The music director must have asked the lyricist to employ old classical Tamil language for this song. The lyricist probably took it to his heart and went one step farther. He lifted the words and lines from the 2000 years old classics. Many a word and line of this song can be found in Sangam literature of Tamil.

If anyone wants to know the meaning of the lyrics of the above song, they can find it in one of my earlier posts in this thread. Search for 'narumugaiye'.

CY,

I haven't been living in TN for very long and I haven't had opportunities to read Tamil even for many years. So, the latest words for new technology terms are not my strength.

No worries, Arasu. I was just asking if any one would know - was curious. I couldn't find the translation on google.

This definition may run into an issue.

Ever since the induction of A320 aircraft even passenger planes can be flown on autopilot and land by autopilot.

It may become common for planes of all sizes to fly unmanned in the future.

Thendral Vanthu Theendum Pothu Enna Vannamo Manasula
When breeze caresses (me), it is music to my heart.

Vannam means many things - color, music, shape, etc.

Thingal Vanthu Kaayum Pothu Enna Vannamo Ninapula
Whenever the moon shines, (my) thinking is colourful.

Vanthu Vanthu Poguthamma, Ennamellam Vannamamma
It comes and goes, and makes my thoughts happy;

Ennaganlukku Aethapadi Vannamellam Maarumamma
According to the mindset, colours keep changing.

Unmaiyamma Ullatha Naanum Sonnen

Evarum Sollaamale Pookkalum Vaasam Veesuthu
Without anyone asking, flowers give away sweet smell.

Uravum Illaamale Iru Manam Aetho Pesuthu
Without any relationship, two hearts converse

Evarum Sollaamale Kuyil Ellam Thaena Paaduthu
Without anyone asking, nightingales sing sweetly.

Ethuvum Illaamale Manasellam Inippaa Inikkuthu
For no particular reason, the heart feels sweet.

Oda Neeroda Intha Ulagam Athu Pola
This world is like the water in a stream. (odai - stream; ulagam - world)

Odum Athu Odum Intha Kaalam Athu Pola
It will keep running; Time is like that.

Nilaiyaa Nillaathu Ninaivil Varum Nirangale
Colors! that keep roaming in the memories! (vannam = niram = color; nilai - firm, ; nil - stand; ninaivu- memory)

Eram Vizhunthaale Nilathile Ellam Thulirkuthu (eram - wetness, moisture; nilam - ground, earth)
When land gets wet, plants take roots.


Nesam Poranthaale Udambellam Aeno Silirkuthu
When one finds affection, the body sprouts.

Aalam Vizhuthaaga Aasaigal Oonjal Aaduthu
Like the hanging roots of the banyan tree, the desires swing;

Alaiyum Ala P°le Azhagellam K°lam P°duthu
Like the ceaseless waves, the beauty draws patterns.

I like the rendition of this song originally sung by Vani Jayaram despite a feint Malayalam accent of the singer which, in my opinion, only adds to the beauty.

However, some mispronunciations need to be taken care of. The use of 'thaedi kondradhu' instead of 'thaedi kondathu' is a serious mistake.

'Thaedi kondathu' means I had found (a way) for myself whereas, 'thaedi kondradhu' means, I found and killed, totally changing the meaning.




malligai en mannan mayangum
ponnaana malarallavo?

Isn't Jasmine the golden flower that
my king (husband in this case) swoons over?

malligai - jasmine
mannan - king
mayangu - faint, swoon
pon - gold
ponnaana - golden
malar - flower
allavo - isn't it?

The song prays for world peace. The movie 'Kannathil Muthamittal' portrays the story of a child that is separated from its parents in war torn Srilanka and reaches India to live with adopted parents.

Vellai pookal ulagam engum malarhave
Vidiyum bhoomi amaidhikkaaga vidigavey
MaN mael manjal velichcham vizhugavey
Malare sOmbal muritthu ezhugavey

Kuzhandhai vizhikkattumey, thaayin kadhakadhappil
Ulagam vidiyattumey, pillayin sirumugha sirippil,

Vellai ...

Kaattrin paer isayum, mazhai paadum paadalgalum
Oru mounam pol inbam.....tharumoO...
KOdi keerthanamum , kavi kortha vaarthaigalum
Thuli kanneer thulikku arttham.....tharumoO.....aha ..ha

Vellai .....

Engu sirukuzhandhai, than kaigal neetidumO
Angu thOndrayO...... kollai nilavey...
Engu manithainam, pOr oindhu saindhidumo
Angu koovadhO...... vellai kuyiley .....

Vellai ......

Translation--
Let white flowers bloom everywhere in this world.
Let the dawn herald peace on Earth.
Let the yellow light (of Sun) shine on the Earth, And
Let the flowers wake up from their slumber.

Let the children wake in the warmth of the mother's embrace,
Let the world dawn in the smile of a small faced baby.

The music of the wind and the songs of the rain
Will they give the pleasure of silence?
A thousand hymns composed with care by the poet
Will it provide the meaning of a drop of tear?
Ah-ha-ha-ha, ah-ha-ha,

Where the little baby extends its hands,
Oh abundant Moon! Will you shine there?
Where the human race rests without a war,
there, oh white cuckoo, you please sing.

Sangam Tamil landscape in Malayalam

This is cross posting from Tamil History thread. I am not sure how to point to that post. Hence posting afresh.

http://www.thehindu.com/news/nationa...le17744661.ece

Malayalam novelist Manoj Kuroor has succeeded in going where most Tamil writers have not Śpenning a story set in the Tamil Sangam period, imagining (in Malayalam) a 2,000-year-old landscape with kings, chieftains, warriors, singers, dancers (and their instruments), communities divided on the basis of their profession, and in particular the last seven philanthropists (the 'Kadaiezhu Vallalkal') and the constant wars among them. The novel, 'Nilam poothu malarnna naal'('The day the land bloomed and blossomed') has now reached Tamil readers in an elegant translation by K.V. Jeyasri as 'Nilam poothu malarantha naal', published by Vamsi Books. The 312-page novel is priced at Rs 250.
