      Dear Prasanna,
      You can buy Pattuppaattu at SRM university. They usually ship it to you the next day. You may give them a call to place an order. Paari Nilayam in Chennai, Saiva Sitthaandha Noorpathippu Kazhagam in Thiruchi and Vijaya Pathippagam in Coimbatore sell it as well. Thanks for your interest in buying the book!
