Kattappa - The Untold Story

Kattappa - The Untold Story by RVSpeaks




This is a tale about a Royal Slave, an honor-bound sentry, a loving grandfather, a caring Godfather, and most of all, the most loyal Mama. Yes, this is a tale about Kattappa from Bahubali whose loyalty is second to none, yet he would kill the man he had come close enough to call his nephew.

Ever wondered how can a Man like Katappa who was brought up with slaves, be as strong as someone like Bahubali - the Legend? Moreover, how can a man from such a low level reach to heights even enough have raised his voice against the almighty Sivagami Devi when she was wrong?

Well, I guess S.S. Rajamouli Sir has his own ways of keeping secrets from his fans like any other writer/author like George R.R. Martin, J.K. Rowling etc…

The story that I am about to reveal will take us over 120 years back, at a time when even the Ultimate Mahishmati Kingdom was just formed and was spreading its new foundations across Bharat.

This was the time of Shoktas, one of the fiercest militia in the history, who ruled the high grounds of China. The Shokta Reign was always a fascination amongst the other kingdom back then. Though being a Kingdom only full of kshatriyas who had a reputation to be the most feared militia for over several centuries, it used to always be at peace within its kingdom.

No Fights within themselves nor the nearby kingdoms; yes they were not live other warmongering clans, they had evolved too much for their own good. They were revered to be the only Kingdom with no reason to expand their kingdom but at the same time, would never deny the needy kingdoms. The Shoktas had never been defeated in an open battle before. Their advanced tactics and evolved minds could match up to any military strategy of their rival, countering them back with such an ease.

This was when Urgrappa, the forefather of Katappa as you know him today visited the Shoktas in order to seek permission to meet the King of Shoktas, Yamana Vishu. 
Yamana, never declined anyone from meeting him personally in the royal chambers without his private guards trying to keep their king safe from any unknown threats. While meeting Ugrappa, Yamana had asked him about his real motive to ride so far from his village to meet Yamana in private.

Ugrappa revealed his real intentions of pledging undeniable loyalty to Mahishmati in return for their favor in helping them avenge their village against Vaithalikas. Yamana, who was still trying to read between the lines as to why was it so important for Ugrappa to come to his capital. Ugrappa had mentioned they were seeking young blood who can be trained as warriors for protecting their oath of serving Mahishmati and its safety. Yamana was taken aback as to where this conversation was heading. He cut Ugrappa in the middle stating that Ugrappa himself was blessed with his son and a newly born grandson. Yamana glared back at Ugrappa and whispered with a calm yet eerie  ‘What are your real intentions Ugrappa???’

Ugrappa froze at the sudden turn of events and how Yamana was growing impatient his sudden visit to meet Yamana after the unfateful day 25 years back when Ugrappa saved Yamana from getting deceived into making a wrong decision and annihilating over 4 kingdoms at once, which Yamana was very much capable of.

It was this day when Yamana felt grateful that for the first ever time the leader of the mighty Shoktas had assistance in making the right decision from an outsider, and saving himself and Shoktas a potential guilt which would have lasted their clan for more than centuries, till their last clan member was alive.

Yamana being virtuous had given his word to Ugrappa than when a day comes when Ugrappa needed Yamana, there would be no questions asked in return for an undeniable assistance to Ugrappa.

Soon, reality dawned at Yamana as Ugrappa asked him for what he had come to him. Ugrappa wanted to adopt Janapalaka, his 3 years old son who would be replaced by Ugrappas’ very own grandson Nadar - none other than the very KARIKALA KATTAPPA NADAR!!!

Janapalaka was quite strong for any 3-year old. He almost seemed to be 8 years old while he was just 3. Janapalaka meant the great guardian of mankind - the one who is chosen to protect mankind when the time of extinction will dawn up to mankind. Like his name, Janapalaka was not only strong but was a charming boy with just one scare on his right shoulder, which he got a year back while he joined his father Yamana for hunting.

Yamana was brought to the here and now as Ugrappa Nadar reminded Yamana about the word he had given and that Ugrappa doesn’t which his very grandson to be a slave. Yamana glared at him with anger and order him to leave the chambers right away before Yamana beheads him to his punitive behavior.  Ugrappa Laughed hard as Yamana sat on his throne uncomfortable.
Yamana felt a bit dizzy and wanted to ask what Ugrappa had happened to him, and why is Ugrappa laughing.

‘I did not expect you to fulfill your promise any day Yamana, but I am not the only one to reach out to the Shoktas’, replied Ugrappa with all his sarcasm at his might. Ugrappa had revealed that he had poisoned the Sholuka river which the Shoktas revered like mother God, the night previous to his visit to the kingdom and that Yamana and his entire kingdom had just 3 hours left before falling down as one mighty clan eradicated at the snap of Ugrappa’s fingers.

Yamana was devastated for his fate and was wondering how to save his people and his family within the 3 limited hours. This was when Ugrappa ordered Yamana to order Janapalaka to come with himself and revere him to be the real forefather. This was the only way to save his entire clan and his son, Janapalaka. 

With no choice whatsoever, Yamana summoned Janapalaka and ordered him as per what Ugrappa had insisted. Janapalaka being a kid, did not understand much but he was just happy to know that he had a forefather whom he could look after too, just like his father.

