Students in Cambodian schools will soon have Tirukkural as part of their syllabus. The announcement was made by representatives of the Cambodian government recently when they were in Tamil Nadu.
Tirukkural, one of the oldest Tamil classic texts, speaks about the virtues an individual must possess, in 1,330 couplets. The text has been translated into multiple languages including international languages and is popularly known as ‘Ulaga podhumarai’ which roughly translates to ‘universal code of life’.
