Commentary on
William Logan’s ‘Malabar Manual’
It is foretold! The torrential flow of inexorable destiny!
The doctoring and the manipulations

It is foretold! The torrential flow of inexorable destiny!


It is quite evident that this book, Malabar, does represent the thoughts, ideas and knowledge of William Logon only to a very specific percent, which is definitely less than 50 percent.

At the time this book was first written, three very powerful groups did exert their influence, access and power to make this book, a book that suits their future aims and purposes.

Before mentioning who these three entities are, I need to place on record here that I do not personally have any kind of affiliation or partiality or inclination to any caste or religion or political philosophy. My total inclination and affection slants towards the English East India Company rule and to the pristine-England that existed till the end of the 2nd World War.

However, I do understand things which the native-English cannot understand or imagine existing in this world. This is because they do not have any idea about the existence of feudal-languages and of the incredible force and power feudal language codes can exert on the physical world and on the human and animal thought processes. I personally find the native-English of yore to be extremely soft, refined, fair, naive and gullible.

These are all extremely power-erasing personality features. They could reduce any human population to positions of extreme vulnerability, when facing the onslaught of barbarian populations. However, instead of caving in, the native-English created a most formidable global nation. There is indeed a secret as to why historical events look quite paradoxical. I will explain this very clearly in this book.

Since I have placed on record my affiliation and affection, I need to mention that I do not have any rancour or malice towards any caste or religion of this subcontinent. So when I take up each item for meticulous examination, even if it seems that I am being inimical towards that entity that is not really the case. I am merely looking at the reaction of the local populations towards each other. How each one of them strove to manipulate each other in their desperation to come on top, or to establish a detachment or to claim an association.

All these mental reflexes are the handiwork of the sinister codes inside feudal languages. I will need to explain this point in great detail. Let me see how much I can do this.

Now, I am going to mention the three entities that had very specific interest in adding manipulations in the general layout and inputs in this book.

The very first entity is the Nair caste population. Their efforts in this regard are quite obvious, if one can understand that that has done this.

The second is the Christian Church representing the converted into Christianity from lower castes, who arrived into Malabar from the Travancore kingdom area. The individual known as Gundert could also be a participant on their side, either knowingly or even inadvertently.

The direct power-exertion of these two groups is more or less quite overt in this book, and detectable without much effort, if one does look for them.

The third entity is the leadership of the Ezhava caste of Travancore kingdom. They had their fifth columnists inside Malabar; particularly north Malabar, who acted like some kind of fools to arrange a platform for a population group which was desperately on the lookout for a place to raise their socially submerged heads.

From this perspective, both the above-mentioned Christian church as well as the Ezhava leadership had more or less concurrent aims.
