[Kappalottiya Thamizhan] Endru thaniyum indha sudhandira thaagam

This song would be an apt way to end our 68th Independence day, for these thoughts will linger in our mind until the basic necessities (food, clothes and shelter) are readily available to each and every individual. #Bharathi will be forever the greatest poet the world has ever seen. The song is an adaptation of one of his great works, for the movie #KappalottiyaThamizhan. Sung by #ThiruchiLoganathan and composed by #GRamanathan. Happy Independence day!!!

(1) என்று தணியும் இந்த சுதந்திர தாகம்?
 (2) என்று மடியும் எங்கள் அடிமையின் மோகம்?
 (3) என்றெமது அன்னை கை விலங்குகள் போகும்?
 (4) என்றெமது இன்னல்கள் தீர்ந்து பொய்யாகும்?

endru thaniyum indha sudhandira thaagam
endru madiyum engal adimaiyin moogam…
endraemadhu annai kai vilangugal poogum
endraemadhu innalgal theerndhu poiyaagum

When will this thirst for freedom get quenched?
When will our fascination for slavery die?
When will the hand cuffs on our mother’s hands (motherland) break?
When will our miseries end (and become a lie (no longer true))?

(5) பஞ்சமும் நோயும் நின் மேய்யடியாற்கோ!!!
 பாரினின் மேன்மைகள் வேர்ரினியாற்கோ!!!
 (6) தஞ்சம் அடைந்த பின் கை விடலாமோ!!!
 (7) தாய் உந்தன் குழந்தையை தள்ளிட போமோ!!!

panjamum nooiyum nin meiadiyaarkoo…
parinin maenmaigal vaeriniyaarkoo…
thanjam adaintha pin kai vidalaamoo…
thai unthan kuzhandhaiyai thalida poomoo…

Why are the famine and illness to all your (goddess sakthi) followers?, and
why are all the privileges in this world to some one else?
Is it fair to abandon us after we came to you for refuge?
Will a mother distance and abandon her own child?
