Question by Pumpkin: Why tradition didn't permit Udupi Shivalli brahmnis to eat with sthanika brahmins or enter into matrimony?
Until recent times, shivalli brahmins & sthanikas, though are similar in every aspect including their mother tounge, would not sit together for food. They were not allowed to enter into matrimonial alliances. Why this strange phenomena existed untill, say 1950s ?

Best answer:

Answer by JESUS IS GOD
The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me,
because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners,

  1. *SDA 4 CHRIST* Romans 10:9

    It is widely believed that the name of Udupi was derived from its Tulu name Odipu. The Tulu name in turn is associated with a temple at Malpe, devoted to Vadabhandeshwara. Another story is that the name Udupi came from the combination of the Sanskrit words Udu and Pa, which mean “stars” and “lord.” According to legend, the moon’s light was once reduced due to a curse by King Daksha, whose 27 daughters (the 27 stars, according to Hindu astrology) were married to the moon. The moon prayed to Lord Shiva to get back its original shine. Lord Shiva was pleased with the moon’s prayer and restored its shine. Legend says that the moon and his wives made their prayer at the Chandramouleeshwara temple at Udupi, creating a linga that can be seen even today. According to this story, therefore, Udupi means the land of the “lord of the stars,” the moon.
