Describe Auvvaiyar - most likely answer, old women with stick who sang proverbs and was disciple of Murugan and Eesan. This is one of the greatest Myths which you can safely debunk. In one of my other post I have written how at least 3 poets existed in Tamil Nadu with name of Auvvaiyar. The first one was of Sangam Age. A poet par excellence, most of us know her songs on Adhigaman Neduman Anci. In way some of her poems were prelude to hero build up songs in Tamil cinema. But the side most of us don't know is the sensitive and mostly aggressive love poems.
Probably one of the greatest visual imagery in Tamil literature. Any body who wants to understand the greatness of Sangam Tamil poets need to read the poem and see my visual representation. Nothing more to say from my end the picture would say the rest!
Poem on wedded love or arranged marriage... where they fight as kids but are inseparable as wedded couple..

Three Tamil cinema songs inspired one Tamil Sangam poem.One of the most famous Sangam poems - Red earth and pouring rain.
Happy Pongal to all the readers. I was so guilty of not writing for so long that I have decided to write on this day special to Tamilians all around the world. Few months ago I came across this poem in a book 'Sips from the Sangam cup'. This song really shows the wisdom of the Tamil people 2000 years ago. This poem answers on basic doubt most youngsters have these days. So without giving much more buildup like Tamil action heroes I will proceed to the poem.
