 The Historical facts: Varaha Roopam
As the legend goes, the Varaha (mystical forests)  Avatar aka Wild Boar, was being taken to protect the Bhudevi aka Bhoomi devi, from the demon, Hiranyaksha - who stole vedas from the Bramha and he hid inside the water, and because of his impurities, the water became impure and to clear the impurities, Shree Vishnu took the form of Wild Boar, as the boar lives in the mud, litter, and eats it and purifies it all.  His feet represent the Vedas (scriptures). His tusks represent sacrificial stakes. His teeth are offerings. His mouth is the altar, the tongue is the sacrificial fire. The hair on his head denotes the sacrificial grass. The eyes represent the day and night. The head represents the seat of all. The mane represents the hymns of the Vedas. His nostrils are the oblation. His joints represent the various ceremonies. The ears are said to indicate rites (voluntary and obligatory)   he defeated the demon and Uplifted the Earth aka Bhu-devi, and placed it in Cosmic Universe, and to get rid of the dirt which came across from the fight, irritated him and he shaked his head, and three mud balls were created which finds its reference in Sharaddhas  As a reference of three rice balls.  and then he cleared the litter and placed the Earth again, legends believed he married the earth, aka bhudevi and sweared to protect her. 

Bhoota kola: Panjurli and Guligaabout 200 years Ago, as per the treaty (mystical forests) of Lord Varaha, the dance performers of Tamil Nadu, wear costumes as shown and are called Panjurli  they bless the people, they are the calm avatar of Varaha believed to be the after part of the fight with the demon, Hiranyaksha whereas the Guliga the wrath form of Varaha avatar, who is always hungry, he is the furious form hence he takes the costume  as shown. And they are worshipped in the tulinese people in tamil nadu. Another legend tells after the fight between the hiranyaksha and Varaha form, the Varaha form resided in people as Panjurli and after the disolution of the form, a young boar furious one is born to the land, thought to have come from the wrath of the Varaha roop while fighting, and it is taken care by the goddess bhumi, and raised as own child but because of its wildness it is has been given the responsiblity of Protector of land- as owed by varaha Form
it is very interesting to know how people have regained their interests back in the history of these folklores .
