The divine lamp and the spirit of tradition still glows, in Puliyath Tharavad of Chethalur (Palakkad District), which is ignited by Ezhuthaasans of the family nine generations back in the traditional shastras of Astrology, Veda Ganitha and Sanskrit. The present generation of astrology pioneers are adding an extra line of testimony to the old Indian way of education system which is transmitted down to the successive generations.

This deep rooted astrology lineage of Puliyath Guptans make them standout among the astrology circles in the state of Kerala. It is also notable that this kind of  profession is chosen rarely by the vaishyas of Kerala state and is the best one that emerged out from our community adding to its pride.

Shri.Varrier had assigned Shri Gupthan to publish his Bharatha Panchangam after him and the same has been honorably done by Shri Guptan every year since then.
