Thunchaththu Ramanujan Ezhuthachan Bio


Thunchaththu Ramanujan Ezhuthachan (Malayalam: തുഞ്ചത്തു രാമാനുജന്‍ എഴുത്തച്ഛന്‍) is considered as the Father of the Malayalam language, because of his devotion to the language, his influence on the acceptance of the Malayalam alphabet, and his extremely popular poetic works in Malayalam. He was born in the 17th century in Tirur, which is within the Malappuram district of the state of Kerala ( in South India). His true name is unknown. He is alternatively known as Thunjath Ramanujan Ezhuthachan or sometimes simply Ramanujan, but most often simply as Ezhuthachan. "Ezhuthachan" is a titled bestowed upon a great male teacher or schoolmaster(Ezhuthamma - female counterpart). It is also the name of a caste in old India, the Ezhuthachan (or sometimes Kaduppattan) "...[T]he phrase ‘father of language’ is a symbolic reference. Language represents culture. So Ezhuthachan is in fact denoting culture. He shone as a brilliant star above our culture. He renovated the alphabets of heart. We see the light of conscience and moderation in Ezhuthachan. We call him ‘the father of Malayalam language’ because he led the language to a new dimension." - Chattanath Achuthanunni Chair Thunjan Festival meeting (1998 )
