A saint poet of world renown from India
Gave his magnum opus Thirukkural kindly
Two thousand years ago quite relevant now
On his birth day today in reverence we bow!
Think of great couplets thirteen hundred and thirty
In ancient language Tamil with all beauty
All subjects under the sun one can think of sure
Dealt with in wonderful words of wisdom quite pure!
Poet Bharathi’s was not an exaggeration
When with joy, proclaimed in all appreciation:
“Giving Valluvan to this wonderful world
Great Tamilnadu attained sky high fame quite bold”!
Universal message Thirukkural gives nice
For the people over the world to follow wise.
Translated in all world languages respected
Next only to Bible and Quoran quite sacred!
Born in the family of weavers in Chennai
Made Tamilnadu and India proud with his
Words of wisdom of eternal truth in the world
Stand tall to help and guide the people in the globe bold!
“Valluvar Kottam” in Chennai put up in memory of the Saint Poet Thiruvalluvar.
