10 July 2010 13 Comments

Hi All,

This is my 5th tamil poem and I loved writing this one.. Once again I give the translation in the end. I enjoyed the similes used through out…

Aval Azhagin Ragasiyam

Aval Azhagin Ragasiyam enna?
PaaliluLLa dhrakshai pazhampol minnum avaL vizhigaLO?
Niagara aruvipol vizhum neeLamana koondalO?
AvaL sivappu uthadugaLo?
Nisabdhathai kalaikkum avaL sindhiya sirippO?
AvaL sirikkaiyil minnum nakshathira palgaLo?
AvaL Azhagin Ragasiyam enna?

AvaL Azhagin Ragasiyam enna?
Vishwamitra-raiye mayakkum avaL mEnakai udalO?
Vaanavil-ai eezhuthu kattirukkum avaL vaNNa saelaiyO?
Jhal Jhal endru manasai thalaravaikkum avaL golusin oliyO?
AvaL Azhagin Ragasiyam enna?

AvaL Azhagin Ragasiyam puriyavillaiya Kalaikadhala?
Solgiren keL
Parthiban kangaL-ukku kaanum andha kizhiyin kangaL-pol.. AvaL manasai paar…
Puriyum AvaL Azhagin Ragasiyam..

AvaL manasiluLLa eeram azhagu..
Pinju kuzhandhai-yidam kaatum paasam azhagu..
Mudhiyor-gazhukku kudukkum mariyadhai azhagu..
AvaL azhagin ragasiyam sivappu uthadalla..
Indha ulagathaiye veLLaiadikkum mudhal paNi mazhai-pol..
Kapadam illa manasu-dhaan avaL azhagin chidambara ragasiyam..
AvaL oru sangeedham.. Kadavulin Sirpam…
AvaLai varnipadhu..
Azhagiyin azhagukke azhagu serpadhupol kalaikadhala..

Here are is the translation..

Kalai kaadhalan (A lover of art) sees an extremely beautiful woman and he is confused to find out what makes her really beautiful.. He asks the narrator what is make the woman beautiful.. Is it her eyes.. which appears like a grapes thrown in milk.. Or is it her long hair.. which is falling like a niagara falls.. Or is it her red lips.. Or is it her smile which breaks the silence.. or is it her glittering teeth when she smiles.. which look like stars in the sky..

Aval Azhagin Ragasiyam enna?
PaaliluLLa dhrakshai pazhampol minnum avaL vizhigaLO?
Niagara aruvipol vizhum neeLamana koondalO?
AvaL sivappu uthadugaLo?
Nisabdhathai kalaikkum avaL sindhiya sirippO?
AvaL sirikkaiyil minnum nakshathira palgaLo?
AvaL Azhagin Ragasiyam enna?

Our Kalai kadhalan continues to wonder.. what makes the women so beautiful.. Is it her body which is so curvy as the menaka’s body which disturbed the Rajarishi Vishwamitra? Or is it her colour saree.. The women seems to have pulled the rainbow out of the sky and wearing it as a colourful saree.. Or is the sound of her anklets.. which is making every’s heart dance.. What is her beauty? Why is she beautiful..

AvaL Azhagin Ragasiyam enna?
Vishwamitra-raiye mayakkum avaL mEnakai udalO?
Vaanavil-ai eezhuthu kattirukkum avaL vaNNa saelaiyO?
Jhal Jhal endru manasai thalaravaikkum avaL golusin oliyO?
AvaL Azhagin Ragasiyam enna?

The narrator tells Kalai Kadhala.. that he can explain her real beauty.. Just like how Partibhan (Arjuna in Mahabharatha) looked at the eye of the parrot in the shooting contest.. without getting distracted by other details.. Just look at the heart of the woman.. And you will know where her real beauty lies..

AvaL Azhagin Ragasiyam puriyavillaiya Kalaikadhala?
Solgiren keL
Parthiban kangaL-ukku kaanum andha kizhiyin kangaL-pol.. AvaL manasai paar…
Puriyum AvaL Azhagin Ragasiyam..

I am a bit lost for words to translate.. as always πŸ˜›

The narrator continues.. The beauty of the women lies in the softness of her heart.. (The actual word I want to say is that her heart is not hard as a stone.. By being soft.. doesnt mean that she is weak).. The way she loves the small kids is a beauty.. The way she respects the elders is a beauty.. Her real beauty is not her red lips.. but in her heart.. which is like a pure white snow.. which paints the world white in the first snowfall.. The beauty of her heart the real secret (beautifully compared to chidambaram’s secret) of her beauty..

AvaL manasiluLLa eeram azhagu..
Pinju kuzhandhai-yidam kaatum paasam azhagu..
Mudhiyor-gazhukku kudukkum mariyadhai azhagu..
AvaL azhagin ragasiyam sivappu uthadalla..
Indha ulagathaiye veLLaiadikkum mudhal paNi mazhai-pol..
Kapadam illa manasu-dhaan avaL azhagin chidambara ragasiyam..
AvaL oru sangeedham.. Kadavulin Sirpam…
AvaLai varnipadhu..
Azhagiyin azhagukke azhagu serpadhupol kalaikadhala..

The women is a music in herself.. A divine creation.. A wonderful statue.. Describing the women is like adding beauty to a beauty, O dear Kalai Kadhala..
