The power of virtue and fidelity!

Virtuous woman who is faithful
to the spouse and dutiful;
Who may not even pray the almighty;
But, If she says, Oh.. Rain.. you must thrash by,
The rain will fall instantaneously,
The power of virtue and fidelity!

Theivam thozhaa.al kozhunaR RozhuthezhuvaaL
peiyenap peiyum mazhai. (ThirukkuRaL 55)

Thames! Beautiful Thames!

Thames! Beautiful Thames!
Thames River arises at Gloucestershire,
flows thro' London, the capital of U.K;

Thames River is tidal in London
With a rise and fall of 7 meters,
The river is fed by more than 20 tributaries;

The Thames River which flows alongside
several other towns and cities -
Oxford, Reading, Henley-on-Thames,
Windsor, Kingston upon Thames and Richmond -
is beautiful;

Thames River has a total length of 215 mile,
River banks on either side are beautiful,
Pavement strolling stretch on either side
is beautiful;

Boats sailing in Thames river are beautiful,
Young women who sail in the boats are beautiful,
White swan pairs' which swim in the river are beautiful;

Watching swans from the bridge,
- which spans Reading and Caversham -
somersaulting to catch the fish
is still more exciting and beautiful!
Thames! Beautiful Thames!
Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

Freedom Is My Birth Right

I can't appreciate the beautiful
brunettes who pass along my paths,
I can't praise openly and boldly
You are beautiful and lovely;

I can't sleep under the shades of Margosa tree,
Along the long stretch of four way road, free
With my folded hands as support like a pillow
Like a common man and the country fellow;

I have no manly boldness
To pull the emergency chain with goodness,
While the commuters in the train
Speak of politics loudly in vain;

I had no guts and mood
To spit the salty food
Served to me in the house
Where I went to ask for cash;

A liar on the stage
I can't climb the stage
And knock on the head
With folded fist of my hand;

I am not bold to announce
the death of a few notorious politician
As a national wellness and profit
And good for everyone;

I am confined and had no authority
To send the indecent persons, to the zoo -
Who make different noises and boos
While playing national anthem;

Freedom is my birth right
Is just a formal say,
But I had so many inhibitions
And restrictions! Where is my freedom?
