Tamil Life and Culture As Portrayed in Prose Writings

V.Rajendran, Dr. A. Packiamuthu


In the past all ideas or thoughts or lessons were conveyed through poems. Then, the pantheon of prose writers used prose to communicate their thoughts and ideas. Notable among them were Ilampuvanar, Nachinarkiniyar, Sonavaraiyer and Adiyarku Nallar. They were followed by the modern prose writers i.e. Parimelazhaker, Narayanasamy Ayyar and V.O.S.DuraisamyPillai. Due to their untiring effort the essence of old Tamil literature became available to the modern succeeding generations. Thirukkural remains the crown of Tamil literature even today. Many wrote prose explanations to Thirukkural and it still continues. Some works have become popular because of the prose explanations made by the explanatory writers. Sanskrit language became dormant because of the lack of prose form. From this we can understand the importance of prose as a form of literature. In prose writings, feminism is abundant all over the world. Tamil language is no exception to that. In this study, a humble attempt is mad¬¬¬e to bring to light the theme of feminism and women’s rights in the modern prose writings.

“Tholkappiam” in the Textual Writings of Elucidative Writers- Syntactic Perspective of Kilavuyakkam

Prose has not been appeared for the songs that appeared in the ancient times of Tamil culture. Prose became customary only after the eighth century. The source text can be considered as the Iraiyanar Kalaviyal Urai. People who lived in antiquity did not need prose works to understand it. Later the teacher who taught the song was the explanation for the songs. The Prose that appeared in the beginning was the introductory Prose. The practice of writing full text for songs changed the level at which the explanation was said only for important words. Siddhar songs were not published as explanatory prose. Versions featuring introductory notes on Siddhars were largely found. Single songs and songs of total Siddhars were later published with texts. Various techniques are followed and written in the Prose for the spititual and philosophical interpretation.

Comparative Study of Commentator’s Peruntinai Theory


“Tolkappiyam” classifies the life of the people of the Sangam period based on Thinai as Akam and Puram. Kaikkilai, Mullai, Kurinji, Palai, Marutham, Neytal, Peruntinai are mentioned in Akathinai. Conflicts are found between the commentators while defining the Uripporul  of Thinai. Peruntinai is divided into four categories. Among these, ‘Theruthal olindha kamathu mikuthiram’ has been taken for study.  Ilampuranar and Naccinarkiniyar had shown Neytal kalippakal as examples for ‘Theruthal olindha kamathu mikuthiram’. V.Suba Manikkam says Lust’s excessive is Neytal kalippakal. K. P. Aravanan says Neytal kalippakal conveys Neytal Uriporul. N. Selvaraj says that to solve this problem there is no evidence in Sangam Literature but Kathasapthasathi has evidence. As in Sangam Literature, there is no structure of Akam and Puram in Kathasapthasathi. People are not called by their Proper names instead they are called by the Common name. Based on Sangam Literature and Kathasapthasathi, ‘Theruthal olindha kamathu mikuthiram’ has been taken for investigation and lucid explanations on the contradiction between the Commentators are the chief notion of the study.
