Tholkappiyam has not only framed rules for letters and words in world language, but it has also assigned certain regulations for life. Tholkappiyar’s views on love emotions can be found in Civaka Cintamani Gunamalayaar Elambagam. Gunamalayaar Elambagam express the Gunamalay’s love for her lover, her thoughts, feelings, her love sickness, her mental and physical condition and her thought to give up her life if she is unable to meet her lover again. Gunamalay’s love emotions and feelings match rightly with Tholkappiyar.