Janapalaka was given a drink which helped him even before the poison began its attack, less was known to Yamana that his entire tribe had already fallen for the vicious poison mixed by Ugrappa. 

Just before his last breath, Yamana left a terrible curse that the real family of Ugrappa who would fall in front of his very own eyes by the ones he called his masters and that one day his son..his Janapalaka would rise above, though being a slave but living up to Yamana and the Shokta’s last tribe member like the Yuvaraj was.


This is why the Katappa we knew and the Janapalaka discovered today, is only of the mightiest man to ever walk in Mahishmati. 
Hope you liked the tale of  - An unfortunate king turned Slave, defending the honor of Mahishmati not less than a king

The Dark Night!

The Dark Night - RVSpeaks



18-year-old Ronnie was staring at a kid from the keyhole of the door outside the kids' room which was locked. He was wondering where was he and who is this kid with a slightly familiar face.

Ronnie had no clue as to what was going on and he continued to stare at the kid. He noticed, the kid wasn't alone and was playing with his elder friends. They were indeed having fun. Ronnie smiled at the innocent smile displayed by the kid and felt glad that his friends were entertaining the kid amongst the big guys who would roughly be in their early 20s.


The doors suddenly opened and the eldest friend Fred, had to leave the kid and his group for he had an appointment scheduled for his further studies. Ronnie was certain that he had seen this face, though Fred didn't even gaze upon Ronnie and who is he. Fred just kept the doors open and walked away bidding adieu to his pals.

Ronnie walked into the room to find the kid referring his friends as big brother's and were playing board games. Ronnie smiled, to find there were 6 big brother's to look after the kid, unlike his sorry self. Ronnie never had friends and was usually alone as he grew up and this was refreshing for him to see the kid enving how different would have his life been if he too had friends to be around and elder brother's to support.

A slight tear slipped from Ronnie's ever controlled eyes. He let them out for the first time in ages. He felt even he has the right to smile like this sweet kid.

While Ronnie was in his own world, admiring the kid, a sudden chill went through his spine. What happened? What the hell? Why are they...

Ronnie saw the other friends asking the kid to dance with them and in no time, started undressing him. Ronnie did not realize as to what he was noticing... The so-called friends started molesting the kid while the kid started crying asking them to not hurt me as he felt the gushing pain in his anus.

Ronnie tried to stop these guys but couldn't lay a single hand on them as if it was all a mirage, while the kids gazing directly into Ronnie' s eyes, desperately seeking help to free himself. Ronnie couldn't help the kid and felt disgusted with what he had to witness right in front of him. The kid yelled, screamed for mercy as all the 6 guys ripped apart the innocence from the kid's face. The kid could not be saved, the kid knew it... Ronnie knew it. He bashed his tough fist on the table breaking a portion of the table. Ronnie's anger took the better off him even as he saw his injured first starting to bleed.

He cried and suddenly heard a loud knock on the door. He turned back to see if there was someone tho could help the kid, only to find himself opening his eyes on his bed.

What! This was just... Just a dream? Everything seemed so true as to what Ronnie witnessed and he couldn't even believe the fact that his fists were swollen for no reason. He started sweating and felt really uncomfortable to find such a dark and dreadful nightmare for the first time ever.


He went to the kitchen, gulped some water trying to get the poor kids face out of his mind. Ronnie tried going back to sleep, still thinking about the weird kid; less he knew that it was the kid Ronnie that came in his dream trying to show a dark childhood reality which Ronnie never remembered after that dreadful day!

Happy Birthday Father

2:07 PM Posted by Venkateswaran Ramachandran , , , , , , , , , , No comments
Few words for the person behind making me who I am today.
Happy Birthday, Father. I Love you the most. Hope you Like it!






From being solid roots to support the tree,
To be the perfect highway to race on free,
You were, are, and will be the one,
To suck the negativity off everyone.

A Selfless deed throughout your life,
Just for your mom, children, and your wife,
For them to live their dreams, you made that yours,
Never once thinking about the crushed dream of yours.

Turned 59, yet 20 from the heart,
Standing tall, never falling apart,
Earning people’s heart all your way,
Managing yourself all night all day.

Truth is that you achieved a lot,
For your ever-smiling face is all I got,
Enjoy this day, for you deserve it the most,
Hey Dad, Wish you a Happy Birthday, remember I love you the most.

Sound of Death

You saw me mesmerizing, flowing towards you,
Inviting, exciting and enticing you.
Come to me, get immersed and get yourself drawn in,
My sound calling you out, to pull you in.

You came to me, with loving eyes,
Thinking, this moment never flies.
I let you enjoy and keeping you fascinated,
Till the right moment to get you distracted.

You thought of my sound to keep you at peace in this damned earth,
Alas, I manage to trick you,
For I am the Sound Of Death.

A sound that quenched my thirst

9:49 PM Posted by Venkateswaran Ramachandran , , , , , , , , No comments


To rid off my pain and grief that rest,
To enlight me with who I am,
Of what I am suppose to be,

To face off my challenges
And become more tough,

To brace the loved ones
Who stand with me,

To become one with the nature
And preach about Love,
And keep hatred away
For it will pull me down and just shove,

I thank the sound that quenched my thirst,
That sound of the wave from the sea,
Which answered me and my solitude first.
