Agriculture played an important part in the economic life of the Dravidians from the beginning of history. As with distortions written about Africa regarding its supposed backwardness in food production, similar theories concerning the lack of sophistication in Dravidian agricultural methods are assumed. It is generally supposed that the Aryans were the first to introduce agriculture into southern India.
These festivals were also occasions for great food. A vast array of dishes were served at such events. The foods ranged from chicken and fish kari dishes, vegetable kari dishes, and tomato and spinach salads made with yoghurt, to coconut desserts such as barfis and karanjias. Festivals were an important part of the Dravidian social, academic, and economic environment. Expressions of love and community support were exchanged and reinforced. Scholars and students alike from every school came to these events to set up debates, exchange philosophies, and give lectures and conduct discussions on matters of religion and politics.
