Singapore, represented by a tiny dot on the world map, became a Republic on 9 August 1965. It celebrated its silver jubilee in 1990. Within the short span of 25 years, Singapore has made tremendous social and economic progress. Similarly, it has also witnessed remarkable progress in the field of creative literature such as traditional poetry, songs for children, new poetry, novels and dramas. The objectives of this thesis are to provide a critical evaluation of these works in Tamil.
