi,they have surnames as sempirayar, samarthiyaar,thennavaraya,mazhavarayar, nayinaar etc here. This is because of the fact that all belong to one (Palli or Vanniyar) caste. They are now rapidly progressing. In politics too they have a significant role.
