It is remarkable how Valluvar goes to the fundamentals of enlightened human conduct. The inference in this context can only be that the society in which he lived was also quite enlightened. The teaching of the Lord Jesus Christ is exactly the same (Luke 6, 31). One should not do to others what one would not like to be done unto oneself. The reference to... 'neighbour', is also reminiscent of the Parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10: 30-31).

Their tastes may be different.'
