Krishnaswamy Iyengar. Puttur, Trichi. He has also mentioned who are saaththaadha mudhalis and who are saaththina mudhalis. However, followers/descendents of the saathinavar are sometimes saaththaadhavar and vice versa. (example kandhaadai aandaan). So it is somewhat irrelavant. Of these I have met people who are decendents of nadaadhoor, settaloor (Setlur, in Hebbar Iyengars), embaar, Kidaambi (kadami/kiLambi, my mother's side), eechambaadi, naallan (chakravarthy, Rajaji, Actress Hemamalini), aasoori (in Mandyam Iyengars), mudumbai nambi/ammaaL (my father's side), vangeepuram and ilayavilli. All these were saaththina mudhalis. I suppose that many decendents of saaththaadha mudhalis dropped the titles sometime. I doubt if anybody is still carrying the lastname/title of matronRillaa maaruthicciRiyaandaan or kaattup piLLaan :-). K. Srinivasan Incidentally, I found that he has published lots of interesting books, (all in Tamil). The Tamil alphabets are annotated by the suffixes, 2, 3 and 4, to obtain the required Sanskrit sounds. If any of you visit Trichy, it will be worth a visit to his house and press in puththoor agraharam Trichy. You can mention my name, (He won't give you a discount!). Srinivasan K.
