English translation



Will you be able to tell bird,

Will you be able to tell



Ask the very able  Muruga himself,

To come and talk with  all of us



1.Ask That darling son of  the divine lord,

Who dances in the temple  at Chidambaram,

To come here , join with us  and become joyous


2.How was it  that he completely  learned  to forget

The deed  done at  dusk , Near  the pond of water lily,

To  the jasmine plant which was there,


3.Ask him to deeply  think about  the wonderful words,

That  he told when he was walking holding my hand,

In the desert after he  took an oath on his Vel.
