Myth And Legend
King Shenbaga Pandian of the Pandian dynasty, Sangam period, more than 2,500 years ago, wondered if a woman’s hair was naturally fragrant. He held a poetry competition to find the answer. A poor poet, Dharumi, prayed to Shiva to help him compose a poem so that he could win the contest. Shiva granted his wish and composed a poem for him that seemed to imply that a woman’s hair was naturally fragrant. The king was pleased and Dharumi was declared the winner.
Nakkeeran, the royal court poet, found a flaw in the poem. Shiva asked him to explain the flaw. Nakkeeran said that Shiva’s verse implied that a woman’s tresses had a natural fragrance, when in fact, the fragrance was a result of the flowers that were used to decorate the hair, scents and the incense, particularly sambrani, that was used to dry the hair.
The mythological story narrates that an angry Shiva — upset that Nakkeeran found fault with the poem He had composed — suddenly opened His third eye, burning Nakkeeran to death in the process. Later, however, Shiva blessed him so that Nakkeeran could return to life
