Perunthinai Pothuviyal The Kaikkilai and Perunthinai are traditionally associated with akam poetry. In Purananuru, they occur in the context of the familiar puram landscape of warfare. Realism[ edit ] Purananuru songs exhibit a unique realism and immediacy not frequently found in classical literature. The nature and the subject of the poems lend us to believe that poets did not write these poems on events that happened years prior, rather they wrote or sang them on impulse in situ. Some of the poems are conversational in which the poet pleads, begs, chides or praises the king.

He wrote poem Is this fair? You seize land from others causing them pain but do sweet things for those who receive gifts. You give gold lotus blossoms for bards to wear, and elephants with foreheads with ornaments and decorated chariots for poets to mount. The elephant has gone into rut and cannot recognize its keepers. May he return safely without ill health, the lord of the country surrounded by oceans as fences, a land with fatty fish and aged liquor, where farmers collect dropped feathers of peacocks when they gather sheaves of paddy!
With your large hands that reach to your legs, you impel your murderous, harsh elephant to ruin cross bars of protected gates, and control it with a decorated iron goad, as needed, and you rein your fast galloping horse, judging the depths of moats and staying away from them. You wear a quiver on your back.
You shoot volleys of arrows from your chariot, scarring your hands with tight bow strings. You give precious wealth to those who come in need. In battles, your strength is like that of the vast earth. You are like Murukan in battles. Your chest distresses women. The hands of those who sing to you are soft since they know no stress, other than that of eating rice cooked with meat, and chunks of fresh meat roasted in fire with flower-fragrant smoke.
