This advice was given when Gurudevan chaired the great convention of Pulaya at Muttathara, Thiruvananthapuram. The great leaders like Ayyankaali were present on the occasion.“All human are of one caste. Amongst them there is difference of status only and not of caste. Some people may have more money, education, while some others less. Some are fairly complexioned while others are not. Such are the only difference amongst the people and not caste difference. Right now, the Pulayas lack a great deal of wealth and education which are required to be created. Education is more important. Education leads to wealth, efficiency et al. It is false to say that you do not have wealth. You yourselves are wealth. You all work and earn everyday and spend on drinks. Saving a portion of it will make you to educate your children.
You can achieve many things without help from others. You should convene every month and make future plans. Consuming liquor needs to be stopped. Children should not be allowed to drink liquor; and the elders too should change. The monthly convention should insist on stopping drinking. Others definitely will support you. I look forward to meet you again.”
