There is no flower name denoting the love affairs in Tamil poems excepting the four; Kuruntu, Mullai, (Marutam and Neital).
There is no corns to eat in the heroic family other than the fours; Varagu (black millet), Tinai (yellow millet), Kol (brown millet) and Avarai (beans).
There is no relatives to the family other than the four kinfolk; Tudiyan, Panan, Patraiyan and Kadamban.
