FOR HER -"PLACE"

Image
THE PLACE WHERE WE MET
WHERE WE EXCHANGED HEARTS

THE PLACE WHERE WE FELT
WHERE WE DECIDED TO START.

THE PLACE SO MUCH MEANT
IS THE PLACE WHERE WE WALKED APART.

THE PLACE SO LONELY NOW
IS THE PLACE WHERE I DECIDED TO END MYSELF NOW.

THE BATTLE of 'Thirpurambiyam.' DAY 1 ( EPISODE 2)

Image
Day 1


The battle has begun. The mighty sun rose to acknowledge the beginning of this war. The army from two sides ran outraged into each other. The arrows showered from both sides. The cry, the shrivel created fear among gods. The holy land is wet with blood to satisfy the gods.

ADITA KARIKALAN: On a mount he waits, He waits with his cavalry. He waits watching his tigers battle. He waits for the time to raid in.

 In the battlefield. Their army might be big. It might stand long! Long as that sea herself!!! But they don’t have mettle warriors; Warrior kings like APARJITHAN and PRITHIVIPATHI. They enter like battle men from hell. They fight as if they were born to kill. The pandyan army falls thought their way. The chariots of enemy and their mounted cavalry routs in. Their strike never missed. Through the heads of the Pallavan ranks, they fire. And Now it is time for the TIGER to march.

ADITA KARIKALAN BEGINS RAID.


Mounted in his cavalry, Followed by his willful raiders; He strikes. Like a flow of a cyclonic wind…

THE BATTLE of 'Thirpurambiyam.' (episode 1)

Battle of Thirupurambiyam



A battle that is to be spoken for ages, A battle that is to be written in history. A battle that is watched even by the Gods in heaven. The meet of two great kingdoms, The Pallavas and Pandyas. Two mighty armies have decided to test the strength.
Kailasan, A soldier in the ranks of cholan army. He is strong, stubborn and tough. The chitoor in his wife kept at wedding ceremony had not even faded. Kantharvi, his wife,” Here my dear take your sword. “Aditakarikalan” is preparing an army”  “Take heed, fight and kill as many enemies as possible. There is a soul waiting for here in Uraiyur. She will love to see you back alive. Come back as a hero, as one who swirled his sword to remove enemy’s head. Or as one dead-fighting a brave battle.I should hear of your bravery Go my dear man.” He leaves with unspoken words and unexpressed love that he had for her. Their eyes met each other and it spoke a thousand words. With heavy heart, he departed. He departed to transcend from an ordinary s…

"வாதாபியின் காதல்"

Image
பரஞ்சோதி,





திண்ணிய திடமான உடல் கொண்டவன்.  நிமிர்ந்த நடையும், நேர்முக பார்வையும் கொண்டவன். யாரையும் கண்டு அஞ்சாத உறுதி கொண்டவன். இயலா நிலை என்பதை அறியாதவன். போர்க்களம் பல கண்டு; அதன் பரிசாக அறுவது வடுக்கள்
கொண்டவன். ஆயிரம் பேர் கொண்டு எதிர்ப்பினும்;  தன் வாளாற்றலால் எதிரியை அஞ்சி ஓட செய்பவன். நரசிமவர்மபல்லவனின்  படைத்தளபதி.

'அவன்- பரஞ்சோதி'

"பன்னிரெண்டாயிரம் களிர்களை கொண்டு வருகிறேன்.  இருபத்தாயிரம் புரவிகள் கொண்டு வருகிறேன். எண்ணற்ற படைஞர்கள் கொண்டு வருகிறேன். என் மாமன்னன் நரசிமன்னோடு , இலங்கையின்,  இளவரசன் மனவர்மண்ணோடு வருகிறேன். உன் கரு விழிகளை ரசிப்பதற்கு இல்லை! என் காதலை சொல்லி உன்னை
 வென்று செல்லவும்  இல்லை! உன்னாடின்மிது படை எடுத்து வருகிறேன் என் உயிரே! உன் ஊங்கன்னோர் புலிகேசியை வீழ்த்தி
வாதாபி கொள்ள வருகிறேன்!!"
இருண்டு வருடம் முன்பு;

"அன்று நான் வாதபியில் ஒரு வழிப்போக்கன்.  நடராஜன் நடமாடும் குகை கோவிலில் உன்னை முதலில்
கண்டேன். உன் நிலவென தோய அழகில்; உன்
கருமேகம் போல் அடர்ந்த கூந்தலில், உன் புனைவனப்பில், உன் வசிகரிக்கும் மெல்லிய குரலில்
காதல் கொண்டேன்.நீ புலிகேசியின் மகள் என்…

SHE:
"THIS MORNING WASN’T THE SAME AS YESTERDAY. WHERE ARE YOU? WHERE HAVE YOU GONE SO EARLY FROM BED? THAT LAZY LITTLE GRIN, THAT SMILE AND TWIST SAYING,”COFEE DEAR” IS MISSED HERE. WHERE ARE YOU? ALL THAT YOU CARED TO LEAVE IS A NOTE!! IS THIS IS HOW YOU LOVE ME? OH MY DEAR STUPID, ALL THAT FIGHT WE HAD IS BECAUSE WE LOVE EACH OTHER TOO MUCH. YOU THINK YOU HURT ME?

A SONNET - FOR MY ETERNAL LOVE

FOR YOU MY ETERNAL LOVE



For those were days in heaven; those were days to talk atop. With hands clung, We chatter. With my shoulder to hold you, We fix glaze. We walk with splanchnic sea and moon to clatter.
Over the chaise, We ride. With thy breath rhyme, And thy silky hair blending tune, We ride. The feel of thy flawless skin adds to chime. With you beside, the laws are far defied.
Now, I take on the walk and ride. But now, It's a stride lonely. What shall I say that Breeze, that moon, wave and bird? Will they allow a question about you to pass? I tat.
"You love or love me not". But eternal love of mine, shall never fade! For, thou art 'my love'.




(The sonnet is the most common form of poetry and the most difficult form I found until now. It has 14 verses divided into 3 quatrains with each having four lines. The 3 rd quatrain introduces the change in theme or twist in poem. The poem ends with a se-stet with brings the resolution to the twist generally.
 The verses follow iambic…

JOURNEY

This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 19; the nineteenth edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton.JOURNEY                            a journey with her. (based on some true events)




                                 This is my usual journey now, the usual route, the one that I take home from my college. The mode of transport is the one, which I never liked before but now, has become an interesting thing for me. Yeah the train journey, for I get to meet many people and each one of them had a different story to tell.

                 Here it is once again a Saturday afternoon and as usual, I slipped from my classes like an hour and half earlier. There is no time to inform sir as it is 12.35 now and the train is on due by 1pm; well I had to rush and convincing sir is a thing I can handle later. Rushing up to the hostel, kicking and pulling my friend out to make him…
