Why is politics called Arasiyal? The word literally means Science of King/Royalty. I always thought the government was the servant of the people. Naive me..

    Arasu = government.
    Politics is the study of government of states and other political units (google),

    Government is of / by / for the people! (AL)

    Anna adhu ellam nadakuthanu teriyala…Arasiyala idhu ellam sadaranam appa (Mr.Goundamani)!

    dei lets us assume your version is corect.. even then, how can politics be ‘science’ or ‘study’ of government?

  3. Vijai says:

    Arasiyal = Arasu + Iyal

    Arasu – Government. Close your eyes and think, you will associate Arasu with King, Ruler, CM, PM. Ruling etc etc

    Iyal – Among other meanings, it also means To be associated with or to be possible

    So, to be associated with Arasu or Arasu to be possible is Arasiyal
