The author of the Ramakatha paattu was a member of the traditional astrology of the community of ancient Kerala. His name was Ayippally Asan. The traditional astrology of the community of Kerala was known as Kaniyar or Ganaka. Kaniyar people had two titles, Asan and Panicker, in the south and north of Kerala respectively. These titles are believed to be socially assigned to them in virtue of their preceptor status for the traditional martial art of Kerala, Kalaripayattu), and literacy and numeracy. The Author of Ramakatha paattu belonged to the Roast sect of Kaniyar, who lived in the southern region of Kerala, in Kovalam near International.
