Abstract

Kaikilai is the lust that appears only in one of the two, male and female. In short, a kaikilai is a one-sided love affair. Kai means smallness. kilai means relationship. A petty relationship or a prideless relationship means a branch. The content explains that the branch is monogamous. During Tolkappiyar period, it was called kaikilai to make love to a woman who had not reached sexual maturity. A branch was also said to be masculine. A woman is not told to fall in love with a man who has not reached puberty. However, the unilateral preference of the male and female who has reached puberty is ignored. This is evidenced by the fact that the Kaikilai song sung by Nakkannaiyar about Amurmallan is compiled in Purananooru (83, 84, and 85). Masculine hymns kalithogai in the hymns (56, 57, 58, and 109). It is worth noting that all the songs in the muthollayiram are kaikilai songs about one-sided love. A branch is also a member of the Kalambaka. Reliability takes branches both internally and externally. It calls the initial stage of love the inner branch. Showing love to an immature woman is called introversion. The puraporul Venba Malai depicts the one-sided love between a pubescent man and woman. Often talking about veils, the Puraporul venpamalai also excludes one-sided love as subliminal.
