Here is an interesting story, about how authors had to seek approvals from different sections of the audience for whom the story has been written.
According to a tale, when Kamban had composed his Ramayana, he wanted it to be accepted publicly in the temple of Lord Vishnu at Srirangam. When he went there with his manuscript, the assembled priests declined from accepting it, as they were competent only in Sanskrit, and Kamban had written his version of the epic in Tamil. They expressed their inability to judge the epic, but suggested a way out by telling him that about 3000 scholars of the Shiva Temple at Chidambaram were experts in Tamil, and if he could seek their approval, then they would have no problem. Chidambaram was both a centre of pilgrimage and learning.
