ARANMULA PARTHASARATHI

 

THE SNAKE BOAT RACE

Incidentally, this Tiruvanchilavu Thoni taking materials to Aranmula became instrumental in conducting the snake-boat race held every year with great éclat attracting lacks of persons from far and near. It sprang up oddly enough from the bloody rivalry existing between two warring cheiftains of this region. Once it appears the chieftain of Ayiroor faction decided to take revenge upon his enemy, the chieftain of Ranni by intercepting the boat carrying the traditional sacred materials for the annual festival, according to the wish of that venerable Nambudri whom God blessed after receiving athithya. 

When the news of thwarting by Ayroor chieftain reached the men of Ranni chieftain, they made elaborate plans and went with men enough in big snake boats to beat down the wicked enemy, if intercepted.
