Abstract

Efforts to assess tamil culture on a global scale have been made through classical literature. More new information and results will be revealed when we evaluate the original oral works on the global platform than the classical classics that have the elements of verbal literature. Although tamil comparative studies have been carried out in a wide range of different types and versatile languages, the fields of comparative research in ancient languages like Tamil are emerging. The stories in the Tamil nadu folk lore published by Dr. Ramanathan and the folklore of The German and Ireland published by the Grim brothers have been comparatively studied.
