    //"eNkuNaththaan thaaLai vaNangkaath thalai" (kuraL).//
    The common definition given to this kural, is that right? There are people who say that 30 kurals in Thirukkural were inserted into the Thirukkural at a later time and wasn't in the original Kurals that Thiruvalluvar wrote.

    //As between Japanese and Tamil, researches are going on. I shall rever to them in due course and let you know, thiru Neduncheziyan avargale!!//

    THIRU A P MASILMANI avargaLae!

    //The word sengunthan also denotes a position in the military, like the word "lance corporal".//
    Does the word 'Sengunthan' have any connection with the Cheran 'Chenkuttuvan?' What does Chenkuttuvan means?

    Hello Thiru Masilamani,

    I think the work Vidhavai (widow in Tamil), is derived from the sankrit work Vidhva as it is very close to the english word Widow. Let me know if I'am right.
    Also let me know what is the pure Tamil word for Widow..

    Thanks

    I mean, Sanskrit word is original and Tamil word is derived from it as the Sanskrit word is very close to English word...

    Thiru Chandrashekar,

    Vithavai may be Indo-European in origin, and may have been taken from Skrt. Pure Tamil word is "KaimpeN".

    Regards.

    //wasn't in the original Kurals that Thiruvalluvar wrote.//

    Thiru Neduncheziyan avargale! No way to confirm. Even if someone else wrote and inserted it, it must have occurred long before; the word "thaaL" was then already in use.

    //connection with the Cheran 'Chenkuttuvan//
    No connection with the Cheran. Kuttuvan was from Kuttanaadu. "Kuttuthal" here is said to mean "Ethiriyaik kuttuthal". Kuttuthal: kuttaiyakkuthal (making the other smaller in battle or thalaiyil kuttuthal: knocking with one's knuckles on the head of another

    Senguntham: kuntham = stave or stick. Senguntham is a stick which is held upright when marching.
    (Senguththaaka pidikkum kOl).

    () + + = ( "" "" Ģ)
    nanRi.

    Thiru Neduncheziyan.

    You did not ask if Kuttuvan became "Kutty" - now a caste title in Kerala!! Some researchers think so.

    nanRi Thiru A P MASILMANI avargaLae!!

    What is an equivalent word for the word 'Luck?' People use 'athistam' but thats either sanskiritized Thamizh word or a sanskirit word.

    I once heard from someone that Thamizhars had 16 or more different age sections. For instance in English say you'd have Child age, Teenage then adult etc ( I don't know if there are anything in between those in English). Anyhow, do you know those stages in Thamizh? Would you please list them?

    nanRi, vaNnakkam
