About the book:

The Kural by Thiruvalluvar is an ancient work of the Sangam Age. The author raises the query: 'What is it that makes the Kural immortal?', and tries to seek an answer.
The author highlights Valluvar's penetrating insight into the unshifting foundations of life and his extraordinary genius for abstraction and generalization. It is strikingly different from any book or commentary so far written on the Kural.
