ALWAR TIRUNAGARI

There lived a royal poet called Kambanattu. A war with a council of 300 learned men under him in the Sanga days of the Pandya kings of Madurai. Every poet in those days had to submit his work to a mystical test by that Academy before he was declared as a true poet. Some of the members who heard the fame of Saint Nammalwar proclaimed by his disciple Madurakavi, took objection to his praise and demanded of him to produce is Master and his works before the august members of the Pandya Academy so that
they might receive the formal imprimatur of the literary luminaries assembled there. "My Saint will not deign to stir from his place. Take  this scrap of his work", replied Madurakavi handing over a palm leaf fragment with the first words of our Saint’s hymn X. 5. 1 of Tiruvaimozhi, "Kannan Kazhalinai" (the feet of Lord Krishna).
