Tolkappiyar mentions the Kalippa and the Paripadal as the appropriate forms of texting in the field of subjects. Kalithokai is a book sung by a song and known for its hymns. Kaikkilai, Perunthinai and Madaleruthu, which are not mentioned in other Akatthinai texts, occur only in Kalithogai. It can also be said to be a lover's introduction. Through these songs, the earliest moral traditions, events, traditions and also the glorious adaptation of Tamil and Tamils are found in Kalithogai.
