LORD OF VAIKOM

The woman approached other Marar families and requested them to take over the function. But they refused unless they were given permanent rights, which the woman did not want to part with. She could not sleep that night and she was tossing on her bed, thinking and worrying. In this state she heard an incorporeal voice urging her not to worry but go ahead and do the drumming herself.

Thus she took up the position during the utsavabali the next day. But her drumming was so fast and yet so perfect that the Tantri could not keep pace with her. Not only that, the percussion was so loud that it aroused the temple spirits which approached the terrified Tantri with open mouths for offerings.

It was at this juncture the Mattappalli Tantri appeared on the scene. The hapless Mokkattu Tantri requested him to help and the latter completed the function successfully. It was thus that Vaikom came to -have the two Tantris. The Puthusseri family members are still the official drummers.
