connect - Narumugaiyae from Iruvar to the following book

narumugaiyae features various phrases from sangam literature. One of it is " Sembulam peitha neerthuli pol anbudai nenjam kalandhadhuvae"

this is a song from kurunthogai written by Sempulapeyaneerar. Vikram Chandra got the title of his novel from the english translation of the very same song.

bonus fundaes: 1.Vikram chandra also wrote th script for Mission:Kashmir
2. I think, 'Naetru vari nee yaro naan yaro' from vaazhkai padagu is also derived from the very same kurunthogai song albeit without using the same words.


  • good ones srini!
