'மதி'யின் தாக்கம்

(thanglish format & rough english translation in comments section)

மதி மயக்கம்

கல்லூரி நினைவு - என்
உதட்டோரம் புன்னகைக் கீற்று

பூரண மதியை, மதி இழந்து
சுற்றும் மின்மினிகளைப் போல

அந்த 'மதுமதி'யைச்
சுற்றிய நண்பர்களை எண்ணி ......

ம்.... எட்டாக் கனியாகவே
இருந்து விட்டாளே அம்'மதி'!!!


'மதி' மறைந்த நேரம்

மத்தியப் பூங்கா,
மேகத்தின் ஊடே
மதி மறைந்த நேரம்

அவன் அணைப்பில்
அவள், நச்சரித்தாள்..
பாக்கிப் பணத்திற்கு

படிக்கும் மகனுக்கு
புத்தகம் வாங்க..
தன்னை அப்புதைகுழியில்
தள்ளியவனை நொந்தபடி..

'Mathi' has two meanings in tamil - It implies both 'Mind'and 'Moon'... so, here it goes my rough translation


Just a smile,
having a thought
College days

When I recall
my friends
who went
around that

Like those
'Mind' less
stars going
around that 'Moon'

Though she kept
them always at a


Hiding Time

Its time for the moon
to hide behind the clouds
Its the central park

She, within his warm hands,
started pestering for money

To buy books for her
school going son..
while blaming the person
who pushed her into that

Ram, it was wonderful to read your 'mathiyin thaakkam' . Mathi maRaintha nEram was especially brilliant. Honestly, I feel the 'rough' English translation was good too.

p.s. mathumathiyai surriya nanbargal... Didn't you join the club?

Hi Ram,
Its fantastic and I like the way you had mentioned an information germane to "moon".Mathiyaal mathi izantha.....beautiful and captivating lyrics.....keep rolling the ball.
Do you know how the word lunatic meaning madness got is genesis?
When a person gets exposed to the lunar rays of moon for a pretty long time,its believed that the person may become a mental and hence the madness is also coined and called "Lunatic"
You have put across this script in a picture perfect astute manner.....rain or shine ur blogs are the fine (very very very fine and enjoyable)
