Thaamaan Thonrikkon The Leader of the Mullaiththinai People

Dr.S.Kanmani Ganesan


          The aim of this paper is to decipher the clan and the living place of Thaamaan Thonrikkon; the hero of the hymn Puranaanooru- 399. Puranaanooru is a treasure bearing the social history of the early Tamils. It’s true; the compilers of the anthology, the first publisher Dr.U.Ve.Saaminaathaiyar and the commentators after him had done a wonderful job. But there are still lots of unfolded pages which should be studied to reveal the truths and forgotten history. The compilation procedure of the specific anthology reveals the lovable attitude of the Tamil people towards the triumvirs; the Cheras, the Cholas and the Pandyas of Tamil Nadu. As a result they have failed to bring out the adorable heroes among the thinaimaanthar. Besides, the area to which the hero belongs was not finalised by anybody. It would be fair on our part if we are able to derive the landscape in which the hero practiced his leadership and finalise the clan to which he belongs. The etymology of the full name of the hero itself serves as the source to pinpoint his clan. The residential township of the poet who sang his name and fame also serves as the primary source to identify the hero’s country. Google maps help us to carry out this task in a successful manner. The vegetation of the landscape serves as the secondary source. The researches of 20th century scholars serve as the tertiary source. We are able to finalise Thaamaan Thonrikkon’s landscape at the foothills of the Kodaikanal mountains near Beijam Lake and identify him as the leader of mullaiththinai people.

Keywords:Thaamaan Thonrikkon, Leader of Mullaiththinai, Aiyoor, Berijam lake.

Tholkappiyar’s Meyppadu (Funtion of Emotions) and Psychology



          Of the grammar books available today “Tolkappiyam” sought its name and fame all over the world. In general, the word is the word of the subject with three powers. Book nine is divided into nine functions. In the realm of “Tolkappiyam”, it is a treasury of too many news for current psychologists to wonder that like science it had described human behavior before many thousand years now commonly known as psychology. It is not a linguistic treatise but a book of didactic ethics and psychology. It deciphers the intrinsic properties of human behavior and easily visible in the external properties of modern psychology that explores. Any expression in human life is called an act. So, psychology decodes about people's actions and behaviors. It is no wonder in science but in literary treatise if factors the most; one can see the massive internal feelings and emotions of men and women in Meyppadu of “Tholkappiyam”. Psychology is an academic discipline that has been developed in today's world education. In solving people's problems, the work of psychology is essential. It helps to identify the human thoughts and practices. It also pictures life. Long back, Tholkappiyar claims emotions arising in one person overlooking the other. Listening is known as the external code of ‘meyppadu’. Psychology is the manifestation that helps us to decode such thoughts and ideas found in literature. The science of the soul psychology can reveal the events of their existence visible and apparent manifestations in terms of psychological research. This article probes such evidences from the authentic sources.

Keywords:Tholkappiyar, Meyppadu, Funtion of Emotions, Psychology.

4. A Parallel Study of Emerson and Kannadasan

M.Jothilakshmi & Dr. T.K.Vedharaja


          Emerson has revolted against the evil of rules prescribed by the religion of his country. His could see that people have been fooled and put in the clutches by those religious rules and it has also failed to make people realize God. He has observed that Indian religion has been doing right things with right ideas giving all freedom people and helping them to realize God much. The result of this experience of Emerson is the poem ‘Brahma’. Kannadasan from Tamil language has revolted against many evils in the society and written poems attacking them boldly. Both Emerson and Kannadasan could find the work of God behind all events in the world in many a different in unimaginable forms and have stressed it in their writing. Kannadasan like Shakespeare for drama has written innumerable playback songs containing philosophical ideas about life and the world, which is the immortal mark of Shakespeare as well as Kannadasan.hence, the article is a parallel study of the selected poems of Emerson and Kannadasan.

Keywords:Soul, Brahman, Transcendentalism, Hinduism, Immortality, Purity.

5. Unexplored Source of Source in Thirukkural



          “Thirukkural” from Tamil language gives good and right directions for walks life. It discusses the positive and negative results of various actions of men in all areas of life. The ideas of “Thirukkural” have been accepted everywhere in the world for they are common one for the entire human race. “Thirukkural” is written in couplets and in each of them a particular message about an aspect of life begins and ends. The meaning of the couplets have been analyzed and explained in detailed ways by many Tamil veteran scholars. The important point of this article is that the idea of every couplet implies the divine source of source which is the center of that idea. This fact about the couplets in “Thirukkural” becomes an example for Derrida’s concept of center which can be anywhere in the text or even somewhere out of text in his ‘Structure, Sign, and Play”.
