Bungee Kudhiyal Anubhavam

25 July 2010 11 Comments

Hi All,

I wrote my 8th tamil poem.. This is based on my experience yesterday.. I attended Bloomberg’s holiday party near High Barnet! I did one of the crazy things I wanted to do for a long time.. I did the Strospheric Bungee Jump.. I liked the experience.. You can see the video below.. I came back in the night and wrote this poem which describes my experience..

This is my personal favourite and my best work till date.. Please see the 2 minute video first and then you can enjoy the poem even more..

Bungee Kudhiyal Anubhavam

Yesu naadhan polae nindru..
Rama Naamam paadinaen..
Melae poi thirumbuvaenO..
Newton-ai dhaan nambinaen..

Kannai moodi kannai therandhaal
Neela vaana meghamae..
Vaayumandalathil midhakkum sogasu..
Verum sila nodigaL kaalamae…

SuzhaLil sikkiya vaergal polae..
Surundu.. Urundu.. MiranDana..
Gadhi illaamal Vizhumbodhu..
Vayiril.. Pattaampootchigal parandhana..

Kattirukkum kayiru kooda..
thuLLi thuLLi kudhithadhae…
Bhoomiyil En KaalpadumoO…
Manasu.. kenji kenji thavithadhae..

Vaeru oruvan aadumbodhu..
“Bungee”-kku kudhithayae..
Un udalin malae irukkum aasai
Arpudha anubhavathaiyae thaduthadhae..

Udalin Asaiyai yeriyada..
Ulaga niyathi puriyum..
Maele sendru paarada..
Bhoomiyin ragasiyam theriyum..

Maele thooki yeriyum munnae..
Manidhan perumai therindhadhu..
Paravai Polae parakka vaikkum
Manidhan moolai periyadhu…

Keezhae vizhundhu yezhundhu paarthaal..
Kadavul mahimai purindhadhu..
Paravai polae parandhaal puriyum..
Manidha pirappae siriyadhu…

Here is the translation..

I was standing there like Jesus Christ.. with my hands streched.. I was very afraid.. I was praying Lord Rama.. Having no clue what would happen to me.. Will I ever come back to earth? I just trust Newton and gravity to bring me back safely πŸ™‚

Yesu naadhan polae nindru..
Rama Naamam paadinaen..
Melae poi thirumbuvaenO..
Newton-ai dhaan nambinaen..

I closed my eyes and opened it.. All I could see was blue coloured sky.. I was floating in the atmosphere.. And that experience lasted only for a few seconds until the following happened..

Kannai moodi kannai therandhaal
Neela vaana meghamae..
Vaayumandalathil midhakkum sogasu..
Verum sila nodigaL kaalamae…

Just like the roots of the trees struck in a whirlpool.. I twisted and turned and I was stuck there in fear.. I had no control over myself.. And then I had the free fall…. Absolutely nothing to hold on to.. I was having so many butterflies flying my stomach..

SuzhaLil sikkiya vaergal polae..
Surundu.. Urundu.. MiranDana..
Gadhi illaamal Vizhumbodhu..
Vayiril.. Pattaampootchigal parandhana..

It was not over just then.. The rope bounced back again & again.. My heart pounced even more.. wondering I would ever place my feet on the ground..

Kattirukkum kayiru kooda..
thuLLi thuLLi kudhithadhae…
Bhoomiyil En KaalpadumoO…
Manasu.. kenji kenji thavithadhae..

From this point.. You can hear a wise man speaking..

While watching others.. You were jumping to do the Bungee… But your love for your body.. would have prevented your from experiencing this awesome experience..

Vaeru oruvan aadumbodhu..
“Bungee”-kku kudhithayae..
Un udalin malae irukkum aasai
Arpudha anubhavathaiyae thaduthadhae..

Throw away your love for your body.. And you will realize the principles of the world! Just go up and see the beauty.. You will visualize the secrets of the planet earth!

Udalin Asaiyai yeriyada..
Ulaga niyathi puriyum..
Maele sendru paarada..
Bhoomiyin ragasiyam theriyum..

Just before you were thrown up.. You could see the smartness of man!
Man’s brain is soo great that it can make you fly like a bird..

Maele thooki yeriyum munnae..
Manidhan perumai therindhadhu..
Paravai Polae parakka vaikkum
Manidhan moolai periyadhu…

But when you go up and fall down.. You can appreciate the greatness of God! Only when you fly like a bird.. You will realize that mankind is such an insignifacant part of this mother nature.

Keezhae vizhundhu yezhundhu paarthaal..
Kadavul mahimai purindhadhu..
Paravai polae parandhaal puriyum..
Manidha pirappae siriyadhu…

Loved the jump.. And loved the poem even more! Personally, the best poem I have written till date!
