It is a treasure not only for the Tamils but also for the entire humanity. It has a universal appeal and acceptability. To publish a book of such great values is a great privilege for us. The reason for bringing out the Tamil work and its meaning in simple, lucid English is to make the renowned Indian classic better known to the people of the entire world.
