Thirukkural has been divided into three major divisions, viz., Virtue, Wealth and Love. It has in all 1330 Verses. The Verses are in the form of couplets, rich in meaning, rhythm and diction. No area of human life has been left untouched by this great work by the Tamil saint.. Contemporary Management thoughts on the selected topics are explained in brief, interlaced with relevant couplets of Thirukkural that contain in them the wisdom of Thiruvalluvar.
