Abstract

The life of Tamils is in harmony with nature. Sangam literature is a great repository of Tamil culture. Akananuru, one of the works of Sangam literature, is rich in unlimited natural resources. Trees, plants, creepers and flowers are found in most of the poems in descriptions of nature. The most important of the descriptions of nature is the flowers. The fragrance of these flowers attracts everyone. In the poems of the Ahananuru we find the natural fragrance of the flowers, their uses, the seasons in which they bloom and the women who adorned the flowers on their heads.
