Kannabiran Ravishankar – profile of a foul, vicious, misogynist, anti-Hindu Dravidianist

Those of us in Tamil internet have always known Mr Kannabiran Ravishankar (aka kryes – who maintains a twitter account @kryes) as a high intensity abusive account with no trace of scholarship, erudition, grace, composure, integrity, control of language or any of the attributes one would expect from an academic. Let alone an academic who walked and won the corridors of elite institutions like University of California (Berkeley).

The modus of Mr Kannabiran Ravishankar twitter account are

  • High frequency – a tempo account that maintains a certain cadence to keep the buzz
  • Viciously anti Brahmin – by creating canards and regurgitating existing canards
  • In Tamil only – so the outside world needs an interpreter to know what is going on
  • Misogynistic – talks in the most foul language to women
  • Photos of Tamil brahmins used – swipes photos of Tamil brahmin families and abuses them
  • Uses photos of children – this is a criminal angle he swipes private photos of Tamil Brahmin children and uses their images to overlay canards and Dravidian anti-brahmin propaganda against them. We have initiated pursuing this as criminal matter with NCPCR (an Indian statutory body to protect children from being used in this manner)
  • In the midst of this – he tweets some pedantic and grammatical Tamil language tweets which are mostly of the nature of being looped back to defame and demonize Tamil Brahmins, Sanskrit, or Hindu Gods.
  • The language is always foul , vulgar, sexist and totally unbecoming of a ‘scholar’
  • Works his way into DMK (the ruling Dravidian party in Tamilnadu) leadership circles and posts photos with them.
  • Blocks anyone who at any point questions him.

In all, we the Tamil speaking non-Dravidian people, have never at any point seen any scholarly output , basic civility or verbal hygiene from Mr Ravishankar Kannabiran. We have always questioned his credentials such as the alleged PhD he claims to have received from University of California (Berkeley). It was a laughable proposition that such a vulgar personality with such a poor capability for constructing questions and arguments would be from such a premier institution. His account simply produced foul nuggets that would be amplified and distributed by a dedicated cadre. Creating that “buzz” was his total output.

Proof of his online conduct while voluminous is scattered.

The goal of this post is to document this persona and put all the proof in one place.

Abusive vulgar tweets to Brahmin women mocking their traditional dress madisar

Evidence : Twitter ID https://twitter.com/kryes/status/853289293816770560 date 15-Apr-2017

He talks like this to a woman tweeter over some generic

“while wearing the madisar saree, innerskirt and jatti (panties), don’t you wear it (maateelaa – mocking a Tamil brahmin accent) what then is the shakti offering at that time Oy”

You can see the lady got shocked and deleted the tweet that proved his.

This is after 2017 when he claims to have done the PhD in UC Berkeley and working as an Professor (Adjunct) in University of Paris (Sorbonne). Can you believe this ?

Then some more vulgar bedroom movie scenes from a B-grade movie to excite over Brahmin women and men in a bedroom content. I will leave it to your imagination. I invite friends to translate in the comments section.

Evidence ID https://twitter.com/kryes/status/1136895419626266624

This is just a tiny sample of my collection.

Hindu gods abuse again vulgar and sexually

Once again you can see the obsession with panties (Jatti) the following shows Bhagwan Shiva and Parvati and turns some general political statement from PM Modi into a polemical “rule that you cannot wear Jatti (panties)”

Evidence ID: https://twitter.com/kryes/status/972768807625330688 Dated 03-11-2018

Next he uses the Dravidian slur word to denote Tamizh Brahmin women “Paapaathi” and plays a game on Murugan’s consort Devi Deiyvanai revered by millions.

Next he perverts a prayer hymn Kantha Sasthi Kavacam sung into a vulgar overly featuring barely clad Tamil actresses. One may argue this is freedom of speech, but why would a UC Berkeley PhD do something like this at all times. Second, in Bharat such religious vulgarity on other religions will result in instanr jail time under IPC 295.

Notice Bhagwan Ganesha’s trunk. He gets off on that.

He uses University of California at Berkeley and also University of Paris (Sorbonne) as qualifications, both bogus. This identity helps make his propaganda way more potent.

We will be adding more there is a lot.

