Old Tamil Poetry

Translations of Tamil Poetic works that span 2000 years

Thirukkural – 546

Spear isn’t what gives victory; it is
Ruler’s sceptre, if unbowed

வேல் அன்று, வென்றி தருவது; மன்னவன்
கோல்; அதூஉம், கோடாது எனின்

Arms alone can’t assure victory. It is the fairness of the Ruler’s justice that assures victory.
