When we read a quote from Plato or Confucius, we seldom remember that we are reading the English-translated version. We do not worry about the lost meaning during translation or parts where the translator inadvertently brought in his own biases. This work is intended to take Thirukkural to non-native speakers. The translators have kept in mind the mindset of target language readers’ and have managed to strike a fine balance between the two languages and the two cultures. The translators have conscioulsly ensured that this translation has the same effect as the original author intented, thereby ensuring that the reader realises and relishes the value of the work.

About the Authors

Anantharani, an English Lecturer with 30+ years of
teaching at MVM Government Arts College, Dindigul
had great reverence for Thirukkural—An ancient work in
Tamil by poet Valluvar. She was keen that the essence of
this work be made available across a wider spectrum of
audience. This thought had spurred her to start work on
this translation.

Bhagath is a first generation entrepreneur managing a technology company focusing on the fourth industrial
revolution and cyber-physical systems. He took it upon
himself to complete and publish this work of his mother,
due to her untimely demise on account of Covid. He has
tried his best to stick to the guidelines left by his mother
through her only video-recorded online guest lecture.
