Keywords: Parables in Thirukkural, New Parables, Attru, Attuppa, Aniya, Okka

Abstract

Comparing one object with another is a parable. When comparing, they explain what they do not know with what they know. When this is explained, the parables come out openly and implicitly. Thiruvalluvar has used the simile matrix in Thirukkural and the metaphors born on the basis of it, etc., in order to beautify his book. Thirukkural, written in two lines, contains some new parables. There are new parables such as attru, aniya, okka, etc.
