(1)aan enna penn enna,
nee enna naan enna,
ellaam oar inam dhaan,
ada naadenna veedenna,
kaadenna medenna,
ellaam oar nilam dhaan,
neeyum paththu maasam,
naanum paththu maasam,
maarum indha vaesham,

what(/who) is man? what(/who) is a women?
what(/who) are you?what(/who) am I?
all of us are the same ( species/collection),
what is the world? what is the house?
all are nothing but the same ground,
you come in after 10 months ( born after 10 months of pregnancy),
so do  I ,
our acts (forms, thoughts, emotions etc)  change.

(2)onnukkonnu aadharavu
ullaththile en pirivu
kannukkulle bedham ille
paarpadhile en pirivu

each of us should support each other,
why is there separation in hearts,
 both eyes are the same (both the eyes act together to provide vision, each eye doesn’t show you a different image ),
but then why is there a separation in your vision? ( in our society)

(3)ponnum porul pogum varum
anbu mattum povadhille
thedum panam odividum
deivam vittu povadhille

all the gold, materialistic things will go and come in life ( not constant),
only love ( affection) will never leave,
the money that we search for constantly ( all our lives) will run away,
god will never leave us.

(4)medaikkum maalaikkum kodikkum aasaippattu
vettukkal kuththukkal raththangal povadhenna

aspiring for the podium ( popularity/prominence) , garlands ( accolades) , crores ( money) ,
why is there  bloodshed and violence all around.

(5)idhai purinjum
unma therinjum
innum mayakkamaa

even after you understood it,
and after you realized the truth,
why are you still in bewilderment

(6)sondham bandham serndhirundhaa
soththu sugam thevai ille
bandham vittu pochchudhunnaa
vaalvadhile laabam ille
ennam mattum serndhirundhaa
indrum endrum sogamille
kandrai vittu thaai pirinju
kaanum sugam edhumillae
oorukkum perukkum carukkum ishttapattu
vaalgindra vaalkkaikku endrendum arthamille

when all you dear ones and relatives stay together,
there is no need of materialistic wealth,
when all the relationships break away,
there is no meaning in living this life,
when your thoughts(feelings) are united,
never will there be sorrow,
when a mother separates from its  the child,
there is no happiness,
the life we live by aspiring for land, for big name , and car ( materialistic desires) ,
has no meaning
