(pronunciation = 'vEl viruth-tham')
By N.V. Karthikeyan
Another one of Arunagirinathar's literary work is the Vel Viruththam. This is a work of 10 poems. The Vel is glorified by Arunagirinathar in all his other works in a scattered manner. Not being satisfied with them, Arunagirinathar seems to have chosen to dedicate a small work exclusively to sing the praises, glory, greatness, and the various achievements of the Vel.
