we couldn’t not find any news that were not told in Tamil literature two thousand years ago. The species formed in the world are uncountable among them who has the thinking power and the knowledge of how to lead a life is only human race. To enrich the race of human wealth has become a necessity. In whole Sangam literature so many imprints  are there about the need of money. esspecially in Kalithogai  which is honor  by the educated men there is a part called Palaikali. Many pieces of writings are there about wealth in this Palaikali. Befitting the words of Thiruvalluvar  as this world is not for the man without money in the importance of wealth had been registered in a beautiful manner that too in many places in this Palaikali. whether it is family life or life of an ascetic money is important without wealth one cannot perform ones duty perfectly in family life where men and women lead their life more meaningfully money has become a must to perform their duties more meaningfully both inside the house and outside in this world this idea registered so firmly in this Palaikali. The same has become the aim of this article too.
