Now that I have posted translation of lot of love poems in my blog, as request from my friend I am posting Heroic (Puram ) poem from Purananuru to add variety to my blog. I will soon add Sithar poems to the blog.
If you wonder where the tradition of Hero build up in Tamil cinema(right from Rajni to Simbhu) comes, at the end of this poem you would get the idea.
This is a very famous poem and any Tamil student would have read it in his/her school days.
87.One among us!
Enemies, be careful when you take the field.
Among us is a warrior
who will face you in battle
He is like a wheel made over a month
by a carpenter who makes eight chariots
in a day.
Auvaiyar sings Atiyaman Netuman Anci
