Like woman and money, they thrive but with support, and flourish only with protective patronage. Normally under the shade of royalty and aristocracy they bloom and become immortal by blowing off the gloom enveloping life with their works.  The Kozhikode Tali - the seat of Lord Siva has had the proud privilege of extending such patronage to the intellectual luminaries, who produced masterpieces for the world to profit by. The enlightened Zamorins shone as Zamorins of letters than the Zamorins of petty kingdoms enjoying transitory sway over some square miles of land.

Their patronage is second to none. The highly cultured Lords left behind a glittering chapter in the annals of Kerala history which immortality hugging it fondly gave them fresh lease of life from time to time. This activity was carried on in the august presence of Lord Siva, who seeing unseen sealed it with approval. Regular literary banquets - Vidwatsabhas were held giving opportunities to the men of letters to demonstrate the peaks scaled by them in the fields of poetry, theology, drama etc. The Zamorins, like Janakamaharshi of Mithila, the Bhoja of Kalidasa days, the Pandyan Kings of Sangam period or Vijayanagara kings of Bhuvanavijayam times presided over the Kavyagoshtis, Avadhnakridas etc, to honouring' the learned celebrities by conferring titles and endowing them with properties. Yearly once, for a week this intellectual feast was conducted during Tulam and it went by the dignified name of Revati pattattanam.
