Women have displayed their talent on par with men in singing Sangam songs. The foremost among them is Avvaiyar. Marokkatthu Nappasalaiyar, Bhoothapandiandevi, Maakothai, Pari Women, etc. have sung their songs in bereavement. Among the poets who sang so, the friendship of Avvaiyar Adhiyaman, the songs she sang with great sorrow at the time of his death, and the friendship of Marokkatthu Nappasalaiyar with Cholan Nalankilli spoke of the fact that when she came as a singer and touched him, Nappasalaiyar was in a state of complete suffering.
