PARIAH

From Tamil paraiyar, from paraiyan, (“drummer”), from parai, (“drum”) or from Malayalam parayar, from parayan, (“drummer”), from para, (“drum”). Parai in Tamil or Para in Malayalam refers to a type of large drum designed to announce the king’s notices to the public.

The people who made a living using the parai were called paraiyar; in the caste-ridden society they were in the lower strata, hence the derisive paraiah and pariah. Now the term is used to describe an outcast in English.

  1. An outcast.
  2. A demographic group, species, or community that is generally despised.
  3. Someone in exile.
  4. A member of one of the oppressed social castes in India.
