Thirumazhisai AzhwAr's Birth star

Dear BhakthAs : Thirumazhisai  was born during Thai Maasam ,
when the constellation of Maham was in ascendance . 
Jan 16 th was the day when Maham and Pooram 
jointly were in ascendance . They follow each other . 
Maham comes  first . Pooram follows .

My mind was still  full of ANDAL  and Aadi Pooram .
Hence I have mistakenly attributed Thai Pooram 
as the day of Thirunakshathram for THirumazhisai 
AzhwAr. That is an avoidable mistake on my part. 
Please excuse me and correct my posting to read 
Thai Maham as his birth star and month .
Thanks very much for your understanding .
