Abstract
Whenever Cheraman Perumal's sword appeared in the Zamorin's mammoth box and was snatched from its scabbard, all the while the suicide bombers were stabbing the fat crowd on the west side of the walk - just to stab at the sharp lance head of the Nair army guarding the Zamorin, wrote William Logan in his work Malabar (1879). Mamangam has a great role in the history of Kerala. It is not only a tale in which Valluvanad Konathiri’s spies gains brave death from the Zamorin’s army, but also an ancient festival in which people from all around the world reaches Thirunavaya, a place in Thrissur to see the performance of Keralite traditional artists, happens once in every twelve years. The paper titled “Mamangam: History, Culture and Myth of an Era in Kerala” is a study on the great Meghamasa Magham or Mahamagam - a festival enriched with bravery, hope, pain, power, and vengeance in Kerala.
