This article seeks to uncover the historical data embedded in the context in which it is customary to view Purathinai grammars as mere rules for literature. Human history involves a series of changes from the social status of the hunter to the social civilization of possession. The grammars from Vetsi to Vanchittinai trace such a historical continuum. Extrinsic grammars set out the reasons for the beginning of the wars, the activities of the Wetsi, Karanti departments, the history of the labor and Noci departments. This article reveals that the stories told in grammatical texts such as Tolkappiyam to Exodus Venpa Malai take up the social history of possession and the reasons for the wars.
