Kural 119: (One of the great Kural)

    • கோ என்பது (க்+ஓ)
      க், க – எனும் ஒலி எடுத்தல் என பொருள் தரும், ( கை, கண்,கரம்,களை,கள்ளன்,கல்,கல்வி etc..) போன்ற சொற்கள் நல்ல உதாரணங்கள்.
      ஓ – எனும் ஒலி பிரிந்து இருத்தல் எனும் பொருள் தரும். ஓலை, ஓடு, ஓசை, ஓம், இன்னும் பல சொற்கள்.

      இதை இணைத்தால் கோ என்பது, “பிரிந்து இருந்து + கிடைத்தல்” எனும் பொருள் தரும்.

      அரசன் என்பவன் தனித்தன்மை பொருந்தி உயர்ந்து இருப்பவன்,இறைவனும் அவ்வாறே, இதனால் இவர்களுக்கு “கோ” என்ற பெயர் பொருந்தும். think about Sanskrit KOpuram(can be gained from distance) and Tamil KOl(stick)(used to gain from distance)

      I think you got it. Thank you for commenting.

    • Thankyou for your support,
      As I have given, kO means gain+separated, that’s you can see/view/know from being separated, it can refer to these,
      that which is at a height, tall, etc.. and indirectly refers to rich people, famous ones, kings etc…who are known to distant places.

      Chadayan – refers to the hair chadai/pinnal may be the name kOchadayan, refers to one who has a famous chadai, or the famous one with the chadai.
