Uttarakhand government has decided to install the statue of Tamil saint-poet Thiruvalluvar in the lawns of Haridwar’s Mela Bhawan on the bank of the Ganga with Chief Minister Harish Rawat writing a reassuring letter to his TN counterpart in a bid to assuage hurt sentiments.
In this regards, a team of senior IAS officials finalized a spot inside the Mela Bhawan lawns where a pedestal is being built to install the statue of the great poet. Thiruvalluvar is a celebrated Tamil poet and philosopher whose contribution to Tamil literature is the Thirukkural, a work on ethics. He was born either in Thiru Mylai (Mylapore) Chennai in Tamil Nadu or in ThirunayanarKuruchi, a village in Kanyakumari District of Tamil Nadu.
So let’s discuss some questions related to this post:
1. Name the state which has decided to install the statue of Thiruvalluvar?
2. Who is Thiruvalluvar and he belongs to which state ?
