The Indigenous people of each Nation were those grew up along with Nature knowing (feeling/experiencing) its rhythm, protecting and caring for it. The Indigenous people of India also grew up in a similar manner. But the caste system evolved consequent to the Aryan invasion, segregated the Indigenous people as Adiyalar and Keezhalar (the Oppressed). The section of Brahmins which possessed by the supremacy of Knowledge politics, trapped the indigenous people under their control. They signified the Indigenous people as Demons and Barbarians stamping them as the ones who do not give comfort and convenience to the life style and custom of the Brahmins. In this age in which the oppresses builds defence recognizing his own real roots surmounting all these situations, it becomes visible in art and literature. The play ‘Urvarasangeetham’ written by K.V. Sreeja and EC Dinesh Kumar based on the ‘Pulappaattu’ a myth related to the heritage of the Kanakka Community of Eranaadu, transforms the inner instincts of the Oppressed, into a theatrical text. The article “The Vision/ Philosophy of the Oppressed in the Urvarasangeetham is an enquiry into it.
