Indira Renganathan


Vaanoli(Radio) Valentine


Politicians gesturing their denial
waving black
Exhorted television channelled
To show-talk pros and cons
Vandalizing public rallying
Against intimidation too
Annotating authors arrowing
Samples from Bharath-puranas
Oldies like me worried much
Off the way extended unnoted

What though jailed in commotion
Priest Valentine in confusion
Approbated a folkband accomplished
Valentine over Vaanoli-Nellai
Folks of folklore from Kovilpatti
Banded with udukku, thala, kudam, kattai..
Somewhat melody sworn in so, so
Valentine celebration validated
Meantime Manmathan burnt to ashes
Villu paatu(bow song) wished Rathi
In ressurection to Rathi invisible Ananga
Invincible cupid too invisible to everyone
Bound to flower-arrows Vaanoli Nellai
She chose no wonder an apt lore

    Beautiful title indeed.When the air blows in your yard how can you stop the fragrance that comes with it! ! !
    I fear the saint would have been in great dilemma if He was to visualise the din on his doctrine.

That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
