    Tanjore the cultural and religious headquarters of southern India with innumerable temples witnessed on ironical event of the birthday celebrations of Mr. E.V.R. Naicker, (E.V. Ramaswamy Naicker) founder of the Dravida Kazagam (Dravida Association), who is strongly opposed to Castism and recently said that the Brahmins must be killed causing great concern of Government and Public as per reports (of newspapers) enclosed herewith.

    On the 80th birthday of Mr. Naicker which happened on 3rd November, 1957 the Dravida Kazhagam organized a special conference to deliberate on their leaders advice. To celebrate the event, Mr. Naicker was taken in procession through the streets of Tanjore in which the local people and those from various places of the state participated. In the afternoon the conference was held and a number of resolutions were passed. The highlight of the day was the Tula Dan in which the Dravida leader was weighed in scales against silver coins worth eight thousand rupees in balance. It was feared that something untoward might happen on the occasion but the day went on smoothly.
