Thamizh thaai vaazhthu - Official Prayer Hymn of Tamilnadu Govt, and
thamizh thaai vaazhthu -1 (as recited in Tamilnadu functions)
Here are the original verses of Sundaram Pillai from which the current edited versions are drawn from:
thamizh thaai vaazhthu -2Here is another verse devoted to Tamil Goddess that my wife recalls learning while she was in school. She does not remember the author of this verse. If you do know who it is, please let me know so that I can give proper acknowledgment to the author here.
Thiruvalluvar Day and
Maraimalai AdigaL did extensive research on the date of thiruvaLLuvar. While
presiding over the Thiruvalluvar Day conference of Thiruvalluvar
Kazhagam held on 18 Jan 1935, he declared that thiruvaLLuvar was born 30 years
before the birth of Jesus and suggested Tamils to keep the Tamil Calender with
this as the reference. His suggestion that the Tamil Thiruvalluvar year can be
obtained by adding 31 years to the Christian Calender is being followed since then.
Hence Year 1999 (B.C) is equivalent to year 2030 in Thiruvalluvar Calender.
