Description

The pan-Indian nature of Tamil culture is manifest in their literature, art impulses, aesthetic sense, socioeconomic and religious conditions.

This book has presented a cross section of the communities-the king and commoner, aristocrat and agriculturist-highlighting their life, customs, obligathetions, etc.

It shows that the temple was the hub of the society and the festivals were a unifying factor among the people. The book is well illustrated too.
