... kamban vITTuk kaTTuth thari* we are!
* Even the looms in great kavi Kamban's home (of weavers) would sing a verse or two
1) Kamban was not a weaver. He was born in a poojari family, but was brought up in a wealthy farmer's household.

2) 'Kattutthari' refers to a post to which the animals are tied.

Thanks again Bala. The kaTTuth thaRi reference must have lead to this misinformation which got lodged in me when I was a child, I guess...
