Naan unnai pirinthirukkum pozhuthu
En vaarthaigalin ethiroliyum
Un kaathil naan sonna kaathalum...
Un manathil irukkum soonyatthai
Naan thirumbum varai
When the naayaki (heroine) is going far away from the naayakan (hero).
Will you think of me
When I am separated from you?
Will the echo of my words,
My love,whispered in your ear,
When you are faced with emptiness
Will you fill it up?
Will you remember those times
When I was there?
Will you wait
Until I return?
Has love ever changed, over the millenia? The need for two people to be together is probably the most powerful emotion of all, perhaps only exceeded by the love of a mother for her child.
I'll write about that next....but meanwhile, Gir, which I have never visited before, beckons! It will be blisteringly hot. I wish I'd chosen a trip to the Himalaya instead :)
