An excellent site, depicting Thirukkural in a new manner. Good, crisp explanatory notes from different eminent literary personalities is very welcome and brings together different thought processes to the reader at one go. The search facility using transliteration is a highly thoughtful feature. I found it extremely useful to search out a Kural in a couple of seconds. கோகுல்நாத் முருகேசன் அவர்களது தமிழ்ப்பணிக்கு தலை வணங்குகிறேன்.

Thank you for sharing your translation so generously. A wonderful gift and a true act of selflessness, sharing the wealth of knowledge. Thiruvalluvar's legacy lives on! I was inspired as a young learner and now will be sharing this with adult learners as well!

தங்களின் கடின உழைப்புக்கு உங்களுக்கும் உங்களுக்கு உதவியர்களுக்கும் என் இனிய மனமார்ந்த வாழ்த்துக்களுடன் நன்றிகளையும் தெரிவித்துக் கொள்கிறேன். நெடு நாட்களுக்கு பிறகு திருக்குறளை அதுவும் விளக்கத்துடன் பார்க்கும்பொழுது நான் பெருமகிழ்ச்சி அடைகிறேன்.

I have been a very great fan of Thirkkural & Thiruvalluvar from my school days. But I lost touch with it after getting on to job. I was searching for one particular kural and I stumbled upon your site. I was indeed enthralled to see Thirukkural beautifully documented and I really appreciate your effort ! It is very easy to search and the Explanation & Translations are also fantastic. Keep up the good work.
