  1. :-(( Translation dear…didn’t understand a word though u made me a lot curious and eager to read it – shaini

  2. @HBK,Harsha,Shaini: Translations wouldn’t read the same as it is in Tamil. But anyways, for understandability sake….

    Town is across the stream
    People are at waving distance,
    A lonely girl,
    She doesn’t cross the river.
    She doesn’t mix with the people.
    Is it because it is not in her fate?
    Is ir because there no way?
    Or is it because she doesn’t want to?
    Clueless questions sometimes make poems.

    **********

    In the stream of time,
    Deeds are awaiting
    Duty is the boat
    Why worry my friend?
    If you sail ahead, you will reach the people.
    If not, you’ll remain with confusion in your heart.

    So as not to be bothered with thousands of questions,
    You need to build a fence.
    Fence is nothing but what you consider as clueless questions.
    There are no clueless questions that arise in anybody.
    If they do, they don’t end up clueless either.

    I see the one who made me seek her friendship,
    Without the trace of friendship herself.
    I saw and I knew
    I saw and was shocked
    That in time’s mischeivies, your heart has been burdened too.

    **********

    I hid a puzzle inside my poem,
    So that no one understands it.
    You,
    Found the meaning,
    Explained it,
    Won by salute!

    “One snakes knows another’s traces”
    I read this adage someday
    It springs somewhere within me today

    To the well wisher who cares for my good.
    I appreciate your poetic reply
    I am thankful to your humanity.

    That is a horrible translation but you guys got the meaning, don’t you?
