Constantine Joseph Beschi (8 November 1680 – 4 February 1747), also known under his Tamil name of Vīramāmunivar (வீரமாமுனிவர்), was an Italian Jesuit priest, missionary in South India, and Tamil language littérateur (a literary person, esp. a writer of literary works)..-Wiky

He mastered the Tamil language and published many books with Christian teachings in Tamil under the name Vīramāmunivar. His narrative poem "Dembavani" is famous. In the 18th century, he translated books such as Tirukkural, Devaram, Thiruppugazh and Athichudi into Latin and other languages. Parmathaguru Kathas, which he wrote in Tamil culture, adapted from the comic stories popular in Europe at that time, were famous for their humorous nature and were translated into many Indian languages. 

Vīramāmunivar wrote the Paramārtha Guru stories in Tamil, steeped in humor. The naïve Guru and his five disciples, Matti, Madaiyan, Pēthai, Mūdan, Milēcchan engage in acts, which Paramārtha guru narrates in a story-form with humor. Their names are everyday pejorative monikers in Tamil Nadu to describe people with varying degrees of stupidity.

In this story, the name of the disciples are Mandu, Madaiyan, Moodan, Muttal, Matti... They are synonyms for a simpleton.

Fake News Big Lies.
1. "Gurunatha! What if we start a palm leaf newsletter?" asked the fool.

2. "A newsletter? What profit would that bring us?" asked the wise guru.
3. "We can write praises about ourselves every day. We can criticize those we don't like as we wish," said the fool.
4. "If so, we could name our newspaper ‘’The Daily Fabrication,’’suggested the guru.
5. "Under the name, we could write 'Adept Fabricator’s white lie - Eight Days of Truth!'" suggested the dunce.
6. From that day onwards, the wise guru's hermitage became a newspaper office. The wise guru assumed the position of the editor of the 'Daily Fleck'. The dunce and the idiot were appointed as reporters.
7. As darkness fell, the reporters, the dunce and the idiot, set out. At that time, the king of the country also set out in disguise to inspect the city.
8. Seeing this, the dunce asked, "Why is the king going in disguise?"
9. "To steal," said the idiot.
10. "He's peeking into every house, why?" wondered the dunce.
11. "He's planning which house to rob," explained the idiot.
12. "We shouldn't just ignore this. We must write it largely on the front page!" declared the dunce.
13. Upon returning to the hermitage, they began writing the gathered news.
14. "Grazing beyond the fence!"
15. "The king himself plans to rob public property!"
16. "At night, he peeked into every house in disguise."
17. Under this headline, they fiercely attacked the king with their writing.
18. "We must not simply forgive those who competed against us in the election. We must seek revenge," said the dunce.
19. "Let's create a list of corruptions for the ministers too," shouted the fool.
20. Immediately, the dunce and the idiot wrote the news as follows.
21. "Extravagance with government money! Commander Thambusami causes a commotion after drinking!"
22. "The corrupt Minister Appusami received six cigar bundles as bribe."
23. "Corruption upon corruption! The mystery of Minister Malarvannan building a mansion."
24. "Prince Indiran's amorous sport! Scandal: He grabbed and pulled a young woman's hand!"
25. Similarly, they attacked everyone they disliked as they wished.
26. "Let's write some praises about ourselves too!" said the fool.
27. "What to write?" asked the idiot.
28. "The Ganja king Paramartha's achievement! He chain-smoked thirty rolled Ganja cigars in a single day!" wrote the fool.
29. "How rolling in the dirt benefits health?" under this title, the dunce provided an interview on the health benefits of rolling in the dirt.
30. "How to grow a belly?" Paramartha wrote a research article in the 'Science' section.
31. "A statue for Paramartha! Public protest! A demand to erect statues for 'Philosophical Father' Guru Paramartha and his disciples. The people went on a procession and protested, insisting that the statue be placed opposite the palace!"
32. Similarly, they scribbled as they pleased everyone.
33. Having taken everything to Paramartha, "You all have written well. Sell them as soon as dawn breaks," he said before going to bed.
34. As dawn broke, the disciples went out to sell the newspapers.
35. "Haven't bought the 'Daily Lie, buy the 'Daily Lie! Forty coins for four pages!" shouted the fool.
36. Some people ran to buy the newspaper written on palm leaves. After reading the news, they were shocked.
37. The news reached the king and the ministers. Criminal charges were read against Paramartha and the disciples for falsely writing about the just king and his ministers.
38. "Who said all this is true? Look at the name of the newspaper; it's 'Daily lie,' isn't it?" said Paramartha.
39. Afterwards, the guru and his disciples were released.
