Encyclopedia > Kural

Kural is one of the most important forms of traditional Tamil poetry. It is a very short poetic form, exactly in 2 lines, the first line consisting of 4 words and the second line consisting of 3 words. It should also conform to the grammar for Venpa. Thirukkural, one of the greatest philosophical works in Tamil language by Thiruvalluvar, is a typical example.

Here is a simple outline:

 word1 word2 word3 word4 word5 word6 word7 

The grammar is definitive with meter in prosody.Contemporary Kurals are hard to be found as the grammar is perceived to be very rigid.
