Happy Independence Day!

This post is one day late but the sentiments remain the same.

Thamizha Thamizha- Vairamuthu:

thamizha thamizha naalai nam naalae
thamizha thamizha naadum nam naadae
en veedu thaai tamil nadu endrae sollada
en naamam indian endrae endrum nillada
thamizha thamizha naalai nam naalae
thamizha thamizha naadum nam naadae

nilam maaralaam kunam ondru dhaan
idam maaralaam nilam ondru dhaan
mozhi maaralaam porul ondru dhaan
kali maalalaam kodi ondru dhaan
thisai maaralaam nilam ondru dhaan
isai maaralaam mozhi ondru dhaan
nam India motham ondru dhaan vaa...

thamizha thamizha kangaL kalangaadhey
vidiyum vidiyum ullam mayangaadhey
thamizha thamizha kangaL kalangaadhey
vidiyum vidiyum ullam mayangaadhey
unakkullae indhiya raththam undaa illaiya
ondraana bharatham unnai kaakkum illaiya
thamizha thamizha naalai nam naalae
thamizha thamizha naadum nam naadae

Could there ever be better lyrics for a song?

Pffft. What happened to the Blog Roll? And btw. You left out an f in your Pffft. Must not change the spelling of universally accepted exclamations.

Also. Am thrilled with your loyalty to namma thai baasha. Glad you are not following in the footsteps of your sister, who is a disgrace to our superb language.

Have added you to the blogroll. How could you miss it, yours is the longest name on the list. Sorry for typing pffft with 2 t's. Pffft. Like saying that. Pffft!

P.S: Thamizh Vazhga!

I'M a disgrace?! You're a frickin Sanskrit student too! PFFFFFT.

The last time I checked there were only 3 f's in pffft. Oh and it is ironical that this is a post based on a patriotic song and there is already a fight on who is the better Tamilian. No wonder we struggle to live in harmony.

Madhuri. You are a disgrace because you cannot speak the language. I do admit that you make a few sparse attempts. But one must strive to achive perfection in one's mother tongue. So pffft.

Neon. There are exactly three f's in Pffft. One P and one t. However, in your comment on my blog, you made the mistake of spelling it with one p, two f's and one t, thereby making it "pfft" which probably means something else.

Okay. Found me on the Blog Roll. But I wish you to know that mine is NOT the longest on the Blogroll. The Society of people who have nothing to do beat me hollow. Pffft.
