In a place called Perumuda, Pilichandi Daiwa was known to be very powerful. Basically, it’s an origin was from a place called Balloli. Once upon a time, there lived a head of the family called Manju Poonja, who belongs to the family called Thumbe Jaala Guthu. This family got into trouble from robbery and it increased a lot. In-order to control and catch hold of thieves, person from that family went in search of powerful Daiwa to Balloli. When they were asked, which Daiwa they were in need of, answer was Pilichandi. When the people from Balloli disagree, Manju poonja shows them the money and gold. By then, after seeing the money they agree the deal, they had made in-order to offer the Daiwa. Later on, Manju poonja draws the sketch of the Daiwa Pilichandi on a beetle leaf and then bring it to tumbe jaale guthu and construct - make a space for the Daiwa and start believing it. Later the thieves are caught by the illusion of the Daiwa Pilichandi and were destroyed. Then Daiwa came to be known as thief trapper Daiwa.
By then, Tumba Jaale Guthu divinity increases and spreads to other villages and daiwa gets Settled, likewise, when this continued, a place called Peraara, Pilichandi wants to be placed there also, but the pre-existing powerful Daiwa called Balaandi does not agree with other divinity to be settled.
While “Daiwa Nema” ceremony was going on to the Daiwa Balaandi in Peraara village, Pilichandi Daiwa shown there through illusion. At last, when Balaandi was supposed to be offered bananas as food after the ceremony, a person called “Semitha” comes out to bring bananas and ends up in getting shots and is killed by Pilichandi.
Balaandi learns the truth that Semitha has gone out to bring bananas and didn’t return, instead he was killed from an illusion of Pilichandi, later Balaandi questions Pilichandi, what work he has here and why he came to village Paraara, so Pilichandi answers that he needs the power and to be worshipped and settled in the village Paraara, But Balaandi disagrees with his condition and rejects him. In between, their arguments grows. Later, Balaandi puts a condition to Pilichandi, saying that to prove himself a powerful deity. To bring back the person semitha, who has lost his life and get his weapon (kadsale) which is in Balloli village. Anyway, Pilichandi does proves himself. By observing Pilichandi power, Balaandi allows him get settled and give justice to the people of the Peraara village.
From Peraara, Pilichandi wanted to settle in other villages too, so he included Brahma and Ullaaya and started moving towards western coastal region (Karavali) to take bath, while travelling, On the way they came across a place Permude, nearby Bhatrogori, Brahma is being stopped, Ullaaya and Pilichandi takes bath in sea and enters the border of Permude and Kuthathuru, a hill known as Kaayaraukatte, when seen from the hill top village Permude, it seems like, “Perg perpulla, neerg nirpulla sthala” meaning “as good as milk and as cool as water”, thus permude village brings pleasure to see. From there, these deities they moved towards “Traampaara paade” and seek permission for the God, Somanatha, in-order to settle in Permude and in need of good family. So, they get to know that “Bollolimarguthu” is one of the family. Again, through an illusion, Pilichandi and Ullaaya attacks the family of Bollolimarguthu, children’s and Animal’s(cows) were in trouble with some dieses. When they seek an astrologer to find the solution, he says that 2 deities has entered, so you need to construct a place for them. So, as he instructed family constructed 7 feet length Mada for Ullaaya and 7 feet width Daiwa Gunda for Pilichandi. As, Pilichandi travelled for long in hot sun and wind to the place Permude, Bollolimarguthu is the first family to serve bowl of water and milk to Daiwa. As Pilichandi satisfied and gets settled, family had to perform Dharma Nema ceremony and Pilichandi is being worshipped.
On the Nema day, inorder to receive prasadam, a poojari named as Mukkodi Doome, to receive the prasadam, later Pilichandi told him that he wanted to visit his home and says that he wants to become the village deity and follows the poojari’s home. While going he steps into “Munjotti Paade” and he settles there also and again from there he comes to “Kallande Paade and finally he goes to Mukkodi’s house and then becomes village deity.
