Tamils - a Trans State Nation..

"To us all towns are one, all men our kin.
Life's good comes not from others' gift, nor ill
Man's pains and pains' relief are from within.
Thus have we seen in visions of the wise !."
Tamil Poem in Purananuru, circa 500 B.C

Poem by Captain Vanati - English translation by Professor Peter Schalk

Poem in Tamil

Her forehead shall be adorned
not with kunkumam (but) with red blood.
All that is seen in her eyes
is not the sweetness of youth (but) the tombs of the dead.
Her lips shall utter
not useless sentences
(but) firm declarations of those who have fallen down.
On her neck will lay
no tali, (but) a Cyanide capsule!
She has embraced
not men , (but) weapons!
Her legs are going and searching,
not for searching a relationship with relatives
(but ) looking towards the liberation of the soil of Tamililam.
Her gun will fire shots.
No failure will cause the enemy to fall!
It will break the fetters of Tamililam!!
Then from our people's lips
a national anthem will tone up!!!
