A beautiful Badaga Poem by Mathan Rameshbabu

A beautiful Badaga Poem by Mathan Rameshbabu [Muscat, Oman]


அவ்வெ நீரட்டுவ சொக

ஹிம்பர ஒலெய
அண்டனொகெ நீரு காசி
அவ்வெய கைதாரி உரு உஜ்ஜி நீரட்டுவ சொக
திரிகி சிக்குவ ஜெனவு
கூடி பந்துனடதெ

Avvey Neerattava Soga

Himbara oleya
andaanoge neera kaasi
Avvaiya kaidhaari uru ujji neerattuva soga
thirigi chikkuva jenavu
koodi bhandhunadadhey

The beauty of Badaga language is not only the style, substance and simplicity but the way it can bring out the inner feelings so powerfully. In this short poem Rameshbabu conveys the great comfort one feels when the mother gives a hot water bath
