Urali Gounder

Urali Gounder is the combination of the words Ur ("land") and Al ("people"), with the word "Gounder", which means "protector of the country". It denotes that the subjects are people of the land. Conceptually, it is interesting to note that thousands of places are named in the Dravidian South India and in ‘Ur’. In the Madras census report of 1891, the Urali are described as “a caste of agricultural labourers found chiefly in the districts of Madura and Trichinopoly. The word Urali means a ruler of a village. Like the Ambalakkarans, they trace their descent from one Matturaja, and the only subdivision returned by any number of mutracha. They also assert that were formerly employed as soldiers. In the Wayanad there is a section of Kurumbas called Uralikurumbas, and it is not improbable that these Urali of the Tamil country are an offshoot of the great Kurumbas race.”
