They are taught to call their village ‘Panneermadai’ (panneer being rose water), not Pannimadai (panni is the Tamil word for pig).The residents of the panchayat, on the outskirts of the district, had passed resolutions in the panchayat council to change the name and even petitioned the authorities several times to rename their village.
