Research is the outcome of the shrunken brain, started its search from the soul. Researchers are the ambassadors of learning. The lifelong process called learning determines the height and depth of the research. Development is not possible without research and researchers. This concept has been well established in Siruppanjamoolam, one among the eighteen lesser text anthology of Tamil literature. A collection of 100 poems under this title was written by Kariyaasan- the author. This critical study, attempts to focus on the status of researchers during post Sangam period with reference to Siruppanjamoolam. However the discussion unveiled the relative concepts such as public views on education, duty of research scholar, relationship between the research scholar and the supervisor. Rather surprise to witness the concern of this Tamil anthology on research coursework. The description of guidelines to researchers is significant and equivalent to Research Methodology –a core course for contemporary research students.
