Vaiyaththu Vaazhveergaal Naamum Nampavaikku
Cheyyum Kirisaigal Keleero Paarkadalul
Paiya Thuyinra Paramanadi Paadi
Neyyunnom  Paal Unnom Natkaale Neeradi
Maiyittu Ezhudhom Malarittu Naam Mudiyom
Seyyadhana Seyyom Theekkuralai Chenrodhom
Aiyamum Pichchaiyum Aandhanaiyum Kai Kaatti
 
Uyyumarenni Ugandhelor Empavai
 
 


 
Jai Sriman Narayana !!
