SRIVILLIPUTHUR

Bhoo is the next lady lieutenant to Sri and holds sway over the material universe. Nila, another sub-regent, rules over the material system (the Brahmanda). This Nila takes birth as the daughter of Kumbha or Nagnajit and becomes the consort of Sri Krishna when Vishnu assumes that avatar. This Nagnajiti is called by the Dravidians Nappinnai, meaning 'beautifully-tressed' and she is almost identified with Nilaas thebenedictory verse of Andal's Tiruppavai will testify. It may be said that Nila Nagnajiti rules over earth and Andal descends from
Bhoo and presides over the hearts of the Vaishnavites in South India in Srivilliputhur, in Ramnad District. 

Another account states that Kumbha, the brother of Yasoda, had two daughters, one Sridhamma and the other Nila or Nappinnai.  It is necessary to clarify what these three female divinities, Sri, Bhoo and Nila represent.
