Madha Assumptions

*********************************************************
Madha Parameshwari and Olega Madha
********************************************

Besides a Kula Deivam every family clan will have a separate Madha Samy and a separate pooja for the same once in a year.This custom is also a unique aone and we can find only among virudhanagar Hindu Nadar families. There are only assumption for the celebration of Madha samy pooja . we don't know the reason for madha samy when there is already a kula deivam.

*********************************************************
Assumption 1:
********************************************

As we have seen above it is the custom of having a family deity for each family as far as virudhanagar hindu Nadars are concerned. At the same time two or more family clans shal also have the same deity as their family god. So by keeping the same family god for them each different family clan may have a separate Madha samy for their own.

*********************************************************
Assumption 2:
********************************************

Some family clans may have male deity as their family god .to compensate this they may have a female deity as a matha samy.
 
*********************************************************
Assumption 3:
********************************************

In the celebration of family deity married male members of the family are considered as separate thalaikattus and they are given then much importance during that time. Since our's is a paternal oriented society, where female members, married or yet to marry, are of no importance . so to make them to feel importance and to make active participation of such female members the custom of madha deivam would have evolved. Since in celebrating madha deivam female members are given the front position. At the time of pooja the married female ie daughters with their husbands are the special invitees. The daughter in-law of the family, the daughter married and yet to marry, are all will be provided with new cloths. We can assume that Madha pooja is more or less a way of showing gratitude to the female members of the family.since they are the one who give birth to new life by this adding new baby members to the family.
