They include abiding to justice, living with good deeds, speaking the truth, truth alone triumphs, forbidding adultery, sowing good deeds will bring you good things, as you sow so you reap, karma is a boomerang and other numerous moral quoting’s were implemented in the lives of the Tamilians. The educated women from the Kongu Velir were called as ‘Manakiyar’ in the Perunkadhai- as like the mother of the bride send her off with the valuables out of her love. This example is said to be a ‘natural aspect of mothers’ by Kongu people.
