The Nadars have had a turbulent and colourful history. Their efforts to rise above their depressed condition assumed dramatic form in the series of escalating confrontations between the caste and its antagonists. From the breast-cloth controversy the sack of Sivakasi to the Nadar Mahajana Sangam, the Nadars` rise, encapsulating the processes of social mobility in Indian sopciety, has given rich texture to the analysis of a community in change.
