Thirukkural and Tamil
Songs
Thirukural is an important work of
Tamil literature by Thiruvalluvar
written in a poetic form called
Kural or couplets expounding
various aspects of life.
While most scholars place him
during 100-300 BCE, there are a
few who consider him to have
lived c. 30 BCE. Thirukural
contains 1330 couplets divided
into 133 chapters of 10 couplets
each.
Each couplet consists of seven
words, with four words on the first
line and three on the second. It
is sometimes claimed that
Thiruvalluvar wrote more than
1330 couplets, and that the rest
of the work has gone missing and
also that some of the verses were
later included in the
compilation.
