He was a disciple of Agastya,who wrote Vedic Hymns,a scholar in Sanskrit,Agathyam ,Tamil Grammar,
Tholkaapiyar expresses his desire to streamline Tamil,

Agastya could not have written Aindhiram in Tamil as the First Tamil Grammar Agathiyam was by Agastya,which has been lost?
Why write two books on the same subject?
Or ,as Agastya is a schloar in both Tamil and Sanskrit,Aindhiram could be in Tamil?
