E.V.Ramasami respectfully addressed as Periyar (the great) was born on 17th September 1879 with a silver spoon to a wholesale trader at Erode, a town in Tamil Nadu. He was a school dropout but acquired efficiency and unalloyed wisdom. With his extra cute and rationalist ideology, he started ridiculing the ghosts, goblins, and gods.
He found out that humans alone are not only responsible in creating their our gods but also enslaving themselves to their creation. The result superstitions, rituals, religious killings, social injustices, women enslavement, untouchability, deprivation of education and unemployment to the lower rungs, heinous hegemony of the Brahmins in the Hindu caste system. As god is the root cause for these evils ‘rout god’ was his war cry. He felt that unless and until god is abandoned, liberty, equality, and fraternity will have no meaning at all.
