The Avarnas (Ezhavas, Dalits & Adivasis) formed 54% of Travancore population in 1901, yet they were denied entry into Temples, Schools & Travancore Assembly.

Avarnas were even denied to wear clothes, denied to keep a moustache and were not allowed to walk on the temple road.
In 1914, social reformer Ayyankali took the lead in admitting a Dalit girl named Panchami to the school. She was denied her admission and attempts to secure admission for Panchami resulted in a massive agitation. Many Schools were burned down.
