Thirukkural Competition is being organized by JK FOUNDATION in all the districts of Tamilnadu and Pondicherry with the motive of enhancing the interest over Thirukkural and Tamil literature.
The Founder-Trustee of JK foundation has viewed a report in the daily news paper that the family holding 4 members (Husband, wife and 2 Daughters) has committed suicide because of huge loss in the business for the past 5 years. The head of that family wrote a letter before committing the suicide that he did not follow 8 Thirukkural during his lifetime; if he might have followed those Thirukkural he might not have faced those many problems during his lifetime. So the founder of JK Foundation has decided to conduct this Thirukkural Competition in order to avoid such situation once again.
