Preface to the First Edition.

Advertisement.

It is hoped that the following collection of Tamil Proverbsmay be useful to those who are in any way connected with theinteresting people who speak that language. Examples of conciseand forcible expression are thereby furnished, which may tend toaid in the study of the language, and occasional allusions tonational, social, and religious usages may suggest heads ofvaluable enquiry, while the modes of thinking, and the naturalshrewdness of the Hindu mind may be seen through this medium. Itis presumed that the translation generally conveys the sense ofthe original, although not always with its force, nor with theelegance that might be desired. Should it be •called for, afuture edition may remedy some of the existing faults, and alsosupply deficiencies, both as to the character of thetranslation, and the number of the examples.

P. Percival. Jaffna, Christmas, 1842.

Preface to the Second Edition.

A FEW words on the history of the book now offered to the Publicin an enlarged form may not be out of place in the Preface to theSecond Edition.

Almost immediately after my arrival in this country in 1826, Ientered on my Missionary work among the Tamil people, havingacquired the rudiments of their language in England from a gentlemanwho had spent several years in the South of India and North Ceylon.Intercourse with the natives afforded me ample opportunities ofbecoming acquainted with their modes of thought and expression, and,noticing their predilection for proverbial sayings, I was led to anearly study and use of Tamil proverbs.

In 1830 I was removed to Bengal. There I became acquainted with aclergyman who had, like myself, turned his attention to the proverbsof the people among whom he dwelt. He collected a considerablenumber of Bengali proverbs, and published them, with an Englishtranslation, in a small volume, printed at the Press connected withBishop's College, Calcutta. When the Mission in Bengal with which Iwas connected was withdrawn, I returned to my former sphere of laboramong the Tamil people. As opportunity offered, I collected andarranged proverbs that I found current among them ; and in 1842printed a collection of nearly nineteen hundred with an Englishtranslation.

The First Edition having become scarce, I was urged, by manywhose judgment I felt bound to respect, to prepare matter for asecond and enlarged edition, Various causes prevented me fromimmediately undertaking the work. For several years all my time wasdevoted to the revision of the Tamil Scriptures, in conjunction withMessrs. Rhenius, Knight, Spaulding, Hutchings, and others, and inpassing the " Tentative Bible" through the Press. Subsequently avisit to England caused a further postponement of my plan, but, onmy return to Madras in 1854, my attention was again directed to thesubject of Tamil proverbs.

In the following year a Committee of gentlemen belonging to theCivil and Military Services of Government, Messrs. Stokes, Sim,Chamier, and Colonels Brown, Pears, And Bell resolved to start aJournal, for the purpose of diffusing, among the Tamil people,information social, political, rand literary.

The Committee invited my co-operation as Editor. This labor I atonce accepted, the more readily because for several months I hadbeen making arrangements to carry out 'the same idea, and hadvisited Calcutta to procure information on the subject, chiefly fromMr. Marshman.

In October 1855 the first number of the new journal, theDinavartamani, was published. Soon after this I also undertook theediting of a Telugu journal of the same scope, and bearing the samename. The circulation of these papers throughout the MadrasPresidency afforded me a good opportunity of inviting thesubscribers to assist me in the collection of Tamil and Teluguproverbs. My request was met by contributions from all parts of thecountry. The former were added to a rapidly increasing collection,while a selection from the latter was published, from week to week,along with an English translation, in the TeluguDinavartamani.

When the late Major Carr informed me that he was preparing volumeof. Telugu proverbs for the Press, I made over to him my collectiona service he thus acknowledged, in the Preface to his Work - " TheTranslator has to thank the Rev. P. Percival, Professor ofVernacular Literature, Presidency College, for kindly placing. athis disposal a MS. containing, a large number of Telugu. proverbs."

In the year 1860 my collection of Tamil proverbs contained nearlyfive thousand examples translated into English and ready for thePress. At that time, however, I was so much engaged in preparingbooks and maps, in the Vernaculars, for the Director of PublicInstruction, that I found it impossible to carry out my design ofprinting these proverbs, although I had announced it in theDinavartamani.

Then followed an interval of ten years during which I was engagedin duties absorbing all my time and attention. I had thesuperintendence of the Public Instruction Press on my hands; and,aided by the Pundits of the Presidency. College, and other competentnative scholars, had the responsibility of editing, among the worksthat issued from the Press during this period, seven dictionaries,some of which have since been re-printed.

At the beginning of 1870, having been relieved from myheavy-duties in connexion with the Presidency College and theUniversity, I resolved to print the proverbs as they stood, and soonafter this having met the Rev. G. Fryar of Manargudi, TanjoreDistrict, I learnt that he had for eight or nine years been alsoengaged in collecting Tamil proverbs, and that his collection, thenamounted to five thousand examples, and that he proposed eventuallyto publish it on the basis of my First Edition. On hearing of my ownplan, Mr. Fryar abandoned this purpose, and very generously placedhis valuable MS at my disposal, from which I obtained severalhundred new proverbs.

