This story has all imaginary beauty. Blind person playing Music in behind the screen of Royal court is very good scene for any cinema. His music was attracted the King then he had donated huge village as a gift to the blind Musician so the land become Yazhpaanam. What total fiction presented as a history to the generations? What is base for this story? None .
In jaffna no body ever saw that instrument so yaazh or inidan harp. People also not very music supporters to believe this heritage of music or so called yaazh players.This type of soft fine art nature is not existed in the history of jaffna Instead of music this Jaffna has a history of rigid religious rules and practice such as viradhams.
The name of the city of Yazhpaanam or yarlpaanam is not comes from the folkloric story of blind Yazh (Indian Harp) Musician Yazhpaadi. Imagination further goes, The king should not see a blind person so he had listen his music behind the curtain. As usual king was attracted by his music and donated the land called manarri . This land then Re Christine as Yazhppaanam . So called historians never try to bring any valuable reason to believe this story. These type of royal nostalgic stories are very common in India.
