Nirpathuvae Nadapathuve Parapathuve

Neengalellam Soppanam Thaano

Pala Thotra Mayakangalo

Karpadhuve Ketpathuve Karudhuvadhe

Neengalellam Arpa Maayaygalo

Ummul Aalndha Porul illaiyo

Vaanagame Ilaveyile Maracharive

Neengalellam Kaanalin Neero

Verum Kaatchi Pizhai Thaano

Ponathellam Kanavinaipol

Puthainthazhinthe Ponathanaal

Naanum Oor Kanavo

Intha Gnalamum Poi Thaano

Kaalam Endre Oru Ninaivum

Kaatchi Endre Pala Ninaivum

kolamum Poigalo

Angu Gungalum Poigalo

Kaanpadhellam Maraiyum Endraal

Maraindhadhellam Kaanbamandro

Naanum Oor Kanavo

Intha Gnalamum Poi Thaano


The lifeless things that stand still,

The beings that can walk, and those which fly at will!

Are you a mirror image of what I see in my dreams ?

A multifaceted illusion which makes me believe the world is jus as it seems ?!

The things that I learn,

what I hear, and the things that I think that forms the underlying pattern!

is it all just a hallucination?

Without any deeper sense of meaning or notion ?

The infinitely vast sky,

The pleasant warmth of sunlight and the green trees on mountain side that slopes by!

Are you like the ever elusive mirage, around the bend ?

Just my erroneous points of view, in the end ?

Everything thats gone and lost fast,

Seems like a dream, buried in the past!

I would be gone one day too! Just a living dream - Am I ?

The whole universe, one big lie ?!

The placidity of the viewpoint in a period of time, 

But disguised within it are a million points of view, given by senses of mine!

Are all the appearances surreal?

Characters and characteristics just unreal ?

Everything that we see would disappear forever, someday!

Would we ever see them come back, from all the way ?

I would be gone one day too! Just a living dream - Am I ?

The whole universe, one big lie ?!
