Placing tombstone for dead is a significant ritual in Tamil tradition. This ritual marks the beginning of worship. It seems that the practice of placing tombstone was before the time of Tolkappiyar. The ancient people believed in ghosts and believed that there was a deity under the tree. Idol worship was also significant among ancient peoples. It is also proved that people of Harappa Mohanjataro worshiped Shiva Linga. KK Pillai says that this worship is a form of Palkuri worship, and if research confirms that Tamil people belong to this ancient culture, Palkuri worship has existed among Tamil people thousands of years ago. Ancient Tamil worship is the forerunner of today's religious doctrine. Due to Vedic influence there have been changes in religious tradition. The religious doctrine of the ancient Hindus was completely outside the Vedic scriptures. The deity symbols of the Thinaikudis are a reflection of the caste. It indicates the status of ancestor worship. The gods were felt to be present in the house, as life companions.</p> Vennila N Copyright (c) 2023 Vennila N 2023-08-26 2023-08-26 1 9 10.54392/ijmrd2331 Archaeologically known Town names in Pathupaatu <p>Names are symbols that have arisen to denote an object, a person, a place. Toponyms are names that distinguish a place from other places, just like a thing or a person. Place names or town names are very old. The idea that "place names must have originated when the human mind decided to live and take shelter in one place" is also worthy of discussion. The news we know through toponymy greatly supports the study of our historical, cultural and linguistic fields and without toponymy, research on history and culture cannot be considered complete. Among many sources like literature, charters, rhymes, and other folk references, the usefulness of the inscription is very great to know about town names. In that way, this article seeks to investigate the place names revealed through the inscriptions in Pathupaatu.</p> Manimegalai S Copyright (c) 2023 Manimegalai S 2023-09-05 2023-09-05 10 19 10.54392/ijmrd2332 Reflecting Feminism in the works of Women Writers <p>Women writers have portrayed the challenges that women undergo in their family, male domination, domestic violence in their work of art.
