About Sourashtra/Palkar Community

January 8, 2009 |

Sourashtra or “Sourashtras” refer to a community of people who originated from Gujarat and now settled in different parts of Tamilnadu.  They are also called as Palkars or in Tamil as Pattunulkarars which refers to the silk thread workers.

Sourashtrians are a glorious community who reside in and around India and speak Sourashtra as their mother tongue. Generally speaking, these people are adepts in Weaving cotton and silk fabrics. Quite a large number of Sourashtrians have gone down in the history of Indian Independence owing to their patriotic fervor.

Reference to Sourashtrians in the ancient epics and puranas of India are legion. The history of the early 56 countries tells us how Sourashtrians have made themselves a glorious community. The “Sourashtrians Raga” has a unique place among the “Mangala Ragas” of Carnatic Music. The names of Sourashtram and Somanathapuram find a distinct place in the history text books of schools, especially in the political maps of the regions of Ashoka, Kanishka, Gupta Harsha, Gajini Mohammed etc.

    Sir,
    Our fore-fathers, though they could not educated themself and less income made valuable contribution to our Community by constructing choultries right from Rameswaram to Varanashi. We can see them almost in all Districts. It was a history of the past. During those periods the heirs of our forefathers neither educated nor employed in aborad. Today we see every one of our family members qualified well and working in aborad and earling well. But the maintenance of such choultry are disappeard. The so called leaders of our Association should think in depth and workout a plan as to how we should continue such kind of service to our community. Because we never brought anything from heaven and never take anything while we leave this world. So service to our community is essential. Inter-caste marriage shall not be allowed at any cost.
