A friend commented, affectionately :

Thedi thedi kidaicha friend Sir neenga.
Please bless us”

Meaning. “I searched and searched and got you as my friend. Sir, pl. bless us)

I replied:

Thedinaen, thedinaen, theruvellam
Mamiyar kidaiikavillai.
Azuthen. Pulampinaen.

Mattini show mudinchu
Marumakalae entrazhachu
VandAlae maharaasi
Vayatherichal kottikka!

தேடினேன் தேடினேன் தெருவெல்லாம்
மாமியார் கிடைக்கவில்லை
அழுதேன் புலம்பினேன்

மாற்றினி ஷோ முடிஞ்சு
மருமகளே என்றழைத்து
வந்தாலே மகராசி
வயித்தெரிச்சல் கொட்டிக்க

It is impossible to bring in, the essence, in translation. However, a rough meaning:

Searched and searched
For my mother in law, everywhere.
No success.
I wept and wept.

There she comes, the great lady
After watching the matinee show,
Addressing me affectionately
‘My DIL,’

My heart ❤️ burns!
