The intersectional areas featured in the literature are the abilities of the Creator who seek to express the living style condition of the people in a realistic manner. The reason is that a community-based creator of the idealized belt. ‘Mudarporul’, ‘Karuporul’ and ‘Uriporul’ pertaining to a specific landscape of ‘Tinai’ may occur in a verse belonging to another ‘Tinai’. This transgression is called ‘Tinai Mayakkam’. If ‘Mudarporul’ and ‘Karuporul’ insist there natural space where is ‘Uriporul’ not necessery. Otherwise, if ‘Mudarporul’ and ‘Karuporul’ create cultural space it is not possible to eliminate ‘Uriporul’ from create themes based on cultural space. ‘Tinai’ is pointing to the man-made cultural space. Just a literary creator, who is not only, delivers a natural space but also he builds humans’ cultural space.
