Gheevarugheechen and his sister were born to the 2nd
wife of Cherian Valliappan Mariamma, who the widow of Ponnu Oommachen
Muthalali of the Nellimootil family. Oommachen Muthalali sister was
the first wife of Cheriachen Valliappan.
Oommachen Muthalali was lost in a possible ship wreck and no news about him was available for more than 7 years.
In the meantime,
her husband s business partner, Nattukotta Chettiar tried to acquire
all his partners wealth by dubious means. Mariamma bravely and
astutely resisted Chettiar s attempts.
There is an
interesting story of how Mariamma cleverly defeated the Chettiar
bribed the local government officer- thahasildar- and came with him to
Mariamma s house to recover gold which Chettiar claimed was his.
Mariamma with the help of her devoted servant, made hole in the floor
in one of her rooms and buried all the gold in it. When Thahasildar
and the Chettiar arrived, Mariamma got on to a pettukattil- the low
height bed the women used in those days to deliver babies- and
pretended that she was having severe abdominal pain. The bed was just
above where gold was buried and she also had a Naripodu- wood burning
vessel- over it. Thahasildar and Chettiar searched every place except
where the gold that was buried and they found nothing. Before they
left, Mariamma secretly intimated the thahasildar to come at night and
search her well. Mariamma made sure that a gold plate was secretly left
in the well. At night Thahasildar came and took the gold plate for
himself and he no more bothered Mariamma.
According to the
custom in those days, if a husband disappeared for more than 7 years
and there was no news about him, he could be presumed dead and his wife
could remarry. There was no news about Ponnu Oommachen for more than 7
years. By this time Cherian Puthen Purackel also had become a widower.
So with the permission of the Church and the Malankara Metropolitan,
Cherian married Mariamma, the widow of his brother-in-law Oommachen.
This Mariamma was a descendent of Middle Eastern immigrants who came to
Quilon, Kerala in 825 AD with Bishop Mor Proth and Mor Sabor. There are
many who believe that the Malayalam era was started in AD 825 to
commemorate their arrival in Kollam.
