The universal unification of the Lord siva and sakthi was the result of creation of woman. The woman was glorified by the poets like valluvan, kamban, and Ilango and they were felicitated by Bharathi. "Panjali Sabatham" was a revengeful epic of Bharathi and he created Panjali as an eminent equivalent to the prisoned persona Seetha, and virally virtuous Kannagi. The speaking skill of these three characters was exhibited marvellously by the creativity of the poets. The object of this research is to exhibit the exuberant speaking skill of these characters. The argumentative speech of Kannagi to prove the innocence of her husband towards the Pandiya King and Seetha against the pleading Ravana, and Panjali who was ashamed by her relatives were taken for research. The research also brings out the heroic nature of these characters through their speech was the reason for the stability of these three epics.
