The Thinai based life of Tamils is a formalized one. Such Tamils set up jobs in their land where they are lived. Depending on the land (kurinji (hilly/mountain region), palai (parched/dry lands), mullai (pastoral tract), marutam (wet/ agricultural lands) and neital (coastal area)), they also developed their business. They are the first disciplines to follow. Extraordinary works have also uncovered remarkable art. With the grammar of these internal corporations, approach Silapathikaram and explore the claim that he has made.
