Kaatru

14 August 2010 2 Comments

Hi All..

This my 11th poem – Kaatru, which means The Wind.. I was hit by a strong wind when I was walking near Thames a few weeks back.. From that time.. I wanted to write something describing the various forms of wind.. When I sat out to write this.. I just had two words in my mind.. Thaendral (Breeze) and Puyal (Strom).. But eventually I thought of various forms of wind.. 🙂 Here comes my poem.. I am extremely satisfied with this one.. Hope you enjoy it as well..


Kaatru

Koondhalil sikkal uruvaakum Naradhana nee?
Jhannalai padapadakka vaikkum mandiravaadhiya nee?
Kannil maNN thoovaraye.. Maha asurana nee?
Oyaalmal sutthugiraaye.. kaLaippadaivaaya nee?
Adey.. Yaarada Nee?

MalargaL malarvadhu yennale..
Thaeniyai yeriyuvaen.. adhan munnale..
Parakkum vaNNa paravaigal yennale..
PattangaL parakkudhu un kann munnale..

Naan Thunbam!
Nooru paerai kollavandha puyal kaatrum naan..
ANu aNuvaai niruthi kollum suruttin pugaiyum naan..

Naan Inbam!
Un mudhal irukkathil avaL vidum perumoochum naan..
ViLaiyaadum kannanin Kuzhal paechum naan..

YiLam thaendral kondu varum.. thaai maNNin vaasam..
Paruva kaatrai yedhirthu nikkum.. viLainilathil eeram..
kadal karaiyin sangil ketkum.. en thai mozhiyil paatu..
Marainthu maraindhu viLayaaduvaen.. Kanna muchi viLayaatu..

Kalai kaadhalanin pudhirukkinnum viDai theriyalaiya?
Vaayu bhagavan endru sonnal magizhchi adaivaiya?

Here is the translation.. There will be a lot of translation loss..

Kalai Kaadhala.. The lover of art.. is wondering who is this guy?

You seem to be introducing knots in hair.. just like how Naradha introduces knots and problems.. You seem to be a magician.. who is vociferously shaking the windows with black magic.. You also seem to be a deamon.. throwing mud into everyone’s eyes.. And you just dont seem to be stopping.. dont ever get tired.. Who are you?

Koondhalil sikkal uruvaakum Naradhana nee?
Jhannalai padapadakka vaikkum mandiravaadhiya nee?
Kannil maNN thoovaraye.. Maha asurana nee?
Oyaalmal sutthugiraaye.. kaLaippadaivaaya nee?
Adey.. Yaarada Nee?

Flowers are glowing because of me..
I am the one.. who throws the honey bees before the flowers..
The colourful birds are flying because of me..
Check out the the kites in front of your eyes..

MalargaL malarvadhu yennale..
Thaeniyai yeriyuvaen.. adhan munnale..
Parakkum vaNNa paravaigal yennale..
PattangaL parakkudhu un kann munnale..

I am misery..
I am the strom which kills 100s of people at once..
I am the smoke in cigar.. which kills you cell by cell..

Naan Thunbam!
Nooru paerai kollavandha puyal kaatrum naan..
ANu aNuvaai niruthi kollum suruttin pugaiyum naan..

I am Joy…
I am the long breath of a lady.. when a man hugs her for the first time..
I am the melodious sound from the flute of playful Lord Krishna..

Naan Inbam!
Un mudhal irukkathil avaL vidum perumoochum naan..
ViLaiyaadum kannanin Kuzhal paechum naan..

The fresh breeze will carry the smell of the motherland..
The monsoon wind will make the farm land wet..
Hold the sea shells on the sea shore.. and you can hear my mother tongue..
You cant see me.. I play hide and seek with you..

YiLam thaendral kondu varum.. thaai maNNin vaasam..
Paruva kaatrai yedhirthu nikkum.. viLainilathil eeram..
kadal karaiyin sangil ketkum.. en thai mozhiyil paatu..
Marainthu maraindhu viLayaaduvaen.. Kanna muchi viLayaatu..

Dont you know the answer to Kalai Kaadhalan’s puzzle yet?
Will you become happy.. if I tell you I am the Wind God!

Kalai kaadhalanin pudhirukkinnum viDai theriyalaiya?
Vaayu bhagavan endru sonnal magizhchi adaivaiya?
