Thiruvalluvar was a celebrated Tamil poet and philosopher whose contribution to Tamil literature is the Thirukkural, a work on ethics. Thiruvalluvar is thought to have lived sometime between the second century BC and the eighth century AD. This estimate is based on linguistic analysis of his writings, as there is no archaeological evidence for when he lived.

When Thiruvalluvar compiled his famous Tamil couplets into Thirukkural, he is considered to have meant it to throw light on aram (virtue), porul (realities) and imbam (pleasures) of life
