Ancient Tamils wrote epics with the fundamental objectives worthy of human pursuit, i.e., Aram (Ethics), Porul (Economy), Inbam (Joy) and vīdu (Heaven). Though the epics are not happenings of facts, they teach livelihood for generations. As Valluvar says ‘what is greater than women?’ Women perform the important part in Tamil society. They have capacity to administer family as well as the country efficiently. In Sīvaka Cinthamani, Thiruthakka Thevar establishes the hero Sivakan to the core. But depicts the women characters a little lesser than him. Women are attributed with gentleness. This research tries to bring out the excellence of such women.
