Why this petition matters

Started by Shivram V

During a programming on Adi Shankaracharya, the narrator incorrectly announced that Adi Shankaracharya was born in the Vishwabrahmana caste. This is factually incorrect. Viswabrahamanas are goldsmiths in andhra region, whereas in Kerala Nambootiris are brahmins. Hence it needs to be corrected that Adi Shankara was born to Brahmin parents.