Shortly after this, again, one of my compositors brought me anold-looking MS containing over fifteen hundred examples. A volumeprinted in 1861 at Vepery, and containing nearly four thousandexamples, was also put into my hands. But these collections yieldedvery few proverbs not already contained in my own MS. A Pundit ofthe Government Normal School furnished me with about a hundred freshexamples, and a small MS belonging to a Native Christian lady ofTanjore contained a few curious proverbs that I had not seen before.These related to Christian character, and evidently originated inanything but a benign feeling.

Altogether my collections in 1872 exceeded fifteen thousand,. butthey only yielded the number contained in this volume. That theoutcome of so large a gathering should be comparatively small mayeasily be accounted for by the fact that the several collections, invery many instances, contained the same proverbs. It must be bornein mind that my own collection, which eventually absorbed theothers, was made during a period extending over forty years, andthat, through the medium of the Dinavartamani, I had receivedcontributions from all parts of the Madras Presidency, as well fromNorth Ceylon. Hence it was but natural that I should anticipatecollectors who come into the field later.

But for the omission of many of the admired Aphorisms of theancient Tamil matron, Avvayar, this collection would have been somewhat larger. Thoughthese Aphorisms are compositions of unequalled brevity and beauty, Ihave, for the most part, omitted them, because they are generallytaught in schools, and indeed regarded as part of a school course.En passant I may mention that seven or eight years ago I printed andpublished them, in a separate form, with an analysis and translationin English, and that a Second Edition of this work is now in thePress. Bible proverbs, and those obviously Sanskrit, are alsoomitted, because this collection is designed to be Dravidian.Translations from Western proverbs I have for the same reason leftout.

In this edition, as in the First, the proverbs are arranged inalphabetical order. This of course is the easiest method. Some yearsago I thought of classifying the subjects somewhat after the plan ofAmarakosha, a Sanskrit Dictionary, wherein objects are divided intoseparate classes, as Supernals, Infernals, Men, Animals, &c.

A division of subjects on the principle of a commonplace book wasalso thought of, and a friend whose judgment I greatly respect,suggested an index.

Although each of the methods referred to has much to recommendit, at length I gave them all up, and resolved to adopt theeasiest—the alphabetical arrangement. Had I decided otherwise, thework must have been delayed ; and as in my case " the day is farspent," I might not have been able to accomplish my purpose.

On the analogy of the proverbial expressions current in allcountries, many scraps of sentences, mere allusions, similitudes,and the like, are included in this collection, though not proverbsin the proper sense of the term. The objects of Nature, habits, anddispositions of animals, government, agriculture and commerce,domestic and religious usages supply a large number of proverbialexpressions. The incidents of classical literature contribute manythat prove highly acceptable to those who have any acquaintance withthe sources of Hindu history. So largely do the stories of ancientwriters contribute that the fact has originated a proverb universalamong the people of Bengal.

What is there after Bharata ?

A glance at a few pages of this volume will suffice to show thatthe people among whom such proverbs are current, cannot be ignorantof the laws of God. Vox Populi, vox Dei, may be applied to thisaspect of many of the Dravidian proverbs :

" The people's voice, the voice of God we call ;
And what are Proverbs, but the people's voice ?
Coined first and common made, by common choice ;
Then sure they must have weight, and truth withal."

I may be permitted to say a few words on the utility of a volumelike that now offered to the public. A foreigner destined to spendthe best part of his life among the Tamil people will find theirproverbs of inestimable value, In these pithy and instructivesayings a vast fund of information will be found, not to be obtainedfrom ordinary books, and not at all from books, designed for Westernminds ; - practical maxims, resulting from the experience of manygenerations, maxims that 'will be sought in vain in books of modernorigin.

The translation will, I hope, be generally approved. In someinstances I have found it difficult to ascertain the meaning ; andin many the application has equally puzzled both myself and othersto whom I have applied for information. In some cases I may havebeen misled by those who might be more disposed to hazard aconjecture than to acknowledge ignorance. For the benefit offoreigners the occasional notes might have been advantageouslyincreased in number, but usages differ so much that great caution isrequired in this matter. So varied is the operation of race,language, religion, and climate, upon the character and socialusages of the Hindus who occupy the vast area of India that it isunsafe to assume generally that what is common in one Province is soin others.

In conclusion, any one interested in this work will oblige bysending me proverbs not found in the collection,, or any suggestionsfor improving the next Edition. Though I may not hope to see anotheredition, my son-in-law, Mr. W. A. Symonds, who has long studiedTamil proverbs with, great interest, will, should it be called for,undertake the editing.
