No I don't mind or see any reason to mind. Its Konkani on one side (though I speak much) and Marathi on the other.

M.Karunanidhi's movie song

காகித ஓடம் கடலலை மீது

MOVIE : MARAKKA MUDIYUMA
MUSIC : RAMAMOORTHY TK.
SINGER : P.SUSHEELA.

kaagitha Odam kadalalai miidhu
The paper boat on the ocean waves

pOvathu pOlE muuvarum pOvOm

How it travels, (let) the three of us go.

aadharavinRi aazhnthidum Odam
The boat will sink without any shelter.

adhu pOl onRaay muuzhguthal nanRaam.
Likewise, it is good to drown together.

kaagitha Odam kadalalai miidhu
pOvathu pOlE muuvarum pOvOm

kOlamum pOttu kodigaLum ERRi
(He) decorated with floral designs (rangoli) and hoisted flags.

thEraiyum oatti thiiyaiyum vaiththaan
(He) pushed the chariot but set it on fire as well.

kaalamum paarththu nEram paarththu
Having chosen an auspicious time.

vaazhvaiyum iinthu vadhaikkavum seythaan
(He) gave life; along with it the suffering.

kaagitha Odam kadalalai miidhu
pOvathu pOlE muuvarum pOvOm

azhuvathai kEtka aatkaLum illai
There is no one to empathize with the crying soul.

aaRuthal vazhangga yaarumE illai.
None to console (us).

EzhaigaL vaazha idamE illai
No place for the poor to live.

aalayam edhilum aaNdavan illai.
There is no god in the temples.

kaagitha Odam kadalalai miidhu
pOvathu pOlE muuvarum pOvOm

thaayin madiyum nilaiththida villai
Mother's lap didn't last long.

thanthaiyin nizhalum kaaththida villai
Father's shadow didn't offer any protection.

aaRilum saavu nuuRilum saavu
Death can come at anytime.

ammaa enggaLai azhaiththidu thaayE.
Oh, Mother. Take us back.

kaagitha Odam kadalalai miidhu
pOvathu pOlE muuvarum pOvOm

காகித ஓடம் கடலலை மீது
போவது போலே மூவரும் போவோம்
ஆதரவின்றி ஆழ்ந்திடும் ஓடம்
அது போல் ஒன்றாய் மூழ்குதல் நன்றாம்
காகித ஓடம் கடலலை மீது
போவது போலே மூவரும் போவோம்

கோலமும் போட்டு கொடிகளும் ஏற்றி
தேரையும் வாட்டி தீயையும் வைத்தான்
காலமும் பார்த்து நேரம் பார்த்து
வாழ்வையும் ஈந்து வதைக்கவும் செய்தான்
காகித ஓடம் கடலலை மீது
போவது போலே மூவரும் போவோம்

அழுவதை கேட்க ஆட்களும் இல்லை
ஆறுதல் வழங்க யாருமே இல்லை
ஏழைகள் வாழ இடமே இல்லை
ஆலயம் எதிலும் ஆண்டவன் இல்லை
காகித ஓடம் கடலலை மீது
போவது போலே மூவரும் போவோம்

தாயின் மடியும் நிலைத்திட வில்லை
தந்தையின் நிழலும் காத்திட வில்லை
ஆறிலும் சாவு நூறிலும் சாவு
அம்மா எங்களை அழைத்திடு தாயே
காகித ஓடம் கடலலை மீது
போவது போலே மூவரும் போவோம்

Hi Arasu and others, how are new words coined/added to Tamil? I know there is a department for Tamil but is there any specific set of people who are dedicated to this?

The state government apparently has a ‘collection of words’ or sorkuvai , and there are a few projects and councils mentioned in this article , like the Tamil etymological dictionary project

By website , do you mean a platform through which suggestions reach the officials /administration ? I’m afraid I don’t know how to proceed with regard to that, PK .

If you mean in a general sense , this thread is as good a place as any for sharing your opinions and suggestions , considering that this thread has had more than 7.5 lakh hits till now ...

I had a few doubts, as I have been observing/watching videos.

1. Ennodu and En both mean 'my'. So can one use it interchangeably? Like "whose is this?" "Idhu ennodu." En". "My mother" "En amma/Ennodu amma"
2. What does enbathu mean then?
3. Whether to say "Vendum" or Vaeno" for I want. Its confusing as Vendaa means don't want. . Like if there is a Tamil restauranter, and I want to say to him "I want that" then "Sapaad vendum" or "Sapaad veano (I am not able to transliterate it properly but it sounds like that).
4. Off topic, but does TN govt have specific centres/programmes to teach Tamil to non-Tamils, considering influx of migrants? Like Alliance Francaise, Dubai Arabic centre.
5. Any programme for Tamil language promotion in border regions of TN/other states like Gadinadu nudi habbas by karnataka govt.
6. Sub-regions of TN? Like how Telangana, Rayalseema, Andhra for erstwhile AP?

Thanks

Thanks .
