Padheyam is a 1993 Malayalam film directed by Bharathan and produced by Bharath Gopi, featuring Mammootty in the lead role. Mammootty portrayed a poet named Chandradas, while debutante Chippy played his estranged daughter. The film was a critical and commercial success.
Chandradas (Mammootty) is a famous poet in Kerala who lives with his sister's family. His father died when he was young so he grew up under their care. He has no interest in writing or painting, but only likes listening to music and dancing. Once his sister gets married, she asks him to leave her house and go away from town because she doesn't want to lose contact with him. Feeling lonely, Chandradas comes back after one year and tries to find work but fails to do so. He then decides to write his own story which turns out to be a novel titled Padheyam. While working on it, he meets with Ananda (Suresh), who becomes his friend and helps him publish his book. Ananda falls in love with Chandradas' daughter Chippy but Chandradas does not approve of this relationship as he thinks that Ananda is just a good friend. One day, Ananda sees Chandradas getting attacked by some people outside a hotel where he works as a waiter.
Padayani, which means "row of warriors," is thought to have been done by Kalaripayattu soldiers to demonstrate their might and chivalry in order to intimidate their opponents from the southern region of Travancore. Thus, this art style may be traced back to the Kalaripayattu martial art lineage. Today, it is still performed as a ritual before important battles or demonstrations of skill.
The word "padayoni" refers to the line of dancers who perform during this event. It is composed of individual performers called "padyami" who move to the sound of drums to imitate the movements of animals. Each padyami has its own unique style that can only be learned from him/herself through direct experience. There are three main types of padayoni: men, women, and kalari (male) - kalari being the term used for trained dancers who specialize in imitating animal moves.
Padayani was originally meant to distract the enemy with spectacular dancing displays before attacking them with sword dances or other maneuvers. However, modern-day practitioners use it as a form of entertainment after winning competitions or giving performances.
This ritual art form is now practiced only by small groups of people in the villages of South India with no official organization. The last surviving master teacher of Kalari Payat was found in 1990 and he died two years later.
Pada is the Sanskrit word for "foot" (corresponding to English foot, Latin pes, and Greek pous), with derivative meanings such as "step, stride; imprint, trace; remnant, mark"...

In Hinduism, especially Buddhism and Jainism, paatha - sometimes written peyā or payá - are a class of beings whose bodies are composed of one hundred thousand petals, each of which bears the name of a human being. Each flower has a separate mind and consciousness, so that the whole collection forms a single individual who can think and act.
In Hindu mythology, the Pandava were a noble family that included some of the greatest warriors of their time. The Pandavas were sons of King Pandu of the Panchala kingdom. Their mother was Queen Madri of the Kuru dynasty. The Pandavas had four sons, named Yudhisthir, Bhima, Arjuna, and Uttamaujas. They lived in ancient India around 500 B.C. After becoming king, their father appointed them judges in the kingdom. But when the time came for them to fight in the great war between good and evil, they resigned their posts instead.
Now, this is where things start to get interesting!

Sandrocottus is a genus of cartilaginous fish in the family Dasyatidae, which contains only one living species, Sandrocottus baliochevichi. It is found in the Sea of Okhotsk in eastern Russia and north-eastern China. Sandrocottus means "sand shark" or "little sand shark"; it was named for its sandy coloration. This genus is unique among sharks in having no dorsal fin; instead, there are two large fins on the tail that help it steer through the sediment at the bottom of the sea.
The species was first described by Russian ichthyologists Boris Yanega and Vladimir Borodovsky in 1972. They gave it the scientific name Dasyatis chandraguppti, with the suffix "-otti" meaning "the little one", in reference to Chandragupta Maurya.
Pada is the Sanskrit word for "foot" (equivalent to English foot, Latin pes, and Greek pous), with derivative meanings such as "step, stride; imprint, trace; remnant, mark."
Sanskrit also has a word pad which means "leg". So, a person who has lost his legs can still be called Pada-pati ("lord of feet").
The term Pada-pati is often used in Hinduism to refer to God.
In Buddhism, there is a story about how the Buddha became enlightened after losing his two feet in a fire. He immediately realized that all human beings are responsible for their own actions and cannot be held accountable for others' sins or virtues. This truth comes when you lose your feet, because without feet you can't do anything wrong or right. So, being aware of one's faults and learning from one's mistakes is important in order to grow as a person.
Also, having no feet means you cannot stand against evil things such as hatred and anger. At first, this may sound like a bad thing but it's not. It's just that nothing can stop you from doing good!
The term dhamma comes from the Sanskrit word dharma, which meaning "holy obligation." Thus, dhamma means "that which holds us to our life vows" or "the path."
Dhamma is one of the principal themes in the Buddha's teachings. It can be translated as "law," "system," "method," "teachings," or "doctrine." The Pali word for doctrine is Dīgha, so Buddhism is sometimes called the Dīgha Nikāya (Long Discourse School).
Dhamma is an important concept for Buddhists. They believe that everything in existence can be divided into two categories: what exists by virtue of its relationship to the soul (atman), and what exists due to other causes. The correct understanding of reality leads to liberation (moksha) from saṃsāra, the cycle of death and rebirth.
At any given moment, you have a choice between acting according to universal law or following your own desires. If you choose to act according to law, then it's called karma yoga. If you choose to follow your own desires, then it's called rajayoga.
