1.Bhayamenum pey thanai yadithom, poymmai,
Pambai pilanthu uyirai kudithom,
Viyan ulaganaithayum amudhena nugarum,
Veda vazhvinai kai pidithom.
2.Iraviyin oliyidai kulithom-oli,
Innamudhinai kandu kalithom,
Karavinil vandhu uyir kulathinai yazhikkum,
Kalan nadu nadunga vizhithom
3.Kaakai kuruvi engal jathi, neel,
Kadalum malayum engal kootam,
Nokku disayellam namandri verillai,
Nokka, nokka , kaliyattam
Play the drum of victory, play ,
Play the drum of victory.
1.We beat the ghost called fear, we split,
The snake of lies and drank its soul,
And started living the life prescribed by Vedas,
Which tastes even in this odd world as nectar.
2.We took bath in the rays of the Sun ,
We enjoyed seeing the nectar of good sound,
We made shiver and shiver the God of death,
Who comes secretly and takes away the life of a clan.
3.Crow and other birds belong to our caste ,
Long sea and mountain belong to our crowd.
In all directions that we see we do not say anything but ourselves,
And as we see and see we do only a dance of joy.
