I was filling my blogs with music as usual. And I came across I had never heard. Soooooo beautifully sung by hari haran ji. Out of curiosity, I researched and found out it was one of the poems written by barathiyar on his wife, kannamma. :O wah lah!!!
The meaning was so beautiful from what I could make out of the little tamil knowledge I have.
That began my expedition in writing the meaning of whatever tamil poems that interest me. Here's the first key turn I've giving my new love and the tiny venture.
