Vettuvan refers to a branch (khilai) of the sub-caste named Thennang (representing a tree or kothu: the Cocoanut) among the Maravans. The Maravan people represent a Dravidian tribe that claim descent from Guha or Kuha, Rama’s boatman, who rowed him across to Ceylon.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages.
