Keywords:Koodalilaithal, Andal, Manikkavasagar, Panniru thirumurai, Nalaira Thivya Prabantham
During the period of Bhakti Literature, the romantic policies in Sangam Literature got a new structure in which people started to shower their love on God. In Sangam Literature, the lady love longs for the love and the return of her lover from a far off place. This concept of longingness is conventional and is seen in Bhakti Literature too. The longing for the lover’s arrival is mentioned briefly in Saiva and Vainava Literatures. In Vainava Literature, the longingness for the love of her man and his arrival is hinted in Andal Pasuram and Thirumangai Azhvar Pasuram. The same theme is hinted in the poetry of Navukkarasar and Nakkeerar in Saiva Literature. Only in the songs of Manickkavasagar, the theme is explained in an elaborate manner.
