When I ordered this book online, I thought this would explain about the history of Tamils to a great extent. (My Bad!!) I didnt read the description of this book properly. However upon receiving this book I realised that this book explains about the culture of tamil community.
Apart from a disappointing start, I started reading this book. The author explained a lot more about the cultural and traditional values followed by the Tamils from the great literatures like Thirukkural, Silapathikaram, Puranaanuru, Aganaanuru, Seerapuranam etc.,
It starts with explaining the meaning and idea behind the name of the language “Tamil”. It continues to explain more about the life and community as a whole on following chapters. This book touches about the religious and caste based conflicts arised while the evolution of the community that was affected by continuous acts of wars and the colonisation under British.
Some facts are interesting to know. Some facts provide more insight about the culture. Good read.
