nov 12th, 1936: Temple Entry Proclamation in Travancore

nov 11th, 2010

an extremely important event that showed how reform can come to hinduism, and to india, without violent revolution. 

on that day, the enlightened maharajah of travancore threw open all temples to all hindus regardless of caste.

a great deal of the progress and self-confidence people in kerala have enjoyed is due to this single event.

on this 74th anniversary, i salute the maharajah sri chithira thirunal balarama varma and his wise mantri, sir cp ramaswamy iyer.