Vicious anti-brahmin attacks using private photos

The pattern is he steals photos from unsuspecting private collages perhaps by trawling Facebook or other search. And then overlays caustic toxic anti-brahmin propaganda on top.

Consider this one-

This is Girija Vaidyanathan a well respected and clean IAS officer and Chief Secretary in Tamilnadu Government. I distinctly recall watching with horror and helplessness when this picture came out.

He says (in Tamil)

”A snake will strike without consideration of time. A Paapaathi (Dravidian slur word for Tamizh Brahmin women) will strike at the correct time. Understand that Paapaathi > Snake.”

Look at the number of Likes and RT’s this Dravidian cadre was his audience. Reporting such messages in prior to 2021 to twitter were of no use because it was in Tamil. They either had no translators or the contractors they use for Tamil work were infiltrated.

Once again, a public official isn’t immune from trenchant criticism. However this is unique, his isn’t critiquing her politically. Notice that he goes for her Brahmin caste only. I hope more and more people will explore and understand the uniqueness of the Dravidian ‘ideology’.

Another one calling her a “Paapathi Sirukki” Tamil speaks will know what it means to call a lady Sirukki..

Next we come to the actual criminal parts. It is next to impossible to book a Dravidian cadre in the state of Tamilnadu on such offences – we evidenced that during the U2Brutus handle vulgar attacks on Bhagwan Nataraja.

Using private pictures of Tamizh Brahmins to attack them

He trawls the internet , one can guess Facebook and picks pictures of unsuspecting Tamil Brahmins across the world. Then uses those pictures to layer a anti-brahmin canard on it.

Evidence ID : https://twitter.com/kryes/status/915645768177999874

A private picture of a happy Hindu Tamil brahmin family. they are probably not even aware. He flicks their pictures and says in Tamil “In immature age itself caste violence they are putting, migrant Tamizh Brahmins, they don’t know caste name, vedas , yet Fake pride” all canards.

Child pictures (Criminal parts – hence not sharing)

Pictures of minor children

We are currently preparing to approach the national child rights statutory body. Hence this falls under the criminal category. Only to prove that we do have the material and not bluffing sharing a few evidence ID and a heavily masked picture

This is only to beat back Dravidian supporters who would question if I am bluffing and not having evidence.

Evidence ID : https://twitter.com/kryes/status/915645768177999874

He says “Hey Great Sinners.. this baby will slur even when speaking Amma, is this going to speak Sama Veda, for this only Caste Thread, last name, and caste pride’

The rest I cant share at time because in my eagerness to show the world the real face of the Dravidian intellectual and Doctor of Letters, I did not want to propagate these pictures which will be used in a criminal proceedings going forward.

Foul abuse of Sanskrit using Tamil love as a cover

His tweets on Tamil grammatic are invariably tied to abusing Sanskrit and as a proxy Brahmins and other Hindus. The words he uses are foul shocking and totally unbecoming of a UC Berkeley PhD and a Professor (Adj) at Univ or Paris Sorbonne.

A sample : Anyone with Tamil will easily tell you that most of his Tamil tweets are designed to end with “Sanskrit Parasite”.

He brings a very bad reputation to University of California, Berkeley and more importantly the unsuspecting Prof Dr. George L. Hart.


Over the years I have engaged deeply in Tamil language with the Dravidian Tamil twitterverse and delved deep directly into Tamil sources of Dravidian source material. Luckily my Tamil knowledge and ability to converse in the common Tamil idiomatics helped me.

I have been aghast at the following

  • the intensity of the venom
  • the quality of the propaganda material ( I will be sharing the anti brahmin cartoon material shortly)
  • the continuous promotion of such individuals by the Dravidian elites
  • the helplessness of the common Tamilian to stop this
  • the indifference and lack of intellectual curiosity by New Delhi and other India states
  • the ability of the Dravidians Tamils to “manage” the other State’s Bharatiyas and also international scholar community particularly in the USA and UK

As a response I saved such evidence to be part of a mega chronicle.

Mr Kannabiran Ravishankar was introduced during his PhD Award as a ‘scholar of international repute in Tamil literature” – the Tamil people know he is anything but that. A hoax built on another hoax.

I encourage people to share any material from Mr Kannabiran Ravishankar that has offended them on twitter. The world must be shown who was awarded a PhD.
